Re: I5-2500k OC Fan
I've been looking through some more forums and I've come up with some ups and downs to water-cooling and air-cooling. Remember, these are just my thoughts, don't start getting angry if you disagree
It is (usually) the best form of cooling
It doesn't take up nearly as much room as a fan does
They are easy to install/fit (sometimes)
It needs to be custom made to produce the best results
It is more expensive than its air-cooling equivalent.
It can be really noisy
It is much cheaper than WCing
Good quality fans are quiet
They are much more common, and thus you have more choice
Most (good) fans are massive
They're usually not as good as custom WC
The greater choice makes it harder to choose a good fan
To conclude, WCing is great, if you are willing to either make it yourself, or spending an awful lot of money. Air cooling however is a lot cheaper and still gives reasonable cooling. As I'm still new to building I think I'll just stick to fans, but WC is a possibilty for the future.
