It's not obvious at first sight...but I was tricked 2 years ago with R7 1700X (vs R7 1800X)...I never reached stable & reasonible 4.0Ghz OC with my R7 1700X.That´s a very nice setup! My 3700x is not stable at 4.3 even with ridiculous vcore, so it could be true that 3800x are better at overclocking
Sure, with my 240mm customed watercooling loop, I experienced better CPU temperature on load (around 5-7°C better), but worse GPU temperature & noise (around 7-10°C) as it received exhaust air from cpu radiator.Great overclock numbers, I bet you could improve them with better cooling. That 3800X is simply too much for the poor NH-C14S
Indeed your corsair H100i pro is a bit overkill for R7 3700X..Ill keep an eye on your tests, I have a NH-C14S lying somewhere from my previous build. Maybe is time to give it a chance
Thanks for feedback.Nice results Marc.
Can confirm better gpu temps with C14s vs Aio in Cerberus X for me as well. Losing the rad makes for better air flow for sure.
I went to the C14s this weekend and noise temps are plenty good enough on the 3900x. No OC so far.
Cpu set to intake with CerbX vented panel.
I’ll have to post some results/pics in my thread but currently seeing 60s on cpu and mid 70s on gpu gaming for hours at 1440p. Been back on No Mans Sky since the Beyond update. Really like it.
Thanks for sharing your experience.Clipped to heatsink. Side bracket removed from the Cerberus. Haven’t tried exhaust but the fan flip will be very easy to do.
Lots of room to work using this cooler.
Edit: on mobile so pic may be wonky. Box vs Cerberus shot included for Lols.
Ahh, I forgot you have a Cerberus X, so likely a different motherboard and more room than I do. I have an Asrock m-itx in a Cerberus and have not much room above the C14SYes I still have a NF a12x15 mounted on top bracket (made for handle).
Distance edge to edge between NH-C14S heatsink and NF-A12x15 is 2,5cm.
