Should I get this?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm planning to get the NZXT G12 and the corsair h55 aio for 75 usd. Is it worth it? (really it's 95 usd, but that's counting swedish buyers tax)

 

Edit: reason for this is that my gpu is running quite hot and is very loud. I also have some vardar fans laying around for the aio if the corsair one is loud.

the issue with the G12 is that it only *really* cools the core, out the box the only cooling it provides for VRAM and VRM is the fan blowing some air vaguely over the right place on the card.

 

depending on your card it may improve, or it may make thermals A LOT worse.

120mm aio? I'd rather get a big heatsink, unless your case cant hold big cards

For a lot of people the temperatures of the vrm and memory actually got BETTER, even without the heatsink.

I can also ad some low profile heatsinks

Which card?

 

You could get an Arctic or Raijintek cooler, both are (typ.) cheaper and better.


I tend to reply with memes because I lack social skills and don't know how to express myself correctly.

that doesnt mean the G12 is good, just means cards with the cooler swap dont cool their VRM and VRAM well enough

Fewer fans or lower noise? they are the opposite of each other

Sorry for not answering. I now use the vardar fans as casefans, therefor I would have to buy new fans for the gpu heatsink, so this solution would turning out more expensive, at least where i live.
