    Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

    Ended up going for a Kraken X62.

    Gotta buy an AIO, what's it gonna be?

    I do think the H110i GT is the current H110i and the H110i GTX is the current H115i, although I could be wrong. Anyway, just read the NZXT warranty and even though it's 6 years (1 year more than Corsair's) they don't take responsability in case some component gets wetter than it should... Uh scratch that, as it seems NZXT has the same exact policy as Corsair. Anyway, if the Corsair is indeed the best cooler I guess I'll go with it.

    Gotta buy an AIO, what's it gonna be?

    Yeah, I did read something about the H115i having slightly better performance just yesterday. I do know Corsair's warranty is pretty good and they pay if anything leaks, but does NZXT do the same? I'm wondering if anyone had the experience. If anything, that'll be the decisive factor after performance. And yeah, I'll eventually replace the stock fans with some noctuas or some deltas. Yeah, I've seen some reviews and it looks like it performs really good in its class but it's only a 240mm radiator and I think it is too thick to get in my case. Thanks for the suggestion though. Damn, you must be getting a quite decent OC in that.

    Honestly I don't give a fugg about rgb crap. Just want a reliable and great performing aio. The X62 seems better than the H115i on paper so that's why.

    >AK predator 240 That sounds really good but can't find it anywwhere. Not even in the EKWB store. End of life, it seems. As for your setup, do you have it as intake? I already thought about it and came to your exact conclusion: my card is going to boil in there. But having it as outtake and the upper and back (unfiltered) fans as intake seems like a really bad idea for the card too. >Theoretically you could stick with your currenbt cooler and delid and relid with liquid metal if you are willing to do that with a proper tool Fuuuuck no. I'm not going to risk the warranty on my cpu. Thanks for the suggestions man. Silence is secondary, even tertiary. But I'll keep it in mind Thanks True that. I was going to keep my current cooler anyway. Looks pretty cool (literally), but that whole installation guide makes my pee pee shrivel in fear a bit. Plus I don't think my case has brackets to install the pump, unfortunately.

    The Dark Rock Pro 3/Cryorig R1 perform only a bit better than my current cooler. Plus neither can fit in my case so yeah... But thanks anyway. I think Corsair stopped using those GT/GTX nomenclatures. So, if I'm not mistaken, the H115i is the best cooler they have.

    Yeah, I'm more inclined to the NZXT too.
  8. Sup guys So, as the title says I really am in need of a AIO because it seems my air cooler isn't cutting it at stock, even. Making a custom loop is out of the question. I'm going for a 280mm. Possibly a Kraken X62 or a Corsair H115i. They seem to perform pretty much on par but I'd like to know what you guys think. I'm open to suggestions, money is no object. I'm looking for performance, but a good warranty would also be great and the less spaghetti coming from the socket, the better

    CS:GO Horrible FPS with good specs

    Any Source based game is very cpu intensive, so it's quite normal you're experiencing that. Eh, just read the drop was out of the blue. Are you using HRTF?

    Maybe you got a dud... That's the only explanation.

    Yeah, I think that's the only way.

    Bang for the buck LGA1150 CPU

    If you're going to upgrade, get a 4790k. Those 8 threads are handy.

    Disconnect the battery, plug in the magsafe connector and then reconnect the battery.
