    Question Best 155mm CPU cooler?

    I currently have a Corsair H115i (slightly older one but not like super old), but it just isn't keeping up at the noise levels I want and I've been having issues with the fans/pump working with iCue. The whole experience of using an AIO has not been great, so I think I want to go to an air...

    Question Dual fan (rgb?) air cooler suggestions.

    so I am currently using a an AIO but I am not liking the performance or situation I am getting from it. I was wondering what are some suggestions for a dual fan air cooler with good performance. I also prefer RGB but if I can get better performance without it then its not a huge requirement.

    [SOLVED] Stock cooler for Ryzen 3700X or aftermarket for gaming?

    So this build is for my wife's new gaming rig. I'm use to Intel, so I have been getting aftermarket coolers for every other PC I've built. Not going to be overclocking much, if at all, but will be using this system for mainly gaming. I'm trying to avoid water cooling due to the risk of...

    Question Good Case For Air-Cooling

    Hello all, I am looking to upgrade my PC case as I've been disappointed by the build quality of the one I have now. It is a Corsair 780T and although it gives great cooling performance the build quality seems rather bad. The plastic from which the case is made out of seems flimsy and there are...

    [SOLVED] Ryzen 7 3700X 45C idle temps

    As the title says, I am getting 45C idle temps on my Ryzen 7 3700X with a Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi cooler (according to CoreTemp and CAM). What should I do? I haven't tried reapplying thermal paste yet but I doubt that would cause a 10 - 20C drop.

    [SOLVED] CPU air cooler for Silverstone RL06 case

    Am looking for a high performance air cooler to fit. I wanted the Noctua D15, however, the specs look like Noctua isn't an option. According to Newegg the Max CPU Cooler Height Allowance is 158mm. Any suggestions for a premium cooler that performs like a Noctua that fits? Many thanks.

    [SOLVED] Can top exhaust fans "steal" air from heatsink fans and rear exhaust fans?

    The case setup that I'm planning to have is essentially the exact same as the setup portrayed in the rightmost picture of this Amazon review (you can click the picture to enlarge it). However, instead of liquid cooling, I intend to use a Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT CPU cooler, which blows...

    [SOLVED] Does airflow really work the way I think it does in this case?

    I have a question about the fan setup portrayed in this picture. I don't know if I'm crazy, or if airflow actually works this way, but isn't the air being drawn into the case by the uppermost front intake fan being immediately sucked out of the case by the first top exhaust fan before it has a...
