Hokies83 10c temp drop vs h100i platinum,

Hokies83 Just waiting on my QDC to get here.
Looks clean to me 🙂

3 360’rads so I can run all fans at minimum speed, that’s the only reason.

Some concern on this too.



I want to build a custom loop but unsure if I should keep anything from my DriveX3, rather than just buy a new pump/res+360 rad to go along with it. Or maybe I should just swap the waterblock for an Optimus AM4 one.

Would you be able to recommend something that’s good for radiators?

Thank you

I swapped the swiftech fan for Gentle Typhoon 2150s and drop temp around 6-8c on full load.



X99 5820K 4.5G, ~220-240w.


I found out those Helix stuff are just really cheap chinese fans that everyone is rebranding and selling.

Mind you, I do agree with you that there should be actual airflow for the case rather than everything just blowing air in. And your simple physics are simply correct.
So you suggest running exhausts 2x or 3x fans at 4x or 8x higher noise levels than 6x intake fans on radiator? Wouldn't it make more sense to have one 360mm rad as intake and one as exhaust?

But seriously, isn't ntuason using a Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic case with four 3x 120mm vent sets, one in bottom and two on right side near front and one in top, plus 2x 80mm vents in back over motherboard I/O. He should be fine with just the 6x good intake/radiator fans as intake, although I would consider using them as exhaust and keep case air temp lower so all components that are not under waterblocks have optimal cooling.

A case can only flow as much air in as it can flow out .. whichever is smaller (intake vs exhaust area) limits the maximum case airflow. There can't be more air going into the case than is coming out of it .. simple physics.

I don't really care for RGB since its going to be in a ''push'' configuration on the H360X3 and wont see it. I really want those Noctua NF-A12X25 but at $40 for one in Canada LOL! I'll have to settle for the P12.
I have my H360X3 on top pushing air into the case and the other 360 rad pushing air in also, I'll probably push/pull the other rad to compensate for the poor performance of the helix 120 iris.

Thanks for the assistance. +Rep

I kept the stocks on the h360 and using Corsair hd120s on one 360 and LL120s on another,
I’ll audibly adjust them till I can’t hear them, then leave them there lol

If you don't need RGB, the Noctua NF-A12X25 is the vest of the best, be quiet Silent Wings 3 being another top choice. If you are looking for something a little more budget friendly (I think....I know pricing in Canada is really wonky), there is the Phanteks F120MP or Arctic P12. And....keep in mind that you can go with any of these fans with no RGB and add Phanteks Halo frames for the best of all worlds.
