  1. Going to buy a big and thicc 420mm rad and D5 pump for the current system, so I could easily use it with anything else. The UD9 is one of the early ones. When Buildzoid did his PCB breakdown the hottest Chip was the 7900x, which doesn’t give me too much confidence in its performance. Found a X299 Dark for $80 more. Might be better to buy this mobo instead.
  2. Personally not too keen on X99. Don’t feel like paying around $600 here in EU for another 6 core that’s barely better than my current one. Same goes for 8 core which isn’t much better. Also found a 7980xe for $650 and X299 UD9 for $250. With RAM I would barely exceed my budget.
  3. 5Ghz at 1.53v semi-stable. 4.95Ghz at 1.47v for “full system benching” perfectly stable. Air cooled using Cryorig R1 Ultimate
  4. As the title says, right now I’m on X79 (3930k) for my OC rig, and I’m looking for something to upgrade to. The things is, it needs to OC pretty well on ambient, so 3rd gen Ryzen is mostly out the window. It’s JUST FOR OVERCLOCKING and such. Possible subzero in further future. Lastly, I would like to stay below 1000€/1000$ for the whole setup (cpu, mobo, ram). Don’t care if it’s used, as long as it works. (If it’s ddr4 I’m getting Patriot 4400cl19 2x8gb for 90€ brand new)
  5. Water cooling (with/out ice bath) Pros: - price - ease of use (less/no insulation required, might need antifreeze) - versatility Cons: - max achievable temp around 0C - little to no scaling compared to ambient water/large air cooler? DIce (LN2 pot) Pros - around -70C with DIce, -190C with LN2 - better temp scaling = OCs - more “exotic” + flex Cons - Price - Availability - Versatility - Way harder you prepare - Way more dangerous (both components and me)
  6. Yes, but I still need a LN2 pot, which are really, really hard to come by here in EU, not to mention the cost. Also I need to worry far more about condensation and so on. DIce is around 4x cheaper here than LN2, and I don’t need a dewar, hose or anything.
  7. Trying to step up my OC game from large Air Coolers to something more “exotic” (cooling mainly cpu, maybe gpu in near future). Not sure if I should go with custom loop (with ice) or go straight for subzero with a LN2 pot and DIce (possible LN2 in further future). Budget is a concern, would like to stay below 500€ (EU-Czech Republic), so I have some cash on hand for anything I might fry. Most recent “achievement” in Firestrike: https://www.3dmark.com/fs/21421760 My current OC setup: R4F with 3930k at 4.95G@1.47v, various gpus.(Vegas, 1080ti, Rx 580, 480....)
  8. So, replaced the screws, tightened them real hard and now Im idling around 35C, after 15m of Prime I got to 60C. If I can say so, the issue has been solved, so its time to close this thread.
  9. Came with just standard Intel screws. The tips are a bit smaller than "normal" am4 screws, but they fit. I could try different AM4 screws for a different air cooler, but they are smaller in lenght, so I hope I dont crack the cpu/board when tightening them.
  10. Kingpin KPx, fresh of the tube, finger spread to unsure sufficient spread.
  11. - Lol no. I bought it second hand from a friend of mine who does custom loops "professionally" (flushed loop with over 20l of water) - Yep, tightened them as much as possible, right now trying different AM4 screws from a different cooler, but I doubt they will work - HWInfo, also tried BIOS. Both reporting idle temps around 50-60
  12. Hi lads, so after 5 days of working on my very first open loop (and went straight to hard line) I ran into this issue: A goddamn 3700x on stock is idleing around 60C, during 100% load (CB15) it almost instantly gets into low 80s. The loop consists of 360+240 rads, EK-XRES 100 SPC pump/res and a EK Supremacy WB. I bought the AM4 plate so I can install the block, but kept the screws that are used for Intel systems, but they screw in without a problem) I suspect it might either be insufficient contact between WB and CPU or possibly some gunk stick between WB´s microfins. During dissambly I inspected the WB for corrosion and cleaned any gunk possibly stuck in there. Water flow is OK, no issues there. Any help appreciated! (Post scriptum: Added photos of the build)
  13. As this. A box standard r5 1600 with a few bonus cores.
  14. Damn, how rare? Like 1 in 100k thousand? Found only one instance of it happening.
  15. Guys, I built a PC for a friend. Ordered a Ryzen 1600 (without box/cooler (tray)). After I put together the system and tested it, the Firestrike physics scores were a bit too high for a r5 1600. Found out it has 8 cores. Any way it’s broken or something or is just a free upgrade? pics as proof lol
