" ...  I almost went with the NZXT Kraken x72 but did some homework comparing the 2 and there isn't really a difference performance wise, less than a degree in difference plus the Kraken x72 is like $25 more so I recommend the Corsair H150i Pro over anything out right now.  ...  "

" ...  There is a lot more noise coming from the pump than the H100i v2, but I assume this is because the pump is more capable. ... At lower settings (performance, balanced, and quiet) they are whisper quiet.  ...  "
comment
" ...  H60 (2018 model) - surprisingly quiet pump and stock fan isn’t too bad. ... The stock fans are remarkably quiet (coming from a Noctua fanboy, that’s a huge compliment) and they are actually worth using. ... Also, this is not a noise dampened “quiet” case, and I honestly can’t hear this cooler anymore than I could my Noctua, in all honesty it might actually be quieter than the Noctua was.  ...  "
