  1. Pretty normal, with just chrome and HWINFO64 open my 2700X bounces between 35-50c, and I'm running dual 360 rads.
  2. Here's a picture of Clear XSPC ECX coolant after being run with Mayhems Ultra Clear tubing for 3 months. Found a heap of what looked like plasticiser built up on the water block.
  3. Think you're a bit mixed up there, the SE is thin, PE is medium, XE is thick. SE has a 16mm core in a 28mm shroud with 21 FPI. PE has a 21.5mm core in a 38mm shroud with 18 FPI. XE has a 48mm core in a 60mm shroud with 15 FPI.
  4. My Noctua 3K fans idle at 500 rpm, they're pretty much silent at that speed.
  5. I'm running a pair of 360 rads (30mm and 40mm), with noctua industrial fans, in a custom loop, in a define R6. My 2700x running 4.35Ghz single core / 4.2Ghz all core, at 1.35v, will still hit low 70's C during prime 95 small FFT's, High 60's running multiple CB15 & 20 runs or when running handbrake. that's with an ambient of 24c.
  6. I'm using Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, which as far as I know is one of the better pastes. That's impressive temps for a 120mm rad, nice low core voltage too. Thanks for the replies everyone.
  7. Just wondering what kind of temps others are seeing when running Prime95 with custom loops. I'm running 2x 360 rads (EK PE and AC ST30) with Noctua industrial fans, D5 pump, EK Velocity CPU block, Bykski GPU block, in a Define R6. Running Prime95 Version 29.8 build 6, Small FFT's for 30 mins, tested two Ryzen 7 CPU's, 2700 and 2700X, and seeing similar results for both Ryzen 7 2700 - Ambient Temp 26c - Max CPU Temp 69c. Ryzen 7 2700X - Ambient Temp 26c - Max CPU Temp 72c.
  8. Just done a quick test.I have 40 tabs open in Chrome, 24 images open in Paint Shop Pro, watching a 4k video in MPC-BE, and have several files downloading in via download manager. Still plenty of ram free, so I opened another 20 Tabs, and another 20 images And again, another 20 tabs, and another 20 images. I'm gunna say 16GB should still be more then enough for most users.
  9. BIOS has been updated, it will work with Ryzen 3000.
  10. You can get Barrow 10k sensors from mydiyau's ebay store. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Barrow-G1-4-10K-Temperature-Sensor-Stop-Fitting-TCWD-V1/252377198424?_trkparms=aid%3D777001%26algo%3DDISCO.FEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160801204525%26meid%3Da569476ac50d4d4aa4dea43dfb86e1c7%26pid%3D100651%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26%26itm%3D252377198424&_trksid=p2481888.c100651.m4497&_trkparms=pageci%3A4af3d37a-9fae-11e9-9207-74dbd1803ba5|parentrq%3Ac5bd6cbb16b0a4b77c8ab393ff8b9b59|iid%3A1 https://www.vipc.com.au. has them as well, but looks like they are out of stock at the moment. https://www.vipc.com.au/products/xspc-g1-4-plug-with-10k-sensor https://www.vipc.com.au/products/xspc-g1-4-inline-10k-sensor
  11. Hey everyone, I'm attempting to get a couple of BIOS faults fixed by Asus, that have made it into at least the last four BIOS updates. Board is an ROG Crosshair VI Extreme, first fault is VDDP voltage always shown as 0.065v no matter what it's set to in BIOS, After hours of researching forums, I haven't been able to find an instance of an Extreme that doesn't have this fault. Second fault is fan smoothing doesn't work, no matter what the bios is set too, from what I've found, this is a common problem with a lot of Asus boards, both AMD and Intel. I opened a support ticket, but after much back and forth, supplying way more info then they need to reproduce the fault, tech support insist I need to send the board back to the place of purchase for "RMA hardware and BIOS check", which I believe is a waste of both the retailers, and my time, as the fault is not specific to my board, and as far as I can tell, is found on all Crosshair VI Extreme boards. It seems to me that Asus tech support, doesn't know how to deal with the problem, so have palmed it off to the RMA department. So how do we actually get faults fixed, if tech support won't pass the information on to the relevant department? Has anyone been through this procedure before, and if so, did you find a remedy? Thanks in advance.
  12. D5's pull around 2amp (24watts) @ 12v. A molex connector should supply 10 amps (120watts) @ 12v, so unless the pumps, or cable are faulty, it should not be overloading. It could be electrical noise, what happens if you disconnect the PWM cables?
  13. Sounds similar to a problem I run into several years ago with a Noctua NH-C12P & NH-C14, on an overclocked Phenom 1100T (4GHz - 1.425v). Would run Prime95 perfectly fine all day, with the case laying on it's side, but as soon as I stood the tower case up into the correct orientation, would overheat and blue screen pretty fast. At stock speeds/voltages, it didn't matter what the case orientation was, but OC'ed the heat pipes just couldn't remove the heat, unless the case was laid on it's side.

  14. I'm running the same D5 PWM, EK 140 pump/res combo, and can't hear any difference between PWM of 25% and 100% It's in a Define R6 mounted on the front radiator with a EK-UNI Pump Bracket. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-uni-pump-bracket-120mm-fan
