    10980XE - equivalent to SoC Voltage? (Not stable with 128G)

    I have a 9980XE and x299 based rig. I can assure you, the 9980XE/10980XE are absolute MONSTERS to try and cool. You could be suffering from throttling and not even know it. The clocks will report as being stable, but in actuality, internally, it is throttling. There was an article on [H] about...

    QuickCPU Power saving - My settings (Relevant for 6xxx/7xxx/8xxx/9xxx/10xxx processors)

    Good to know I'm not alone. I scoured and did real heavy research on it, but there's nothing definitive out there on how to combat it, other than to run a manual voltage at all times. I'm cool with QuickCPU not giving me the ability to control voltage, but I saw a slider which said something to...

    QuickCPU Power saving - My settings (Relevant for 6xxx/7xxx/8xxx/9xxx/10xxx processors)

    The question I have about this QuickCPU program is whether or not it will give me the ability to control minimum CPU clock speeds (and thereby minimum voltages). The reason why I ask this is because I have the opposite problem of most. My CPU on auto voltage and using the FIVR can remain super...

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    I'm using about 40 feet total (20 feet each going to and return) of the Mayhems Ultra Clear Tubing. This one to be exact. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01546EMOY Whoa, I've never seen/heard of this! Better than distilled water? Need any extra protectant like biocide?

    Yeah, I definitely don't have anything loose. Everything is super tight, triple/quadruple checked. I'm chalking it up to the fact that I'm running super hot components (literally), 2 reservoirs, and meters of clear tubing.

    Really nice. I'm loving my MO-RA 3 420 build as well. Question: how much water do you lose? I'm running clear tubing, and I have zero leaks...but my setup drinks water. I have to keep topping it off, probably once a month. I do use my rig like insane though. I'm going to change to black tubing...

    Awesome, can't wait to see it! These MORAs are incredible when it comes to heat dissipation. You definitely made the right choice.

    Very very nice! I'm running a MORA 3 as well, so I can attest to the fact that it's a beast! Here's my setup. https://hardforum.com/threads/my-first-watercooled-build-9980xe-rtx-2080ti-etc.1987324/#post-1044355754

    Ekwb Nickel Plated 2080ti Block After 3 Months Of Use With EK Clear Cryofuel.

    I have an MSI RTX 2080Ti that has a EKWB block preinstalled....and I'm seeing the same thing as the pic in the OP. The block hasn't failed though, nor has performance diminished in any way. I am NOT mixing metals. That being said, I AM using just distilled water as my coolant, plus drops of...

    x299 not stable using manual voltage

    Yeah, I've settled on 4.4. Completely stable. Looks like I did it right. Oh, and between now and then, I've also gotten the VRMs under water. It gets no hotter than 66C at full AVX 512 load.

    x299 not stable using manual voltage

    Unfortunately, I've found that auto will never work. Although I've stabilized it to hell and back on auto voltage, a new problem cropped up: Instability at idle. This includes using any combination of Adaptive and/or Offset. This to me is worse because it's not something I can control. Even...

    My first watercooled build: 9980XE, RTX 2080Ti, etc.

    Thanks! And so far, it's performed like a mad scientist project. Keeps the beast ultra cool. In between then and now, I've gotten the VRMs under water as well. Idle for all components is ambient room temp. Full load doesn't exceed 50C on all components, ever, unless I do a load like OCCT or Prime95.

    x299 not stable using manual voltage

    Just as a preface, I'm a quite experienced OC'er...but a relative n00b to Skylake-X OCing. I know that the x299 platform and Skylake X is a beast to try to OC. Between the extreme multitude of voltages, multipliers, AVX, etc., it can be quite daunting in trying to attain a stable OC. Currently...

    Yep, forgot to add that. Any "U" shaped bend or anything odd will require some gymnastics for sure.

    Pure physics. You don't have to do anything but open the port. If the drain port is indeed at the lowest point of the entire loop, physics takes care of everything. You open the drain port, the water gets replaced with air and completely drains from the loop. No need to run it. Of you course, it...
