Btw the fans that come with the ProSiphon, are the Arctic P12 fans; the P12 PWM PST CO variant to be exact. Even the stickers on the fans look the same, it just says Ice Giant instead of Arctic and it's blue instead of white

WhyTF is that loop so expensive?? The Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240 is the best performing 240 AIO on the market and you could literally buy 6 of them for the price of this loop.

so there's no point getting it for low to mid chips and if you're running a high I should just get a water cooling system? deciding between a d15 or ice giant
Trucker Jack
Trucker Jack Vor 4 Tage
They're both great coolers. One would argue due to the larger cold plate of the ice giant, it could transfer heat more effectively vs the D15. Unless you're pushing some serious temps the cheaper of the two would be the D15. If you want something "New" that's already proving itself, go Icegiant. But you'll pay a large premium.. then there's the colors if that bothers you. Also, the D15 is probably better with acoustics over the IG. I have IG and the NH-U12A. I love both of them.

Cool, I was going to ask that you do a review of the release version of this. However, we still need to see comparative benchmarking on high-end AM4; you've covered Threadripper, which most people will not have, and high-end Intel desktop CPUs, which are losing market share to to 3950X, 3900X, etc. Those seem like the sweet spot for this: gamers will overclock them, and they're common, and they don't have a central hot spot like Intel chips, and not all of us want water in our systems (or, as in my instance, have cases not suited for AIOs due to the mounting positions available and their vertical relation to the CPU, but large enough for an Ice Giant).

Check our there website then compare it to your case clearance. Off the top of my head I think it's 48mm for ram, 164mm for length "measured from mobo to it's tip" and 251mm wide. Basically about as long as a 2 slot 2080ti. My gigabyte specifically almost comes flush with it on the right side.

How about using Noctua NF-A12 fans with this? Any improvements? How does the noise levels compare?
mehutolkki3232 Vor 12 Tage
@Trucker Jack yeah thanks! I am curious mostly because I am quite the opposite and pc being quiet is very important to me
Trucker Jack
Trucker Jack Vor 12 Tage
@mehutolkki3232 I'll try that and let you know. For now temps are amazing and I never really considered lowering the fan curves as noise has never been an issue for me. I am aware that running full tilt doesn't always help. So I'll give it a go.
mehutolkki3232 Vor 12 Tage
@Trucker Jack how about if you run them at 1000-1500rpm with your current setup? How much does it affect the temps?
Trucker Jack
Trucker Jack Vor 12 Tage
@mehutolkki3232 I just set them to performance and let them do their business. I did take the stock fans and place two under my gpu. I run those maxed out at 2500rpm.
mehutolkki3232 Vor 15 Tage
@Trucker Jack what rpm are you maxing them on? The color is fine with me, I "wear" noctua fans with pride even if the color doesn't suit most of the people. To me its kind of a symbol of showing quality. Like some sports car that is known to be a legend but doesn't look that great or something. Hard to explain. Besides unless you plan on using a windowed sidepanel you don't see them anyway.
funmovieproduction Vor 21 Tag
8:55 The fans of the cooler are rebranded Arctic P12 or P14. Awesome fans for around 7€ per piece. Optimum tech made a review of them here: depost.info/one/video/gaub2ImBd7GBy3k.html

Got the Icegiant Elite off Ebay for about $20 more than MSRP for my 3970x build because i was impatient and didn't want to wait weeks/months getting it. :) (Also got the NH-U14S TR4 Just in case) Was originally going to do an AIO water cooler for the CPU, but had to scrap that idea when i got a deal on a Hybrid AIO RTX since my case can only fit one 360 Radiator and the GPU won out.

I should have my system done by the end of the year I'm using regular stuff you can buy I'm going to have a dishwasher pump and a copper radiator out the top and air intakes will be HEPA filtered for added quietness and unrestricted water flow that's why you're blowing so many water pumps restricting the water flow so much heat rises out the top anyway so I should be getting good numbers when I'm done with my system that I invented back in 1990 you guys are moving way too much air and restricting your water flow way too much

I'm noticing the height clearance between the noctuas and see that the Ice Giants are a couple of cms shorter. question is, how small of a case can this fit in and how tight would it be inside an itx motherboard?

Linus often says air coolers are better than those AIO water coolers, but the thing is that if you go with an AIO water cooler you don't have to worry so much about whether it blocks your RAM, video card, etc... which seems like a real problem for some of these bulky air coolers.

Any idea whether this would be legit viable on an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core Processor? It's around 100 watts, and AMD suggests liquid cooling. I've seen a few people on amazon saying they're going this route, but it's not a threadripper, so I can't tell if I'm overpaying for something I don't fully need with this.
Rahq Vuth
Rahq Vuth Vor 25 Tage
@Randal Lombardo You should just need to enable PBO and maybe some sight voltage adjustments plus memory (unless you have a reason for an all core OC). There's also the Curve Optimizer that is in beta which can tweak performance. This should work well for any Ryzen because of their chiplet design in general.
Randal Lombardo
Randal Lombardo Vor 25 Tage
​ @Rahq Vuth Everything else for my build but the graphics card arrived, so I picked up a $70 liquid cooler as an interim device. I spoke to Ice Giant on twitter and they replied very quickly, said it would pair excellently with the 3950, especially if I overclock. So I guess I'm gonna learn how to overclock, assuming the thermosiphon ever makes it through Shipageddon.

So to summorise: Ice giant Elite is almost the same as much more expensive custom water coolling. Ice giant Elite is also worse than Nh.d15 air cooler in normal consumer CPU's. So we can say that for normal consumer CPU's Nh-d15 AIR cooler is BETTER that custom water cooling. And it is much cheaper.

I just ordered one of these coolers for my 3970X. The Gigabyte Aorus 280 AOI cooler I've been using is terrible for this CPU, despite being on AMD's list of approved coolers. It looks cool, but idle temps are atrocious at 55-60C and it's always running the fans at high RPM, so I'm hoping the ProSiphon is much quieter than the AOI (hopefully these new fans help) and it seems like it should result in a MUCH cooler CPU.
