I have the noctua nh-d15 se am4 cooler for my ryzen 7 1700 and a asus prime x370 pro mb.

I upgraded from the ryzen 1600 to the 7 1700 and i think it can do 4.0 ghz BUT at just under 1.400 volt my cpu cooler with the ryzen 1600
start to get noisy and temps get to high for my taste 1.36250volt and llc 3 is fine for me with my ryzen 1600

Currently llc 3 or 4 , 1.3250volt and 3.9ghz is okay (not 100% stabel at 3.900ghz,fluctuation a little bit, not much though)

If i want something cooler and equally as quiet as my notua (silent freak, hate aio pump coil whine) what would you recommend?

One problems i have with my asus prime x370 pro mb is that it starts at 75c with fans on 100% (no way to change that), i don't like that and don't want to use other fanspeed software since it's so easy to adjust fans speed and hit save in the bios, speedfan you have to do sooo much nerdy advanced things to get better control over the fans,cpu cooler, it's fare from making a fan curve hit save and that's it

Thermalright, Scythe, Cryotech, Xigmatek, Thermaltake, Cooler master, look up reviews, or switch out fans for glidestrwams or get a AIO.

As far as I know, there is no better air cooler than the D15. You might find a degree here, or a dB there, but there's nothing that is a real increase from the D15. :oops:You might want to take a look at the https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/CRYORIG/R1_Ultimate/ review and see how the D15 stacks up against the other high end CPU coolers in that review.:oops:
Your best bet is water cooling with a variable speed D5 pump, lots of radiator surface area, and low speed fans.

Also, make sure your case is well ventilated.

tbh the noctua D15 you already have is probably the best option for you, quiet and pretty close to AIO/WC levels of performance. At 4.0ghz/1.4v that cpu is going to be outputting about 140w at full load, no matter what cooling solution you go with there's going to be some noticable fan noise at full load. :ohwell:

Maybe a PWM controlled D5 pump and lots of radiator area so fan speed can be kept low.. Edit- blue beat me to the suggestion lol. :lovetpu:

No,yes mabye in normal aplicationtions but at 1.3250 volt and 3.9ghz it uses according to Hwmonitor in ibt high-maximum,prime small fft up to about 165 watt that's worst case senario at that voltage and ghz

I don't hate any particular pump, just those that are noise,high pitched

I don't have any magic ryzen 7 1700 or some fantastic mb where i can tweak it to something like 1.300 volt and 4ghz

if the D15 aint doing it for You, you need more cooling power, which is gonna be one of those pumps you so hate
I do get above 70c with ibt and that often makes the fans spin to max rpm for a few sec and then goes down.

Not shure what max temps are (throttle) mabye it's 75, theres luckily no temp offset with a ryzen 7 1700, what i see is what the temps are. Im trying with my asus gtx 1070 strix to get 4k gaming pc score both in time spy and firstrike (standard) im very close to my gpu's limited

Time spy 1.0

Fire strike 1.1

30% is where i feel my cpu cooler is very silent, not just under avarage or okay silent, 60% is just under 1000rpm

As many have said, you have one of the top air coolers available on the planet today.

As a side note, you are complaining about noise found while stress testing on synthetic applications. When it comes time to use it daily or game on it, the noise will be much less, as things like IBT put a load on the CPU which is much more than what you will see day to day. Unless you built the PC just to run stress testing, I feel you are overthinking things a bit much.

Moving to an AIO.... Will cost you more than the D15 did to get better performance, and you will only gain 1-3 degrees advantage. Custom water cooling will cost 3-4 times what the D15 did, and if you are really lucky, you will see 5-10 advantage under synthetic tests. When it comes to daily usage, you will find the difference between AIOs and custom loops gets closer.

I say stick with what you got for a bit, and after you are certain the OC is stable with synthetic testing, see if the noise is still bothering you then ;)

Another point, you show the 1700 is inside of the Fractal Designs chassis, and you are hearing the D15 with the side panels on the chassis?

70-75 is fine for IBT, and if you think your D15 is loud at max. fan speed then oh boy, you DO NOT wanna hear AIO coolers in synthetic stress tests.

