I wasn't aware that these were bad, reviewers on youtube don't talk about how crap the AIO was when they reviewed this case and i never really looked into AIO as i have always used custom loops since 2007 ( Q6600 CPU) Dual D5s, and quality blocks from aquacomputer, xspc.
When i started...
I've also found that i get better results with cheaper cool master thermal paste that came with kit then Noctua NT-H1. Thermal paste from coolmaster is easier spread, noctua is thicker consistency and didnt work for me as good.
Here is my little beast. Overkill for browsing Web looking at charts and YouTube?
Heres is my new Timespy score.
Here is the parts list etc, since this post below ive rerouted some of the cables for even cleaner look.
my overwatch game keeps crashing. I think could be memory related as it seems to last little longer when default speeds are set.
I noticed there's 17c deference between Dimm 0 and Dimm 2 anyone know if this is normal.
I have fan thats blowing over ram, so not sure whats going on.
Im rookie when it comes to memory overclocking, just looking into expanding my knowledge a little.
I got G.Skill 6000 CL36 1.3v memory. Ive played around with latency and it doesn't like it at all, best ive managed to do is increase from 6000 to 6200 with bump of 1.43v to keep it stable...
Just installed the washers. Two of Torx screws were hand loose on the motherboard !
Installed 4x M4 Nylon washers that was 1mm high. These are the results below, Washer mod i got ATH Cinebench scrore. Seems like Pcores are cooler and Ecores run hotter 2c, maybe they were actually doing...
Sanded down with 240 grit you can see how it was uneven one side.
Onto 2000 Grit, massive difference.
It's like a morrow now, you can see where I circled there was still little dip but ihs is far from here and it. Didn't want to loose more copper.
I might bolt it up and see temps before doing...
I'm going to have a rant now. This Cool master AIO is absolute piece of shit.
Surface of the block has ridges in it, you can feel that one side is higher.
What a piece of crap. I feel like I need some 6000 grit paper.
Not sure if this is normal for AIO. My previous pc was on water and...
Arh Asus.... Can't do the washer mod. Looks like I need to go buy Torx bit.. All my tools packed since I moved house. :(
Anyways here's few pics of thermal paste on second application.
I think my first application X method was better tbh.
Yes it does have LGA1700 backplate, everything else is the same screws.
LGA Backplate looks of much lesser quality, cheaper plastic as opposed to the other one.
Just Finished Cinebench.
Before voltage offset 21610 and with - 0.110v offset I got 22332
Morning all, I thx for your input.
Sorry should have mentioned it, as soon as I started seeing thermal issues I tried to torque up the screws.
They were tight, I redone them even more so and it did make 1-2c difference on E cores, those were cool 88c but rest of the P cores no change...
Update - Issue was with cool master 280mm AIOthat comes with NR200P Max case. The waterblock was not flat and had ridges in it. I sanded this down with 240 grit paper, then 2000 Grit.
While at it I also added M4 Nylon Washers to the ILM, raising it by 1mm. CPU now runs 30c cooler in games and...
Hey guys, just doing my new build 12700k, with NR200 Max this comes with supplied cool master AIO with LGA 1700 Backplate for CPU.
When I screw in supplied stand-off through the back of the motherboard into the Backplate it is still very loose? This can't be normal?? I've never had that with...
What a beast ! 9 years... of crunching 4600mhz all day long. I've done test to see how the old trusty CPU goes with 3080 Ti.
To make the 336mm 3080ti fit i had to remove custom cooling loop and bought Noctua D15, i am amazed that is a brilliant cooler.
I've got comparison below, 4770k @...
I just ventured into the audiophile world this year, recently sold headphones and went into proper 2 channel system.
I used Asus Xonar Essence One, external sound card with audio technica AD900 headphones for many years. Worked well, i then upgraded to RME ADI 2 Dac, and that was a massive...
Nvidia shafted me by releasing 780 ti short time after i bought 780. Since then i have just waited for Ti models.
Feel sorry for people with 3080.
Instead 3080 ti it will be team red for me. It has been far too long and some of my hard earned cash might be good for their rnd.
Ill just leave this picture here. Ive had Zero issues since purchase date.
GPU has long gone out of the loop, but rest is still used. I've back flushed radiators and changed coolant once 5 years ago. (y)
Actually i shop at PLE as im in WA, only time i go PCCG if i cant find in WA. Its stupid that we still have to pay shipping for item that weights 20g and costs 700$.
What is a good place to get memory outside AU? Amazon? I've read all bad stuff about newegg for us aussies.
Thanks for the heads up.
I might get two dual kits of Trident, seems like bit better than corsair for little more. Yikes 700$ au for 3600mhz 😐
Ill see how i go, ill wait for 6900xt or AIB 6800xt if i can pick one of those up ill commit to rest of ryzen build.
Ah got it, thanks!
Its been years since i have overclocked and ive kind of lost intrest. Its just not the same as it used to be back in the day.
I just wouldnt mind sticking something in thats just works and does better than most others.
Ive cancelled the preorder... According to QVL that model so far is only compatible intel.
Trying to find something decent that can be purchased in AU.
They seem to be making some ryzen 5000 compatible stuff also noticed no kits of 4 😒
" New AMD Ryzen 5000 processors. Featuring ultra-high...
Anyone know much about these, is it B die?
To go with 5000 Ryzen
Trident Z RGB 32GB (4x8GB) features 4000MHz CL15 DDR4 memory, tested latency of 15-16-16-36, 1.50V, RGB lighting, XMP 2.0 support, and is optimised for Intel and AMD motherboards...
I think its also all the hype around new gpu from nvidia and amd now. Its making me feel like im missing out 😆
Price difference between 5600 and 5950 to me is not much and easy to justify. Something that i cluldnt do when it came to upgrading 1080ti strix oc to 2080ti.
Fair point, i havent used my pc in 6months lol.
Been preoccupied with hifi. I just wanted something to drive my 4k display at decent fps when cyberpunk comes out. (6900xt)
I foubd 5600x in stock as well.. hmmmmmm
Just came across this topic.
I think time has come to retire the 4770k, had it oc to 4.9ghz.
It has been brilliant cpu running without issues even pushing over 1.5v vcore, over 7 years!
Last couple years had to been running it 4.4ish due to thermals i think its thermal paste thats gone crap...
