FWIW, a good tower cooler like the Hyper 212 [amazon.com] or Noctua NH-U12S [amazon.com] is usually a better option than cheap AIO coolers, if your case can accommodate them.

Coolers this small are useless outside of a tiny case build. Any $40 air cooler is a better buy.

This. For $60 you can get this scythe cooler. It cools my 3800x and is extremely quiet. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0...asin_title

Not true, if you don't overclock and want a quiet rig, this fits the bill. I used one of these for a couple of years and it kept me at ~35C on idle and under 60C on full load. (i9 9900)

Its not an overclockers cooler for sure, but to passive aggressively say it sucks isn't quite fair.

I believe it is true for my case. I tried two different liquid coolers. But the result was not as much as I expected. Also, the fan noise didn't go away due to the exhaust fan was still required.

I went back to a tower cooler and I am satisfied with it.

Are any of these coolers compatible with Alienware Aurora R8, which has a vacuum cleaner like noise coming from the default cpu cooler?

Yeah, this thing is ugly. I would only put it in a secondary machine.

I don't think they are being passive aggressive. Most testing show that the air coolers they are recommending are quieter because they run at lower fan speeds, no pump noise, and have more heat capacity because the fin stacks are physically larger. Corsair used to have a single 120mm model that had a decently thick radiator that could compete but this specific model has a very thin radiator with very little heat capacity. This model would actually be very useful in a NAS type case where most of the chassis space is taken up by hard drives and the drives have their own fans for cooling.

Good info. Thanks peeps! I would have thought this would be better than a tower cooler. Guess I'll stick with my CM Evo, which allows for an intake and exhaust fan on the massive heat sink. Still, solid deal. Thanks and rep to OP!

I've been hearing the Scythe is the way to go. Do you happen to know if it's a substantial upgrade over a 212 Hyper Evo? I can't find a good comparison online.

Thanks

I have the scythe cooler also and it's been quiet and cool. If you have an existing fan that runs cool and quiet it would probably not be cost effective.

The 240mm variant of the Lite is $55, no rebate required.

https://www.newegg.com/cooler-mas...6835103252

If you have the space for it, I'd recommend this instead.

Installed a BeQuiet! Dark Rock Slim to cool my 3600. Stock fan showed temps around 60C at idle. After swapping in the Slim, temps dropped to ~40C idle. Added a second SilentWings 3 fan and temps went down to ~36C idle. It's also extremely silent.

I'd also considered the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240 based on it's thermal performance from reviewers like Gamers Nexus.

Ultimately I decided low noise, good temps, long term stability (could be a problem with AIO), plus lower cost were my priorities.

I was really tempted to take advantage of the aRGB pin on my motherboard to add some bling but there's always the option of adding an LED strip down the road.

All that said, this isn't especially good pricing unless you really want LED. The Arctic Liquid Freezer II 120 [amazon.com] sells for $78 bucks right now and the thermal performance will be superior if you're not after LED.
