Description

This is a 1k ish gaming pc. I recommend a cooler master tx3 though, as under load the cpu is quite loud game performance is good and 3dmark scores too, it functions best with the oc genie, though this makes alot of heat. The gpu is good and this psu leaves enough room to upgrade

If you overclock (oc genie) you need urgent a water cpu cooler!

It is loud because you are using a stock fan! Grab a Hyper 212 Evo and some NT-H1 thermal paste and fix the heat and the noise!

Thanks! Im currently looking into one of those or a corsair liquid cooler like an h60

H60 isn't bad, but as it has a single 120mm fan that does an incredibly low 54CFM at 31dB, you would probably want to upgrade the fan to a Enermax UCTS12A that does 154CFM (or about 3 times the airflow of the stock H60 fan!) at 38dB for best cooling performance.

Static pressure is measured in mm H²O if you are not aware, and that unit directly correlates with CFM, due to it being used in "water cooling". Please compare the static pressure (mm H²O) of the UCTS12A to the corsair SP120, EK Vardar, or Noiseblocker eLoop that the two of you recommended.

The UTCS12A is capable of generating 11.125 mm H²O static pressure at the full 3500 RPM generating 154CFM at 38dB.

The Delta is capable of generating 27.48 mm H²O at 240CFM at 5200 RPM at 62dB (loud).

The Corsair SP120 is capable of generating 3.1 mm H²O at 62.74CFM at 2350 RPM at 35dB.

The EK Vardar fans are capable of generating 2.24 mm H²O at 63CFM at 1850RPM at 29.5 dB.

The most powerful 120mm Noiseblocker eLoop generates 2.8 mm H²O.

Thank you for your concern in this subject. I should have used mm H²O as the unit as well as static pressure, but the direct correlation of CFM and static pressure makes them very similar and of little difference. Hopefully this helps to enlighten certain individuals who base their answer on uneducated guesses/inferences while deferring from professional methodology of measurement and are affected by advertising as well as market influence.

Oh, my bad! I've been mistakenly looking at the T.B. Silence (0.483 - 1.676 mm-H2O). I apologize! The UCTS12A does in fact seem to be a pretty good fan for watercooling. Still: 38db? You don't want to go there in a consumer build. Might be nice to have the option, but almost 6.7 @ 30db? That is impressive! I take a bow and withdraw myself...
