  1. Heat up the thermal paste by running a few minutes of cinebench/prime95 and then it's easy to remove (also still by gently twisting back and forth). I yanked my 3700x out of the socket and it stuck to the cooler. Luckily no damage to the pins or socket.

    Cpu Temp

    Assuming he still has the cpu that he created a post about in march/april, it's an i5-6500, so nothing to worry about.
  3. Damn that is one very expensive power supply. I'd just suggest this: https://www.newegg.ca/corsair-rmx-series-rm850x-cp-9020200-na-850w/p/N82E16817139272 It will all work just fine, but you don't need 1000W with that build. You can save about 70 dollars by going for the RM850x 2021 edition. Also note that you already get 3 fans with the case and 3 fans with the H150i (all 6 are RGB), do you need the extra ML120 fans? Buying 6 while you already have 6 is VERY expensive and will not get you better temperatures, just the looks that all fans are equal. If those looks are wort

    Most likely you don't. The 220T has great airflow and if the cpu temperatures were already fine, it's going to be (most likely) slightly better than before. You can spend extra on a better cooler to lower the temperatures, but would it be worth a few degrees?
  5. What resolution are you using? At 1440p and higher, the 3700x is just fine. If you're using 1080p, it might hold you back a few % but nothing to worry about. Spending more will not yield you double fps.
  6. Maybe a Cooler Master Hyper TX3/212 or BeQuiet Pure Rock Slim (2). Or basically any tower like that would work a lot better and more quiet and won't kill the budget.
  7. Well, what is your budget? Going with a slightly larger heatsink will definitely keep it more quiet. The i30 would work just fine, however, it's almost the same as the stock cooler which should be dirt cheap, so don't pay more than 10 USD/EUR for it.
  8. There is currently no ATX power supply with built-in battery, however, you can easily buy a small UPS that can power an idling pc for a few minutes to allow for graceful shutdown or to prevent shutdowns with few second power interruptions. I wouldn't run it on a gaming pc or gaming console to just continue playing though. If the power interruption lasts longer than a few minutes, it may as well lose power and shutdown. Should power be lost, better to safely turn off your devices as quickly as possible.
  9. You have a thread asking the EXACT SAME thing, why start a new one?
  10. The R5 3600 is a 65W chip, anything you by will probably cool it better than the stock heatsink As stated in the conclusion of GN: the audience for this cooler is someone who buys it for the aesthetics, it's obviously going to be better than stock heatsink and definitely looks a lot better. NZXT is also a good brand, so can't go wrong with that.
  11. In the end it's still your PC. Here's a benchmark/review from GamersNexus: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3304-nzxt-kraken-m22-review-benchmark Quote from the article:

  13. 92C is hot but still "fine" by silicon standards. An AIO or decent air cooler will definitely help, however, do think about an air cooler for the same price, as they are generally better and more quiet. I personally love the BeQuiet! Dark Rock 4 and install it in almost every gaming build for friends/family. It's not too tall and it's completely quiet. (I also can't stand the idle pump noise of AIOs so generally avoid them)
  14. Do you think it's too hot? What's the temperature under 100% load?
  15. Do you have the AIO already? What cooler do you currently have? Generally, an equally priced air cooler will outperform the 120mm AIO. If you want aesthetics, the AIO is the way to go (for most people).
