  1. Higher ambient can raise required fan speeds relative to whatever fan speeds would've otherwise worked. It alone doesn't dictate a required fan speed.
  2. Different ram usually works but you may have better luck with more similar sticks. Running at the lower speed of the 2 kits should work.
  3. Using the top for exhaust seems more balanced and would probably cool the graphics card better but the cpu worse. The graphics card is usually more sensitive to temps so I'd prioritize that.
  4. Have you tried lowering fan speeds? Budget?
  5. What case and ram are you using? Where are you shopping / located? Budget?
  6. The SickleFlow Red only has a 4pin pwm fan cable. The LEDs will light up as long as the fan is powered which just requires a standard fan header.
  7. I don't see how ambient conditions are any more important if at all. High ambient temps would just raise needed fan speeds across the board. Effective fan speeds for lowering temps and minimizing noise is dependent on the fans available, where they are placed, and the components that need cooling. For example, a blower graphics card relies more on fresh intake whereas an open air card relies more on exhaust fans for cooling, In this example, raising exhaust fan speeds for a blower style graphics card needlessly increase noise without as much benefit. Some fans are also noisier than other
  8. I don't recommend CAM for monitoring temp especially if you're having issues with it. HWinfo is better. Those aren't very high temps but the fan rpm is pretty high. Lower your fan speeds if it's too noisy. Make sure to quote a post or tag a member when replying or else they won't get a notification that you replied to them.
  9. The 5800x can take advantage of more cooling with more boosting. Did CB R23 scores change?
  10. Thanks for the work you've put into this! It's working on the Msi B450M Bazoooka V2 and Asus Z170 Deluxe. Also works on ASRock B450M Pro4.
  11. 4.3ghz seems to be on the lower end of what people have reached with your board. Considering your temps, aiming for 4,4 or 4.5ghz is reasonable.
  12. ~45c isn't hot. For example, the Seagate ST3300555SS and Fujitsu MBA3147RC lists an operating temperature range of 5-55c. https://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/disc/manuals/sas/100433694a.pdf https://www.fujitsu.com/downloads/COMP/fcpa/hdd/mba3xxx_datasheet.pdf The reason why speeds are lower is probably here.
  13. Load temps and pump / fan speeds? Where are you shopping / located? Budget?
  14. The Nexus 2 fan hub doesn't seem necessarily. Use it or not depending on your preference. I recommend whichever simplifies your cable management. You can plug the pump header into aio_pump and cooler fans into cpu_fan and cpu_opt and case fans into the cha_fan headers. If it makes it easier, you can plug the Nexus 2 into a cha_fan header and the case fans into that.
