Cool off

Which would provide better cooling, the cryorig C7 or an aio that would cost in the neighborhood of 20-25 dollars more in the silverstone sg13b case?

Buying a cheap AIO is like giving a person on suicide watch rope

about the same really. AIOs are good for quiet operation and tight cases. Case and point: Many large air coolers obstruct the ram slot nearest the socket. AIOs eliminate that by reducing the footprint over the socket.

AIO would perform better probably

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

What AIO exactly are you planning? I'd go with it unless it's a piece of shit that will leak a month after you start using it.

To add to knightslugger, an AIO does not have much airflow over the VRMs and RAM slots, so if overclocking is something you're gonna do, you might have to think about that. Really any 120mm or 240mm AIO will cool about the same as a good air cooler. Even a 280mm will be only marginally better.

Those things are the same thing.

The C7 is right around 50 CAD. This is a good cooler. There's also the H50:

Note the word "more" He's not saying he wants one at that price, but rather asking if he spends just a bit more what he'll get for his money.

Oh damn, missed that.

 

Still wouldnt buy an AIO personally, but they will allow you to get better cooling in small cases as long as you can cool the MB area around the socket.

 

There are 240mm coolers in that price range, though they are from the more questionable brands.  You will also need to check the mounting locations in the case for clearance and hose routing.  Looks like it could be pretty tight for FEP tubes.

As somebody who is currently running a SG13B, I'd recommend the C7.

140mm radiators often interfere with longer GPUs. There was an old LTT video talking about it (Specifically with Silverstone's TD03-slim. which I can't recommend).

Josh from NFC Systems is doing a 20ish SFF cooler roundup within the next month or two. He'll have good data for low profile coolers.

 

I'm currently running a Noctua L9x65 in my system. Although it's cramped (Technically beyond the maximum size that'll fit), it'll fit with a SFX PSU.

I'll add pictures in a minute and measure the "real" maximum CPU cooler height (if you orient the PSU correctly)

 

Edit: Here's a picture of my current cooler in the SG13B (The Noctua L9x65). Please ignore the mess of cables - I shoved 'em to the side for this picture.

I strongly recommend using the PSU to pull out of the case instead of using it as a separate system (pulls air in from the top, out the back). It improves cooling by a couple of degrees in configs similar to mine.

I replaced the A9x14 fan (92mm x 14mm) with a 120mm x 25mm fan, bringing the total possible height up to 90mm. This would be best with a cooler with horizontal airflow (such as a dynatron), but I'm pulling air up through the cooler, into the PSU's fan, then out of the case.
