  1. Hello. If you are running Windows 10 and are able to boot into the OS - you could try this in Settings: Home - Recovery - Advanced Startup - Restart Now - Troubleshoot - Advanced Options - UEFI BIOS That should reboot you straight into the BIOS?
  2. You were absolutely correct. Booted into Ubuntu and fired up a monitor application. All four cores are running 26c or less That will teach me for being lazy and relying on the BIOS. Stupid graphical BIOS. Thanks again.
  3. Thanks for the advice all. I tried one last thing - basically trying to apply the thermal paste to the AIO heatsink as closely matched to how it comes when new. For the H80 its like this - so I applied it just like that, thin layer. Exactly same temps on the 7600K. Concluding that my / the H80 either sucks at cooling this CPU. I haven't seem any posts where CPUs work fine but have a fault which results in constantly higher operating temps. Will look at other AIOs - 2400M and brand new me thinks
  4. Most advice on here that I have read say AIOs offer better cooling vs air cooling, but with more noise. I think the 7600K temps are too high for idle, based on tests I've seen.
  5. Hi all, I bought a used Corsair H80 and have tested it with 2 CPUs as I think the temps I am getting are too high. The motherboard is an Asrock Z270M Pro4: https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/Z270M Pro4/index.asp The AIO is a Corsair H80: https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categories/Products/Liquid-Cooling/Hydro-Series™-H80-High-Performance-Liquid-CPU-Cooler/p/CWCH80 Thermal Paste is Arctic MX-4 I am testing using the BIOS screen which displays CPU and Motherboard temps - so this is basically idling doing nothing I have re-applied the thermal compound and re-fitted the AIO twice for each CPU. Temps Case is open during test 1 front intake fan AIO Fans (X2) (exhaust) speed 2108 RPM Intake Fan (X1) (intake) speed 2272 RPM i5-7600K 51c - 52c Celeron G3900 27.5c - 28.5c I've let the AIO run for circa 10 mins each time The radiator feels cold to the touch The pipes feel neither cold or warm Any opinions? Thanks
  6. I guess I will have to see. Some people are reporting that it is in fact possible with a GTX 1060 6GB albeit with an i5 4690k @ 4.4GHz (I have a 4670K)
  7. Hello all, Longtime reader, first time poster. Long story short: Looking to build a PC that can play modernish games at 4K at 60 FPS FPS limit of 60 set by my display (TV) Expect quality settings on visuals to be low - med Examples of games I play: GTA V, Fifa 19, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Hitman II Looking to get advice and guidance on: Which components I should use Specific configuration and overclock advice This is my first experience with overclocking components The components I have to choose from (I'm lucky I have a few options already in hand): CPU Intel Core i5-2500 2500K OR Intel Core i5-4670K AIO CPU LIQUID COOLER Corsair Hydro Series H80 OR Corsair Hydro Series H100i V2 OR Hydro Series H100i PRO RGB Motherboard ASUS P8Z77-M PRO OR ASUS GRYPHON Z87 RAM Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 X 4GB) DDR3 1866HZ GPU Asus GTX 1060 DUAL OC, 6GB OTHER BITS PSU: Corsair CS750M ATX 750W SSD: Corsair 3 Series 120GB SATA III SSD (CSSD-F120GB3-BK) HDD: Toshiba 500GB SATA III 5400RPM Hybrid SSD (MQ02ABF050H) CASE: Corsair Carbide 88R Mid Tower All input welcomed. Thanks.
