You are misunderstanding that, the DRP4 is capable of dissipating 250 thermal watts, it does not draw 250 watts. The only power draw is a couple of watts for the fan. No need to think about the PSU.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Stock is fine. If you want to OC, which on OCN would be yes, otherwise why be here lol. Then get a half decent air cooler and call it a day. The expensive AIOs are not worth it, if you must have water go custom loop then.

arctic freezer II 280 cheaper, cooler and quieter than big air coolers so not expensive and totally worth it.

What. That costs more than most air coolers and approximately the same/more than a Noctua.

cheaper or the same as the the noctua D14/15, the dark rock pro 4, deepcool assassin III in the UK. Cheaper air coolers don't come close to it.

What others said. Here Arctic Freezer II 280 prices are £70-91.00. Top tier air coolers start at about £40.00 and even most expensive (NH-D15) prices are £70-91.00. Even at same price as D15 a CLC won't even begin to last as long, and while it cools a little better at same noise levels when new, as pump wears it looses flow and thus cooling ability goes down. CLCs are definitely no going to be as dependable long term, and when CLC does die it's 99.999% of the time pump failure so no coolant flowing and no cooling at all .. system is dead until new cooler is installed. With air cooler only fan can fail and even with no cooler fan system will still work at low load .. and any fan can be held on cooler with rubber bands until replacement arrives so system is still functional.

This is something that all believers in CLC use like to ignore but it will, eventually arrive and cripple them.

Think it's the power of PROPAGANDA that is fooling the ignorant into believing the extreme hype of these badly designed products. Just have to look at current day AMERICAN leadership, where facts are no longer required and the belief in open LIES become their 24/7 mantra.

Very dangerous during theses times and thinking that an AIO system to outlast any BASIC Air Cooler becomes the unfortunate norm for 2020 and beyond.
