liquid cooling question

Recommended Posts

I have a am4 plate for my h105. i been thinking of getting a h100 v2.

 

My question ... would i see any cooling temp difference between them? My h105 is about 3 years old. works fine. but im fully rebuilding my rig with a new case in a week so i was curious if i should retire it or keep going.

 

Im running a ryzen 2700x

nevermind i got my answer i had to dig and i found the h100 v2 to be slightly better.

 

I am not sure I completely buy into that. The H105 is a 240 x 38mm thick radiator. The H100i v2 is a more standard 27mm. With the same fans at the same speed, the H105 should perform slightly better. However, the differences should be inconsequential for normal use. It would be better to decide between the two of them based on physical characteristics.

 

The H105 is 38mm thick. Make sure it can fit. Lots of somewhat shallow top cases out there lately.

 

The H100i v2 is a Link control system cooler. This means you get some RGB and coolant based fan control. The H105 is more traditional give me 12v, you set up your own fans, and highly reliable. Some people still gravitate to these coolers for those aspects and I have a H110 that I keep for the same reasons.

Im just more worried about my pump. its a lil over 3 years old and im running a ryzen 2700x that does get hot quick. all my cases will support it. i was thinking of the h110. i heard the 100i v2 is really good

If your case comfortably supports a 280mm radiator, then the H110i or H115i PRO are good choices. While under a full bench test with fans blasting, you can get near equal results, the big advantage of a 280mm and its larger surface area is you can let the fans spin pretty low and still get good cooling. On my 5930K that pulls about 215W, I never needed more than 800-900 RPM for anything and I absolutely could have used less. So it's one of those things like "do you prefer 2x140mm@800 rpm or a pair of 120mm@1300? For me, the 140 is an easy choice.

Right now i have a older CM haf 932 Im tired of looking at it.. so im getting a corsair 760t I believe it will fit uptop. i am just not keen on how well my h105 is cooling the 2700x full load its almost 65-68c.= just not a comfortable temp for my taste where my 1800x (i sent back my 1800x for the 2700x because my 1800x wouldn't turbo boost and it would stick at its stock speed only) it was hardly 50c . Makes me wonder if the stock coolers these new ryzens come with would even handle a full load.. I did notice after a few years around the rad fittings some leaked out very little and dried so that's another reason i may wanna retire this cooler. maybe im wrong who knows lol.. I know the new 2700x is balls fast its proven that to me already playing games. probably because the 1800x was stuck at 3.6 ghz and this one is pushing to 4.4 ghz

I hafta agree with c-attack here ... the sweet spot for radiators is definitely the 280mm and that's what I'd go for if your case fits it. The pro version comes with ML series fans as well ... it's really, really, really quiet and runs a good 4C cooler (coolant temp) at load than my previous H100iV2 did.

OK, on the 760T I would go 280mm as well. You will be 140mm x 2 on the front and the back 140mm exhaust as well. No reason to break the theme and after finally going back to my original 140mm based build recently, I do like the subtle difference.

 

The H105 should be able to handle the 2700x, so it may be you are getting some performance decline. I also would not jump to conclusions just yet on CPU temps alone. There are usually some things to work out in the BIOS on new releases. With the H105 you can't see coolant temp, but you can make a decent guess by comparing your idle resting CPU temp before and after the load finishes. High idle before or after might suggest the efficiency is declining.
