Good Morning,

Just need to figure out how I want to keep my CPU cool. The CPU is the Ryzen 7 3700x. The full build is here: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/BKnqWb

CPU Options:

  1. Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler

  2. Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM 75 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler

  3. Custom water loop for both CPU and GPU cooling.

Unless you're chasing benchmark numbers, even the NH-D15 is more than enough cooler for a 3700X. I would make my usual suggestion of Mugen 5 or Macho, but they might be hard to source at the moment - hit or miss.

I’ll take a look at those.

Noctua NH-D15 vs the BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro4.

I’m considering the BeQuiet DRP4.

Plan is to pair that with the following case fans:

Intake: a pair of be quiet! SilentWings 3 PWM High-Speed 77.57 CFM 140 mm Fans

Exhaust: a pair of be quiet! SilentWings 3 PWM High-Speed 73.33 CFM 120 mm Fans

Thoughts...
