    In my opinion the most ignored factor in comparisons between consoles and PCs is time.
    New console releases don't happen as often as PC hardware releases. So there is a large value difference between the beginning and the end of a console lifecycle.
     
    When the XBox One came out it was a very competitive system and very hard to beat with a PC at a similar price point.
    Now it's easier for a PC to have a better value, but when the new XBox Series X has launched this will most likely change again.
     
    I think it is also important to measure value not only by performance and price, but also by subjective aspects.
    Some people might just like the very streamlined experience of a console or the very simple user interface or clean design.

    Senzelian reacted to WoodenMarker in In search for a vertically mounted AM4 air cooler.   
    The case seems to have a fairly standard cooling layout with a rear fan mount so there probably isn't any notable performance difference in having the cooler mounted horizontally or vertically. There are more fans at the top but the fan at the rear is closer to the cooler. 
     
    What cpu and ram are you using?
    The NH-D15 fits with the fans lowered but you'd need low profile ram for the front fan to go that low. With the front fan removed, the cooler can be 160mm tall and fit just fine.

    Senzelian reacted to Grabhanem in In search for a vertically mounted AM4 air cooler.   
    I'm guessing the biggest challenge will be getting proper airflow around the graphics card, as that will tend to choke the intake in that orientation. If you're doing CPU only things and only have a gt210 or something as a display adapter, though, you'll be fine.

    You can mount pretty much any noctua cooler that uses the secufirm system vertically, as long as you have clearance.

    Senzelian got a reaction from LogicalDrm in Which way to place?   
    The AIO pump plugs into the W_PUMP header and the fans in the CPU_FAN header. Or at least they should.
    The CHA_FAN headers are really just for case fans.
     
    There isn't any difference tho between these headers. It's just so its easier for you to know what device you plugged into which header.
    But one thing you have to know is, that the CPU_FAN headers are always controlled by the CPU temperature. This can often be changed within the BIOS.
     
    You'll figure it out tho. Its not rocket science

    There is only one way it will go in. Just try it, you'll see what we mean.

    Senzelian got a reaction from doommood in Will i need a BIOS update?   
    Yes, you need an update.

    You need at least 5.40
    If you decide to update your BIOS, follow the steps carefully on this page:

    You shouldn't simply jump from 4.50 to 5.40!

    Senzelian got a reaction from Zic05 in CPU at 100° with Kraken X52   
    The most likely cause for this issue is the pump or the header it is plugged into.
     
    So the first thing I would do, is to plug the pump into a different fan header, assuming it actually plugs into a fan header at all. I never touched a X52 before 😛
    You can also check whether the pump is working or not by either feeling the pump cover, which should vibrate slightly or listen to it. Simply put your ear next to it and you should hear a noticeable humming noise. (Make sure you don't mistake it for the fans' noise)
     
    I assume you don't have an air cooler, since your 6700K doesn't come with one.
    But in case you have one, replace your AIO with a different cooler and see if that changes anything.
     
    I don't think the temp sensor failed. Usually they then either read some ridiculous numbers like a billion °C or simply read 0°C.
    These temps look way to realistic for it to have failed.
     
    Btw.: Don't worry about your CPU. Your CPU will throttle itself down to prevent it from overheating or will shut down before any damage can occur.
    Keep in mind Intel specifies a TjMax for the 6700K at 100°C.
    (For some reason they got rid of TjMax on Intel Ark and replaced it with Tcase which is specified at 64°C. Doesn't make any sense tho. Weird...)

    Ok, I will listen for the pump. Also the pump plugs into a SATA power port, and my HDD is using the same cable from the PSU, and my HDD is showing up in the BIOS so I don’t think it’s that. Thanks though!

    This is what the Nazis did 80 years ago. They had "lawful access" to open private lettters, which is sort of the same as a encryptet end-to-end message, with the difference being, that your encryption key was basically nothing but trust. And now that we can't even trust the government and companies to handle our information with care, we're supposed to give up the last wall that was protecting our data. Funny...
