    Yes i have been studying this system a lot. Those coolers are great for cooling the CPU but the problem is they don't cool the VRM on the motherboard so i'm in search of a Blow down cooler i'm thinking about Noctua NH-C14S or CoolerMaster GeminII S524 Ver2 because the cooler needs to the cool the VRM as well the CPU and i refuse to jerry rig 80 MM fans on my VRM for my motherboard. But if it comes to i have to get a tower cooler i will zip tie fans on the vrm i just prefer not doing that ya know? Hyper 212 did a decent job of cooling the cpu idle,and underload but couldn't keep the VRM from hitting 70-80C people will say it's false but when i have multiple programs telling me that the North&South VRM are hitting 70-80C then its time to change coolers. also the H7 i had before as well. It kept everything cool on idle but underload was a different story. Just from running a game i would hit 75C on the CPU almost shutting down the system.

    Good point, although I use it 4 years without problems

    Never said the cooler was bad not what i was saying at all. The FX series has two VRM points which i will point out.


    Both of those need to get cooling which tower coolers can't do. Unless i jerry rig a fan to push on both of the VRM. so i need a blow down air cooler to hit on both of those VRM. To better explain my self.

    AM4 Motherboard:


    Has one VRM to cool the CPU which then you could use a tower cooler cause it will push air through the back a hit the VRM keeping it cool a the same time if you did a push/pull configuration.

    You know that even if it leaks, it won't damage anything, right? They use non-conductive fluid in the loop, and AIO liquids are not susceptible to leaks like a custom loop. If you're running an AMD chip, you NEED to be on water. I used to run an 8350BE and it would still boil a liquid cooler. you can't beat thermal efficiency. It's already a big power consumer and under performs compared to i7s, but bringing the load temps back into the 60s really helps performance a lot.

    I will vouch every day of the week for corsair's all-in-one liquid coolers. The software can be configured to shut the system down if the cooler goes over a temp. For example, my water temps are 42c under full load on my i7 clocked to 5.1ghz. If the water temp hits 44, that means my CPU temp just hit 85c, so I trigger a shut down. Easy stuff.

    I don't even know what I'm doing anymore

    Not strictly true for all AIOs (vast majority of the modern ones it's true) and it's still fluid so it can potentially ruin components, it's just not very likely. It just takes a very long time to wait for components to naturally dry out. People are a lot more likey to suffer from pump failure than a leak these days.

    Plus AIO liquid coolers are only needed when really over clocking the board and the FX series needs something cooling the VRM. I don't plan to overclock i just need a quiet cooler for a Tech Support job i plan to get. I can't have customers hearing this jet engine.

    I disagree. AIOs are suitable for when people want overclocking, prefer low temperatures, live in quite a warm country, or generally like the ease of installation / aesthetic. For your use case I don't see the need unless you get ridiculously warm temperatures.
