Question again, this time regarding coolers.

i will be getting a 3950x when it drops next decade. I was looking into air cooling and have settled on three choices. The noctua c14s, and the noctua U9s. Is there a vast difference in performance between these two models??

I think this thread is more focused on the Cerberus cases, and things that fit in it, i.e size and compatibility etc.
I don't think it is for telling the performance differences for cooling between two air cooler. However, maybe someone might answer. Unless you're asking in terms of how well it'd work with the case.

Other than that, I'm sure there are some reviews online. :) Hopefully someone will answer the question here though.

But here is a link to a thread on SFF Network site. And you might find it well. It is about Noctua C14 vs U9 and BeQuiet DarkRock TF: Noctua NH-C14 vs Noctua U9S vs be quiet Dark Rock TF

I hope this finds you well.

If you want you can also visit the SFF Network Discord server. People there are very nice and knowledgable enough to help.

sorry yes should have clarified . I was wanting to see if anyone had experience in this case of these coolers specifically in the Cerberus x case . on the sliger website I don’t remember seeing the U9s and it seems specs wise it should fit.

C14S! Will want a rear 92mm exhaust fan and a top 120mm exhaust fan as well. But that should be able to handle the 3950X.

Worst case, liquid cooling!

I own both coolers.
Go direct to c14s with dual fans. Better raw cooling and better suited to Cerberus-x.

Check my build (latest page with ryzen 7 3800x)..:)

Lol i did exactly the contrary : intake on rear 92mm and top 120mm, exhaust on c14s...leading to best GPU temperature..:)
