  1. Mugen 5 Rev. B is a good option: https://www.skroutz.gr/s/12479861/Scythe-Mugen-5-Rev-b.html
  2. Fans mounted above the chassis frame would be less effective since air would need to take several turns to exhaust out of the case ventilation holes. Here's an example: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/CYGG3C What AIO are you using? Most should be able to fully fit within the chassis frame.
  3. Under 80-90c at load is fine. The Hyper 212 Evo is plenty for cooling at stock speeds.
  4. Phanteks P300A, P350X, or Corsair 4000D Airflow?
  5. Lower rpm can allow for lower power consumption, lower temps, less noise, and less wear. Larger drives perform well enough due to higher areal density so the extra bit of performance from higher rpm is arguably less valuable than the advantages listed above.
  6. Turbo boost is enabled by default and will raise the clock speed from base when possible. Limiting factors include temperature and power limits. Shown in the TechPowerUp article, the 10900 doesn't turbo as much and is pretty easy to cool at the stock 65 tdp. A good 120mm AIO would be adequate for raised power limits as opposed to no power limits. The H60 2018 is cheaper if you want to save some money: https://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-876452867-corsair-hydro-series-h60-aio-refrigerador-de-cpu-liquido-_JM A more powerful 280mm AIO like the Kraken Z63 may allow for slightly mor
  7. The Matrexx 55 isn't very small and has plenty of clearance (168mm) for a large cpu cooler. What good things have you heard about? What kind of features are you looking for in the cooler? Where are you shopping / located?
  8. Nah, Tier 1 will turn into Tier 1 and Tier 2 and everything else will 'move down'. Hopefully, that isn't too confusing for anyone who may have gotten used to the old labels. Added to the list. Performance seems similar to the Silent Loops. https://lanoc.org/review/cooling/8155-be-quiet-pure-loop-240mm?start=4 https://www.eteknix.com/be-quiet-pure-loop-240mm-aio-liquid-cooler-review/6/ https://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/tests/wasserkuehlung/be_quiet_pure_loop/s03.php https://www.cowcotland.com/articles/3048-4/test-watercooling-aio-be-quiet-pure-loop-du-tres-joli-et-tr
  9. It should be fine as long as the front panel isn't too close to the front of the fans.
  10. Yes, they've been added to the list and are excellent performers. I'd like to separate the coolers currently in Tier 1 but need more time and data.
  11. Have you used it? If not, I'd recommend giving it a try and deciding on what you'd like to improve on from there.
  12. Expanding foam should be enough to keep the graphics card in place but there's a chance the foam may have not expanded properly in the right places. Did you mean this video?
  13. When limited to the stock tdp, the 10900 is easier to cool than the 4790k. Depending on how much power draw you allow, the 10900 can easily be more difficult to cool. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/intel-core-i9-10900/19.html If you're sticking closer to stock settings, you could get away with a cheaper cooler like a Gammaxx 400S: https://compragamer.com/producto/cooler_cpu_deepcool_gammaxx_400s_10650?redir=1&nro_max=50 Mugen 5 Rev. B: https://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-871597285-mugen-5rev-b-refrigerador-para-cpu-con-amd-am4de-apoyo-_JM#position=43&type
  14. The stock case fans should be fine already. If you want to get new case fans, a pair of 140mm's like NF-P14S for front intake would probably be better. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/8r9KHx/noctua-case-fan-nfp14sredux1500pwm You can use the stock case fans for top and rear exhaust.
  15. All of the options mentioned also perform better than the Wraith Prism and would help lower temps. If you're also concerned with lowering temps, the Fuma 2 and Ninja 5 are both hard to go wrong with. The 2700x isn't very hard to cool. Here are some examples with the Ninja 5: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/KH9G3C https://thinkcomputers.org/scythe-ninja-5-cpu-cooler-review/4/
