I am currently building a quiet i7-5820k/Silencio 652s based workstation but am undecided about the cooling solution. Normally I would just bang a big Hyper 612 v2 or similar in there as the quietest solution. However I want this box to be smallish, quiet and movable, and a big air cooler can damage the motherboard when moved. So looking at all in one water cooling - the Neptune's seem to be the best quiet/budget solution - so: 1. Neptune 120XL or 240M - Which would be quieter in the Silencio 652s case? Would the 120XL have to work hard and therefore be noisy? The 240M would be top mounted and therefore "directed" at me sitting right next to it. Would this make it noisier? Overall it's a quieter solution I'm after rather than an overclocking one - the machine is for work at home not play. 2. Motherboard Gigabyte X99-UD4 vs Asus X99-S - which handle variable voltage on the water block better? Dual Windows/Hackintosh build so gigabyte card easier - but.. Asus has fanexpert so automatic variable voltage to the water block is possible to keep it quieter. Anyone got experience with variable voltage on the water block with these manufacturers? Any and all thought welcome - I'd rather get it right as I won't be buying another home workstation for years!
