Background: So this is a project log/ build page for my recent (budget Ryzen) upgrade, I had focused on adding some cooling components to eliminate noise previously and intend to keep that going, it's quite nice having not having fans whiring in the background when concentrating on doing coursework, editing photos or gaming. Hopefully if anyone is interested in using some of the components that I have used it will provide some insight into how they perform. The specs of my previous PC were: Intel i5 4590s (65w TDP) 8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3 MSI 2GB 750ti originally (60w TDP), upgraded to XFX 4GB RX-570 a few months ago (120w TDP). Asus H81M-K motherboard BeQuiet System Power 8 450w PSU Bitfenix Nova Case (black, side window). Photo: I started with making the GPU passive as the 750ti had a single fan cooler and was far from quiet. As it is only powered through the PCIe slot I used an Arctic Accelero S3. The backplate to cool the VRM's did not fit with this motherboard so I made do with VRM heatsinks and thermal tape. Then I found a suitable cooler big enough to passively cool the CPU, a Raijintek Ereboss core edition, which looks great in black. Temperature wise using System Stability Test for the CPU it reported 84c under load, I managed to bring that down by adding a 140mm BeQuiet Silent Wings as an intake to 67c under load (33c idle). The GPU was stress tested using furmark and was also 67c under load (37c idle). Wanting to keep this going with a recent upgrade I made a point to keep an eye on the TDP of the components knowing that this set up works. Graphics card: I started with the Graphics card, choosing to replace the 750ti with an RX-570. Knowing that the Accelero S3 would not cool well enough for the higher TDP through some research I chose the Raijintek Morpheus II core edition as a replacement cooler. Bonus - it comes in a matching black to the CPU cooler. I stress tested this with Furmark but found random crashes were occuring after replacing the cooler that did not happen previously. I added a 120mm Apache Black PWM fan with Noctua low noise adapter which stopped these. I'm unsure what the temperatures were as I cannot find screenshots or notes from then. With the added fan the GPU was at 81c after a benchmark and 89c under load for a longer period of time. I usually play CS:GO and the temps are in the lower 80's. Photo of the cooler and fan: I would like to replace this fan with a BeQuiet silent wings 3 PWM or similar Noctua, as they are quieter fans and would eliminate the need to add in the LNA. The installation of this was quite straight forward, a bit of planning is needed to see what heatsinks can be used on the VRMs without getting in the way of the heatpipes. Several different sizes were provided and the tape has held them on well. Being aluminium they are not heavy so I shouldn't expect them to dislodge anytime soon. There are clips to support 2x120mm fans (13/25mm thickness).
