    Anyway I hope you understand that the majority of the people reading don’t have the experience and skills to do such a modification and if I released such an information some people may broke their fans trying to do it.

    Thanks for the link to the article how to mod the fan.

    Hello Jai,
    I don’t recommend using different fans because:
    If one of the fans is rotating slower or is with lower airflow level this will be bad for the overall performance. For example if you put the slower fan as push fan on the radiator and the Blade Master fan as pull you will lose the static pressure of the original fan. If you put the Blade Master fan as push fan, the back one will act like 1/3 barrier for the air coming out of the fins.
    I think you can find to purchase additional Blade Master fan everywhere and it is pretty cheap one 🙂

    @MiaHeatFan
    Pretty nice. That was good information. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Hello Dan,
    I can’t say exactly because:
    1. I always change the coolers so I can’t really compare the AIO with Air cooler. And I never thought doing it. But you can always look at my other reviews, see the temperature results, see the ambient temperature and do a simple calculations to make the delta temps and just compare it.
    2. When I do the tests I always show the maximum performance of the cooler with the current processor. For that reasons all fans are working at maximum speed inside the case, which boost a bit the overall cooling inside the case.

    Best Regards

    P.s. Reading the full article, not just the results will give you better vision of the details 🙂

    Hello and welcome to DVTests.com

    That is one really good question….
    Unfortunately I can’t say with exact numbers how much better the new model is because:
    http://dvtests.com/?p=10982 Antec Kuhler 620 was tested on a processor – AMD Athlon 2 x4 620 (95W) without overclock, which I don’t use anymore. A quad core processor which was not so power hungry as the AMD FX8350 (125W) without overclock.

    Anyway lets try doing some calculations:
    AMD Athlon 2 x4 620 (95W) vs AMD FX8350 (125W) is like 24% more power consumed for the second processor
    max temp for Kuhler 620 at the test was 50 degrees, while for Kuhler 650 it is 58 degrees, which make 14% high temp result.
    And if my calculations are right, I am not really good with mathematics, that should be 10% higher performance. Of course these are just a thoughts and noone can guarantee it like this…

    Hello Rado and welcome to http://www.DVTests.com

    We already discussed that matter few comments above.

    Hello Linda,
    I hope these fans will do the job.
    First i think you should keep in mind the overall power consumption so you don’t burn anything.
    Second you need to slightly remove the sleeving of the cable so you can see the cables colours.
    There should be four cables:
    Black – ground
    Red – 12v cable
    Yellow – tachometer for rpms
    Blue or green – pwm control

    You will need the black and red and be careful not to turn them around because you will burn the motor circuit.

    Computer fans are DC so you need new adapter. If you already tried with this one than you probably burned them already

    Unfortunately I can’t overclock higher than 4.7GHz per core. There is no doubt the cooler will handle but I doubt the motherboard VRMs will. Apart from that I require voltage over 1.52V for 4.8 and the VRMs are overheating even with additional cooling.

    Soon there will be a comparison between ThermalRight Silver Arrow IB-E vs New Noctua NH-D14, just waiting for the NH-D14 to arrive 🙂

    It will be a serious battle.

    Hello Hugo and welcome to DVTests.com,
    NH-L9a is a cooler especially designed for a low profile mini ITX systems which usually use processors with very low consumption.
    I believe Noctua has outstanding support and testing procedure to give the best possible conditions for their products. So I trust them them about their opinion for maximum watt processor which should be cooled by this cooler.

    I don’t think that adding a blade master 92 fan on the cooler will help a lot, if it helps at all 🙂

    May I ask what are you trying to do ?

    P.s. We have Noctua NH-L9a review too here: http://dvtests.com/?p=11222

    Indeed the cooler showed some nice results.

    @stuen4y
    Long time ago I thought to make a catalogue for coolers too using the delta temps. But at one moment I abandoned the idea because…
    1. The coolers are with different dimensions, features and structure.
    2. When most of the people see the delta temps they will make their conclusions without paying attention to the details at point 1.
    Anyway at every article i give the ambient temp and if somebody want to do the math and then compare the coolers. I am not doing it cause it is not right to compare for example Reeven Justice with lets say Scythe Ashura or Noctua U14s

    Hello and welcome to DVTests.com,
    First I want to congratulate you for doing tests and I will do my best helping you choosing a testing rig.

