    1982 Original got a reaction from FoodOcean in 120mm AIO vs Low-Profile Air Cooler (5900x OC)   
    Are you familiar with the YouTube channel Machines & More?  He has great SFF content, the vast majority is focused on cooling.

    1982 Original reacted to LazyTurtle1990 in NZXT Aer 120mm vs Noctua NF-A12x25   
    I have bought 3 NF-A12x25 fans and use them as my TOP-Exhaust fans over the radiator, in 1450RPM, and it seems to work fine, and I really don't hear them, as long as I don't really listen after it, and it's totally quiet in the room. I thinking about buying a Artic 5.pack and change my 3 front intake fans (H710 stock case fans), and maybe the rear case fan. It's to pricy now to change the 4 other fans with Noctua NF-A 12x25. 
     
    Temp is about 83C max on the CPU Package after 30.min with Aida 64 Extreme System Stability Test. CPU reporting max temp around 72C, so I don't think that is to bad. I also did the test with all the fans on max rpm, and it only was 1-2C difference. 
     
    The setup now is: 3.intake fans is going on 1250.rpm (1350 is max), exhaust top is going on 1450.rpm (2050 is max), and the exhaust in the rear is going on 850.rpm (1000.rpm is max). I think RPM is better than fan curve, but I don't really know. I using ASUS AI Suite 3 with Fan Xpert 4 to controlling the fans. Any tip is welcome. 
     
    In idle the cpu package is around 40-44C. But sometimes it jumps to 50, in a second or two before it goes down. 
     
    CPU is ryzen 3700x and cooler is NZXT X73. 
    I can find some Be Quiet fans, but they are out of stock everywhere.

    hmm, I have actually did some comparison, most reviewers gives you graphs and will only test on physical noise. anyway it's up to you to believe these test I've done. 
    I don't believe in graphs. I only believe in sight. sense and hearing.

    1982 Original reacted to LogicalDrm in Controlling fan speed through a fan splitter?   
    Same applies to any software controller software though. The point is that mobo can only read one rpm per header, and apply one control scheme per header. So with that splitter, FAN1 is the master and rest will follow. Though I don't quite understand why they bothered to have all rpm pins there... Usually splitters don't have RPM pins on all headers, just one for monitoring.

    1982 Original got a reaction from LogicalDrm in Controlling fan speed through a fan splitter?   
    If you connected that splitter to a 4 pin motherboard header and all the attached fans were also 4 pin, then you should be able to control the fans through the bios. You cannot control the fans individually, it will be one fan curve that applies to all connected fans. It would probably work best if all of the fans were matching.

    We recommend P12 because it's decent and cheap, not that you should replace every fan with them.

    1982 Original reacted to Kleo Yan in 280 or 360mm be quiet or arctic   
    I totally agree with 1982 Original, I have both the Arctic Freezer II 280 and the bequiet 280, both are great AIOs plus these two pumps are superb. 
    its a tough choice to make as you can refill the be quiet. but even if you can refill, there might be some other factors as time goes by.. AIO will give way and I believe even if you can refill the bequiet, the lifespan of an CLC AIO will still be around 4 to 5 years.

    I have the Be Quiet Pure loop, 120mm, 240mm, 280mm.  I haven't used the 360mm though.  I also like that Be Quiet designed the unit to be topped off and included fluid.  That is big feature in my mind.  Doing some research on the Pure Loop, seems like they put quite a bit of effort into their quality control.  I also like the Be Quiet fans better than Arctic, they are the Pure Wings fans, which are the rifle bearing version, but they are very good.  The only downside to the Be Quiet Pure loop is that there aren't a ton of independent reviews compared to the Arctic Freezer.  I find the Pure Loop to be really good, it's among the best I've personally used, but I'm just one guy on a forum.

    1982 Original reacted to WoodenMarker in 3 Big Boy Air Coolers, which one is the best?   
    The Assassin III performs the best followed by the NH-D15 and then the DRP4.
    If you're aiming for low noise, the list is reversed. 
    What are you cooling?

    Not what she asked.  Definition of “best” is also vague.  There is high performance and there is durability.  One does not always imply the other.  The refill port assumes durability. Might not be actual though.

    Well, I love the P12 and P14 fans, but the Noctua fans are better. They also have different bearings for example. Price/Performance-wise the Arctic are unbeatable though.

    1982 Original got a reaction from Bombastinator in Noctua NH-D15 Vibrating on max speed   
    It's hard to tell if the temps are "good" without knowing how many watts your pulling on the CPU and what your room temps are like.  Someone in a climate controlled 70F room would likely see different CPU temps than someone sitting in an 80F room because they live in a tropical climate.  The vibration doesn't seem normal though.

    PWM PST CO version. Yep, saw the 15mm as well, interesting for small builds.

    I agree that the Silent Wings 3 (regular and High Speed both 19€+) are objectively a bit better than the P12 and P14, the Pure Wings though have a sleeve bearing. That's enough to disqualify them in my book. NF-A12x25 PWM 12V is ~28€+, NF-F12 PWM is ~18€+.
     
    But we're getting OT here imho. Let's agree to disagree.

    They can be.  Pressure optimized just means they work well in places that have restricted airflow, like a radiator or even the front of a case that has dust filters.  Even in an unrestricted space, a pressure optimized fan could still perform better than an airflow fan.  I don't like to speak too much on products I haven't tested and I haven't used Arctic "F" fans, but I have tons of Arctic "P" fans.  Unless someone else comments on the tone or quality of the sound made by the "F" fans, I would venture to say the "P" are better in most scenarios.

    Ohh no, my main fans are Panaflo's. What I mean was Thermalright has some regular fans now, and with RGB, mid and high performance. Not a bad spread. I will probably buy a couple of different models, I like their TL-D14X and the little guy to go with it.

    1982 Original got a reaction from freeagent in Improving cooling for Amd Ryzen 9 3900X 12-core cpu   
    I agree with @freeagent That cooler is just a bit small for the CPU. If it was a 120mm Noctua spinning at 1000rpm, you would find it more pleasant to listen to than the 92mm fan. 
     
    There are lots of great options. I would recommend a larger Noctua or Be Quiet cooler. They have excellent fans that you would find very pleasant. I would probably go with a Be Quiet unit with Silent Wings 3 fan, assuming you are using Be Quiet fans in that Be Quiet case already. My OCD likes matching products. 
     
    You have a nice looking build there and it’s only going to get better with a better cooler.
