Any bigger cooler would perform better than the stock Wraith, either IAO or heavy air cooler.
The Wraith is already good for what a stock cooler can offer.
Check also your case airflow, try to have a intake/exhaust fan.
Maybe try to set the fan curve steps for different case usage.
-From 30° to 50° idle, low load = from 500rpm to 1200rmp
-From 50° to 60° medium load = from 1200rpm to 1800rpm
-Above 60° heavy load = from 1800rpm to max
I mean try to set the curve looking at the t° of you cpu depending the usage, at idle and low load, the cpu would hover around 40/50°.
When you load the cpu with a game, task the fan goes up to the max, tho it have not to be the max if not needed.
It depend on how much fan rpm the cooler need to keep the cpu under 65° full load.
The lower this value is, the quieter the fan curve will be.
This worked well but I set the final curve to Above 70. That’s going to be the best acoustic performance I am going to get without investing in a better cooler, which will probably be my next experiment.
Thanks for your help.
dude - if you really want a quiet PC invest 600-1000 bucks in a custom waterloop
min 600er radiator push (360er in front - with min 1.5x airflow of combined top and back fans && 240er in top)
or get an aircooler like Noctua NH-D15 or Thermalright SilverArrow-Extreme - but than your GPU will still do some noise!