    I am not very familiar with intel overclock and reasonable temps and settings but i have some experience with AMD.
    When Fx-8350 is at default frequency with full load it is about 120-130W. When it is at 4.7 gHz with full load it reach up to 220-230w. At this moment all small and average coolers fails. Only the big ones can handle to keep it cool. Check all reviews which i did starting with U14s test using fx-8350. It makes even Aio to have hard time. The water inside the loop gets really hot.

    Hello Radia and welcome to DVTests.com.

    Well here everything depends on the hardware. May I ask you what is the motherboard and the processor inside your system.

    Cooler Master Blizzard T2 offers a purple version of Cooler Master Blade Master 92mm without PWM control method but it can be controled according to Voltage method since there are only 3 cables.

    I can recommend you to go to your BIOS and look where are the options and check what method there is. If it is set to PWM it will be noisy and move it to Voltage.

    Hello Third and welcome to DVTests.com

    About your question I don’t think I should compare both AIO since I never had the chance to test and review any corsair product. Apart from that i don’t know the system setup nor the price range you are interested in.

  25. Reply Dk_vr 08.12.2013 at 16:44

    Indeed the AIO looks nice. For it’s performance we will have to read other reviews

  26. Reply Dk_vr 07.12.2013 at 10:43

    Hello again and sorry for the late reply…
    Let me describe you the situation.

    When i first did the test I connected both the fan and the pump to the 4 pin CPU connector on my motherboard using an Y-splitter. From the BIOS first I set the control method to:

    PWM and the pump was noisy all the time because it was rotating at maximum speed. Only the fan was PWM controlled.
    Later I tried to set it to VOLTAGE method and then the pump became less noisy but was increasing its speed when there was a load on the CPU.

    Both the fan and the pump were controlled according to the CPU sensor.

    Anyway I don’t know what settings your mobo has but you can try connect the fan to the 4 pin PWM CPU header and control it with PWM mode and connect the pump to a case fan header and control it using the Voltage method. But in that case the pump will be controlled by the case sensors and not the CPU sensor.

    Hello and welcome. I am sorry for the late reply…
    Hyper 212 Evo is a wonderful cpu cooler with great perf/noise/price balance. Seidon 120v is great perf/price deal too, unfortunately it is a bit noisy. Anyway I believe both will handle FX6300 but if u OC u will need better cooling performance and will sacrifice the noise.

    @idahludba
    Hello and welcome to you too.
    I hope you read the full article. I explained my experience with the fan and the pump control. Check it again because I have no idea what mobo and bios settings you are using to give you hints.

    About the screws you should remount the Aio cooling block with all screws. One of them missing will reduce the contact pressure with the CPU and will result a higher temps.

    Hello John and welcome to http://www.DVTests.com,
    Thanks for the question, which I believe it is pretty interesting and I hope I will be able to help you with that information.

    So far I already tested few water coolers from different manufacturers, which you can find here http://dvtests.com/?cat=1400 and in all of their installation manuals the AIO were showed to be installed with the tubes on the bottom side. I believe you should follow the official instructions because before every product is released there are a lot of tests to provide the best possible way for a product to be used. Of course all of the manufacturers offers the best way to use a product without the need of RMA so I think you should follow the official information.

    Personally I don’t think that there is a much of a difference but after all I am using the AIOs according to the official manuals because I am using the test samples for a short period of time. In a longer aspect if you install it a in a wrong way it may reduce the life of the water pump, which is just my thoughts.

    Anyway from what you wrote I believe you are afraid not to break the tubes because of the heat from the VGA… I think they are made to handle much higher temperature but this only Cooler Master can confirm.

    Best Regards

    If you ask me the best way to install the fans is to add Jetflo on the front. It’s high airflow level will push a lot of fresh air inside the case and you can put the actual front fan on the bottom or maybe remove it at all.

    Having a bottom fan usually cause more dust inside the case 🙂

    Hello and welcome,
    That is one really interesting comment, which for sure may lead to many answers and possibly many new questions.

