I will be very interested to find out the difference in thermals with another fan ! I am running a 3900x with the sape cooler, but I swapped it out with a black noctua 100mm/14. Didn’t improve thermals that much, but it is much more Quiet (and looks better IMO). I was debating on installing a 120, but heard of folks saying the 120 performed worse due to having a bigger center dead zone, and not as good of a seal.Joining the bandwagon! Thanks to @riba2233 for accommodating my request! Now if I can find who has the other panda!
I had wanted to run a 3080 with the EKWB Classic waterblock and build an "AIO" for the GPU using a 120mm radiator and an Eisbar LT dangling around as my pump.
Based from my measurement I should be able to fit a 120 rad and the EKWB Classic waterblock with a reference 3080 but not luck finding a 3080 with a fair price.
Current issue now is my 3600 seems to be running hot even with the AXP100. I easily hit 75C on Prime95 with 4.2Ghz all core @ 1.175v
Looking to replace the fan with a fan adapter and mounting either a Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 or Thermalright TY-14013R
Now if only I had my case I could turn the components on my desk into a working system, but since I ordered on jan 22 I’m probably getting one of the last ones To be shipped
