Closed Would an H80i outperform my current HS? Tags: Water Cooling Thermalright Silver CPUs Overclocking Last response: January 12, 2013 5:33 PM in Overclocking Share OpalReactor January 7, 2013 5:12:36 AM So I've currently got a Thermalright Silver arrow with a single Xigmatek 1255 in the middle as my CPU cooling. Would a Corsair H80i outperform it? Or are there better ways to cool my CPU?

Why do you only have one fan on it now? OpalReactor January 7, 2013 8:52:02 PM My RAM dimms are vengeance, so there isnt enough clearance for a front fan. Also noise is an issue, but i might set all my fans to low and see what my temps are.

Why do you only have one fan on it now? Actually I just bought an Aerocool Shark 140mm to replace the Xigmatek, I'll probably move the Xigmatek to the third slot on the HS. So it'll go [Case Exhaust Xigmatek] <-- [Xigmatek]<--[Heatsink]<-[Aerocool]<--[Heatsink]<--[Intake] Groveling_Wyrm January 11, 2013 11:24:53 AM Mixing fans isn't a good idea unless you are sure that they are running at the same cfm and fan speed. Otherwise you can stress one or more fans by creating a pressure differential.

A: nope its the other way round. you could get a Kaze Jyuni for the front but you're much better now than shelling out on an Hxx series cooler. OpalReactor January 12, 2013 11:22:24 AM Thanks man, I just checked my temps @ idle with low fans. 33 degrees. In Guild wars 2 with low settings, 40 degrees. GW2 at full settings, 47 degrees. Going to get a 3-4 pin adapted for this Xigmatek and put it on the side of my case. I might get another Aerocool Shark 140mm (Green) for my heatsink down the track.
