Hello everyone! I currently have an i7-8700K on an Asus Prime z370-A (ATX CASE), and I'm basically waiting for Ryzen 7000 at this point before changing the entire PC build, as I'm also planning on doing a custom EKWB Watercooled System.



Meanwhile, however, i want to know what is the best Cooling Option for my current rig in terms of Noise Reduction and Overall Silence, basically i don't care about having the best temperatures in the world (I'm fine with normal temps and i don't overclock the CPU) but i do care about silence since that's basically the main reason of this post. So to deliver normal or somewhat acceptable temps while keeping the noise as low as possible, what would the best option be in this case? I don't care about the type of cooling solution itself (be it AIO, air,etc) as long as it's the best choice for my primary aim.



So that's basically it. Thanks for reading!

Do you have a budget?
What is the make/model of your case and what is the fan arrangement?
Noise comes from fans spinning at high rpm.
At what rpm are your current case fans running, and what is your current cooler?
How distant is your pc from normally where you sit?
More distant is better from a perceived noise point of view.

No budget limit , as long as its either an AIO or air solution (not a custom cooling setup)
The cpu has an hyper 212 evo v2
I tested each fan individually and the only one giving me issues currently is the CPU Fan. The rest of the temps are normal on the motherboard
I usually sit next to it (it sits below my desk)

I asked about the case to check on cooler height available.
The hyper212 has A 120MM fan. It is 159mm high.
As a stronger alternative, you can use the noctua NH-D15s which is 160mm high.
It uses a slower turning 140mm fan and can be very quiet.
Noctua includes a couple of low nose adapters to lower fan speed more.

Any cooler needs a good source of fresh cooling air.
What is your front fan intake arrangement?

Below your desk is a good arrangement.
Possibly to the side make any noise it creates less.
