Phanteks PH-TC12DX or Cryorig H5 Universal?

Topic in the title.

Trying to find out which would work out better. My goal is to keep the system as silent as possible, but still have a white cooler that performs well.

Thanks!

between these two the TC12DX wins out. it costs around $5 more, but it performs better. the noise level is higher, but not by much. the TC12DX is smaller and more compact being a 120mm tower vs a 140mm, the H5 is taller and longer so it comes closer to the top pci-express slot and whatever expansion card may be in it. the TC12DX performs better as a cooler too.

After a little more reading, I think I'll be going with the TC12DX. :)

I may replace the fans if it's too audible, but from what I've been reading, it's barely noticeable. Thanks for recommendation!
