I am super sensitive to noise. And I am a night owl, so I can work at night, in complete silence quite often. I never wear headphones.
I'd prefer my CPU to ran hot and quite than the opposite, so I edited my fan settings to ramp up RPM slowly. It gave me bearable noise levels. OFC sometimes when...
Well, I just built my Sentry 2.0 with C7 and Noctua fan - I haven't done enough testing to draw any conclusions yet, but it seems to be reasonably quite and I don't have any air turbulence issues.
Thanks for reply, though!
So I played Metro Exodus for around 1:30 h and GPU peaked at 80 C because it maintained low fan rpm, was quite silent and CPU (AMD Ryzen 5 1600) peaked at 62 C.
I am very excited about performance\noise\thermals combination.
Will try to undervolt GPU, though
I pushed all cables aside and successfully closed the case 8)
So you can update your GPU compatibility list to include Radeon VII - it fits, but only with low profile power cables. I used this ones -...
Anyone tested Cryorig C7 with Noctua's fan on low RPM? How's noise? Don't know what cooler to buy - there's a lot of information about C7 causing too much noise because of turbulence, and it seems that L9a isn't as good as C7 when it comes to heat dissipation
Thanks for a reply! I wasn't considering to use Cryorig with their stock fan - I'd replace it instantly with Noctua's fan. But as far as I've heard somewhere - it was causing too much turbulence, so was quite loud?!
is there a consensus on the best cooler for Sentry?
As far as I understand Black Ridge needs low profile RAM and I have TridentZ that's quite tall, so there are only two options there - Noclua L9A and Cryorig C7 (Copper Edition)?
Which one should I buy? Looking to build new rig in my Sentry over...
Anyone has any idea, how to apply undervolting on this MoBo on system startup?
Biostar is just fucking retards with their BIOS. You can undervolt manually through their tool, but it's not automatically applied on system restart facepalm.jpg
My point is - it's not worth it. Sentry should a be a sexy as hell computer case, that would please everyone's eye, but this hatch will totally ruin the looks. Any designer here to explain this? :)
I am totally OK to disassemble my PC every time I need to replace something. For most of the...
I cannot describe, why I dislike it so much, it just feel, that it's ugly. And it is quite redundant, frankly speaking. For the sake of CPU heatsink testing that will be done by a handful of people during a couple of days you'll ruin aesthetics of the case for every one, permanently.
Can't say anything objective about noise yet, I have it at my work and I am sitting in the corner with ~20 computers for 4 people, most of them working simultaneously :)
But some times I can hear it's fan spining faster, giving you this laptop like noise experience. But if you are...
I have a 100Watt SKU, it's an amazing little beast, but I haven't used it much. It can play a lot of modern games at 60 FPS on high settings and that is, god damn, impressive!
I am not sure how much I can talk about it, though
That's the response I got from Cryorig regarding C7 Cu release:
The C7 Cu Edition we showcased in Computex is just a proof of concept for now and we're still working on it. So there is no time frame for its release but the C7 Cu should be able to hit the shelves by the end of the year.
Intel is going for more cores too. That means they'll have lower clocks as well and more games will be optimized for core count.
You should not worry about single threaded performance of Ryzen in games unless you plan to play on FullHD beyond 60 FPS
