  1. Updated my bios, no change. Googled for a little bit and found that others are getting way better temps with their Corsair H100i v2's. 1.35V and getting 71 degrees during prime95. Some other dude is reporting 70 degrees for gaming, 85 degrees intel burn test. https://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=190710
  2. That are my motherboards stock settings indeed, not intel spec/stock. But yes this is turned on by default on my motherboard. So motherboard "stock" settings will have my CPU run between 4.7GHz and 5.0GHz all the time. I believe this was called MCE but could be mixing up terms here. I am not running the latest BIOS. I am running BIOS version F3 (which it shipped with). Newest version is F10b.
  3. Ah okay so these spikes in temps are expected, and there is not much I can do about it in terms of cooling. Other than to change the voltage, or start lapping the die and such. Already using Kryonaut thermal paste, so the paste should be fine I guess. Redid the thermal paste as well at some point. Made sure the AIO's CPU block is firmly mounted to the MOBO... Was worried that maybe my AIO was getting too old and maybe the fins that are on the coldplate were getting dirty or whatever
  4. So what youre saying is that maybe I need a bigger radiator. Which I'd be fine with, but I dont see why that would help for like the first 10 seconds of a benchmark where the cores already hit the 90s. At that point the water hasnt even started to warm up basically.
  5. I have heard of that, but I am not sure if I'm comfortable doing that. Just curious if this performance is expected with this cpu+aio with these voltage/frequency settings.
  6. Since the cores kind of immediately hit 90+ degrees when starting the benchmark in Cinebench R20, I am not really expecting fans to be the issue here, but maybe that the block thats on the cpu doesnt transfer the heat away from the cpu fast enough? The AIO is almost 4 years old now, but I have used it for an i5 first, so dont really have any performance stats of it when it was new that I could compare it to.
  7. Pump speed is set to extreme (3000rpm instead of 2000rpm) and the fan speed is a custom profile, as I am using Noctua Industrial NF-12 fans instead of the default Corsair fans.
  8. Hey all! I am using a i9 9900k, with MCE enabled in the bios, so it runs at 4.7GHz all-core all day. I've manually set the VCore to 1.280 in the bios, as it was pulling 1.392 volt (according to hwinfo) when it was set to auto. This made the cpu get really hot extremely fast, and 1.280V with a medium load line setting seems to be just as stable (no BSODs, no WHEAs). According to hwinfo my CPU is using about 1.230V when under load. (same results with "auto" load line and 1.310 VCore in BIOS) When playing games that use about 50% of the cpu, my CPU (package) averages around 60-75 degrees Celcius. Running Cinebench R20 for like 1 run, will get the CPU package to reach 99 degrees (which seems to be the max value reported by hwinfo) and starts thermal throtteling. The liquid in my AOI will eventually reach 50 degrees Celcius after a minute or 10. I am worried these temps are a little high for an undervolted i9 (with MCE enabled) with a Corsair AIO (240mm). Are these temps expected with this AIO? Would temps improve with another AIO or air cooler? Set up: Front-mounted radiator, pull. (case has 3 exhaust fans). Case: NZXT H440 case. Having the case front off (eliminating the case being a bottleneck here) doesn't decrease temps. Cooler: Corsair H100i V2, with 2x Noctua NF-12 Industrial 2000rpm (running at 1000 rpm till 40 degrees, then 1500 rpm). Pump is set to performance mode (3000rpm). Using Kryonaut thermal grizzly. Room temp: 22-24 degrees
  9. Thanks @paddy-stone and @Valkyrie Lenneth. It turned out to be my PSU after all. I switched the power supply in my gaming rig (the faulty one) with the one from my NAS. Both systems ran fine after that for 1,5 months. When swapping them back my gaming pc crashed again within 2 days. At that point I was pretty sure the issue was with the PSU. The NAS is on 24/7 but uses way less power than my pc (<50w I'd guess). Seems that the PSU was just no longer able to reliably handle higher loads. I sent the PSU in for warranty to Corsair. They sent me a new one within a week. Great service ? The new one has been working flawlessly for a month now
  10. I'm planning on buying an 1440p ultra wide high refresh rate IPS monitor. I'm currently looking at LG's offerings. They have two variants of the same model: the LG 34GK950F-B and the LG 34GK950G-B. Both are 34" (AH)IPS, 3440x1440, 8bit+FRC, 400 cd/m2, 98% p3. The F model is the FreeSync 2 version. Natively supports 48Hz-144Hz. This model goes for €1049 where I live. The G model is the G-Sync version. Supports up to 100Hz natively, 120Hz with overclock. This model goes for €1149. I have an NVIDIA graphics card (1080TI) and I would like to use some form of variable refresh rate technology to sync the refresh rate of the monitor with the fps from my game, since not every game I play will run at 100+ fps on that resolution. I know that NVIDIA now supports adaptive sync (FreeSync) technology on their graphics cards. However, this F model is not "G-Sync Compatible" (according to NVIDIA). And when I check the Master Testing List, it seems that not-officially supported monitors might do fine in some titles, but can have issues (like flickering, frame skipping, etc.) in others. According to threads online, these issues can sometimes be fixed by restarting the pc, replugging the monitor, reinstalling drivers, etc. This adaptive sync support for NVIDIA cards still sounds somewhat unstable to me. I'd prefer to just have a monitor that works 100% of the time (aka just in all titles), without having to manually change or fix things. Would I, because of that, be better off going for the G model, even if its a bit more expensive and only supports up to 120Hz? Or would you still recommend to go for the F version which is cheaper and supports up to 144Hz?
