  1. P95 is a synthetic load and you shouldn't be worrying unless you're getting the same temps during regular use. If your cooler is still under warranty, I'd suggest just getting a replacement from Corsair. The h80i is actually a pretty dense rad (most AIO's are) and performs similarly to the Kuhler 920. The Kotetsu wouldn't have any compatibility issues if you do go with it.
  2. The Kotetsu a tier or two beyond the 212 Evo and performs similarly to coolers like the NH-U12S and close to the H80i. The 2600k oc is just an example and not a rating. Temps are based on voltage and not the oc. Don't read too much into it. Scythe has been around for a while and is usually pretty well priced in Japan.
  3. Oh, you're looking at non-led Dual-X's? They're good for led fans but there are usually many better options if you just want black fans. That being said, DynaQuest doesn't have a great fan selection. The Frostflow works but sticking with 140mm's where possible like in the rear with a Kraken x40 would probably be quieter: https://dynaquestpc.com/product/nzxt-kraken-x40-liquid-cpu-cooler/
  4. Kotetsu: https://www.amazon.co.jp/サイズ-HASWELL対応-虎徹-12cmサイドフロー-SCKTT-1000/dp/B00G1YXN6M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484748040&sr=8-1&keywords=kotetsu
  5. Dual-X's are good but there are better options available if you're not dead set on them for the looks. An NH-U14S or NH-D15 would be excellent. https://dynaquestpc.com/product/noctua-nh-u14s-cpu-cooler/ https://dynaquestpc.com/product/noctua-nh-d15-cpu-cooler/ 280mm AIO's would perform a bit better but wouldn't be as quiet. The 212x would also be a better bang for your buck if you just want a respectable oc: https://dynaquestpc.com/product/cooler-master-hyper-212x-cpu-cooler/
  6. Can you link us to where you're shopping?
  7. 80-85c at load is perfectly fine. Is your h80i still under warranty? Moved to Air Cooling.
  8. Can you link us to where you're shopping?
  9. Fera 3: http://www.pcgarage.ro/coolere/SilentiumPC/fera-3/ If you can stretch a bit more, the Kotetsu would be even quieter: http://www.pcgarage.ro/coolere/scythe/kotetsu/
  10. Probably not unless you don't game much and spend most of your time rendering. That being said, you should probably get a 1080 instead of two 1070's if that's what you were thinking.
  11. It helps to watch things on eBay. The figure seems to cost $100+ retail.
  12. So like... you're doing it right?
  13. Photoshop works well if you know how to edit. Example of concept before and build after:

  15. Eh, I'd call it a substantial difference. Cinebench is probably the best representation for real-world 3d rendering performance.
