no... mine was 42.99 - 5.00 (coupon I had)=37.99. I bought it on Aug 2018.

By that time it was already OOS everywhere.

Look at EVGA's G2, G3, Corsair's RMx, BitFenix's Whisper M, Seasonic's FOCUS/FOCUS Plus, etc. They're all better units, and you can often find one of them for no more than $20 more than what you've selected here. Just my opinion.

Exactly! Not that the the CXM is a bad unit but for a high end rig like this, he should get a better psu.

but do I need a hdd if i have a ssd?

As in needing it so your pc works... no.

Getting the HDD will depend on your space requirements for all your data (videos, photos, movies, music, games, etc..). :)

If you have a large ssd which is sufficient for all your data then no... In my case, I have a small SSD, so I used to store all my data on a 2tb HDD which now is dead with all my information gone. So now I can only install a few games as my ssd is almost full.

Both are excellent options... The DRP4 will definitely be cheaper as you wont have to spend extra on another fan and chromax kit.

The NH-D15s will work fine. The only issue would be if you want black then you will need to purchase the chromax kit which IMO is expensive.

Your ram is 51mm tall. So if you want to use the cooler in dual fan mode then your only option is adding a 120mm fan. A 140mm fan will not work.

For some time there was one on ebay but it was so expensive...… You could get a much better gpu for that amount of money so it didn't make sense.

No experience with EVGA fans, but specs look good. EVGA makes great products and has an amazing CS. Their 240 and 280 AIO are great coolers. Fans are cheaper if you get them directly from EVGA... 9.99

Honestly the best fan IMHO is going to be the noctua NF-A12x25 PWM "BUT" and but... its brown and expensive...

Some ppl just hate the brown which I love..... The black noctua NF-F12 is a also a great choice. The EK-Vardar EVO 120ER Black BB (500-2200rpm) is also an amazing choice.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Not static pressure fans?"

I was recently told that these fans were not static pressure and that they were just regular airflow fans.

All fans will produce static pressure, some more than others... Usually some are optimized for airflow or static pressure. Enermax fans are decent fans. The twister storm at max speed 3500 will produce 11.125 which is a lot but at 3500 rpms its going to be extremely loud. Even at 1500 rpms it produces decent SP 2.512. And at 1500 rpms its not going to be that loud.

Also, I've watched JayzTwoCents' video on air flow vs air pressure fans and he said that hybrid fans were best for a custom water cooling loop that would have restrictions in front of the fans. I was wondering what are a few examples of those kinds of fans. Are these hybrid?

If a fan is in a restricted area or is used for a heatsink, AIO or custom loop then you need fans with good static pressure.

The EK Vardar evo, I would say is optimized for SP as this are meant for AIO. Still you could use them for airflow or SP but at 3000 RPM its going to be a loud. The highest I would go is around 2000 rpms and still I think its a lot.

Personally I like my rig to be silent so for an optimized SP fan I would recommend the standard noctua NF-F12 which max speed is going to be around 1500 rpms and SP at 2.61 …. If run at max speed you just hear a nice hum, though I don't run them at max speed.

What do you need this fans for?

HI just want to know what are the priorities here to upgrade.

Usually you upgrade based on requirements. Do you have a specific reason that requires upgrading?

Like EpicElephant posted I would get a SSD and (2X8gb) ram kit. Sell your ram....

Have you tried running the cpu at stock speed and see if the issue persists?

It might be an issue with that specific game....

Try removing Nvidia driver with DDU and reinstalling.

Im use to the brown but I do agree that noctua should make all their fans black too. They do have the NF-F12 original black. All industrial fans are black too, but those are high rpms. What I don't get is their best fan (NF-A12x25 PWM ) is only available brown...… I would love to buy one but its 30 bucks... :(

Using them I would agree, but buying them again with so many other better options no... Remember this are cheap fans unless you buy the OEMs only available from corsair store. The biggest problem is when you run them at lower speeds then this fans are not so efficient producing static pressure. I have compared them with noctua NF-F12 non industrial and noctua is so much better.

And according to Corsair these should be 3 pin DC regulated fans, not?

Yes.. this fans are available PWM and non PWM (3 pin).. BUt this fans are crap..... He wouldn't be improving compare to the ones provided with AIO.

The Corsair has a greater rotation speed, has lower airflow but higher SP rating and are 3 pin only. (so they will work on DC mode)

All corsair AIO come with 4pin pwm fans..... The 100i V2 comes with SP120L PWM fans. This fans spin at 2435 rpms at max speed but any fan at 2000 rpm is going to be loud. The standard Nf-f12 would do a great job. :)

The native fans of the H100i v2 have the best SP rating of 4.65 mm-H2O

Remember that you will need to run fans at full speed to get that amount of SP. And at full speed this fans are extremely loud.

When it comes to fans you can go with noctua or bequiet which are both great. Probably the best 120 fan right now would be the noctua NF-A12x25 PWM but its extremely expensive.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/zxx2FT/noctua-nf-a12x25-pwm-601-cfm-120mm-fan-nf-a12x25-pwm

The standard non industrial NF-F12 will do perfectly and there is a black version of it..

Was wondering what i should upgrade next. Any upgrade advice will be taken into consideration.

The first thing would be to get a good psu......... other than that this is a great build. Other updates really depend on your requirements.

Hello went to the local shop to pick up few stuff and told them I'm using i9 990k and man said my i9 990k won't work because I need to update bio first and need lower CPU is that true?

NOT true...... The 9900k will work with bios 0224 which is the first release BIOS for that motherboard.

I would agree that using less fans is going to help reducing dust. The only dust filter that works is the bottom one. You should definitely consider installing a fan under the gpu to help cool it and bottom filter is super easy to clean. DO NOT install a fan on front panel as the filter provided is TRASH. Try getting a demcifilter for the PSU which I highly recommend using a SFX.

You think that would be enough to cool the components and minimise dust build up?

As long as you have at least one fan on bottom cooling gpu, I think it can be fine.

sigh I was thinking of aio cooling the cpu

Only place you can mount the AIO is on side panel, unless you get a smaller 92mm AIO. My recommendation is to filter all fans set as intakes to reduce dust.
