Put it wherever it looks best and makes tube routing easier.ahhh that was going to be my next question, ill wait ekwb reply, would it be better to have the res mounted in front of my wall of GT fans (8x) in front, or in the area near the mobo since i have massive amounts of room to sapre?
The case you claim you have already has a mount there. Maybe you should google some images of the case to see what it looks like because looking through the clear glass panel you're supposedly sitting next to doesn't seem to be working.well if i can get a nice mount id think between the board and the fans would be best, as itd not choke intake and its be close enough to the cpu to not have fulgy tubing, ill have to watch ton of jays2cents vids as some iv seen he makes it look incredibly easy, only worry i have is cutting the tubes to fit and leak testing. and proper technique to bleed air outa the system.
Actually Best Buy 999.99 and no price gauging.... End of the month or next month...Cascade Lake-X launched some time ago. Although, few of the CPU's have actually been available for purchase. Here is the deal: If you have a delidded 7980XE that can do 4.5GHz, it probably isn't worth the upgrade. You'll be spending a lot of money to maybe reach 4.7 or 4.8GHz. That's about all these are good for given how hot they get. Delidding won't do as much for these either as they have a soldered TIM. The CPU itself is essentially the same except for supporting additional RAM and having a 48 PCIe lanes instead of 44.
Also, the Core i9 10980XE CPU's should cost about $1,100. Any more than $1,200 and you are blatantly getting ripped off.
You have a core over 90C at idle? And the spread from coldest core to hottest core is over 50C? Water cooling isn't going to fix this. You've screwed something up in your build and need to figure out what it was, otherwise you'll have the exact same issue with water.im going to be putting this i9 7980xe into a rig for sale. if i can get a 10980xe close to msrp, this is start up after not using the system for a few days, water if def a need here.
I've seen some variance between cores on several CPU's. Usually, the spread is about 3 degrees. In some cases, it can be a bit more than that but I've never seen that kind of gap. A core at 90c while the system is idle tells me that something was messed up with the delid / relidding of the CPU.You have a core over 90C at idle?
