So, as the title states, i got my H80 when they where first released.
It’s been doing a great job ever since. But it’s starting to get noisy, temps aren’t where they used to and i see a potential failure in my future. Plus an AM4 upgrade is inevitable and i don’t have mounts for that.
WIth all that said, i think i’d like to kiss AiO’s goodbye and get a new Air Cooler. My current rig is a i5 6500 on a MSI B150m Night Elf. It’s chucking along in a Fractal Define Mini with a 1070ti in it.
Since i can’t overclock, performance isn’t a major concern. I’d like something beefy enough to cool my CPU while making minimal noise. From what i’ve gathered, i shouldn’t have major issues with size. Even the D15 should fit my case.
With no budget given, What would you go for to keep my CPU cool and quiet? Is the NH-D15 still the best option, or is something like a dark rock (pro) 4 the better decision here? I’ve had Silent wing fans in the past and was thouroughly impressed. I haven’t had anything Noctua yet, but everyone says they know their stuff.
What do you reccon is my best option here?
