Whether its reliable, I mean, I haven seen any reports of massive falws/failures with the H115i Pro yet. (like the tubes falling off and spilling coolant all over the system like I've seen a few reports of with their previous pump/block design)

Its probably reliable enough for a non-critical gaming system, but if reliability is of utmost importance I'd go with a big air cooler.

OP...the Corsair 115i 240 wil be fine for your CPU....its the one Id recommend....cheap...as in below $175....and decent temps.....I used this when bench testing my 9900K prior to installing in my Custom Loop....was getting Max Temps of 75c running various Stress Tests on a 9900K @ 5.1 Ghz vcore 1.35v.......

....it will give you far better results than any Air Cooler and nice looking as well!!

....just be aware the life of these AIO Coolers has been said to be around 3 yrs....but considering how cheap they are ...they are disposable

Stop spreading misinformation CLC coolers are not better than the top end air coolers unless we are talking 280mm or bigger
The H115i is not cheap either when you can get a Noctua NH-D15 which is just as good if not better more quiet and more reliable for $50 less

H115i Pro working great here too on a 9900K, moved from high end air myself and the thing doesn't make a peep.

If you want to go air, look into the Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT. Bit cheaper than the Noctua NH-D15 (typically) and depending on what review you look at either performs just as well or outperforms it.

Pick a cpu cooler that looks good to you.


Nearly all decent sized air coolers will cool well.


Nearly all AIO/CLC setups will work for you, except perhaps 120/140mm single rads. MAYBE those would not be able to handle it.


Lots of people who down-talk the AIO/CLC stuff forget that AMD successfully cooled down the FX9590 with a single 120mm setup, that chip being a 220 watt TDP monster, regardless of actual performance of the chip.




My point is, these days, you can definitely afford to buy based on cosmetic/appearance/noise over performance these days.





So go ahead, pick 3-5 of your favorites, and post them up, or find some reviews. Im sure most of the stuff you pick will work for you.




There are a few 9900K owners with Noctua D15s who run at 4.8-5ghz. Those 9900ks are far hotter at factory than your 8700k

Please......going by experience Bud.....not what I "read" on the Internet or "what a friend said"

Heres a shot of my Test Bench set up (prior to going in my 900D)
This is with an even cheaper H60 AIO......bloody thing suprised me as I was sble to get to 5.1 Ghz running stress tests with very good cooling...so obvously a 240 or 280 or 360 AIO is going to be a heck of s lot better!!!



OP....this will work fine for you......

If you can throw on an extra set of Fans and go "push/pull"....as said I had an H60 (think I paid $75 for it) set up in push/pull and worked surprisingly well on a 9900K (which generate far more heat than a 8700K) with push/pull fans.

Yeah that H60 was pretty quiet on my bench.....just the 2 fans on the 120 rad were all i heard...couldnt here the pump at all and being ably to get to 5.1 Ghz ay 1.385v surprised me !!!! Although I didnt push P95 as I know what temps would get to...but Cinebench....and Intel XTU and Realbench were around 75c - 78c .....under load

with this really low end AIO (push/pull) in the pic in previous post

I dont recommend AIOs , buy a decent Air cooler .
I had Corsair H105(one of best 240 AIO on market / thick radiator ) on my 8700k @5,1ghz (1,4V) but i didnt like the pump noise and the 2x 12cm fan . So i sold it and bought Noctua D15S with an extra 2nd fan (only comes with 1x NF A-15 pwm fan )
2x 14cm fan vs pump + 2x 12cm fan . As u can imagine Noctua is waaay more quiet . And my temps dropped by 4-5C during load with the Noctua.
Not to mention when your AIO's pump die (it will happen sooner or later ) , temps will rocket jump instantly ,on heavy OC risking the mobo wont have time to shutdown in time and damage the CPU .
On tower cooler if one or even both fan die at same time (not likely ) nothing will happen . 1kg copper /aluminium can alone dissipete a lot heat before cpu throttling / shutdown.

Found this ...for the OP to sort thru.....by the way...they use the term AIO and CLC as one of the same as well

http://www.relaxedtech.com/reviews/n...quid-coolers/1

Granted its a 4 yr old article with a 4790K at 4.5 Ghz and vcore 1.23v ....the 8700K will run a lot warmer, especially if your going for a 5 Ghz OC and pushing 1.38v !!!!

....boils down really to cost I suppose about $50 - $75 more for the AIO vs the Noctua (when I check Newegg.ca)
....life of the AIO vs Air (obviously the Air Cooler will outlast your build...AIO Id say likey 3 yrs top)

...Footprint ...once installed its what you see...huge...could be challenges with RAM sticks..I recall years ago before going liquid have the Megahalem with 2*120 fans...monstrous....

Personally the $50 - $75 isnt a big deal (for me anyhow)....I also consider them disposable....the aesthetics and looks are important..(I find these monster Air Coolers unsightly, but thats also a personal opinion)....room in your case to work on other things (is impossible once its installed)......all good stuff for the OP to consider

They don't use AiO and CLC interchangeably in that article. Every cooler in that article is a CLC. CLCs are a subset of AiO. All CLCs are AiOs. All AiOs are not CLCs. It would be like quoting an article about apples and saying they use "apples" and "fruit" as one in the same.

And that article is a nice way of saying that the NH-D15 is a better choice if you possess the sense of hearing, while CLCs may be a better choice if you are more visually oriented and find one-size-fits-none tubing less offensive than a large air cooler.

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