    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Temp Average

    Select the Custom Curve on the left so it is highlighted orange and then click on the fan 1 and 2 in the right hand pane and that will set it to the curve.

    Does pump speed matter?

    Installed my GPU BitsPower Water Block today. Coolant went up to 27.1C, CPU to 73.1C and GPU to 43.6C when running TimeSpy. Not to bad since the GPU used to hit 70Cish running it before. Coolant raised almost 3C during the run at the BitsPower gauge. I have my pump/fans set to a gaming...

    Does pump speed matter?

    I tried this one since it seems to be more designed for the AMD chips and the location of the chiplets, the intake is right where the two chiplets are. It is doing better than my Corsair block did by a 3-4 degrees peak temp

    5800x and Asus Fmax Enhancer. Higher clockspeed but lower scores!?

    Yes temps never go above 73 in the current setup but I can get them lower by lowering the EDC a hair and pretty much scoring the same for the comparison. But the loop keeps it cool so for normal operation and gaming. I am going to try to lower that cpu current to maybe 110 or 120 and see what...

    Does pump speed matter?

    I had a Corsair Hydro X pump. But was concerned about flow given it’s lower specs on head pressure and flow rate for what I wanted to do. So I upgraded to the EKWB KE Quantum Kinetic TBE 200 D5 pump. I like the look of it better and even hooked it to my Corsair pump/fan and RGB setup to control...

    Does pump speed matter?

    Understood. I just wanted to make sure the numbers were what others may see and I see two people on here seem to get the same numbers. I really like it for the looks and the ability to easily see what the coolant temp is. I can see my coolant is flowing in the reservoir so I know it is pumping.

    5800x and Asus Fmax Enhancer. Higher clockspeed but lower scores!?

    Oh with no Curve and even just PBO enabled my chip performs no where near what any tester has ever stated, except maybe in single core scores with a very specific setup. Not stock, not PBO enabled, not with board at max power settings and not with LLC in any of its settings. I currently run...

    5800x and Asus Fmax Enhancer. Higher clockspeed but lower scores!?

    My performance drops if I change LLC from auto to 2 or 3, or any setting really as I tried them all. But I am using Curve Optimizer so that may be why. That gives me the best multi core performance which is what I want. Just because it peaks at 5.1Ghz on two cores does not mean it can hold it...

    Does pump speed matter?

    Temps are great. Does not break the 70 C mark unless I am doing something like running benchmarks. Coolant sticks around 22-23C all day long. Although I have not added my 2080 Super to the loop yet and that is just the 5900X running pretty much unleashed at I have the EDC limit set to 200A...

    Does pump speed matter?

    TechN waterblock. At full speed I get a flow rate of 3.0-3.1L/min.

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    I just redid my system in a new case, the Corsair 5000X RGB. I finally found a water block for my video card and it is on its way, MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Super Ventus XC OC.

    Does pump speed matter?

    My temp sensor on my flow port is about 1C higher than the flow meter. I just figure since the sensor is right on the pump that maybe the pump body is causing slight temp increase, my flow meter is after the coolant has passed through one of my 360 rads and on its way to the CPU block.

    Does pump speed matter?

    I have the same flow meter and it has confused me with the flow readings. They are roughly 10% of what they should be using a D5 pump. My EK pump at 3800RPM reads a flow rate of 2.0 L/min when it should be 20 L/min with no restrictions. I have only 2 rads and a CPU block so I would think it...

    5800x and Asus Fmax Enhancer. Higher clockspeed but lower scores!?

    Maybe it is just the dual CCD units but when I enable FMax enhancer it cripples what my second CCD, peak drops by several hundred MHz from 4.6-4.7 to 4.4-4.5. It does nothing for my single core peaks which are 5.1Ghz on two cored on my 5900X. Power on mine is no where near crippled as my...

    Are there any air flow cases with support of 280mm radiators on top?

    The Corsair 5000 series cases have more room up top for rads. I am thinking of adding a 240 or 280 up top to go with my 2 360's I have in my case. I could fit another 360 up there but I like the configuration of the front rad with the ports at the top instead of bottom so the 360 will not fit...
