Great cooler for the price, but can get pretty loud.

Anyone know of any Aura Sync RGB fans that will work on this that have similar static pressure?

Agreed. Made terrible whiny sound after a month.

I downloaded my motherboard manufacturer's controller software (Gigabyte) and found adjusting the settings for type of performance negated it for the most part.

When playing games at ultra-high (4.1 ghz ryzen 2700x), the fans start screaming - which maybe is to be expected.

This thing gets so loud. I also own a Corsair H100i and it is barely audible compared to this thing. It's a combination of the fans and the pump just being incredibly loud. Luckily, I mostly use the PC for VR gaming, so I don't really have to deal with the sound. This is also on a "quiet" fan profile. On normal or max performance, it sounds like a box fan with a weird rattle (pump).

Also, the RGB is not fully functional with Gigabyte's system. It for some reason cannot display anything red (including shades of red), even though the other RGB stuff hooked up to the board can without any issues.

Edit: That being said, it does keep my Ryzen 2700 @4.2 Ghz at a decent temperature.

Deepcool makes a good cheap Aura RGB fan set

What voltages/temps are you Ryzen owners getting at 4.0+ speeds? I'm guessing 1.4v/60C territory? I'm hesitant on pushing my Ryzen 7 1700 past 1.35v as I'd like mine to last for more than a couple of years.

With 3.9ghz/1.344v/stock RAM/max fans in push/pull, I'm getting 26C-48C (prime95 small FFTs) with this cooler in ambient AC temps.

At max fans, it sounds like a box fan on low-med setting which doesn't bother me since I'm used to sleeping with one in the past. I currently run it on standard speed profile and I haven't noticed any pump noise during my regular use in standard or max speed. I've used it for about a week and it's been pretty damn good value for the money so far.

The tubes are so ugly. Makes it look like something I'd buy from Dollartree. Also a loud liquid cooler? Defeats the purpose.

While I agree the loud isn't desirable, I don't think it actually defeats the purpose. The main point of liquid cooling is to gain a greater drop in temperature than can be achieved by a standard heatsink+fan setup. Not to be silent

I added two additional fans on my 280 version and it stays nice and quiet that way. Is it just fan noise on this model that is loud? I imagine they use the same pump.

My normal setting is 4.15 gHz @ 1.32 V, 45c idle/web browsing (silent). Ram OCed 2933 with tight timings. My board, which I think limits my OC despite bios update, was a "free" one (ax370) from November 2017 newegg deal (mb + case + psu for $80).

Wow, that's pretty low voltage. What are using to test stability?

I currently have my RAM OC'd to 3200mhz/1.35v, stable with prime95. The RAM wasn't stable before even at stock CPU clock/voltage and RAM 3200/1.375v but now it is stable even with the CPU OC. Weird but whatever.

CINEBENCH for initial stability, then prime95 small FFT for 10 min (since I don't expect to do number-crunching for extended periods of time).

2700x are supposed to cap @ 4.3 GHz and 1700(non-x) @ 3.9-4.0 GHz so I think you are fine. I rather have slightly above minimal voltage for heat concerns than maximal computing power.

Im using a 2700 and while it will OC further, I keep mine at 4.0 @ 1.2875v Very cool and quiet with a nice overclock on low voltage. I found pushing it to 4.2-4.3 Ghz wasnt worth the extra noise and heat (esp now in summer months).
