  1. Here is my setup from signature. I had this old 32” 720p tv with damaged speakers laying around and used some "engineering" to install it as my second monitor. Removed the plastic frame and screw it in a shelf support bracket to create the angle, covering the metal with electrical tape… it can fool you by looking like a slim tv from far away and works very well (haha) Also went ahead and installed a shelf just for the case, that way I have more space and its more secure up there (avoid spilling drinks etc). Same for the edifier speakers, and I gotta say, the audio quality improved by a lot in doing that.
  2. Hello everyone, I got an Adata SX6000 Pro nvme and it easily gets to 85-90C under load (thermal throttling around 70C). The "heatsink" that comes with it is a joke, looks like a sticker, so here is my problem: the nvme heatsink in my motherboard (Z390 Aorus Elite) is a 110mm version, but I was stupid enough to try unscrewing that 110 stand (thinking I should have to place it at the 80 position) so now the 110mm stand is unglued/broke from the board and just hangs there. I can't rely on it to hold the nvme upwards pressure as it will surely just come off. So I chopped the 110mm heatsink to fit 80mm stand and it created another issue, I can't hold it down because the back tab for the screw is gone too. I found this heatsink version online that comes with rubberbands and I was thinking in simulating it with electrical tape... but will the temperature damage the tape in a long run? theoretically it would just be touching the side/back of the pcb. If so, what else cold I use for that? I don't wanna spend money on this thing just to use two rubberbands and wait 3 weeks to arrive, it is kind of a funny situation to be honest. Here is some pics so you can follow what I am trying to say:
  3. I did more testing and the Vcore reading fluctuation seems to be just a normal behavior of this board/sensors, VCCIO didn't help as I initially thought, I just had to leave it reading for more time to drop again. VR VOUT on the other hand is rock solid with min and maxes, so thanks again for letting me know. This brings another question though, other board manufacturers doesn't seem to include VR VOUT so most people out there is going by Vcore readings (as I was) when talking about overclock and on. I have seem others using 1.25-7v for 5.0Ghz on the 9900K -does that mean their "real" voltage is under 1.20? By my testings: 1.31v in bios, VR VOUT 1.29 idle / 1.23 under load 1.27v in bios, VR VOUT 1.25 idle / 1.20 under load All I want to do is leave it locked at 4.7Ghz with a fixed voltage and forget about it. I hate having to test for hours to find a sweet spot and then 2 weeks later get a random BSOD/hang, so I always aim voltage a little higher or to the safe side as best as I can. Currently I am using the 1.31v in bios, based on all that, do you think this is overkill for stock clocks? will it be fine long term at 1.27v (1.20v load)?
  4. Thanks for clarifying, I am on the latest bios F10c. VR VOUT is at 1.260v (min 1.231 max 1.262) idle and looking at a saved data from a previous stress test it reduces to 1.222 average (min 1.209 max 1.236) under max load. I didn't even know about it so I assume those lower readings are just normal/OK based on the set "vcore"? cause this thing will simply catch on f.. if I try to get 1.275v vr vout.
  5. Thanks I think you nailed it, raised vccio to 1.02v and now my min vcore is 1.260v (max raised too to 1.308). Fluctuation still here but seems more acceptable (+-0.25v) while before it was weird (-0.50v +0.10v). Regarding voltage optimization I have disabled it thinking it was the cause, but apparently nothing changed. For the IA PS VRM current, should I mess with them? by description it says 1/4 so threshold 1,2,3 would be respectively 20A,5A,1A -idk what they mean/do. On a previous Asus board I had a performance mode option that would set power limit 4090 and core current to 255amps meaning maxed out, which settings represents this here? it just seems like a very complicated, or "advanced" bios.
  6. I don't see this option, would it be related to "frequency clipping TVB"? Specs: i9 9900KF@stock Z390 Aorus Elite 16GB (2x8) Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400mhz cl16 (@2666 1.26v) eVGA RTX2060 Corsair CX450 Bios settings (I wrote in green which screen), memory settings is all auto:
  7. My previous system never did that, but this config drops to 1.23v when at idle, vcore manual 1.285v. All C-states and other cpu enhancements;power options are disabled, ratio is at stock 47 for all cores, load line set to turbo -option 5 (if I go higher it just over-volts it). This BIOs has so many strange options without explanation that I must be missing something, any ideas?
  8. Thanks, I will just get a better cooler with screw mountings/backplate, but I tested it and it works perfectly. The mount on the mini version is the same for Gammaxx 400. Here is my results w/ 9900kf@4.7Ghz stock locked at 1.29-1.31vcore + MX-4 paste, 28C ambient temp. With intel v. it started to throttle in 4min at 3% (not catched on HWinfo), AMD v. 6min at 4% (catched on HWinfo). Ran the test for 10min and overall everything seems the same but averages/graph seems a little better on AMD v. about 1-2C cooler. Important to note that I didn't clean/replied paste to test on the amd v., also when I first tested the intel v. ambient temp was about 1-2C cooler so it had a slight advantage there. I guess the AMD v. performs better but at the same time I expected a little more, the pins still do a great job.
  9. Hi everyone, I just got a Gammaxx 400 and thought the screws mount that comes with it would fit 1151 (I mistakenly assume that watching a review on Intel 2066). Anyway, I hate those pins as they doesn't look strong enough and also seems to apply less pressure when compared to AMD version. Talking about it, I have that circular plastic adapter (that comes on the Deepcool Mini) and would like to know if anyone has attempted to use it on the Gammaxx 400 with the AMD adapter? And what do you think about this idea? I know it still uses push-pins but this design just seems better overall and applies centralized pressure... assuming all clearances match and are the same of course.

    Pciex bug

    They are both updated to the latest version Yes I did all that and even running render in the ? mark doesn't change. It is like a bug, if I get lucky it boots on 3.0 mode. If it boots on 1.1 nothing will change it, doesn't matter running render/games etc. Here's the comparison: 1.1 3.0

    Pciex bug

    Thank you, I am also 99% sure its the motherboard as the gpu always worked @3.0 on my previous board. Unfortunately I do not have another vga to test right now.

    Pciex bug

    What is happening is that it randomly boots in either 3.0 or 1.1 pciex mode, and I did run the test, it doesn't change.
  13. Thank you, most people (to not say everyone) here in Brazil tech forums recommends 650W+ PSUs for a system like this, so I am trying to research as for my usage it seems perfectly fine and the pc is quiet. And good to know about XFX PSUs, I guess this is why they are the cheapest tier A- in the stores here.
  14. For a 9900KF paired w/ RTX2060 at stock, 2x M.2s and 3x 120mm led fans do I really need more than 450W? If yes, which one of those models would you recommend? -XFX 650W TS 80 Plus Gold (P1-650G-TS3X) -XFX XTR2 650W 80 Plus Gold Modular (P1-0650-XTR2) -Corsair 650W 80 Plus Bronze CX650 (non-M ) (CP-9020122 )
