zyxwvu4321 Ah, didn't catch that. Thank ya!

doyll 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.

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.

zyxwvu4321 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.

Owterspace 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.

Ah, good deal!

I had some time to run a couple more Handbrake tests today. For all of these, the room temp was ~24.5c and the sensor about 3-4cm in front of the cooler was ~25.5c.

After reseating the cooler and tightening it down a little more, the max temp was 67.1c. I then tried unplugging that top fan and running the same test. Temperature sensor didn't show any changes, but CPU temp maxed out at 69c this time.

Will try more in the future!

Do you have a way to monitor air temp into cooler during testing? If you run something like Handbrake at 100% it puts CPU at 100% load as soon as it starts encoding and peak temps will be in about 5 minutes. It may not be a problem, but your top intake may be disrupting the cooler fan's ability to draw air in. This is becuase top fan is forcing air at right angles to what cooler fan needs. Like I said, it may not be a problem.



Do temps go down if you open case front door?
I did run out and buy one of those indoor/outdoor thermometers to hang inside. While running Handbrake, the sensor was dangling ~2-2.5cm in front of cooler fan. During the entire run, the temp of the sensor stayed ~1C higher than ambient. It rose a bit during the run until my AC kicked on, but always the same amount above ambient. My Handbrake run did reach peak ~3 minutes after it started, topping out at 68.1C, then back down to the normal idle temp of 30C quickly afterwards. Haven't had time to do any other testing like removing front, removing top fan, etc.

Yeah, the base of the cooler is larger than the top of a Ryzen chip, so when I get it placed for good, I may try to slide it a bit higher towards the top of the case to get a little more space between the GPU.
