    Those temps are very low. Use the software to slow the fans down. Yes, your temps will go up (some) but it's no big deal.
    When it comes to cooling, it's all about surface area, and the amount of air moving across it. Since that cooler doesn't have much surface area, it has to move a lot of air across it and hence the high and therefore noisy fan speeds. I would not recommend a slim 120 mm AIO for a processor over 100 watts, especially when noise is considered.

    This model that I have is the Performer version and it doesn't have the software support.

    I think I am going to pick up another Cougar fan and mount it on the radiator.

    Only kits with a USB connection on the head units offer software for control.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    A big thanks going out to Tt Enthusiasts, Great job man :toast:

    I was going to say, suraswami if you couldn't get it replaced to ship it to me and I would fix the hole for you. Just would have to add a port to the loop to fill some how.

    Lets see how it goes. TT rep hasn't instructed me what to do with the old one.

    Replaced the TT jet turbine engines with Cougar fans, its absolutely silent. The temps on core max is 42C after one hour of playing BF4, Video card dropped 2C from 71C.

    With air cooling (and probably not good air flow), the CPU core temps sometimes go up to 52C. so far so good. Will do more testing and post results.

    Its been hot last few days, played BF4 for few hours, Core temps are 47C max. I guess this is good improvement.