    Unfortunately I dont have the first 120M anymore, which I tested before. And for that reason I can’t compare them. I can compare 120V vs Enermax ELC-120TA since both are with slim radiator.

    The first Seidon models are really good cooling units and there is no doubt about it. To be honest 120V is actually the first AIO with slim design, which succeeded to keep the FX-8350 even on 4.7GHz. Yes the temps are high but the system was working.

    About the tubings, probably you are right they are a bit easier to bend but I can’t confirm if they are thinner without cutting them.

    After all this is a budget version so for it’s price it works pretty decent.

    And yes the red button will be very attractive to kids or small hairy animals 😛

    If I remember right he had 33.5 degrees at load with Atlon 2 x4 620 at 2600 and 34 degrees at load and OC frequency of 3600. That is not possible and maybe his thermal sensors are not working properly.

    In fact me and a friend tested the exact same sample on Intel I7-920(1366) and the results were similar or a bit higher.

    I am happy that my review help you with your choice 🙂 and yes for OC Evo is much better.

  51. Reply Dk_vr 13.01.2013 at 9:45

    Hello,
    Thanks for the comment and I will try to explain what I did when I was testing the cooler.
    Actually for this test and review I reinstalled T4 exactly 3 times… Default frequency 2600 idle and OC then overclock frequency 3640 idle and OC. So I mounted the cooler once and did all tests one by one.

    1. I added the thermal compound in the middle of the cpu with size of a bit bigger than a rise. I got a higher results than this and that made me thinking to redo the tests.
    2. I added the thermal compound in the middle of the cpu with size of a pea and still the results were very similar to the first test.
    3. I added 3 lanes of thermal compound on the cpu and used the spatula to cover all CPU and these are the results.

    I was wondering why the cooler cant handle the OC results and there were few ideas that I got.

    1. The mounting clip is not too tight…. I checked the cooler and was placed good. Not rotating or something
    2. I thought that the contact surface may not be perfect so I added some thermal compound on it and pressed ot to a transparent plastic. The marker was good… Still not perfect. Maybe the thermal compound was a bit too thick.

    So I believe that this cooler as a budget version made for users not planning to OC it handle ok. And I think that the heatpipes used in Hyper 212 evo are made of a better quality copper than those used in T4. Of course that is just my thoughts.

  63. Reply Dk_vr 21.05.2012 at 16:34

    @Pepix
    Принципно идеята е, че при този модел идва стандартно с два тънки вентилатора с примерно обща дебелина 20мм, докато само 1 обикновен е 25мм, а пък и втори и става страшно.
    Да действително има разлика в температурите, но е много малка при ниските честоти.
    Иначе старият модел с по-дебелия вентилатор е и с по-голямо ниво на въздушния поток и по-високо статично налягане.

    Здравейте,
    въпросът е много уместен и интересен. За жалост отговорът не може да бъде конкретен, тъй като при провеждането на такива тестове и ревюта, резултатите се влияят от твърде много променливи като: постоянна температура на помещението, моделът процесор, въздушен поток, кутия, поставяне на паста, скоростта на въртене на вентилаторите, че дори и софтуерни, на програмите с които се измерват температурите по време на тестовете.

    В интерес на истината резултатите от руското ревю ги гледах и бях доста озадачен, тъй като температурите на ядрата в айдъл са от порядъка на 12 градуса, което е доста странно, освен ако не прави тестовете в помещение със температура под 0. Разбира се при такава стайна температура ще се получат по-големи и по-бързи промени в температурата на процесора по време на тестовете.

    Конкретно за техните резултати не мога да гарантирам, но за моите мога по всяко време да проведа теста пред камера.

    Освен това, след като се зачетох по ревюто ми направи впечатление това, което звучи не сериозно:
    “В простое показания датчика процессора AMD A8-3850 некорректны, но даже по ним можно судить об эффективности охлаждения.”

    Поздрави и благодаря за интересния въпрос 🙂

    Здрасти, според мен можеш да погледнеш http://dvtests.com/?p=1278. Моделът е значително по-мощен, но пък предлага PWM регулация, като ако се намали напрежението става доста тих. Освен това, ако ти потрябва по-голяма производителност в по-топло време, спокойно можеш да го увеличиш.
    Освен това и цената му е разумна.

