uruquiora Posted March 6, 2013 Share Posted March 6, 2013 I currently have the following set-up : - Corsair Obsidian 650D case - Corsair Hydro H80 Cooler - Asus P8Z68-V Intel Z68 - Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 6970 2048MB GDDR5 - Intel Core i7-2600K @3.40GHz / stock (not planning to OC at this stage as my CPU is not the bottleneck for the games I play) - Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey 8GB ISSUE: My Gf is always complaining about the noise of the PC when I'm playing next to her when she watches tv. The couch she's on is maybe 1-1.5 meter from the case. The truth is, at full loads when I play BF3 at max settings, the PC is kind of competing with my hoover I have pushed the button on top of the H80 as it was set to the 2nd position and I set it to the 1st positions, but it didn't change much noise-wise in fairness. I am looking for an alternative CPU cooler that is as quiet as possible and compatible with my set-up. Budget is €50-60 Any suggestions ? I don't care at this stage to have a closed water cooler or an air cooler. I am quite disappointed with the noise of the H80. Also If you can recommend a great thermal paste, I could use advice on that. Thanks very much ! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
