Okay so, with the following PC configuration:

  • Corsair Obsidian 900D
  • ASUS ROG Maximus IX Formula
  • Intel Core i7-7700K
  • ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX-GTX1080-8G-GAMING 8GB GDDR5X (90YV09M1-M0NM00)
  • 4 Sticks of RAM

I came up with the following three stages of cooling:

SILENT COOLINGhttps://www.ekwb.com/custom-loop-configurator/shared/oW5a02772ca5049 – 82*F Liquid Temp with 30.8 dB sound

SILENT OVERCLOCKING – https://www.ekwb.com/custom-loop-configurator/shared/oW5a027c183827f – 81*F Liquid Temp with 45.5 dB Sound

OVERCLOCKING – https://www.ekwb.com/custom-loop-configurator/shared/oW5a027bcade2e0 – 81*F Liquid Temp with 53.2dB Sound

I actually very seriously think with the options available I’d be okay with just the silent cooling.
