Does high ambient temperature affect my air cooler performance

I have a build with i7 9700k with Deepcool as500 plus, idle temps around 39C and max load temps around 75-78C and cpu is at stock setting not overclocked. Ambient temperature is at 21C.

I am planing to the rig to an off grid location where the ambient temps may hover at 35 to 40C. So I wanted to know will it affect my cpu temps at max load as I hate hitting 80C+ cpu temps 😣..... Or is it wise to upgrade to an aio like 

Deepcool LS720 ? 

Case:Asus Tuf gt501

Fan setup: intake front ->3x120mm(1500rpm) 

exhaust top->3x120mm(1200rpm) 

exhaust top->1x140mm(1200rpm) 

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes, think ambient temperature as the minimum temperature and add temperature delta of your coolers cooling capability to that. Meaning, 5c increase in ambient will result in 5c increase in your CPU temperatures.

Just to be clear, high ambient temps will impact water cooling and air cooling. There is no magic going on. You can't be cooler than the air you are using to cool your device. Doesn't matter if you are cooling with air or water.

Will aio like LS720 perform better than the current As500plus..?

Make sure to use the quote button so we can see your responses

 

Keep in mind that surface area makes the most difference with a CPU cooler. The LS720 is very large compared to the AS500, so it would have better cooling. That's assuming fan speeds aren't super high on one and super low on the other.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Obviously yes, you will gain 5 to 10C, but if your ambient goes up by +15C it'll end up warmer eventually..

Some of this is simply math. If you hit 70c under load with ambient at 21c.... you'll hit 90c with 40c ambient.  A cooler can only remove so much heat, so expect a linear-ish progression.

 

If you're going to have this thing in such a hot place, get the best delta you can.  May want to look at a better air flowing case too.

Certainly a 360 AIO is going to have better cooling performance. But there are a few things you can do to improve the existing cooler. Use two fans on the tower instead of one. Use high performance thermal compound. 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Yes, the LS720 will out perform the AS500 Plus, but as others have mentioned, ambient temperatures will have a large effect on the temperatures you will see.
