  1. Got it, thanks!! That's exactly what I needed to know.
  2. I have been looking at the 2017-released Xp, to clarify. Is the 2080 that close in performance across the board?
  3. I'm looking to update one of my workstations as I'm handling more video work than I expected recently. This machine currently has a 1080, and I'm looking around the various used markets at 2080s, 2080 Supers, and a few Titan Xps. Given the age of the Titan, does it make sense to include in my search? This machine is used nearly solely for photo and video editing, with occasional (non-AAA) gaming. It'll be driving a 4K editing monitor, if that matters here. A 2080 seems to run $500-650, a 2080 Super $600-750, and the Titan is around the middle at $650-700. I've been reading benchmarks, but those seem mostly geared towards gaming, which is not exactly my use-case. Any advice is greatly appreciated, friends!
  4. That's what I suspected. The reading on the screen, which is what's controlling the fan speed, still fluctuates between 50C and 65C while the actual CPU temp is around 35C in Ryzen Master and HWMonitor. Would you recommend leaving the fan curves as they are and living with the noise, or adjusting them back to where I had them (keeping the pump at 100%)?
  5. Wow, that was quick and thorough! Thanks! Reading your reply, it seems obvious now that the pump display may be showing coolant temp, not actually reading the CPU. Running the pump at 100% now, the pump screen reading (assuming it's coolant going forward) dropped from 63C at idle (Ryzen Master showing CPU at about 35C, ambient around 22C) to about 55C. Changing the fan curves from my previous the-temp-must-be-wrong curve to a 0% @40C > 100% @55C shows coolant jumping between ~48C and ~57C, and the fans are constantly ramping up and down. If that's normal and expected, cool. I'll live with a little fan noise. The CPU temp through all this hasn't changed a whole lot, from maybe 37C average with my previous quieter curves to 35C. The CPU temp jumps between low 30s and mid 40s every few seconds, and the fans ramp up and down with about the same frequency. Is this just my welcome back to team red?
  6. Good morning all! I recently rebuilt my machine and grabbed the AIO in the title because it was easy and cool looking. I have a few questions after having used it for a few weeks now. Most of them stem from what seems to be horrid manufacturer software. Thermaltake P3 Gigabyte Aorus Master B550 AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Corsair something RGB memory 32GB 3200 (old 1080Ti) Gigabyte Aorus 360mm AIO (has a screen on the pump) First, I installed the cooler per the instructions, which include powering the unit via a SATA cable and connecting the fans and LEDs to the pump- it has a cable with three plugs each for those two. Under this configuration, the 'normal' way of controlling the fan and pump curves seems to be to use Gigabyte's Aorus Engine, which also allows you to configure the screen on the pump. RGB Fusion is used to configure the LEDs. Both programs have been exceedingly frustrating for a number of reasons. Aorus Engine, which controls the pump, fans, and pump screen, seems to be reading the wrong CPU temperature. I'm not sure where it's grabbing it, but it routinely reads 55-60C idle, while Ryzen Master and HWMonitor both show mid-to-low 30C. Because it's reading high, it runs the fans and pump faster than they need to, and I've adjusted the fan curves to be very low until about 65C to compensate. The pump's incorrect / high temp reading does seem to accurately reflect when the CPU temp exceeds 60C, and follows it pretty closely after that. My questions, then, revolve around whether this is a normal or accepted setup using an AIO. I've always used higher-end air coolers, so my experience is a bit limited. Is the high temp reading from Gigabyte's software normal? If not, is there a way to fix it? Would I be better off running the fans from the MB instead of the pump's headers? I could be comfortable just setting a pump speed and leaving it, given that I can't control that from the MB. If I were to run the fans from the MB, I assume I would set the curves in the BIOS and be done with it. What about the LEDs? If I plug those into the MB, can I avoid using Gigabyte software, or am I still stuck with it if I run the LEDs from the MB? Any insight would be lovely! The setup as of now is tolerable, I just don't like having inconsistent temp readings from the thing controlling the fans and pump.
