  1. If it's a single thin layer, the performance difference should be minimal.
  2. Especially at load. Load temps are what matter as they should represent about as high as temps can go and temps should otherwise be lower which is fine.
  3. What case and ram are you using? Where are you shopping / located? Air coolers can use an offset design to completely clear the ram slots or have cutouts and a raised fan to hang over the ram. Make sure to quote a post or tag a member when replying or else they won't get a notification that you replied to them.
  4. Fan start seems normal. Is 0dB mode switched on in GPU Tweak II?
  5. It depends on the heatsink. The thinner fan can sometimes outperform the thicker one. The thicker one is quieter though. SFF.network has some good examples: https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/sffn-cpu-cooler-shoot-out.12047/
  6. More surface area improves cooling. It's why heatsinks and rads work. A dense heat source like Intel's monolithic die is harder to cool and a convex heatsink base that flattens onto that die can provide better contact (surface area) for cooling. I'm guessing the ProSiphon Elite doesn't rely on that.
  7. The similar Gammaxx 400 may be cheaper: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/w3c48d/deepcool-gammaxx-400-blue-7434-cfm-cpu-cooler-deepcool-gammaxx-400-blue
  8. So the front is currently exhaust and the rest are intake? Are you able to mount the gpu rad at the rear instead? Front intake and rear exhaust might work better.
  9. Where's the gpu rad mounted? 85 is safe but a bit high.
  10. 71c is pretty good for load. A 2080 Ti Hybrid should also be cooled pretty well already. What are gpu load temps? If your temps are fine already, better fans probably won't make a big difference in cooling. The case airflow may be a bigger limiting factor from the looks of it.
  11. That's fine. What are load temps? What cpu cooler are you using?
  12. I don't remember seeing a Hyper 212 RGB BE that comes with 2 fans. It may just be a picture to demonstrate support for 2 fans. What cpu, case, and ram are you using? Where are you shopping / located? Budget?
  13. What case are you using? Where are you shopping / located? Budget?
  14. Yes, here are some examples: https://pcpartpicker.com/builds/by_part/3Pn8TW#h=216304
  15. System specs and temps? What are you aiming to improve with a new cooler and fans? Where are you shopping / located? Budget? Moved to Cooling.
  16. LGA 1200 and 115x sockets use the same cooler mounts. The only reason that comes to mind for a 115x water block not fitting on 1200 would be if it was designed for a specific motherboard or the motherboard being used is not conforming to the socket keep-out-zone which is a specification followed to ensure cooler clearance.
  17. If the prices don't get any better and Noctua doesn't provide the mounting hardware, you're probably better off getting another 120mm tower heatsink for the price and reusing the included NF-P12's.
  18. Sorry for the late reply -- this was buried under a few tabs. The Galahad AIO 240 seems to be a similar but cheaper option: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pYZzK8/lian-li-galahad-aio-240-rgb-6917-cfm-liquid-cpu-cooler-galahad-aio-240-rgb-white
  19. Sorry for the late reply -- this was buried under a few tabs. Sickleflow 120 ARGB's seem decent: https://www.tokopedia.com/nanokomputer/cooler-master-sickleflow-120-argb?refined=true&whid=0
  20. The listings I see for the hardware are fairly overpriced. Do you not have any of the mounting hardware? The specs in your description mention the i5-3570k which uses the same mounting hardware as the i5-10600k.
  21. Lower temps may allow for better boosting but the performance improvement is small. The most practical benefit would be lower noise if the current cooler is too noisy.
  22. Why replace your cooler? What are you aiming to improve?
  23. Counter clockwise to unlock and clockwise to lock. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005852/processors.html
