Re: Advice or Recommendation On Liquid Cooler Model?
I just installed a XSPC Rasa 750 RX240 kit. The radiator fit inside my HAF 922, don't know how it would work with that case but it includes mounts for outside/to case mounting. It is as quiet as whatever fans you have. They also have the RS240 which has a slimmer radiator.
Also depends on your case cooling. I have an Antec Three Hundred Two case for another rig with the Zalman liquid cooler (about the same as the Corsair H80) and have it mounted to the side panel grill.
Another thing to consider is high end air cooling. If you can fit a Noctua NH-D14 (I have one of these also) it works very well. But to be honest I've never owned an AMD cpu and don't know much about what works but I assume most kits have mounts for AMD.
Yet something else to think about, if you are getting a lot of video card heat then just water cooling them would probably net you better results overall.
If you want a no hassle all in one water cpu only cooler then if you can fit the Corair H100 it's a decent cooling unit although the fans are quite noisy if they need to run on highest speed all the time (can swap fans). Whatever you end up doing, do your research to make sure it will all fit in your case.
In the past month I have tested several all in one liquid coolers and for some setups they work fine, but it's been an expensive education.
