Fractal Era ITX air cooling solutions

 Share

Current build is:

Fractal Era ITX case (only ITX case I know which supports 2x120mm rads is the reason I picked it up)

120mm AIO for cpu

Intel i9-9900k cpu (stock clock, max 70C)

Nvidia GTX 1070 TI hybrid (120mm rad) gpu (max 65C)

SFX PSU

Noctua & Bequiet rad fans. Mainly hear AIOs pumps, not fans

 

Build is temps first, noise 2nd and then all others

Current temps and noise are great due to low temps inside case, radiators extracting all heat superb

Problem?
I'd like to upgrade my GPU to something RTX 3000 hybrid, but all of them are coming with 240mm rads now instead of 120mm (like right now). So looking into Air cooled CPU coolers so top would accommodate new GPU rad
Currently looking into NH-D9L.  Does anyone know how bad my temps would be? Or wouldn't it affect performance at all? CPU is running stock

Also considering air cooled GPU but afraid it will heat up the case too much which in return will increase CPU temps and fans won't be nearly silent

probably custom water loop would be my guess. i think it will still thermal throttle thow... 240m for cpu and a 30xx gpu...

The Era ITX is notoriously awful for thermals. I wouldn't count on any air cooler being able to keep a 9900K happy in there.

Sincerely,
