Hello!

I'm trying to improve/lower temps in my PC - especially GPU.
Current configuration looks like this: https://ibb.co/4Jqd7NG
and it's R3600/RTX3080Ti/2 x 16GB DDR3600/SEASONIC FOCUS 850W + a lot of M.2's/SSD's

Phanteks P400S case (with mesh front), Kraken X62 push/pull with 4 x AER P fans, 1 x 120mm on back (exhaust), 2 x 120 mm on top (exhaust).

The options I am considering is:

  1. Getting rid of X62 for Noctua DH15 and 2x140/3x120 high airflow intake fans
  2. Changing X62 to Z52 with 3 x 120mm fans (push config)
Thanks for any suggestions!
 
  1. I see no benefit (cooling wise) changing from a 280mm water cooler to the Noctua d15.
  2. Marginal difference x62 has larger rad but same pump
Radiator: 315 x 143 x 30mm Pump: 80 x 80 x 52.9mm

The Kraken X52. radiator is 275mm x 123mm wide x 30mm and same pump. (Assuming typo error as there is no z52)

What are your Thermals?

Ideal temps are 10-15C above room temperature at idle and 65-75C under load.

I checked temps that were a 15-17 higher than room temps. Now changed 3600 to 5609x

Decided to leave kraken despite of annoying cleaning of the radiator :(
