    Noctua NF-F12 vs Corsair ML120

    Hey everyone. I'm looking to swap my SP120s on my Corsair H100i AIO, since they're getting old and kind of noisy. I can't decide between the Noctua NF F12 and the ML120. Both have descent CFM and static pressure. The ML should be better (and looks better) But I heard they are much more noisy...

    [SOLVED] Radiator single fan stack vs doubble fan stack

    I remember watching a video (I think it was from Gamers nexus or JayzTwoCents) but I cant find it anymore, It was about testing radiators with fans on one side vs fans on both sides. Apparently depending on the Thickness of the radiator and the fin density, having too much fans caused the...

    [SOLVED] Is Push-Pull worth it for an AIO?

    I've gotten some good feedback on this on Reddit, but I'd like to see what this community thinks as well. TLDR: Is it worth it to do push/pull on an AIO rad when not using high static pressure fans and the rad is the only case intake? OP: Ok, so: I'll be moving from a Dark Base 700 to a...

    Question Should front-mounted intake radiator rest on bottom of case or closer to top?

    I am using a Fractal Design Define 7 case with a 280mm front-mounted intake radiator and I am putting an optical drive in the case. That leaves me two options for front mounting the radiator. I can rest it on the bottom as the manual shows. That leaves a gap on top between the optical drive...

    In the planning stages of a build at the moment and major part to figure out before building is how many rads to fit.

    Question Can I use two fans on a 360mm AIO?

    I recently bought the Nzxt Kraken x73 360mm Radiator... it comes with 3 fans. My case has already 3 fans in the front (really cool rgb fans) which means I would aim to do a push/pull config. The only problem is that I'm not sure if my case (Sharkoon TG6 rgb) fits all three of the fans on the...

    [SOLVED] Do I need a second Rad for an RTX 30 build?

    Hi All, I'm currently running a custom water cooling loop with a 360 rad, that is only cooling my CPU (i7-6700k). My current GPU (GTX 1080) is air cooled. I will be getting an RTX card (probably 3080, maybe 3090 if the stars align and budgets can be met), and when it finally releases, I may...
