I checked out those cases Fractal Meshify 2xl looks dope! But it's not available in white, I assume.
I believe they make white only on the standard Meshify 2, white the XL is black with dark tinted tempered glass for a stealthy look. But they do look good and are massive, pics can be deceiving so check out the dimensions.

Cooler Master cases are nice, but call me nuts, it's just that I don't like their logo!
Fair enough, you're going to see that everyday if you keep the PC on the desk! Only logo that I really dislike is Armageddon, have a major aversion to yellow anyway.

Yes, I know what you mean, the minimalistic aesthetics of NZXT cases would appear bland to someone who is not into that.
Don't get me wrong, I do like minimalist (ish) designs like the InWin 90x series, CM SL600M, BeQuiet Dark Base 700 etc., just NZXT cases and standard Fractal Design Define series is not really my thing.

Having said that  My Ryzen 3600 hit 85 to 87 degrees under load when I m gaming. I guess it's too high right?So maybe I should get an aftermarket cooler.
3600 gets the Wraith Stealth as the cooler got downgraded after the first generation. Wraith Spire cooler from the R5 1600 did a much better job of keeping things under control.
Your temps are pretty much in line with what many of us have had with the 3600 + Stealth in local ambient temperatures. I used the same combo from 2019 to Aug and didn't have any issues with throttling. That CPU dissipates around 70-75W max when gaming and ~85W when doing heavy multi-threaded work at stock settings, so not a challenge to cool unlike Intel CPUs. Any decent air cooler like a Hyper 212X should be fine.

I was looking mainly at NZXT kraken M22 cooler which goes to 16k, but online reviews are not so promising for that cooler.
Unless you're space constrained, I'd stay away from a 120mm cooler. Makes sense for ITX builds though. They have roughly ~130-150W heat dissipation capacity which is more than enough for a 3600, but you're spending almost 3x of a standard aftermarket air cooler for something that might not be usable in case you decide to upgrade later.
A 240mm has around ~200-230W capacity, which is enough for most CPUs. A 280/360mm has around 250-280W for mainstream units.

Of course, custom designs/powerful fans can increase the rating over ODM figures given above so AIOs like BeQuiet Silent Loop, Enermax LIQTECH will be rated much higher. And manufacturers like putting bigger numbers on the box anyway (except NZXT, Corsair as they don't even publish TDP ratings).

I got my hands on the NZXT H510. Thermals are good. i idle 44-49 for cpu and gpu and when I am gaming both does less than 65 degrees celcius. IF you are really worried about thermals. add more fans and you will be fine

That's good to know! Thanks for responding.

You can't find Noctua coolers here right? But I still prefer getting a liquid cooler, if I can stretch my budget, just for the aesthetics.

You can and it has no risk of leakage etc + guaranteed compatibility with future platforms. But yeah it won't have any RGB and what not.

I'm just trying to find some more buyers so that the shipping cost can be combined xD

i got the case and got it assembled! It's literally the prettiest thing I have seen after I saw Kate Winslet nude in Titanic when I was in grade 5 😍

On a more serious note, gpu temperatures are fine and hitting 70 degrees under full load. Got a liquid cooler installed for the cpu. So the max it reaches is 60 degrees when gaming.

Case as in H510 or the 710?  What's the cooler? 

KW in grade 5 = same age as me I think xD

H710i! And NZXT kraken XG 53, which is a bit of an overkill for my processor, but it just looks pretty!!!

Post some pics!

I was also thinking of getting either the NZXT X53, or the Corsair H110i or H115i... Having a hard time convincing myself that the stock cooler is enough :|

Doesn't the Wraith Stealth go above 80C with our ambient temps?

Yup, definitely a polar opposite of me :D

Understandable, most people actually use their PCs for work and play while I spend a better part of my time tweaking, benchmarking and researching :D Got 30+ games installed, haven't played any in a month.

Try Aida64 FPU test or Prime95 Small FFT.

Though these are pretty heavy benchmarks and produce more heat than many normal  workloads, lot of apps and games are starting to rely on AVX/AVX2 instructions (like CP2077 at launch) and those are definitely going to stress the CPU more than older software. Wraith Stealth could barely keep the stock 3600 under 90C in Kandy, doubt the 5600X with its even higher heat density would fare any better, unless AMD has tweaked voltages a bit more.

Yeah, 3600 hit 90degrees sometimes when gaming.

@madness get an NZXT cooler. It looks great also. I can't upload photos into comments. Is there a way to do it?

@BlueHaze - Maybe you should game and consider that particular game as a source for benchmarking performance.


Thanks BlueHaze and everyone for for their help and comments!

Maybe we can keep the thread open. It might help anyone who wants to know about temps and cases.

Yes upload to https://imgur.com/ and then paste that share links between the [img] tags or just directly copy the BBcode I think it was (anything that has the IMG tags on them)

Keen on looking at them as well. I plan on getting a NZXT case next week  :yes:

See, whether the links can be accessed? It looks better than in photos though. I am not a big fan of RGB implementation of my graphics card though.
