Corsair H170i Elite LCD - QL fans?

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

I have just bought a H170i elite lcd 420mm watercooling for my i9-12900K. I was thinking since I have changed all fans to QL140, should I replace shipped ML fans too? Are QL fans recommended for usage on a watercooling system? Should there be a big difference in temperatures?


Best regards

The ML fans are going to be more efficient - you'll get better cooling at lower fan speeds.

How much of a difference? Likely not a lot. Maybe 1C-2C on the coolant temp at similar fan speeds. If you go push/pull (assuming that you have the room for it), you can mitigate even that.