    Мога да ти препоръчам и други, но те са или доста скъпи или пък изобщо не се предлагат по магазините в България.

    Разбира се, ако този модел не те удовлетворява, винаги можеш да разгледаш каталога и да си харесаш модел според производителността, като за да определиш какво е нивото на въздушния поток, взимаш измерената от мен стойност в кубични метра за час и делиш на 1.7 за да получиш стойността на въздушния поток в CFM.

    По въпроса за Линкс… Преди изобщо да си помисля да правя каквито и да било тестове пробвах няколко различни софтуера като Линкс, Интел бърн тест и други. Пробвах различни овърклок честоти и мерих времена, точно поради причината за по-ниската температура в началото и края на теста.
    Ако имаш сериозни съмнения относно тестовете и държиш да ти ги докажа, не е проблем да ги проведа отново и да ги заснема с камера.

    Ако пък си и от София, може да си поиграем на живо с охладителя и с трите вентилатора 🙂

    @PepiX – стандартно охладителя се предлага без вентилатор, но пък от Арктик са обявили и Турбо модула, който е специално за този охладител. Вентилатора на турбо модула се върти на около 1000 оборота в минута.
    @Boskorp – всичките тестове се проведоха при затворена кутия с 230мм вентилатор отстрани, вкарващ въздух вътре в кутията.

    Доколкото си спомням, в комплекта са добавени още две пластмасови скоби за вентилатор, освен това и четири гумени уплътнения и винтчета за закрепване на вентилатор към пластмасовите скоби.

    Все пак при този модел се цели мощност и по тази причина дисплеят не е особено важен точно при този модел, но би бил полезен поне да отчита подаваното напражение към вентилаторите. Качеството на изработката е просто перфектно, което на моите снимки не се вижда особено. Да знам, че има още какво да се желае от снимките 🙂

    Ами според мен си е въпрос на избор. Ако има разлика между NH-D14 и Armageddon то ще е много малка, да не кажа никаква. Очаквам Silver Arrowa да покаже сериозни резултати заради перките, но ще видим след време.

    За мен най-добрия вариант за 1156 е Noctua NH-D14 с две P14 Flx, разбира се това е мое мнение и не искам да ангажирам никой с него 🙂

    Интересно математическо уравнение. Бих казал, че засега ще си ползвам Excalibura-а. Единственото обаче което не ми харесва, е че дъното ми пищи при старт на компютъра за процесорен вентилатор въртящ на по-малко от 600 оборота :).

    До края на седмицата смятам да пусна тест с четири различни 120мм вентилатори, като натоварвам процесора и измервам температурите му.
    Софтуера който ще ползвам е IntelBurnTest, Lavalys Everest, като измерванията ще бъдат под idle и след 3 цикъла на burntest-а на максимално натоварване.

    Hello Salvo,

    Actually you might be right and this is normal.
    There are many examples of products, which are designed and manufactured by a company and later sold and labeled with another brand.

    I can’t confirm if this is the case, but they indeed look similar.

    Hello Rodrigo,

    That is one really good comment and thanks for it!

    If I remember right, because 4 years passed since the review was done:

    I reinstalled the cooler several times and that included applying the thermal compound in different ways and different quantity. Also tried different thermal compounds …

    I tried rotating the cooler while the installation was performed and also tried to bend the brackets a bit so they can provide a connection with a bigger pressure between the cooler and the processor. The results were similar.

    After that I gave the cooler to a friend to try with his system and the results were the same. High temperature on all cores.

    Hello Charlie,

    Thank you for this comment. It features some interesting questions!

    Let me see if I can answer to them since I never had the chance to touch this motherboard and it will be a matter of a bit guessing and checking pictures.

