    Is water cooling worth it?

    Quick question to my PC gurus.
    Is water cooling worth? If you don't intend on Overclocking and you have enough fans, is it worth getting in the long or short run ? or at that point is it for looks only ?

    Id say it just depends on what you're doing and what your temps currently run at. If your PC runs cool I don't see any need in the added money for water cooler. I have high grade internal fans as well as case fans, and my pc runs as cool if not colder than my friends with water cooling. Just depends on what you're doing/going for.

    take air cooling without overclocking.

    Perhaps you want overclocking the Noctua NH D15 tower cooler would be also more then ok...

    I use this tower for oc my i7 5820k and work very nice

    If you're overclocking or running a processor known for high as fuck temps even on stock like the 9900k, then do watercooling. Otherwise an air cooler like the DH15 mentioned above or the Dark Rock Pro 4 will be enough, and if your case has good airflow, then even better. Also, you probably know this already but if you go for an air cooler make sure it fits inside your case so it doesn't block one the ram slots.

    Depends on your specs and your use of the PC. Gaming at 4k at ultra settings? Yeah, I would definitely recommend it.
