When I built my PC in early 2015, I got a solid deal on a Thermaltake NIC C5 Air cooler. It has worked well enough. Does a solid job with cooling, however, it is one noisy cooler. I am very particular about noise. I prefer my system to be as quiet as possible. I have been looking into getting a better cooler anyway for temps, but now noise. Here is my question:
I want a cooler that is at least better then my Thermaltake, but I want it to be as quiet as possible. To beat my cooler, it isn’t that difficult. I’ve looked at the Noctua NH15s ( I believe that was the model at least. ) I have also looked at some AIO water coolers, Particularly one from Be Quiet! If noise is important, would you go Air or AIO? And which cooler?