I do want to run my cpu at 4ghz since i noticed a bit low fps compared to my 4ghz ryzen 1600

What are your thoughts on these aio's
Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 240 Fractal Design Celsius S24 EVGA CLC 240 Corsair Hydro Series H110i Corsair Hydro Series H115i (atm cheaper than the Corsair Hydro Series H110i) Liquid Freezer 240 (4 fans)

70-75 is fine for IBT, and if you think your D15 is loud at max. fan speed then oh boy, you DO NOT wanna hear AIO coolers in synthetic stress tests.
I have 2 x140mm NF-A14PWM fans in the front of my define r5 i can use for an aio

I know most stock aio are noisy at max rpm (fans) but not all fans have to run at max rpm to keep it cool

You would need a 360mm AIO to do better than the D15. Also a ton more noise to get those results.

I have the H110iGTX ,it's quiet and very good @ cooling ,but I don't know what kind of temperatures your CPU brings compared to mine ,which is a 4790. I can run prime 95 for 20+ minutes and if I see 55°C it would be higher than what ive seen. But again I think my cooler is more meant for bigger CPUs as it's 2011 compatible, and the 4790 doesn't generate much heat in those respects.

If I were you, I would stick with that D15, it's a beast ,and about as good as it's going to get (within a couple degrees ) short of liquid nitrogen I don't think you're going to find a cooler that doesn't make noise while running intel burn test ,or any other synthetic program meant to maximize cpu strain

Your CPU delivers roughly half the wattage to the cooler as his does. I would hazard to guess, he would see the same temperatures he is seeing now. If not worse.

Agreed!

With what they want I'd go a step further with a good DDC pump and the rest for a custom loop along with quiet fans.

Ibt, prime 95 might be giving more voltage but i do think a pc has to be able to pass ibt,prime95, beacuse it's a harder test than most test's and if it can't you might risk the pc freezing, crashing when you max out your pc.

Nobody said not to stress test the OC for stability. What I was getting at is wait until you are satisfied with stability, then use the PC and see if the noise and temps are still concerning you ;)

Im not close to 1.40 volt in the bios but it goes up til 1.45 volt or a bit more accord to cpu-z (might not be as accurate as hwmonitor) and that is close to my limited when i want my cpu to be silent and temps low in everyday usage

Nobody said not to stress test the OC for stability. What I was getting at is wait until you are satisfied with stability, then use the PC and see if the noise and temps are still concerning you ;)
At 4ghz i don't want temps so high that it's noisy and of course not to hot, it's not just okay when noise and temps are low at low cpu usage

A few days ago i actually had my ryzen 1600 4ghz at 100% usage just multitasking with malwarebytes and kaspersky scanning in the background.

As have said by the others D15 you have is already the top air cooler in the market right now going with an equivalent Cryrorig R1 or Phanteks TC14PE would not be much of an improvement you can get maybe 1C or 2C if you are lucky. I am using the D15S btw.

My suggestion is to add another fan to your D15 again at best another 1C or 2C improvement.

It looks like your Ryzen 1700 is a good batch, I got to pump voltage of at least 1.35V to get it stable at 3.7GHz for my Ryzen 1700. I have doubt you can get stable at 4GHz for your chip as Ryzen would hit "voltage" wall at point and it looks like 3.9GHz might be your point since you said it is not exactly stable. You need at least 1.5V on that chip if you lucky to get stable at 4GHz all cores. It is not worth it in my opinion to have voltage past 1.4V.

Custom loop is the only real performance bettering option out there. Even then you have to go quite large to beat a D15 in noise and performance.

Thermalright, Let Grande Macho CPU cooler is incredible. I use it for 3.82Ghz at 1.4v. runs prime and stabilises at a shade under 70 degrees. And it's very quiet.

But it won't do 4Ghz. Not on my chip.

I'm afraid air might not get you where you want to be. All depends on your silicon.

There is a massive heat spike from 3.9-4Ghz on Ryzen 8 cores. It was evident in the early days when folk bought into it. 3.8-3.9 is very likely for all 8 cores for most people but the drop off going to 4Ghz (on air especially) is huge. I can do 3.9 but I need 1.45v and although only prime (and others stress tests) push the temps, I'd rather not run at that voltage.

For reference;
