    Best cpu cooler

    There's more than one Dragonfly model and they should all be significantly better than a mainstream Intel stock cooler. Which Dragonfly do you have? The Dragonfly 4 performs similarly to the 212 Evo which should be plenty for a stock 7700k. What motherboard are you using? Are you using default motherboard settings?

    Cpu upgrade question

    It depends what kind of price you're looking at. What motherboard do you have? Moved to CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory.

    black fans

    What case are you using? What do you mean by good looking? Most black fans look pretty similar imo. Where are you shopping / located?

    Cooling my Q8400

    It has 2 heatpipes so it's closer to a Hyper T2. Depending on the quality of the mounting hardware, it could end up performing worse but I'm curious as to how it performs. @ActuallyMediocreOC If you already bought the cooler, let us know how it performs afterwards. Otherwise, it might be a safer bet to find a cheap Arctic Freezer or Cooler Master cooler instead. There's a Freezer LP for $10 listed: https://www.ebay.com/itm/ARCTIC-Freezer-11-LP-100-Watts-Intel-CPU-Cooler-for-Slim-PC-Cases/323644788717?hash=item4b5abb8fed:g:PxIAAOSw9m5cOI6h:rk:5:pf:0&LH_BIN=1 It seems like the accessories are complete but it might be a good idea to ask the seller for confirmation.

    Looking for a cpu cooler for an 8700k in a inwin 301

    Can you measure the clearance available between the rad and the graphics card? You might be able to fit a slim 15mm fan instead like the NF-A12x15. I'm not entirely sure but you might be able to mount fans on the outside of the front panel fan bracket as well.

    8700k idle temps 20 degrees higher over night

    Are your sure the system is at idle and there aren't any processes or Windows updates running in the background?

    Can Linus make a review of Redmi Note7?

    This is better off posted in the thread pinned at the top of General Discussion for video suggestions:

    Reverse Design Fans?

    Wow, I never noticed until now. Deepcool has their MF120 fans: http://www.gamerstorm.com/product/CASEFAN/2018-02/1289_7712.shtml I don't think you'll be able to find standalone fans with both a normal and reversed version though.

    Reverse Design Fans?

    I'm not sure what you mean. The cooler uses standard case fans.

    Searching for a pc case

    It's a good option. The Meshify C is also a good alternative: https://www.amazon.de/Fractal-Design-Meshify-Solid-Panel/dp/B079FPKPN3/ref=sr_1_13?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1547517834&sr=1-13&keywords=meshify%2Bc&th=1

    Noctua D15 vs ?

    They don't seem to be particularly cheaper anywhere so Newegg or Amazon are good. If it's cheaper or more convenient locally, go for that.

    Noctua D15 vs ?

    Where are you located?
  14. The cpu doesn't idle in the bios. The bios is a single threaded program and pings a single core to 100% usage which is why temps are higher than idle in Windows.

    How big of a hole...

    I don't see any great reviews or benchmarks on the Rosewill fan but my first impression of it is that it wouldn't be quiet nor optimal for a rad due to the high number of thin blades. The NF-A12x15 however has been shown to perform very well on rads and is also very quiet. https://www.overclockers.com/noctua-nf-a12x15-fan-review/
