    My 12900K reaches 85°C during rendering at 22°C ambient temp.

    i need to get the nerve up to pull the CPU and put that hard mount... and check to see if the CPU is convex but i hate pulling stuff apart like that. i have it and some good TIM. cranking down the waterblock helped a bit. also i tested with wPrime and it only hits 70c at full load where...

    RTX 4090 on my system: Possible?

    friend just put a 3070 in system close to yours... CPU holds it back BADLY to the point where its only getting maybe 70% the FPS it could. and even settings that should work dont. if you have money for a 4090 your better getting a new CPU , ram , board and 3070 or 3080 for the same money and...

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    PC wont BOOT with RTX 3080ti and HDMI to TV

    you ideally want it off. booting will be faster and windows needs it off for UEFI mode and its needed for reiszeble BAR

    Upgrading from 9700K to 12600K/12700K worth it?

    i went from 9700k to 12900k and it 100% worth it and this CPU should only get better as thing are able to use more cores. most games still dont use more then 4 or 6 threads right now.

    My 12900K reaches 85°C during rendering at 22°C ambient temp.

    the ASUS one come with all the mounting hardware needed for 12th gen? might have to do the same thing right now im seeing idle temps ins the mid to high 20's but i get peaks to 80 in few things that hit all cores. and again 90ish in stuff like cina bench. and it does feel like contact issue...

    How bad did I lose the Silicon Lotto?

    normal game temps are fine but any thing hits the CPU hard , Prime, encoding, cinabench CPU spikes to over 90c and sits there. also some other stuff i have would cause spikes to 80 for for few sec. CPU seems to stay cool for the most part but it can make a lot of heat faster then cooler can do...
