As I struggle to decide to air cool or liquid cool my upcoming desk-pc conversion, I'm looking at the options out there for air to cool my i7-3820. I'm really liking the bequiet! lineup and debating between the Dark Rock TF or the Dark Rock Pro 4. I like that the TF is a little lower profile because then the desk doesn't have to be as deep, but then again maybe it would anyway because I'd probably still need some air space above it?
As far as cooling goes the TF is rated at 220W TDP and the Pro 4 is rated at 250W TDP, but then again TDP doesn't really directly related to real world cooling performance.
Any thoughts on these in a desk-pc?
