Whats the point of AIO pump Extreme/Performance profile?

there are two profiles for H100i v2 pump speed. Quiet and Extreme(or Performance) mode.

 

Quiet mode runs at ~1800 and Extreme mode runs at ~2800 rpm.

 

I see no difference in temps, can a decent fellow please :D: explain why faster flow doesn't reduce the temps. and what benefit does it provide other than just running faster and wasting more power and reducing the life span of cooler?

 

What's the point? what made engineers to do this decision?

A 6700K just doesn't produce enough heat for it to make a difference. It may make a difference for higher TDP processors.

And it's unlikely to reduce the life span of the cooler. As long as you have it powered properly (see section B of the AIO FAQ), the pump speed shouldn't have a difference on lifespan.

I see, yeah it's powered correctly, CPU q fan control is disabled. It was not powered correctly for a few minutes though, the times that i was configuring the bios :)

 

Thanks for the reply. good to know that it doesn't affect life span.
