I'm using a NOCTUA NH-U14S on an i9-10900x and it works fine. Temps go to around 70C on max load from what I recall.Is Liquid Cooler , NZXT Kraken Z63 280mm better or Air Cooler , Noctua NH-U12A better or any Liquid Cooling better for INTEL i9 10900K Processor ?
I want to get a new PC with i9 10900k . so wanted to ask about Air or Liquid cooling , If possible can you say what PC config is good for a 3D ArtistDefine "better"
What is the make/model of your case?
Regardless of the cooler, any case must be able to feed the cooling radiator with sufficient fresh air to let the cooler do it's job.
Liquid cooling is really air cooling. The difference is where the heat exchange takes place.
Two 120/140mm front intakes will be sufficient.
There are only two situations where I think a liquid cooler would be more appropriate.
- If there is insufficient headroom to install an air cooler.
- You are a hobbyist seeking record overclocks and can use a 360 aio or custom setup.
a) A twin tower air cooler like a noctua NH-D15s in a good case will cool about as well as a 280 aio cooler.
b) Air will usually cost less.
c) Liquid coolers do not last forever. In time air will permeate the cooling tubes rendering the cooler ineffective and need be replaced.
d) Aio coolers do not supply any cooling to the motherboard vrm parts. That is important for high end processors like I9's
e) AIO mounting involves tradeoffs. If the radiator is mounted in front, the cpu is cooled well, but the graphics card and motherboard get the heated air. Iv the radiator is mounted on top, the radiator gets warmed case air and the cpu will not be cooled as well.
f) Air will usually be quieter, particularly the noctua units.
g) While uncommon, liquid leaks can happen with disastrous consequences. Air will never leak.
IS Intel i7 -11700k better than i9-10900K for 3d rendering .I am not familiar with 3d artist.
A google search turned up this article which may be of interest to you:
What is your budget?
Is there a reason why you are particularly interested in i9-10900K?
To my mind, if buying new, one should opt for the latest generation.
That would be Intel i7 -11700k or i9-11900K.
Both have 8 cores and 16 threads.
The advantage is that the performance per core is on the order of 19% better vs the 10th gen i9-10900K.
If you need many threads, then the i9-10900K is a bit better with 10 cores and 20 threads.
AMD may be a good option, particularly if you need many threads.
The performance per core of the 5000 series processors is comparable to Intel
The 5950x has 32 threads, but it is a $1000 class processor.
Any of these products can generate a lot of heat.
No doubt a good cooler can get the last ounce of performance out of them.
How good do you need to be?
Depending on what you do, it may turn out that more ram, a strong graphics card, or fast ssd is more important than the particular cpu/cooling selection
I would think so.IS Intel i7 -11700k better than i9-10900K for 3d rendering .
I use a NH-D15s with a i9-11900KF.Not sure even a Noctua NH-D15 will tame a 10900K at full Intel-spec turbo speeds of 5.0 GHz beyond 60 seconds , but, XTU should allow easy tweaking to whatever sustained all-core clocks can be handled within a reasonable core voltage...
