    Cooler Master 212 Evo vs 212 Evo V2 (using the same fans)

    Yeah, instant heat issues are not enough cooling, not airflow issue .. or possibly poor seating / TIM not doing it's job. But if it's been doing sense first startup on new system is cooler. I agree, as long as it keeps CPU cool with your daily tasks it's cooling fine.

    Cooler Master 212 Evo vs 212 Evo V2 (using the same fans)

    Both have basically the same cooling. Not sure what your system airflow setup is, but if it takes10-15 minutes for CPU temp and fan speed to peak when CPU goes from idle to full speed, then case airflow is likely culprit. With case airflow setup properly CPU will it peak temp in 2-4 ,minutes...

    Identifying Tower Heatsink?

    Sorry, I missunderstood. I don't know if crossbar is same or not. Problem I see is if users has AM4 system and AM3 cooler they do not have AM4 hole spacing on mount to attach to motherobard.

    Identifying Tower Heatsink?

    Not true. FM2, FM3, AM2, AM3 mounting hole spacing in motherboard is 48 x 96 mm. AM4 mounting hole spacing is 54.18 90 mm. Look at image below and you will see new mount with older FM1, FM2, AM2, AM3 black mounting holes are not the same spacing as new AM4 mounting bracket red holes. Most new...

    Identifying Tower Heatsink?

    Prolimetech website shows 5 Megahelm coolers, sadly no AM4 mounts. Thermalright still sells updated mount for their thick base coolers. The ones with angled top and bottom edges like on orginal Silver Arrow, TRUE Spirit 140 Power, HR-22, Ultra, Ultima, Venemous, etc.

    So I got a new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU. Want to know if this air cooler will be enough to keep it cool

    P400A cooler clearance is only160mm which limits choices considerably. NF-A14 front intakes with all openings in mounting panel not covered by them blocked off so the air they push into case cannot leak around in front to go in circles instead of on through case and out will give you plenty of...

    Fan control question

    I agree, 4x fans might be too much on single fan header. A fan rated 0.20A can and do draw 3-6 times that 0.6-1.2A) at startup or if something stops impeller from turning.

    For that kind of money you can get a much better cooler. Something like Mugen 5 linked below. https://www.newegg.com/scythe-scmg-5100/p/13C-0004-00075?Item=9SIA9ZH6GN8650 Would help to know what case & case fans, motherboard and RAM you are using. Then we can make suggestions we know will fit. ;)

    Optimal i9 Cooling Orientation?

    Air flowing into case through a radiator will be about the same temp everywhere inside of case. Every degree warmer air is become same degree hotter GPU and other components will be. Air temp entering cooler to component temp is a 1:1 ratio (SamE load & fan speed). Obviously rad as intake...

    i7-5820k Overheating After Lapping

    I agree. The AIOs I listed while much better than CLCs are still made with components as low or lower in quality than lowest quality custom loop components.

    i7-5820k Overheating After Lapping

    I lap mine to finish like you did because difference in finish was enough to measure. I tested a few AIO/CLCs and found CLCs (not all AIOs are CLCs) to be marginal at best. Not sure if you care or not, but not only are CLCs the cheapest built of the cheapest water cooling, but their pumps...

    Anyone used the Noctua A14 3000rpm industrials?

    Thanks D-EJ915 The Cooljag I got have straight motor mounting arms and 3 mounting hole pattern corners and newer Thermalright's are curved. Thermalright also has padded corners and like you said braided cable. Overall Thermalright are nicer looking and might perform a little better. My...

    Anyone used the Noctua A14 3000rpm industrials?

    Interesting. I just searched "Thermalright" on amazon.com and get lots of Thermalright products being sold by Nan's Gaming Gear who is North American distributer. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=thermalright&ref=nb_sb_noss Thermalright Direct is located Shenzhen, China while head offices are...

    Anyone used the Noctua A14 3000rpm industrials?

    Bit of trivia, before I found Cooljag / Everflow and Thermalright started making square ones I was trimming rounded sides of TY-140/TY-143 to 140mm width and made adapter plates to mount them onto 140mm radiators or to 140mm case vents. If you would like pattern and details I could post themt...
