  1. So the fan arrived today. This is not a proper test so take it for what it is. I ran cpu-z cpu stress for 5 minutes and watched ryzen master. With the stock fan config, I was hitting 73.7c and a peak speed of 4,055 all core I pulled the front nf-a15(counter clockwise) off of my nhd15 and replaced it with the new scythe ws 2400 (clockwise). Ran the same 5 minute run 72.3c and a peak speed of 4,087 all core. A minor bump in performance. But surprising considering I replaced a 140mm noctua with a 120mm. The nf-a15 might be a dated design or no
  2. Maybe I'll test them. Only problem is they are thicker, so I might need to make different clips or strap it on the heatsink another way. At which point I may want to just find a high performing 140mm
  3. That's what I'm doing. Swapping fans on a d15 tower.
  4. I'm actually using an nh-d15. I ordered a scythe wonder snail 2400 because it rotates in the opposite direction and I want to see if I can get similar results are lower rpms. It's mostly for fun. The arctic p series fans are great btw. Have some p14s in the front of my case.
  5. I didn't think of that. Thank you. This is what I was looking for. Thank you very much.
  6. On the Fuma 2, the fans spin in opposite directions. (clockwise and counterclockwise) This is supposed to create higher static pressure, allowing to run at lower speeds. To me it seems like it would just create more turbulence. I am wondering if there is some science behind this. I'd like to try it on my cooler with an opposite direction fan.
  7. So the Hotspot temperature isn't the same as the GPU die temperature. When Nvidia says 95-105 is the maximum safe temperature, they are talking about the GPU die. You have an FTW3 card, which means it has an array of thermal sensors. Hotspot in HWinfo is reporting the hottest recorded temp, which is probably the VRAM. Cyberpunk and other high graphical fidelity games will use most, if not all of your VRAM. You are probably just getting some heat soak on your VRAM. The VRAM runs a bit hot on 3000 series cards. What are your actual GPU temps?
  8. Yea order a 120mm for the back. 2 front as intake rear as exhaust
  9. No it's not too high. Your AIO is fine.
  10. You should get one for the back exhaust. What kind of case do you have?
  11. Nope. You can if you feel like it, but you're not going to see a big improvement.
  12. I'm late to the party but I just noticed this too. 8% on a 3700x
  13. Are you getting less than expected frame rates? That's how the cards work at stock. It seems like you are under the impression that if your card isn't smoking at 90c, you aren't getting all the performance out of it. Unless you get into manual overclocking. The card is going to regulate itself. It doesn't just ramp up to 90c, especially with a cooler that big.
  14. I think you mean your boost clock is coming down. You are promised the base clock of the card. Anything else is opportunistic based on power and thermals. What are your clock speeds at these temps? Also you might have a restricted case if you are hitting 73c with that card. Nvidia GPU boost explained
  15. Please try rolling back to either 4301 or 4202. Hopefully one of them will work. It is almost certainly the bios causing problems with the RAM and DCOP setting. I had a similar issue on my asus motherboard and 3700x If you need to just have the system run, you can probably have it run without DCOP enabled until a better bios revision comes out. Also worth replacing the CMOS battery.
