Will you be getting any other types of CPU Air Coolers in to choose from anytime soon as I am not keen on water cooling and the air coolers are not very nice to look at, think when I ordered mine you had the Titan Fenrir Evo (Black and Gold colour) that looks really nice through the case window, anyway only asking as I am looking at purchasing a new system very soon.

Yeah they are good but I just don't trust having the water cooling with my luck :surrender:

Most companies have a warranty for the water coolers and if it breaks other stuff in your pc they will replace it up until a certain value. Each company is different with this though so best to read into it

Had new PC now for 3 weeks and working well with Noctua NH-D15S cooler. 6700K at 4GHz at 100% load runs at 62deg. 6700K at 4.6Ghz at 100% load runs at 74deg. In normal operation PC nice and quiet at about 30dB at 1metre with COOLERMASTER HAF 912 Plus case

Lets hope none of Pcspecialists Skylake air cooled systems are effected by the ongoing bent and broken processor reports emerging around the net. So far only one manufacturer has given a fix (so I read). They are suggesting that Air coolers be shipped unmounted with skylake systems, which could be why Intel does not include a cooler boxed with skylake CPU's perhaps?

Some articles here if interested:

New system turned up today (unfortunately not for myself :( ) and that is Skylake with the nice big Noctua air cooler on it and that has arrived in perfect condition but that is possibly down to the expanding foam bag PCS put in the case before shipping, holds everything in place nicely.
