A little noisy

Yesterday install a Panaflo 120mmx38mm HighSpeed BX. At 41.5 dBa and 103 cfm I considerate it a little noisy.

Today install a Delta 92mmx38mm TFB0912 UHE UltraHighSpaeed. At 62dBa and 142cfm . Now the Panaflo doesn't bother me at all cause I can't hear it. Is like playing with a vacuum cleaner beside you.

Waiting for the fan controller to arrive to decide if I keep it or not. It blows like a hurricane thou.

Edit:Two hours of 2 instances of F@H and defragmenting with perfect disk, CPU @ 2.91; Vcore 1.42

CPU--> 53C MB--> 44C

Right now is 95F. I have to shut it down, to much noise. Seriously thinking on water. Is a matter of $$$. Sugestions are welcome. Try not to go over $200. Got a credit of about $120.00 in Overcool.com, much better if the system comes from them.

Man that Delta fan is a Beast.

You would be surprised what you can throw together for cheap...

My first WC setup was all on the cheap. Made a block from a copper cap. Used a heater core for a radiator. Picked up a cheap pump from a hobby store. I don't think I have 60 bucks into it. It still performed much better than air and was super quiet.

You can pick up cheap components online if you look around...

Well I'm not too mechanically inclined, but will check around.

Is this list correct?
pump
radiator
cpu block
lines
Seems to me that something is missing.

It just makes it easier to get the air out. I run one because I like the way it looks....

only an 80mm rad, you'll want at least a single 120mm rad if not a double or even tripple rad. The bigger the rad the cooler you can run your water (closer to ambient) for less noise by using bigger fans rotating slower.

I use a single 120mm rad with a variable speed 120mm fan and a double 120mm rad with a pair of fixed low speed 120mm fans. I think i spent about £70 on the full kit (thermaltake bigwater 740)

Are you wanting an all in one unit?

I have not read great reviews for the 80 mm bay units. A great air cooler will do as well.

Hit some classifieds and look for some used items. A single 1200 mm rad, a block, and pump will probably be had for cheap.
