    Sport Driver got a reaction from Vinute in Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!   
    I might as well post it here. It's been about a month since I built this thing. It replaced my i5 4430 system.  Specs are:
    Ryzen 7 5800X
    Gigabye B550 AORUS ELITE V2
    Corsair Vengance RGB PRO 32 GB 3600 MHz
    EKWB Basic 240 AIO
    Sapphire Nitro RX 480 4GB
    Samsung 970 EVO 1TB 
    Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB
    WD Blue 500 GB HDD
    NZXT H510
     
    Generally got good prices  for components (CPU was comfortably under MSRP). GPU and SATA drives are from previous build.  Monitor is 27" Samsung, also about 8 years old now. Looking at replacing it with something ultrawide and higher refresh rate but no point until I can get my hands on new GPU, RX 6700XT or RTX 3070 preferably. Oh and headset is left over from schooling from home but it is kinda practical like that 😅
    Oh yeah  and that laptop is what I bought for university so it is about 4,5 years old Lenovo Ideapad.

    der8auer covers this in one of his videos
    variable flow rate or setting a curve is fine to, but people over complicate this as the curve adjust based on the CPU temp or water temp when it should adjust based on load not temp but that doesn't exist so a static speed is just easier to work with especially for an aio

    Crazy. I was running High TDP and high voltage in my CLC days. I cant say I ever felt warm air coming off the rad. I wasn't using stock fans, but still. I always had my rad drawing from outside and exhausting into my case. Sounds like you need to forget about silence and turn up the fans over 500rpm for awhile 😄

    The air is a fair bit warmer when the cpu is loaded. If it would only be a couple degrees those rads would suck :P. You can look it up more than enough tests done. Either way even 2c in the h510 coupled with even less airflow due to a front rad really hurts the gpu for temps.

    I recently switched to a new case and cooling
    Old case: Lian Li O11 Dyn with 360 AIO
    New case: BQ 500DX with Noctua NH-D15S
     
    I dropped both temps and noise with air-cooling. 
     
    The standard H510 has terrible airflow because of the closed front panel. 
    Because of the limited airflow in the case I believe the AIO could be slightly better than air-cooling.
     
    I would suggest air-cooling with BQ Dark Rock 4 but with a different case (with mesh front). 
    BQ 500DX
    Corsair 4000D Airflow
    Lian Li LANCOOL II Mesh
    Phanteks P400A
    Fractal Meshify 
    Cooler Master TD500 Mesh

    I feel like you drastically over estimate the temp of air after the rad... which is generally only 1-2c warmer (not much) so as long as you have adequate exhaust your gpu temps will remain largely the same.

    oh you bought the case all ready. well... it's available for a reason 🤣 anyway, these worked for me:
    1. no additional fans cpu gets 5-10c warmer but better gpu.
    or
    2. just install 1 front fan (the upper one only). if you install a fan at the lower part, it messes with the airflow for the GPU. because the air coming in from the pci slots are interfering and disrupts the airflow altogether.

    The meshify c should be the price of a h510 and is basically identical to the meshify 2. In the h510 basically every cooler kinda sucks and watercooling makes it terrible for the gpu as the only place for a 240 is in the front aka the only fresh air intake and then you get the hot air from the cpu all over the inside of everything thus heating the remainder of the components even more.
