I use the Cryorig XT140 right now and while I haven't used any other options I am on my third iteration of the XT140. I had a variety of issues from the fan clicking to it making a distinct chopping sound, despite there being no wires in contact. Overclockers were great with returns though, pretty much just asked a few details then sent out a new one once mine was returned. When the PC is running full tilt the only fans I can hear are the CPU and the GPU fan. It's possible that the XT140 gets louder at increased temperatures, but I can't hear it over my GTX 970.Since intake fans are the current topic. I haven't seen many LZ7 builds with a slim 120 Noctua fan and I was planning on going that route, what are people's experience with that over the other 140 slim fan options?
That and I noticed a definite increase in temperatures when the fan was not in use, both at idle and under load.
