  1. @goto10 So are you partial to HWMonitor then or something else?
  2. @Alex Atkin UK Unfortunately no it is not reporting any specific core, I have tried watching them one at a time. I typically use the hottest core for OCing, was just surprised by the readings on this. Idle it reads 15C which is about 6C over ambient for my 5.2 Ghz OC on the 9900K @ 1.305 vCore. @goto10 I will have to double check but last I ran HWinfo64 it was showing similar numbers. I should not run them side by side correct?
  3. I was always under the impression that my CPU temperature was based on the hottest core, however AIDA64 is reporting a CPU temperature that is about 5-10 C lower than the hottest core, should I just be using the individual core temps as the temperatures that I monitor or is the overall CPU temperature sufficient? Any direction that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
  4. @Sat1600 I will have to give it a go. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. Crazy enough we are having a garage sale and despite the fact that almost no one would look at something that pricey I will have it out on display.
  5. It is sad to part it out as it works well all together. My daughter keeps asking me to have it but it is a little more PC than a 4 year old needs.
  6. @Suika This is the conclusion I am arriving at through these interactions. I thank you for the feedback. In all honesty I may just have to bite the bullet and part it out.
  7. @Sat1600 That makes sense, actually I have a spare HX850i lying around I could sub in though it would still be overkill.
  8. @emosun Hmm, clearly that is not what I did until you mentioned it not being new, so checking used prices Isn’t a good way of doing it then either? What would you do then to get a target?
  9. @emosun You are correct obviously but I am definitely not using new pricing. Looking at what I paid to build it a couple years ago, and taking into account the mining craze driving up prices, just MSRP brings me to well over $3K. But your point is heard thank you for your feedback. @Airdragonz Yes I am in US dollars, and great points. I have all the original parts for the case and the stock coolers for the cards. I will have to highlight that. @Sat1600 Yeah it would be better to part out. Taking it apart would be a bit sad but may be necessary. Thank you for the advice.
  10. I need some help from this amazing community deciding on an asking price for a system that I am getting rid of. Thermaltake Core P5 w/tempered glass panels Core i7 8700K Maximus X Hero Wi Fi ac 2x EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition HX1000i PSU 256 GB NVME Toshiba Boot Drive 480 GB SSD Hard Drive 32 GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB Full EKWB Watercooling 47” LG 1080P TV Logitech Keyboard and Mouse Here is where my head is at: CPU + MB = $400 RAM = $200 GPUs = $500+$500 PSU = $100 Chassis and TG = $100 Watercooling = $350 TV = $250 Total = $2250-$2500 Am I way off? Those seem to be reasonable prices based on what they are going for on Ebay. The only place I feel I may be over is the RAM, maybe the TV too, any thoughts would be appreciated.
  11. @ItzUknown Okay here are a couple of things you can try. The support page for your GPU has two separate utilities that could be used to control the card, the Xtreme one you have already tried and the Aorus Engine which may be an option, I do not know as I have never used the software however it seems to have been updated again in June which may help. Secondarily There seems to be a bios update for the card listed on the support site for it. Maybe update the bios on the card. I will highlight that updating the Bios on the card is not as easy as the motherboard and there is potential to fail. If you choose to take that step you may want to contact Gigabyte support first. I am not trying to be a pain but I cannot be responsible if you attempt that and it bricks the card. In my experience I have gotten answers from Aorus faster through their facebook page and chat than through their support site if you do want to get in touch with them.
  12. @Rhaemond no problem. Just thought I would make a suggestion.
