    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...

    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.

    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...
