My original build lasted with no problems for about 8 months. But then Battlefield 4 came out. It sounded like my CPU fan was working a little harder. After a couple days, this issue started to annoy me. My usually silent system was no longer as silent as I remember.
I ended up buying the CoolerMaster Seidon 120XL. I liked the larger radiator on this as opposed to most others. This one features a 1.5" thick radiator with fans in a push-pull configuration to facilitate heat dissipation. After a little bit of use, I did find the fans that it came with a little too noisy for my tastes. So I went ahead and ordered 2 Fractal Design Silent Series R2 fans since I loved them from the beginning if my build.
I'm ready to overclock if need be, but my system still works above and beyond for me.
