PC fans help
United Kingdom clannad_2002 
My pc has got quite loud so I am thinking of replacing the stock case fans and the stock cpu cooler. I think my pc deserves an upgrade because I haven't changed anything since 2017. Are noctua fans still good? I'm looking at getting two of "Noctua NF-A14" and a coolermaster master cooler ml240l v2. Been out of the pc scene for a while, would really appreciate any feedback. Mainly looking for fans that are quiet since thermal performance has never really been an issue and I don't cook the comp much at all.

noctua fans are still top tier, they're just ugly af Edit: i would also recommend you go for an air cooler for cpu, the cheaper AIOs may leak, or clog up.

The noctua fans are good, cheap price and really good quality. They also sell CPU Coolers. It will certainly be an improvement with the Noctua Fans and the CoolerMaster AiO. I don't think you can go wrong with those options, have fun!

thanks for the input bro :) They aren't cheap though, 20-30e per fan is pretty expensive In my opinion

It depends on how you look at it, especially since here in my country those are like really good cheap fans lmao. But still, I can recommend them! Hopefully you'll be satisfied with whatever you end up getting C:

i5 3570k @ 4.2 ghz, cooler master cpu fan, and 0 case fans, don't be stupid, case fans is a hoax, they just lying to use your money for own business, open pc case, and ventilates itself, gtx 1060 has it's own good fan, and whole PC never heats up, if you raise VGA fan when gaming, easy. Also less fan speed - less noise, let's use logic

I don't want to open my pc up because my room has a lot of dust. I vacuum twice a week and it still isn't completely clean. My pc is also in a pretty low airflow spot and I really don't want to move it. Do you have any pics of your temps when under load?

i vacuum once in 6 months, still no dust, just brush off dust off VGA and PSU with any cloth, and blow dust with your breath off the CPU fan, done, never overheatted , my cpu 2012, vga 2016, case from hell knows 2013-14 soemthing, no fans extra. gtx 1060 under load + 60 % vga fan ~ 44-51 degrees in csgo, 57-69 ~ in other games, quake live 36-41. In desktop - 27 degrees at lowest fan speed. CPU always standard fan speed: 39-45 .C in desktop applications, 57-59 .C in mirror's edge, metro last light, etc alien: isolation, etc, never bothered me, never overheatted, PC never shut off

I did clean it but the noise comes from the fans themselves. I guess I also want to upgrade something tbh

yeah its nice to buy somethng from time to time, the noctuas are whisper quiet, and they dont really look ugly to me, also like 6 year warranty i think so you can get new ones if they make noise in 2027 lol

Those CM AIOs seem to be hit or miss. I have a 240mm AIO that cost just 75€ in 2018. It has held up well, runs cool (i5-8600K overclocked @5Ghz) no problems. The radiator fans have leaked some lubricant but its more of a mess than an actual hazard (it's sticky). If you just want cooling performance go air cooler (noctua/hyper 212 etc.), but the AIO looks nice and it's easy to install. There should be no need to replace case fans unless they are broken, they barely make any noise (GPU/CPU fans make much more).

just make sure u got the 4 pin fans to control the speed of the fans and noctua air cooler are the best