  11. @paddy-stone Turned out the fan header was not set to a fixed value of 100% (anymore?). Fixed that, issue with the AIO solved. I also came up with the idea to make hwinfo log its values to a log file, which already paid of (sadly) because my pc crashed twice this evening (2nd time not logged)... CPU temps were perfectly normal the package hit 90 degrees for a second during the 4 hour game session and never went any higher. Out of all the logs, I've only seen one thing that scared me a little; the psu temps and its fan speed. The last log entry (so up to 1-2 seconds before the crash) logged the following: PSU Temperature [C]: 69 PSU Temperature2 [C]: 47.5 PSU Fan [RPM]: 0 PSU Power (sum) [W]: 363.54 PSU Efficiency [%]: 91.6 Those temps where both the highest temps reported during the 4 hour game session. Earlier, the fan of the PSU did start spinning at 50.5 (temp sensor 1) and 37.3 (temp sensor 2) degrees. After the crash I booted the system again and it stopped after 2 seconds again. After 30 seconds I retried, it did start, but after 6 minutes in-game it crashed again. This all makes me think the PSU overheated...
  12. @paddy-stone Alright, I just found out the pump of my H110i v2 is reporting that its spinning between 1,290 RPM and 1,560 RPM. In the iCUE profiler it is set to extreme (which should be 3,000 RPM). The 2 other profiles (quiet and balanced) should let the pump spin at 2,000 RPM. I've not seen such low speeds before, and I've checked them every day last 3 weeks. It also no longer reports the fan speed (although they are spinning). The problem persists even after rebooting the system.
  13. @paddy-stone Well, I do have another desktop PC which I use as my NAS. I could swap its Corsair CX650M with the Corsair RM750i thats currently in my game PC and see how it performs. If that does not work I can also swap the memory sticks. As a last resort I can also take my old (pre-upgrade) motherboard and CPU and run that for a while, but I'd rather skip that one ? I sadly do not have a second CPU cooler which would be sufficient for the i9. Some of those air coolers are not too expensive though, so I'd not mind to buy one just to try it.
  14. @Valkyrie Lenneth @paddy-stone After 21 days without any crashes, I've got one today... This was without the CPU under volt applied, with the JDEC mem spec (not xmp) and also with the GPU temp+power slider reset to auto (was 116% / 90 degrees). List of the crashes so far. "Sata ext" stands for a sata power extension cable I'm running to my sata SSD's (2). Thats besides the mobo/CPU the only new part. My pc runs fine for weeks. Even when gaming on it for 4-5 hours a day. The motherboard and the CPU are the only "new" things in the pc, but if they would be broken, I'd expect way more issues. Not once every 2-3 weeks. I'm not really sure how to proceed. Any ideas? One thing that came up is that maybe it could be my Corsair AIO. I know that it gets power via the 4 pin fan header. What if it for some reason does not get enough power for a few seconds which would then cause its pump to stop spinning and the CPU temps to climb rapidly. I always have msi afterburner open, but I expect temps to climb too fast in such case to actually be able to notice it before it thermal-shuts down. However, I did not notice any lag spikes before the crash (caused by thermal throttling), but then again, I've no idea how fast the CPU overheats if you give it 0 cooling for a few seconds.
  15. @paddy-stone Alright I will run the PC like this for a while. Will report back here in a month or when the problem occurs again
