Re: Silent Wings 3... high speed or normal version? (3950x build)

I already bought x3 120 and x1 140 SW3 high speed. Will run cinebench to check temps with default r6 fans and then mount them and compare. I would like that the fans were white to match the black and white setting... but whatever, I didnt even buy a window, but I would maybe in the future buy a pane...

Re: Silent Wings 3... high speed or normal version? (3950x build)

My suggestion is always to try the stock fans first and see if they meet your needs, rather than buy new before you try. Why 3 120mm's in front instead of 2 140mm? What's your perceived benefit? normal vs high speed: I've never run a case fan above 800rpm. It tends to be very diminished returns at ...

Re: Silent Wings 3... high speed or normal version? (3950x build)

I would buy the BL067, if you need more than 1000rpms on the case fans, it wont be quiet and you should re think your build toward better cooling even water, so for me the BL067 (1000rpm version) is the ones i go with. On the 120, if money is no object i would go with NF-A12x25 PWM, now if they are...

Silent Wings 3... high speed or normal version? (3950x build)

I was told the default Fraktal R6 fans aren't good enough and it's worth changing for some Silent Wings 3.

Should I replace the stock Define R6 fans or its a waste of money?

Should I replace them with say, Noctuas (dunno which ones) or it will not even be noticeable? Will I notice less noise? what changes in cooling can I expect as well?

Anyone here actually owns a 3950x?

So which fan are you using? Should I get the NH-D15S or the NH-DH15? How's noise when browsing the internet vs doing some task (like video editing, making music) vs gaming? Which case are you using?

Re: How annoying are the fans on the new mobos?

Worst case scenario, I can always buy a x670 if the mobo is shit and keep the rest. if you're fine with this and don't have a need for pcie 4.0 (super fast storage) right now, you might be better off with a guaranteed quiet b450/x470 and the money saved can go to a x670/whatever if there are featur...

Re: How annoying are the fans on the new mobos?

I think you're right that x470 doesn't suit your needs after all. High-end x470 mobos have overbuilt power stages, so they would have no trouble powering a 3950x. But their BIOS updates are behind schedule compared to x570, so for example AMD's firmware that improves CPU clocks by 50-100MHz is mont...

Re: How annoying are the fans on the new mobos?

570 boards have a fan just to support the power cost of PCIe 4. If you don't think you need PCIe 4 (ie: to support a high end GPU in maybe 2023 where it might make use of the extra bandwidth, or have applications that can make use of SSDs that don't exist yet), then don't go with a 570 board (savin...

I would make great use of the extra cores. I dont really feel confident buying an older board. Then go with GIGABYTE X570 AORUS XTREME AMD Ryzen 3000 PCIe 4.0 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.2 AMD X570 E-ATX Motherboard , the only fanless X570 (besides the AsRock aqua) or wait for B550.

Re: How annoying are the fans on the new mobos?

x470 and b450 motherboards work great with the newest Ryzen processors, are fanless, and are less expensive than x570. I have an ASRock Taichi x470 and Ryzen 3600, but you could probably use a b450 board that's half or a third of the price. Just make sure it's "Ryzen 3000 ready" or compatible with ...

Can you recommend me a case to go with it that improves on the Define r4? Does the r6 improve on it? The R6 is a incremental improvement over the R4/5, it still follows the same basic principles, specially on the Define series where its a more closed/restricted enclosure.

Yeah, I have one. I went with a giant custom loop cooler, but it's quite a hothead even with that, unless you crank up the pump and/or the fan speed, which means it's no longer silent. My main problem is that even with mundane usage, like web browsing, it will spike into the same temperature as wit...

I have seen on Overclock.net that ARO-M14 may be better than big coolers like Le Grand Macho and NH-D15 just because it has a concave to flat base instead of convex base the other has (because they are Intel oriented rathar than AMD).

So its been weeks now. If you were to buy a 3900x for a silent build (with no liquid cooling) which MOBO, PSU, CPU fan, and RAM would you get a this point??

Any BIOS/flashing upgrades I would need to do?
