    Doyll>It funny you should mention Thermalright. I remember years ago I was a user of their coolers. And at that time most of this forum mostly had Thermal True coolers. But I don't know why it happened or how but I have never considered Thermalright in this day in age or since I had one. When I had one the performance at the time was one of the best options at the time. So me and a few friend when we were all building our systems at the same time all got one I am pretty sure it was for the Q9450 era.

    All I can remember besides how good the performance cooler wise for that chip at the time was the mounting system was frustating as hell. Once you got it locked down though it was rock solid and trying to attach fans via the supplied fan clips needed the manual dexterity of a master thief. I have no doubt since then they have refined it and simplified it yet since then I have never considered Thermalright as an alternative.

    In fact at least from my perspective have hardly ever seen them in builds or mentioned. Granted I only visit this forum and one other but when I look at completed builds for ideas about most of them seem to be either Noctuas or Aios. I rarely see Thermalright in people builds. Why is this? Great products but lack of marketing? If the Thermalrights are more visually appealing and just as good performance if not better why are they not as common as noctuas based setups. I do not believe for one second somebody would pick a Noctua setup over a Thermalright setup based on looks alone.

    I've posted up a pic of my thermalright cooler. More to show off the narrow clearance than the build. £45 for near d15 performance with a very quiet fan. Sounds good to me.

    Indeed, Thermalright was one of the top selling cooler companies on the market for many years, but they depended on word of mouth and having the best quality and performance instead of mass marketing like other companies use and lost market share. They are still popular in the far east and many parts of Europe, but not so much here.

    Questions:


    1. Why is Corsair AiO so expensive ?

    2. Difference between Fractal Design Kelvin vs S24 is what ? The only difference I saw is pipes and fittings, is that all ?

    3. How many liters per hour does S24 have ? I saw somewhere that S36 have 40l/h, so does S24 have like 20 or something like that, and is that OK for 6700K, and some OC now and then ?

    4. What do you say about Alphacool Eisbaer LT240 it's a pretty nice AiO water cooling, anyone test it ? It has 70l/h flow rate, but only one or somewhere two year warranty, that's not much...

    Thanks for the quote. But are you talking about AIOs that are not CLCs, CLCs or are you mixing the CLC sub-group of AIOs and call them all AIO CLC?

    There are 2 distinct kinds of AIOs, the ones that are CLCs and the ones that are not CLCs. To me AIOs are a different group from CLCs.

    Fractal Design Celcius is and AIO that is not a CLC, but it is no longer being made and I haven't seen one being sold anywhere for some time.

    It was made by Alphacool.

    Fractal Design Kelvin is a CLC and is still being sold, but I wouldn't get one.

    So AiO you suggest me to buy be quiet ? Isn't that alphacool just rebranded ? And they also don't show how much flow rate they have.

    While both are made by same company the be quiet! pump has some differences. Not sure how much those differences end up making, but little things that are visible like no swivel fittings being better than swivel fittings that can end up leaking is a good reason too.
    I also prefer be quiet! with it's long history of great products and great customer support.

    Ok, thats all good to know. But what about flow rate you think it's the same as on alphacool or ?

    Yes, I think flow rate is the same .. so should flow about 72 liter per hour. Not a lot of flow but significantly more than most CLCs do.

    Thats the main reason why I got interested in Be Quiet.

    OT:
    I didn't have a chance to explore their water coolers but I had in my hands Silent Base 600 it's really dope.