    1. Would this cooler be able to fit inside the case? — According to the official details of the case and the cpu cooler – yes this product should fit inside this case. Have you ever thought of Noctua NH-L12, which is also a good choice. Low profile but at the same time pretty good performer: http://www.dvtests.com/%D1%82%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%82-%D0%B8-%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B2%D1%8E-%D0%BD%D0%B0-noctua-nh-l12/

    2. HyperX Fury is with heatspreaders, which are not tall at all. So I believe they will not hit the fan of the cooler. If by any chance they are in contact with the fan, it could be changed easily.

    Best Regards

  151. Reply Dobrin Krastev 18.05.2016 at 10:56

    Hello,

    The fan is with dimensions of 140 x 140 x 38mm (overall) and 120 x 120 x 38mm (mounting frame).
    That means you can install it on a 120 x 120 mm fan slot or cooler compatible with 120mm fans. Keep in mind that the fan slot should’t have anything around the socket since the fan frame is bigger.

  152. Reply Dobrin Krastev 16.05.2016 at 10:41

    Hello Alexander,

    Seidon 120V is presealed AIO, which means the coolant inside shouldn’t be refilled. For that reason it shouldn’t leak or evaporate the liquid inside the loop. Of course this is theoretical and depends if everything is assembled are perfectly.
    Also if by any chance the coolant inside leak or evaporates and over time the AIO stop doing it’s job then you can contact the manufacturer for warranty repairs.

  153. Reply Dobrin Krastev 30.04.2016 at 11:09

    Hello,
    In both ways the fan is installed… On top of the heatsink or beneath the heatsink I would install the fan to blow towards the motherboard.
    Like this the fan will cool the heatsink and will cool the surrounding the socket components.

    Hello and thank you for the good words.
    We are trying to provide the most accurate reviews.

    Hyper T4 is not a bad cooler just its focus is for the mainstream processors.
    Anyway I will definitely recommend to stick with 212EVO since the price difference is small but the performance difference is big.

    Regarding your question I prefer not to recommend since I have no experience with this i5 processor.

    Also did you think of looking for products from another brands? Such as:

    1. Cryorig coolers
    2. Thermalright coolers
    3. Reeven coolers

    We had the chance to test and review some of the models from these brands and all of them are working just fine. Here you can find additional reviews: http://www.dvtests.com/category/tests-and-reviews/cpu-and-vga-coolers/

    Also keep in mind that if the coolers are capable to keep my FX 8350 working at decent temps then they will amazing choice for your CPU also.

    Hello Stefan,

    Thank you for the suggestion. Actually it is a pretty interesting topic, which will be very nice to be discussed.

    According to http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/ the normal noise level for:

    Conversation in restaurant, office, background music, Air conditioning unit at 100 feet. is 60 dBA
    Quiet suburb, conversation at home. Large electrical transformers at 100 feet is 50 dBA
    Library, bird calls (44 dB); lowest limit of urban ambient sound is 40 dBA
    Quiet rural area is 30 dBA
    Whisper, rustling leaves is 20 dBA.

    As you probably know hearing is actually pretty subjective sense and is individual for every person.

    According to NoiseBlocker, BlackSilentFan XK-2 is made to deliver only 19dBA. A noise level, which you are able to hear from 2-3 metres and for me it is quiet.

    In addition:

    Since I made the web page and started testing fans I was thinking hundreds of times how to provide an absolutely quiet sound proof room so I can perform these tests, because it will be totally useless trying to measure fan rated as 19 dBA in a room with ambient noise level of 40 dBA.

    Also I am curious what fan is silent/quiet for you. Could you please tell me brand and model which is absolutely quiet?

    Best Regards

    Before I reply to you and provide you some assistance I would like to advise you to use more appropriate way of communicating. I allowed this comment only because I saw you need help with this cooler.

    I want to ask you several questions because you started criticizing directly the test results.

    1. What is your setup. Please provide me a full details of your system.
    2. What is your ambient temperature. The voltage, which is set to be provided to the processor. What are the fan speeds? What is the thermal compound, which you are using?

    Best Regards

    P.s. If you are willing you can write to me directly an email. You can find it in the about us section.

  159. Reply Dobrin Krastev 17.09.2015 at 7:45

    So let me see if I got you right…

    Your ambient temperature is 40 degrees Celsius..
    Your idle temperature is 40 degrees Celsius..
    Your load temperature is 69 degrees Celsius..

