i9900K Temperatures/ Overclock

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

 

I have multiple questions so please hang with me - I've built a new PC and I don't know if I'm to stats focused at present but want to ask the questions. It's a custom loop with the following:

 

  • Core i9900K (No Overclock)
  • Phanteks Eclipse P600S
  • Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB
  • Samsung 970 EVO Plus Polaris 2TB
  • Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero
  • EVGA XC Ultra Geforce RTX 2080 Ti
  • EK Water Blocks EK-CoolStream SE 280
  • EK Water Blocks EK-CoolStream SE 420
  • EK Water Blocks EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM
  • EK Water Blocks EK-Velocity
  • EK Water Blocks EK-Vardar EVO 140ER Black BB (X5)
  • G.Skill Trident Z 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3600MHz
  • Corsair HXi Series HX1000i

I'm running 2X 4K Monitors along with 1X Mimo USB Screen (1280x800 which I believe runs via CPU?) - I have a number of Chrome tabs also open with Discord, Steam and other applications open. 

 

At present my fluid is registering a temperature of 29c and temps on the CPU are at between 29/35ish - however what is getting me is the odd spike which occurs, for example, the spike that goes to 53c, do these temperatures look normal for the general work task at hand?

 

GPU is 30c and a max of 40c

 

Ambient room temperature is 26.1c

 

I've ran a RealBench R20 test and I've attached the results? I have no idea if the temperatures of OK?

 

So firstly the first question is: Are the temperatures OK for what you can see?

 

2nd question is: I want to overclock if the above is OK and I've been watching this video, should I go of this and see how it goes?

Your temps are perfectly fine and normal.  At the end of the day its the ambient temp and temp in your room that decides your coolant temp and your overall temps.

 

Do not run stupid synthetic tests.  Run Aida64 stability test and check in the GPU as well and let her run and now go check your load temps.  Your idle temps are normal and so are your load temps.  People are blinded with water cooling thinking if they have 2 rads and EK block this and that ,, that your temps will be 40's c on full load lol.  I mean the money you spend, that is whatw you should get in return.  I can cool your system with a Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro and get the same temps your having now with your EK cooling solution.

I absolutely love your rig, very nice looking build.  It honestly makes me want to get into custom loop cooling (mostly because I like to build and tinker).  Your temps are fine, I mean I have seen lower at stock, but I have seen higher.  Similar to where I was at stock with stress testing.  Go for an all core 5.0 to start following a guide then go from there.  You certainly have a set up that can handle some heat

Thank you- It's turned out better than I expected. First hardline watercooled system I've done so I am happy. Just waiting on my custom cables to come.

Within AIDA64, which settings should be ticked when running the tests?

Like I believe I said, make sure the GPU is ticked as well.  Let it run for 1 hour straight.  If no throttle or crash or freeze then its a stable system.

Hi,

 

Ok so I've done the overclocked using the following video:

 

 

Settings I have changed:

 XMP II Enabled

ASUS MultiCore Enhancement Disabled

CPU Core Ratio Sync All Cores

Radio 50

CPU Core/Cache Voltage Adaptive Mode

Additional Turbo Mode CPU Core Voltage 1.300

 

I run AIDA 64 with GPU and CPU selected as instructed and start the stress, however, the speeds will start at 5.GHz however after around 5 seconds drops to 4.5GHz, If I run Cinebench the clock in continuous, same with something simple like Unigine or 3dMark. Do I need to change more settings for AIDA to keep the clock at a constant 5GHz?

 

I've attached a small reference photo of Unigine running ( I know it's not a stress test)

 

 

Thanks,
