New Computer for Sister
« on: December 22, 2016, 11:39:14 pm »
This is a computer for my sister. Need to make a decision today, what I need help with is getting a CPU Cooler for this. No noise, strong and durable like the Noctus.

RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3071452
Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3071452 (both ram and mobo are a deal together, I get 32 USD off on both)
PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026
Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811353062
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=2MN-0004-00002
CD/DVD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA8R64C14171
GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500411 (quiet performance, better than MSI/EVGA)
SSD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820721107

So just need a nice quiet and durable fan. Any recommendations?

stock HSF is just fine for the i3-6100, if you truly need to swap the cooler then go with NH-L9i and flip the fan to push-up.
as for case fans, you only need two fans, one front intake and one rear exhaust, adding more would just increase noise and mess up the airflow.
the fans i recommend are Antec TwoCool 140 (intake) + NF-S12A FLX (exhaust) or Corsair's ML120 Pro (exhaust).


also thats a poor choice of SSD, Kingston's V300 is very old and performs like a thumbdrive, i don't even know why they still sell that piece of ancient junk.
better yet grab this one while it has a 50% off promo. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820249035

Honestly. you could most likely get by without any case fans with the specs given. At most a single case fan would move enough air to keep it cool enough. I would keep the stock cooler for the I3 you should not notice it.

Is an i3 good enough to play skyrium at 60 FPS? I mean given that it has a high clock rate and 4 threads (except that it is only 2 cores). Let me know.

I wanted only a CPU fan because I want to minimize the noise level or have absolutely no noise.

Thanks for the SSD recommendation, going for it. I went with the Kingston because it was cheap. Samsung EVO 850 is ... not cheap :(

Be quiet! (They are a german company) are top of line and go head to head with noctua coolers and look quite sexy with thier all black design . But for i3 stoxk is more than enough.

head to head being more expensive for less quality due to the looks.

Fucking right. Your opinion has so much quality ... oh wait, what did you recommend again?

Ha. :P I think I'll stick to the stock cooler and see if it's quiet or silent. I also pulled out a 2.5" HDD WD Blue 1TB from the laptop I have with me, which I switched the storage inside of it to a Samsung Pro SSD (250g or 500g, don't remember).

I'd recommend any noctua over a be quiet cooler (caring about looks OVER performance is pretty dumb)

noctua tend to be cheaper by $10-20 for a 2-3C improvement.

however going anything but stock with an i3 is pretty dumb

Noctua is actually great, having a cool looking case is also great. Telling your opinion and calling people dumb is fucking dumb - strictly speaking, quit being negative.

You've been reported. Your comments across some posts, not just this thread, are negative, name calling, and arrogant. You've broken several rules as it is for being disrespectful as well.

Can someone please take action against him?

@Tatsujin
Yes, I have. See my post before yours?
Now I'm back, I'm forever watching everybody.
Just to point out, your post isn't contributing to the conversation either. If you're unhappy in my moderation style, feel free to PM me about it.

@Msiku
Less of the name-calling, mmk? Having to tick, "closed" in the moderation centre and make a post is a hassle. Banning is even more work because I have to fill in forms and shit - I hate doing that. Be nice and then you don't get reported and I don't have to do shit. It's win-win.
As above, if you have a problem with my moderation style, PM me to discuss it.

Now I don't expect any further off topic chat in this thread, mmk? Thanks.
