Should be stated that gunk builds up on the insides of liquid coolers. Also theres chance of pump failure & leaks.
A big dumb block of metal, combined with a top notch fan (i.e. the noctua - guaranteed for 7 years) will function for a LONG time.
Bigger, slower fan = less dust buildup.
I also run a positive-pressure case setup, with removable dust filters behind the intake fans. This has worked remarkably well at keeping the case clean.
Of course, it also helps not to have pets.
Okay, I see a generic-looking direct-touch heat pipe tower cooler. I'm struggling to see how that's the "Best cpu cooler hands down". It might be good value for money, but there's no way it's beating models with more heat pipes and more fans.Best cpu cooler hands down is not even on this list. Look for "snowman cpu cooler" cooler on aliexpress. Cheap and performance is top notch! its like under 20 us dollars lol.
But the surface area is different, since the big fan is moving air over more fins. So, even if they're moving the same amount of air (and presumably the same amount of dust), the dust gets spread out over a larger area and therefore takes longer to build up and block the airflow.If you have both a big, slow fan and a small, fast fan that move the same CFM of air (I'm pretty sure dust gets into computers cause it floats around in the air and fans eat air), then wouldn't the build up of dust be pretty much the same between the 2 fans? Fluid dynamics isn't really my thing.
Sounds odd. Was she trying to play with the CPU fan?I had a big cat charge full speed straight into a comp case's acrylic window,
The "round-up" articles, where they highlight "Best SSDs" or "Best GPUs" often update an existing article and must've inherited its comment thread. Sometimes the old comments will be left in a separate thread that gets linked from the new one (i.e. literally a post with a link in it).It just occurred to me the site says this article popped 5 days ago, but the comments responding to it started up over a year ago. The chronology seems unusual.
I looked, lots of reviews of receiving damaged parts. That’s a gamble I wouldn’t take just to save $15-25.Best cpu cooler hands down is not even on this list. Look for "snowman cpu cooler" cooler on aliexpress. Cheap and performance is top notch! its like under 20 us dollars lol.
