Hi Guys,

I currently have a Kraken X62 on the cpu and a Evga AIO Hybrid on the gpu. As you can imagine both AIO pumps make a little bit of noise and have radiators all over the place.

So I am trying to make my build neater and at the same time see if I can make it even more quieter. (also note the cpu & gpu ran both at stock speed).

So for the pump I am a bit scared that the D5 or DDC will be louder than the AIO, so I was thinking about getting the SPC from ekwb.

So for me the best "value for money" would be to go with a EKWB Slim 360 and get a EVGA Hydro block for the gpu, but this is where I get more confused. Will the 360 with 12cm fans be as quiet as a 280 with 14cm fans? Will the SPC handle a gpu block with ease?

While I am at it, should I go hard tubing? How difficult is it?

I am afraid going custom loop is going to open a can of worms and burn a deep hole in my pocket. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::cry::cry::sick:

What do you guys thing is the best route to build a quiet pc?

If you want a quiet PC, drop the voltage and use quieter components such as maglev fans.

Google reviews for an AIO with the quietest pump and replace your chassis with something that resembles the inside of a sound studio.

Most chassis go for cheap side panels to cut the price down but a few come lined to cut out noise.
