Water Cooling Performance for Half the Price

 

A year ago the prototype of the IceGiant ProSiphon impressed us with it's cooling performance, but does the much smaller retail unit keep up?

I, on the other hand, am not impressed with the failure at using apostrophes correctly.

Erm, it's not really what you'd call affordable...

... but I'm no expert

Custom water cooling.  Its in a whole other league than AIOs.

OK .. .after actually finishing a video I assume it's a great Threadripper cooler and not really meant for smaller systems.

My critique here is that , despite obviously being OK using $400+ in custom loop parts .. u restricted urself to a single 240mm rad.

The whole point of a Custom loop is that ur not restricted, a 240mm rad is the minimum one should be using for a TR cpu, if the IceGiant is supposed to be some balls to the wall air cooler option for TR then do the same for custom loops.

Your comparing a $170 'air cooler' (expensive) vs the minimum spec of a custom loop when u should be comparing it to something similar in the custom loop scene Like at least a 60mm x 360mm rad.

I really don't know why everyone only cares about performance and don't look to efficiency...

Great, same performance of water cooling at half the price, but you can use in a Mini ITX? This cooler has the same size as a NUC 9 Pro to have performance of watercooling, is inefficient.

Even me which likes sleeper computers, my PSU is in front of the CPU...you should said it's half of the price for people who has an huge case with lots of space.

LTT videos are getting less and less in depth and critical in their analysis, and more and more drooling fanboy as of late.

If you want a solid look at new parts and things like efficiency, you'll have to go elsewhere...

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

I think Linus briefly mentioned that Pro Siphon was optimized for CPUs with multi-die design like the Threadripper or AM4.

 

As someone who just got his hands on a 5950X cooled with NH-D15, would Pro Siphon make a considerable difference in temps?

 

I would’ve liked to see more in-depth review on how ProSiphon would’ve performed on the Ryzen 5000 series CPUs.

I too am wondering about AM4 performance. It's not like they didn't have an AM4 system to test it on or anything...

 

Hopefully they sent a review unit to GamersNexus so we can get a proper review :)

I wish Noctua would still try and make a large version of the NH-D15. For example, make it taller, give it a more asymmetric design to better utilize the available space for both the width and height of common mid sized ATX cases.
