  1. I have been able to install the stock cooler over the course of the weekend. Now my CPU runs on load at mac of 75° Celsius and no thermal throttling occurs anymore. I reaches about 4.1GHz in this setup. I am currently at work and will put in some pictures later this day of Ryzen Master. Yet, I have not given up completely on the AIO yet, as soon as possible I'll install it again, and if the problem with the temps persists I am going to RMA it. Thank all of you for your support!
  2. The newest screenshot in this thread was taken with everything reset to standard in the BIOS. Which I think are plausible in context with these temps when I used the offset. I will look into the mount in a short time and let you know if anything changed. I am no expert, but slowly I start thinking that of the thermal compund might be reacting with some residue of the cleaner I used and therefore lowering the head conductivty which ends up in high temps. When I take of the cooler the next time to change it to the stock cooler I will take some photos to share here for sure. I have been digging in the BIOS but could only find PBO yet, in which category would PB2 & XFR2 possibly be? (Sidenote: The Ai Tweaker tab is called Extreme Tweaker in the v1001 BIOS of my new motherboard) I am not planning on selling my 2700X on the used market, as I will be using it in a new server to tinker around with various things. Anyway, thanks for that suggestion!
  3. With all due respect, I want to clear something up regrading this. As I stated in my reply, I can get it 88.- CHF (which is 88.5$ USD) cheaper (This discount comes from an RMA of a product which the retruned in money). It has to be said, that the online store I can apply this "credit" only sells the 3800X (Note: the "credit" can only be in that the store). Considering this, that's the best option I got in a long time to replace my current CPU, which I presume can't quite handle the juice that the X570 board is giving.
  4. Anyway, I want to follow up with this image of Ryzen Master. This was taken after I loaded back in the standards of the mainboard. To be more precise, the PC was running for nearly two hours of trying different changes like disabling PBO, changing the Voltage, etc. That being said, these temperatures seem abnormal form me just on desktop whilst I only ran Ryzen Master to monitor the CPU. Furthermore I'm clueless whether this is actually just a BIOS matter (e.g. beefy voltage, aggressive boosting) or more like a user error (e.g. to little or to much thermal paste, though to much should not be impacting it as much according to Tech Jesus/Steve, messed up mount of the AIO). I'll take any guesses on the problem and take effort to fix this mess according to your suggestions. --- At the same time I am wondering if I should already upgrade the CPU to the 3800X. I can get 88.- CHF (which is 88.5$ USD) off on it, making it 351.- CHF (352.98$ USD). I would like to hear your opinions on this.
  5. From what I remember it should already be set to Default. Nevertheless I will check that when I'm at the PC again. I tried highlighting it, but nothing did happen. This might be user-error as I never touched anything like that in any BIOS. I tried using the Offset Mode with - 0.025V (please let me know if that was way too much to start with) and got an idle temp of 77° Celsius. I applied a little load and the temp spiked to 102.5° and the PC went into thermal shutdown. My plan is now to bench with Cinebench and then swapping the motherboards to do it on the older so I could compare these results. I think of aggressive boosting causing this aswell, but if I'm not mistaken the voltage plays a crucial role in that to. Regarding the aggressive boosting I have no idea what to turn off or on, PBO seems to be the no°1 recommended setting to turn off. I wil try this again when I'm back at my PC. Is there anything else I could possibly turn off which could potentially help solving this problem?
  6. All of my motherboard settings are default, except the boot settings. I had to change them so I would be able to boot into Windows. I have reverted to the default settings 3x in the last 48h, but the results/readouts are more or less the same. I suspect that the X570 chipset is very aggressive in its voltage behaviour, even with Pinnaccle Ridge CPUs, I have not found anything that would prove my assumption though. If I'm completely wrong with this, don't hestitate to tell me. I might want to give the stock cooler a try aswell, to see how the CPU would behave with that one (obviously setting BIOS to standard beforehand). Fair point. I cut it down to Ryzen Master and CPU-Z just to be able to do a small stress test to see how it performs under an applied load.
  7. It maxes out at around 85°C, for the lack of a better programm I used CPU-Z in the stresstest mode. I will edit my OP to reflect this properly in short time. I bough the AIO on the 13th January 2017. The ICUE software reads out that the pump is running around 2.8k RPM. Might this be a bug and it's actually not running at all, as you described which could happen? If this would've happened I'd still got warranty on it, so I could RMA it, and get another AIO... It should not be turned on afaik. EZ System tuning is on "normal" which is the default I suppose. I tried the disabling PBO, but that didn't help either aka affecting the temperature or the voltage. It's still 1.4V It's the static readout my BIOS gives me, I tried turning it down. In "Manual" I can't set the voltage, and neither in the "Offset" mode of the CPU voltage in the Extreme Tweaker tab. I assume I am missing a critical information about changing the voltage. I will search the web regarding this.
