Noctua NH-D15 (Dual Fan) vs Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280mm (Ryzen 3900X)

I'm very pleased with the Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer II 280mm, i thought that it was going to be a sidegrade, after all, not many AIOs can outperform a dual fan NH-D15 while remaining quieter (and cooler)

I did run AIDA64 stress test (30 mins) with both coolers:

NH-D15:

CPU (Tctl/Tdie): Average [67.2c] Maximum [70c]
CPU Die: Average [67.2c] Maximum [70c]
CCD1: Average [64.6c] Maximum [74.5]
CCD2: Average [64.8c] Maximum [74.3]

-----


Liquid Freezer II 280mm:

CPU (Tctl/Tdie): Average [64.5c] Maximum [67.5c]
CPU Die: Average [64.6c] Maximum [67c]
CCD1: Average [62.1c] Maximum [70.8c]
CCD2: Average [62.4c] Maximum [70.8c]

I used the same thermal compound with both units (Kryonaut).

Cheaper and better, I'm very pleased with 360mm compared to Raijintek Tisis as well. Fans not even revving up above 1000RPM and already 5-6C lower on each core.

your package power seems quite low. what frequency are you getting on the aida stress test?

The Freezer II models have gotten solid feedback. The Freezer II 360mm should be even better results. But it's harder to find. It's out of stock at Newegg. It was in stock before. I want to see 360 results

Arctic is the same company that makes MX-4, so they understood cooling. AIO's do not last forever so you still need to keep that DH-15 around for a backup (or throw it into a secondary system).

Question, is this really an AIO? or a CLC?
If it's an AIO, that means you can change the tubing, fittings, etc, right?

The arctic website says it's maintenance free. So aren't they describing a CLC, theen?

As I said, in OCCT 4 hours testing I get 75C at most, when with lapped Raijintek Tisis (IHS is also lapped) I could spike to 81C. Can't be bothered to swap coolers to provide actual graphs and scores. Also, fans stay at around 1000RPM, while Tisis required running them at at least 80% RPM and that cooler is 2C worse than D15 at the worst review result I could find. Most of the time it's the same performance.

I doubled check to see if the undervolt was limiting the CPU performance but i don't think there is anything wrong, i guess i got a decent chip.

I had similar results going from my dear D15 to the 280 Arctic Freezer II on my 3800x.

Temps are similar or slightly lower, but it has the side adavantadges of, first achieving them with noticeably less noise (the Arctic goes to about 2º of max performance while at 50%), while actually being nearly inaudible at idle (which surprised me to no end, I thought I wouldn't keep it cause of idle noise, since the main point of my build is being silent, or efectively so, at idle). So now my PC is near enough silent at idle, and barely a bother at full load, with fans that don't go over 700 RPM, quite nice.

And second advantadge, it leaves a bit more breathing room to the GPU, that got a couple degrees lower due to not having the D15 on it's back, generally making the airflow inside the case easier to manage, and therefore cooler.

I don't quite like the idea of having a CLC on my sytem, but I have to admit at least this one is pretty effective (here's hoping it works for a long-ish time without issues).
