Hey guys,

I have a corsair aio H100i v2 and its been 5 years. My 9900k is running at 4.7 ghz on all cores.
I was thinking of getting a 360 radiator maybe a corsair h150i. Or just leaving my aio for another two years maybe.
My temps seem fine and I've had no issues to this date. Do I try for longevity or bite the bullet and upgrade?
Any thoughts?

I'm in the same boat my h110i 280mm has had no issues in 5yrs this month, but I have my stock 3600x cooler when it finally goes down.
When it does go a trip 25 miles south to Micro Center will take care of that.
Are you going to upgrade your gtx 1070? to the new 3070?
I have a gtx 1070 as well, but idk if its worth for the games i play..
 
Well
I went and made a impulse purchase while i had the money, then nvidia surprised everyone with more performance for about the same price.
For my son's xmas I grabbed a

And

I really don't get that much time to game to really justify it for my system.
But
If our politicians get off their Duffs and get us another stimulus package before xmas and supplies can meet the demand, I mite get a 3070 for my son and I will take the 2070 super.
I would then put the 1070 ti in my wifes.

But at this time if nothing happens I will continue to use the 1070 ti and she get his Zotac gtx 1060 6gb.

Nice! That sounds really good. I'm building a computer for my nephew, so far I have an MB, CPU, and case. My brother is going to give up his graphics card (Haha a 2080ti) as he can write it off for tax purposes as he really wants a 3090 for work. So my nephew, (Without knowing it) will have not a bad system for himself. Also, my brother has a PSU for the pc as well. My nephew is quite lucky his uncles can help him out with his gaming needs haha.

Corsair has good fans but I definitely like the Noctua's IPPC's versions for their High Static Pressure and Higher Cfm's plus I already have enough Noctua's fans to reconfigure.

As to db levels Yes Noctua's will be loud @higher rpm's But I have always Loved the sound of a 4 barrel QuadraJet on a small block Chevy. LOL
