    StarsMars got a reaction from frozensun in Do I need better AIO then H100i,3900x users   
    No it's not too high. Your AIO is fine.

    StarsMars reacted to BuckGup in Why do Corsair AIOs suck?   
    There's essentially like 2 cooler designs AIOs use. They mostly are all Asetek due to some copyright dealio. I personally don't think Corsairs AIOs are trash. Maybe not top shelf but they are also inexpensive and have a hardware warranty

    You got plenty of headroom before your cpu start throttling down

    So same performance/even better in certain areas but a BOATLOAD cheaper. Why the changes?
     
    Board: No need for such an expensive board you aren't using any of the features it has so I put in a EXCELLENT cheaper board
    Cooler: The fuma 2 is a couple degrees behind a nhd15 but a lot cheaper and just as quiet so no reason not to take it really. Also better ram clearance.
    Storage: The samsung qvo lineup has REALLY SLOW drives to the point where hdds are faster with a longer load of data. So I opted for one of the best sata drives the mx500. I also picked the sn750 instead of the evo because you aren't doing anything that needs such high speeds in a drive so why not save money on a not really worse drive.
    Ram: Cheaper no performance difference
    Psu: Equally good psu for less
    Fans: The BIGGEST money saver here. The arctic P series fans have been tested and beat the regular F noctuas in both cooling and lower noise that and they are A LOT cheaper 5 for the price of 2 noctua's.
     
    So yeah saved you about 450$ for a pc that is at worst just as good but really will be overall better for less money.
     
    Oh yeah for windows just get a 3$ ebay key and call it a day. They work fine and forever as these are oem keys.

    StarsMars reacted to dylman1411 in Does airflow in the case help in reducing the temperature of CPU if its already being liquid cooled?   
    If the fans attached to the radiator are sucking air in from outside then no. If the radiator fans are set up as an exhaust pulling air from inside the case through the rad and out then yes.

    StarsMars reacted to dizmo in Should I risk getting an aio for my first build?   
    If you're worried about it at all, just get an air cooler.

    there are much better options out there

    If you want budget, don't go noctua. They are one of the highest priced cooler companies out there.

    StarsMars reacted to mariushm in Exceeding boot drives rated write life ok?   
    So basically wear leveling count = 455  - that's probably average wear leveling across flash memory cells ... some blocks will probably be a bit higher, others a bit less.
    Like the wikipedia link says, the erase cycles is within 1000....3000 for TLC used in drives like yours
     
    The rest looks good... a single block was invalidated and had data moved somewhere else (you see that in "Reallocated Sector Count" and "Used Reserved Block Count (total)" )

    StarsMars reacted to mariushm in Exceeding boot drives rated write life ok?   
    It's more or less like this ... The flash memory is arranged in blocks, for example 24 MB chunks. It's not the writes that wears out a SSD, it's the erases of blocks to make the pages inside the blocks writable again that causes damage to those blocks. 
    They have an estimate of how many erases can be done on blocks until they're no longer reliable, until they have difficulty reading back data from pages reliably, with a low enough error rate. Once there's too many errors and block is deemed too unreliable, the block becomes read only and in theory the controller will copy the data to another block and mark this unreliable block so it won't be used anymore.  
    Some number of erases varies depending on die quality and lots of other things, some blocks could last 3500 erase cycles, some could last 4000 ... the manufacturer will most likely be conservative and calculate warranties with a number like 3000 for example. 
     
    Your particular SSD ... 75 TB on 250 GB is more or less 300 erase cycles ... some blocks will be erased more , some less ... if it's TLC memory, I would say at least 500 erase cycles is a safe number so I'm not surprised the drive did 105 tb ... that's still less than 450 erase cycles.
     
    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_memory#Write_endurance
     
    You'll see there 3D TLC NAND as in your SSD estimated to have between 1000 and 3000 erases per block, and if you check the SMART data for your drive, your erase counter is probably in the 500 range.

    Basically what that means is it is now in the untested for ranges so it could fail whenever or keep going for years. They do go a fair bit past their rating but you are already a fair bit past it :p. Using it as a scratch drive or something?
     
    Basically keep a backup of the drive for when it fails.

    StarsMars reacted to Chris Pratt in Question about the chip shortage   
    That's technically an entirely different issue. That's 32nm, and it's not really any more constrained than it ever was. The problem for car manufacturers, in particular, is that they vastly underestimated demand, assuming the pandemic would kill car sales. Instead, demand for cars is actually higher than normal, but they've already lost their fab allocation. In other words, it's a self-inflicted wound, caused not by a true shortage, but from shorted orders.

    or

    though depends what you mean by cost-efficient. Scythe Fuma 2 or Noctua NH-D15 are sometimes also considered cost efficient, but they just cost more.

    StarsMars reacted to Zaxan in 5800X air cooling at 155mm   
    Ah shit. Ignore me. I was talking about the Fuma 2 but wrote Mugen 2 for some reason.
     
    I bought the Fuma 2.
     
    The problem with the H115i pro that I had was the shit build quality. It was a pain in the arse getting the screws out of the case again because they're all threaded (they just melted under no pressure at all) and they wouldn't have been useable again.
     
    The pump was also starting to make more noise than it should despite it being orientated correctly for its entire life.
     
    Then iCUE is utter shite so I'm glad not to be dealing with that, too.

    I think you're safe to leave it on. Just monitor your temps with HWinfo during normal use conditions and see where you're at.

    StarsMars reacted to LogicalDrm in Getting worse temperatures after switching from "silent" case to an airflow case.   
    You should move the fan from top-front to front-bottom. Right now, that fan isn't doing anything. Or rather its moving air coming from front-top straight out of the case. And at the same time, the front-middle fan is barely getting air to GPU.
