Its about 35c in my apartment, probably more because I am nearly naked and I'm still hot but I dont have to dial back my overclock at all lol. I can game on it no problem, mobo temps at 43c in game, normally about 10c less and let me tell you it is gross in here. I'm pretty impressed. My kid dropped a pencil into my portable ac and the squirrel cage shredded itself. All the BTU's have been lost.

Actually, if that 67.1c result from earlier is repeatable and consistent (would need to run P95 for a direct comparison), that would be about what I should expect, shouldn't it? Around 4c higher than the H100i.

Looking at this review: https://www.hardocp.com/article/2015...iquid_cooler/3 the H100i was beating out the top air coolers by a little bit. And also here: https://www.overclock.net/forum/22111036-post22.html where the H100 was a little ahead of the TS140P.

I would just be trading off a few C for a much quieter system, especially after I take care of that top grill.

You should tighten the mounting screws untill the take up all the space in mount. Basically tighen until they quit turning .. just don't go crazy and strip/break them.

Haha, yes, definitely. I think I may have left this one a little bit too loose because when I first built the thing, I overtightened the cooler and it wouldn't boot. But it does seem like it helped a bit.

I did run P95 for 1.5 hours this afternoon to get a more direct comparison. Ended up peaking at 71c, then dropping down and hovering in the 69.5-70.5 range depending on if my AC was running. Again using that HardOCP review as a kind of loose reference, I'm hoping that's around the ballpark of what I should be getting. When I ran the test with the H100i, I was running a very aggressive fan curve with Noctua A12x25s replacing the stock fans. So where that review had H110i "High" beating out the NH-D15 by ~6C, I figure being ~8C better in my situation fits.

Please keep in mind HardOCP test data is based on room ambient temperature, not temperature of air going into coolers.

Even worse, they are measuring temperature with a "MicroTemp EXP non-contact infrared thermometer". Infrared thermometers do not / cannot measure air temp. They measure non-contact surface temperature of surface they are pointed at and reflect off of, not the temperature of air inbetween thermeter and surface.



Look it up if you are not sure you can believe me.
