Been saving up for a while now I can't wait lol I just ordered the i9 yesterday but I keep changing the storage can't figure out what I want the list currently has a samsung 512gb m.2 ssd a regular Samsung 2tb ssd and 4tb HDD I think what it is now is what I'll do the thanks for the replyA bit overkill for your first gaming PC but if you've got the cash spare; why not?
Personally I would save the money on the water cooling and go with probably the GOAT "212 EVO" air cooler
I've been using a 212 Evo for the past 5 years, should I switch to water cooling? Would I get any cpu improvement?The 212 was never considered a great cooler. The Cryorig m9 demolished it at a lower price. And the Cryorig H7 was considered the greatest CPU cooler for years to buy at only 35 usd.
Now Cryorig coolers have gotten more expensive but the m9a plus still is cheaper than the 212 (and the newer 212 with LED is worse than the old 212)
I agree air coolers are better for most users though.
Prefix is correct, stay with it as I did the same thing with adding a second fan ages ago and it works perfectly with keeping the CPU cool. With water cooling you really won't have much improvement if any vs the 212 EVO or similarly adequate coolers.I've been using a 212 Evo for the past 5 years, should I switch to water cooling?
