Make PC Quieter/ Which CPU Cooler

D57
  • 3 months ago

Hello guys, I have a PC with an AMD Ryzen 2600x, an MSI B450 Pro VDH Max and an MSI GeForce GTX 1660 super in an Aerocool Midi Rift White case with the preinstalled Aerocool 120mm as an exhaust back fan and an arctic P12 120mm as an intake front fan. Now, my system is pretty loud, especially under workload when the CPU temp reaches about 80 C, probably because I use the AMD Boxed CPU cooler.

So how can I quiet my system down and lower the temperature, should I:

  1. Buy quieter and more efficient case fans (or just more of them),

  2. Buy an aftermarket CPU cooler (Air or AiO), my budget is up to 70$, Air cooler should preferably be black und smaller than 155mm because of the case size. If an AiO is more efficient or quiet, I could only place it in the front (up to 360mm, probably a bit overkill) or on top of the power supply and hard drives (240mm),

  3. Do 1. and 2.,

  4. Just adjust fan speed curves and deal with it?

Thanks in regard, if you need more information, just ask.

I find good case airflow and a decent tower cooler will reduce noise by a good amount. Not a fan of the front intake on that case as it looks like the front fans fight for air from the narrow vent on the left side of the front panel but it is better than nothing.

Not many CPU cooler options for 155mm clearance but a good choice is Scythe Fuma 2 cooler for $60 USD. It will be more silent than a dual fan AIO as the AIO will also have a pump and flowing water for added noise beyond the fans.

I'd definitely change out the cooler first. In addition to the Fuma 2, there's the Scythe Mugen 5, beQuiet Pure Rock Slim, Cryorig M9a (if you can actually get one) any of which would be more effective and quieter than the stock Spire cooler.

I have a huge hyper 612 cooler on a 2400G and 3 more 120mm case fans. They are all 1500 rpm 120 fans and with all of them full speed its not that loud. I think an air cooler with a larger fan, a good cooler known to be quieter, if you can fit one will make a big difference. I have only played older games on this and it rarely speeds up the fans which are all motherboard controlled. Only benchmark programs speed up my fans, but I don't have a GPU in there yet either.
