I agree that is why I go for aircooling in my systems

How ABOUT THIS?

If you will not be gaming or light gaming, have you considered the idea of going with an AMD APU ??

predalien 02-28-2015 11:02 PM

Moderate Gaming is what I am looking at. Most of my games at medium settings.

If you can get that to fit in a Node 804 then it would be exactly what you need. Just use only one fan with it and you'll have a dead silent cooler that keeps your CPU cool.

I don't think that cooler is going to fit. Plus I want to overlock that processor. So I am seeing water cooling as an option.

You can easily max a Pentium on a Hyper 212. They only draw about 90 watts at 1.4v:



Hyper 212 is about equal to an H75, potentially slightly better.

Water cooler with noctua fans. I think wont be that bad. What are my best options for a 120mm water cooler?

You'd have a quieter build then but still the pump noise. AIOs also don't do well with low RPM fans, performance degrades quite a bit.

For a Processor I think I will go for an i5

Intel Core i5-4460

As for an Air Cooling option. How about this?

Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler

and I can replace the fan with a noctua fan

Cooler Master Hyper T2 - Compact CPU Cooler with Dual Looped Direct Contact Heatpipes

or

Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes


Or use the stock heatsink?
