Best cooling combo

Would this be the best cooling combo for Define R6:
  • AiO Celsius S36 top - pushing air out
  • two front 140mm fans - pushing air in
  • one rear 140mm fan -pushing air out

Re: There is no such thing as silent PC

Any chance you could share a screenshot of HWinfo or HWmonitor of you playing for a long session? im interested on seeing CPU temperature/load, GPU temperature/load, and their respective fans, as well as the Bequiet fans. I often monitored the temps with that exact program. I set all the BeQuiet! f...

Re: Is this normal?

So, 60C temp for under 20% CPU utilization is definitely not normal?

It could be that I applied too much thermal paste... could that be the culprit?

Is this normal?

Everything was fine up until yesterday. https://i.imgur.com/3LEnMHo.png The 8700k is overclocked to just 4.4GHz, with Noctua NH-D15S, and with 3 Silent Wing 3 system fans in a Define Mini C case.

Re: Why is Noctua NH-D15S so loud?

Btw how did you mount the Silent wing 3 on the clips
They have dual mounting system,you can either choose the hard ones or the rubbery ones, which are highly flexible; they bend just enough to use that Noctua fan bracket.

Re: Why is Noctua NH-D15S so loud?

All the fans now are Silent Wings 3 PWM, there was no problem mounting the 140mm on the NH-D15S.

The system is now quiet.

Noctua - never again.

BeQuiet obviously know what they are doing.

Re: Why is Noctua NH-D15S so loud?

1) Are you using the included low noise adapter cable with the fan to reduce max rpm from 1500 to 1200? I was actually wondering about that before installing everything, and people generally said that it doesn't matter if you have good motherboard and PWM. Additionally, it doesn't matter, because t...

All the fans are set to work at 50% for 30C temp, with 3 increments of 10-15 up to 60C temp.

It's almost like a handheld vacuum cleaner!

What the hell is going on, wasn't this suppose to be one of the quietest air coolers around? Are people lying about Noctua?

Zotac AMP doesn't have 3 fans, the AMP Extreme does. Those two - Zotac AMP and iChill X3 are just the ones I'm having trouble to decide between. If only there are sound test videos of both. I will not try to get any of the others because they cost much more. Stop veering off the topic. I created tha...

I can't get that one as it is not obtainable on the European continent, not even on UK Amazon.


As for the other one, no review mentions any crackling or popping.

Re: Having speakers and headphones at the same time?

Do you know what is the cheapest portable DAC/AMP that would not cause degradation of audio quality?

These Audiotechnica M30x headphones don't really need it; they sound great on their own, so only possible degradation would be a factor for the cheapest one.

I would like to have the convenience of not bothering to unplug headphones instead of speakers and vice versa. Both the Edifier speakers and Audiotechnica M30x headphones have a 3.5mm jack that plugs into the audio port, of which there is only one. So, I was thinking that maybe I could plug the head...