  8. Yes, it is running, Though it has to be said that I got it connected to the Commander Pro Hub from Corsair and that is hooked up with the USB 2.0 header on my motherboard. I can controll the modes aswell, I put it into extreme mode because of the temperature though. It should be in the spoiler, though I do not know why the spoiler messed up so badly. On the previous board mine was idling at around the same temperature as yours, with the AIO not being on the extreme profile though. It's really strange to me that it shows this behaviour now, after I changed my motherboard. I forgot to mention in the original post, that I reset the motherboard back to standards. I have read about clearing CMOS, though this would be my last action I want to take. As stated in my second paragraph, the voltage of 1.4V is reported in the BIOS. The TPU is set to "Keep current settings" (whatever that's called) and the voltage is set to "Manual". Though I can not change it at all. Could it be that I am missin a crucial bit of knowledge on how to set the voltage on my own? (Never did anything regarding this)
  9. Greetings! I have just changed my motherboard to the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WiFi) and I am using a Ryzen 7 2700X (I will be upgrading soon though). I use a Corsair H100i V2 AIO for cooling in a H700i case with 7 fans (3x 120mnm intake, 3x 120mm exhaust & 1x 140mm exhaust). Yesterday, whilst I was updating Armoury Crate, the PC suddenly shut itself of and did not turn on again (I thought it was rebooting because for updating). This did not happen and it was the point where I started worrying. After that I went into the BIOS to check the temperature of the CPU and I was astonished that it was hitting 51°-55° Celsius just idling around in the BIOS. I verified that all the connectors were put thightly together. To ensure I didn't mess something up with thermal pasted, I applied it again (Phobya Nano Grease Extreme), I cleaned the CPU with 2-component ArticClean Cleaner beforehand to get rid of the old thermal paste. After that I did some digging and found Ryzen Master to monitor the performance. Whilst idling on my desktop (Win10 1903) the temp is around 55°-60°, I have following programs open: Vivaldi (Browser), Ryzen Master, CPU-Z, HWiNFO, (To monitor the CPU) and ICUE (Monitor AIO, Watrer-tem is around 43°-46° Celsius). I looked for a new BIOS on the Asus website and downloaded the Bios-Version 1001 and installed it. Later I installed all new chipset drivers aswell. Today I bough new thermal paste (Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut) and applied it aswell after cleaning the CPU of the old paste again. If I idle now in the BIOS it gets a temp of 41°-42° Celsius with a voltage of 1.4V, which is still too hot for me. I did some more digging regarding this issue and found many different posts on any kind of forums that the 2700X tends to be hotter and run at a higher voltage. Though this behaviour (temp and voltage) are completely new to me, before this "updgrade" I was running it on a Asus ROG Strix F470-F Gaming and the temperatures were never as high as they are now (tended to be around high 60°s to mid 70°s). And then there is the EDC, which is usally in the mid 90% area plus the CPU downclock more or less to 3.7 GHz when being stressed. Am I worrying to much about temp, voltage and the clock-speed, or do I have a real problem? If I do have a problem, be so kind to explain it and present possible solutions/fixes for this. Thanks in advance
  10. Oh damn, I feel so silly for asking this question now that I went through the manual once again and found the expansion slot section. Thanks anyway to all of you with your answers and my apologies for asking that.
  11. Greetings! I am looking to upgrade my PC from a R7 2700X to a R9 3900X (Note: The R7 2700X will be reused alongside its motherboard in another system). I have looked through many motherboards and have chosen the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero as the motherboard I want to buy. I'm faced with an inconvenience though: I want to add in a NIC in the future for 10GbE connectivity. I saw the table in the manual regarding the PCI-E operation (Chapter 1.1.5 in the manual) but I can't really grasp it. This is the conclusion I formed: I am not able to have my GPU in PCI-E x16_1 running at maximum bandwith, if I add the NIC. Can I work something out by changing the operation of the slots, or is my conclusion (sadly) correct? Either way, I would like to have informative answers so I can learn as well.
  12. So, when I was on holiday with my parents a few years back, we were staying in a nice hotel in Austria. One evening we decided to have a seat in the bar and enjoy the mountain view. On the table next to us there were two elderly couples having their best time of life. Suddenly one phone rang and the husband (I assume) handed the ringing phone to his wife. So she said all the stuff you'd normally say if you pick up your phone....... Yeah about that.... She didn't pick up the call, until she opened the phone (an older flip phone), obviously the person calling hung up already. At this point it's obvious to say that my parents and me were trying to keep a straight face. (Trying.....)
