    Default In Need Of Help Deciding On CPU Liquid Cooler

    Happy Holidays guys, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year's.

    So far guys, i am still gathering up information and purchasing parts for my upcoming build.

    So far I own the following:

    Code:
    Case: Thermaltake Versa N21 (Snow Edition)
    CPU: AMD FX-9590 8-core
    Motherboard: ASUS 970 Pro Gaming Aura
    Audio Card: Creative Soundblaster ZX
    I've been scouting around via online, I checked out what Corsair, NZXT, Cooler Master. Just to name a few. But I prefer, the liquid coolers with the coolant built in without having to go the other way of buying tubing and water cooling that way. I really hope it's something out there on the Market that can handle the heat of the massive heat devouring monster CPU.
    And reviews now these days are outrageous, you won't believe what people actually these days. it could be triple A hardware. that's professionally rated, like 5 stars, and they'd rate the product 2 stars because it got to them late... That's why I figured I'd head over here to pureoverclock.net Just worried about getting on of those, heard so many leakage stories, some good but I understand once those coolers leave the factor and transported via plane. or any other fast shipping transportation out there. It's already at risk due to things falling on them in transit... But anyways guys thanks for all the help over these months!


    Thanks In Advance!

    Corsair and NZXT are the same Asetek junkers with different fans and LEDs. So, you can just pick the logo you like better and be done with it. Really makes no difference.

    The Cooler Master Nepton series are a small step up. They still have a really inefficient rad design and marginal CPU block like the Asetek units, but at least they have a pump that can move a sufficient amount of liquid to work effectively. This typically results in the CMs being able to be a little less reliant on pumping air through the rad, so they can run a little quieter with the same results.

    But....you can get a Swiftech or EK for similar pricing these days, and they are worlds better than any of the CLCs out there. Better performance, significantly quieter and actually look like liquid cooling instead of kid's toy wannabe liquid cooling.

    Sorry for the late reply, have no idea whats going on with my Windows 10, its blocking me from using the internet so i dual booted my system and using W7 off my other hard drive.

    Thanks for the recommendation bud, so a 3 fan radiator, I haven't seen any of those before.
    my Case is a Thermaltake Versa N21 and it has space for a dual radiator that you could
    purchase two 120mm fans to make up the 240mm in size, that's only the maximum knowledge
    i have going into this, first time ever doing this. And thank you for your reply and sorry I got
    back to this so late been dealing with OS problems but no biggie ill have my new rig built in a
    few months I buy parts every month

    Thanks bud i highly appreciate the help, i will look into all the coolers you all recommended me, but i dont know i may just go
    and try the NZXT cooler, since i have purchased and currently using a fan controller.

    Going to do my homework on the NZXT Kraken, i was just hoping that it would keep the AMD FX-9590 8 core processor.
    and was very scared knowing the motherboard isn't really a 128watt but a 90 something watt i think that's about right as
    I explained it. But going to research all of those coolers later on today, just going to bookmark this thread I've started

    I want to thank you all, for the recommendation, i am going to study my homework since I've saved this thread on to a word file/html
    I have a feeling i know i may get stumped with confusion but i know i can google, you tube or come here you all are always helpful!

    And cant stop thanking you all for helping me understand.

    this is more of a question for the pro's than a recommendation

    how about that chaos liquid???
    that stuff looks amazing, but how is it's reliability and performance?

    Default Re: In Need Of Help Deciding On CPU Liquid Cooler

    In keeping with Ciarlatano's point, CM has a new cooler out which may warrant a look: Cooler Master: MasterLiquid Pro 280 for an AIO, it looks pretty nice, but I have NO IDEA how well it performs. There are three reviews linked on their page though. Looks to be an update of the Nepton, but that's pure speculation. It's tough to recommend an AIO because the manufacturers rarely give you any useful information like the flow rates in GPM, or the temperature delta input to output of the radiator at any given flow rate. So, although you know roughly how much TDP you have to handle, you have no way of sizing the system based on real numbers. Most people probably simply guess, or buy one and then make measurements of CPU temperature under air cooling and then under water with whatever unit they buy. I expect there are a lot of water cooling loops (including my own) that are far from optimal because of this.

    I'm pretty sure most of the dual fan models of AIO from decent manufacturers will cool this CPU. Hell, NewEgg recommends a single fan unit. This CPU is a power sucking monster though, and kicks out a heck a lot of heat, so a dual or triple fan radiator would seem to be a good idea, if for no other reason than a reduction in noise, as the great size of the rad coupled with more coolant will likely allow the fans to run at a lower RPM.

    Is that Motherboard one of the 3 or so that are truly able to provide the power this 9590 Monster requires?

    Honestly, if you get a 280mm or 360mm AIO, you'll be able to handle the heat well at that point. I'd recommend 280mm since it has almost as much cooling surface area but less fan noise. If you really want to take a step up in quality, then definitely look at the Swiftech Drive X2 Series. We have a review of those here SWIFTECH H320 X2 Review | Pure Overclock
