Hello,

I am building a 5820k system. Right now i am searching for cooling system.

For cpu my latest candidates are corsair h115i, kraken x61, nepton 240 and masterliquid pro.

I will add akasa viper or similiar low noise fans on selected solution for better acoustic performance.

Any recommendation on this? First liquid system and the replacement fans Thanks

The H115i and the X61 would be good choices. The X61 would be quieter.

Thank you very much for your reply.

I tought i will be using h115i but someone recommended me x61.

I read several liquid leakage reports about several brands. Thats why i am searching for recommended solution

Both H115i and X61 are made by asetek so both are similar. H115i will perform better but also louder by around 10db. When in quiet mode (H115I), the X61 will perform better.

Well great reply nearly all of my candidates are on that list :)

In that case i have to select regarding user comments.

Btw i will be adding akasa viper or something like that. In this case noise level should be same. Right ?

You will need 140mm fans so it would be the akasa AK-FN063 . It has decent static pressure at 26dba. I don't have any experience with those fans.. The fans that come with the X61 are fine and if you go with corsair fans just run them at reduced speed. I don't think you need to spend more money.