    Well let me share my thoughts.
    1. FX processors are not displaying the idle temperature right. For example my FX 8350 at idle is showing 5-10 degrees Celsius inside a room with ambient temperature 20 degrees. I doubt my CPU is working as air conditioner 🙂
    2. In fact you have ambient temperature of 40 degrees Celsius, you can’t expect lower temperature at idle because the AIO is not air conditioner and to be honest 69 degrees Celsius at full load at ambient temp of 40 degrees is very good result. I believe you should find a way to drop the ambient temperature and then the AIO will drop the processor temp too..
    3. Of course if you have any doubts in this cooler, you can always look for another model but keep in mind that with 40 degrees ambient temperature you shouldn’t expect much 🙂

    P.s. Mate how you live in 40 degrees ambient temperature? 🙂

  160. Reply Dobrin Krastev 02.09.2015 at 9:17

    Well to be honest they are kinda right…
    If you check the graph you will notice that something like an airplane is let’s say 120dB and a normal conversation is like 60dB but in real life the sound of an airplane is like 10 times or even more louder.
    This is because overall the sound is not a vector quantity. It is a scalar quantity.

    For this setup I would recommend Cooler Master Excalibur but this model is EOL for a long time.

    Well this is is very, very good information.
    Something that I didn’t think of so far.
    Indeed this is very interesting.

    I believe the right information is actually the one on the label on the back of the fan but still I think that 4.2W is few for this overall performance.

    Anyway in both cases if only 1 fan is attached to the CPU fan header it will definitely handle the fan.

  164. Reply Dk_vr 03.06.2015 at 8:04

    Well somehow I agree with you.
    It is strange why these models are not yet released.

    Hello mate,
    I am sorry for the late reply but I’ve been extreme busy these days.

    This is interesting situation and could be cause by several different things:

    1. The ambient temperature in the room increased.
    2. It is possible the thermal compound is more dry and should be replaced.
    3. Your motherboard started delivering higher voltage to the processor.
    4. The contact between the processor and the AIO waterblock is lose.
    5. You need to clean the case from dust. That includes the fans and the AIO radiator.

    Check these and I believe the situation will get better.

  166. Reply Dk_vr 06.05.2015 at 21:17

    The mounting kit is just massive and very rigid. I am impressed of the overall build quality.
    And yes the fans could be a littler bit more powerful even a bit more loud.

    I can say this is one, if not the cheapest twin tower cooler, which I saw so far.

    Hello and thanks for the comment.
    Actually nothing changed regarding the tests and results.
    SS AP141 is a fan made to provide airflow but in another way. The fan is made to deliver steady airflow to a bigger distance. For example if you install the Noctua fans on the front side of your case they will provide fresh air but will not provide direct cooling for the video cards, while AP141 will deliver the air directly to the fan of the VGA.

  172. Reply Dk_vr 03.02.2015 at 11:40

    Thank you for the good words…
    According to what I saw on the web, the price for this product is surprisingly low.

    Through my tests I was not able to hear the pump at all in fact both of the fans were working at about 2300 rpm.
    After the tests when I set the fans at silent mode it was absolute quiet but a little bit too sensitive. Every temperature spike was making the fans to make rpm spikes too.

    With silent mode it was fine but with performance mode the fans are constantly increasing and dropping the speed. And after some time it might become a little bit annoying for normal home user. For the extreme users this is a song for the ears.

  173. Reply Dk_vr 03.02.2015 at 11:36

    Thanks for the good words.
    Yes it is a bit strange why the additional heatsinks are hiding the thickness of the radiator itself but from what I saw even with this radiator the AIO is very good performer.
    Yes it is a bit noisy at full fan speed but it provide a lot of possibilities for quiet and extreme cooling.

  174. Reply Dk_vr 13.01.2015 at 11:54

    I am glad that I was able to assist you with this issue.
    As a motherboard for your processor I can recommend Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 for normal daily usage and some average overclock.
    For extreme overclocking you will need motherboard like Asus Sabertooth with much better VRM cooling.
    And at 30~35ºC ambient temperature overclocking will be a little bit tricky and hard to do.
