    frozensun got a reaction from Apollyon2020 in Upgrading from i9 9900k?   
    It's like you ask:
    Guys is it worth upgrading from Labourghini Hurriccane to Aventador.
    Dude be happy with what you have,that is a beast of CPU,many like me have old FX-8120 ūüėČ

    frozensun got a reaction from Mark Kaine in how to lower temp on RTX 2080 S?   
    Well my friends,I've tried what I could do,installing fan blowing to backplate,installing fan blowing directly to graphics card,and maybe temp lower only 1¬į C.
    I have Zotac Amp Extreme edition and probably 80¬į C is normal for this model but I want it to run around 70 ¬į C and don't care about performance lost with few fps lower since I play older titles and fps >100.
    So I suppose only way to undervolt or increase fan speed,but I don't like gpu fan noise.
    How do I do undervolt and which values to set?
    I suppose only move the power slider in MSI AB to like hmm 80 %,dunno...
    I mean 80 C is maybe perfectly fine for it,but guys trust me,I can't even hold finger for a split of a second on a card.
    One fan is set by stock with 200 mm blowing into the card and second one was set blowing to the backplate and nothing not evne single 1 degree lower.

    To your original desire of controlling the temperature, just use the temperature limiter. That's what it is for. Anything else is just complicating matters.
     
    With games, it depends on the game, some offer fixed fps, some offer V-sync or fractional rates (only useful on high refresh displays). I think there is a setting somewhere in nvidia's driver to pick any number you want but I never used it.

    Power limit basically limits your max boost clocks on modern GPUs, so essentially it doesn't boost as high due to limiting maximum power draw of the card - this probably should lower the temps, but also performance.

    Temp limit means that the card will target 70C for instance and it will downclock itself to maintain that temperature threshold. Both work similarly in practice, but the settings themselves affect different aspects of the card. There should be no artifacting no matter how you set those. You can set temp limit first and go from there, leave the power limit as it is preferably.

    I mean temperature limit. You want to reduce temperatures. There is a slider to do exactly that. Use it. Now an annoying feature of MSI afterburner is sometimes it links the temp to the power limits, you might have to click the thing to the side to break that connection.

    So is cold, if it's unreasonable. Both are acceptable as long as they're running within spec - those parts are engineered to sustain such temperatures. For instance AMD states that their latest 5000 series can run at 90C, even up to 95C on the 5600X which is within spec and by design to allow for higher performance.
    That's simply not true, no component on the GPU has its temperature threshold below 80C. You need to understand this is all by design.

    On my version of Afterburner Temp. Limit is in degrees Celsius - what % are you talking about?

    frozensun got a reaction from For Science! in NGenuity issues   
    Ok guys.I've updated firmware with exe file that HyperX sent me over e-mail.
    Then I removed previous version of NGenuity and installed current beta version.
    It took me 3 hours to download and install latest version cut interaction with Microsoft Store sucks so bad.
    And I got the same issue,didn't want to recognize both of the devices.
    So I got an e-mail again from HyperX wanting me to remove some software cuz for some reason their software has conflict with other apps (which sucks).
    So the reason why it didn't work is cuz of damn Asus AI Suite,I uninstalled it and voila.
    But when I ran again NGenuity it asks me again to flash firmware.
    Wtf???I flashed the firmware with previous installation.
    So I sent an e-mail to HyperX asking why does it want me to update firmware again if I updated with .exe file they sent me,and they didn't respond at it.
    So my friends should I click UPDATE?

    frozensun got a reaction from For Science! in NZXT Phantom 820 bottom filter installation issue   
    I cleaned the bottom filter,removed by just popping it out easily.
    But now I can not install it back it,this mechanisam simply won't hold it in place.
    I'm uploading video so you can see,and I will put two pics,as you can see nothing is broken.
    You will see in a video.
    Maybe there is some sort of trick,but I tried more then 2 hours to install it back in a place but it simply pops out.

    It's a bit of a niche item, I wouldn't expect to be able to find it too easily if you only have one outlet.

    Don't go with G3 since most of the members here already know it has some protection issues.

    That is your opinion,I don't agree.
    Actually I don't know if the fans exist who push air axially.
    Air is pushed in Y-axis,which means vertically.
    Besides even if that is true,I can barely feel the air through radiator touching my hands when I place it at the top of the rad.
    Maybe I am wrong and someone will correct me.

    frozensun reacted to bowrilla in do I need to change thermal paste on 3900X?   
    Question is: was it mounted already for a prolonged time or was it basically at the time you've tried mounting it? If the paste is fresh and it wasn't fully mounted, it's okay (personally did that many times, I like to wiggle it on top a bit when doing that), if you've already had it mounted for weeks or longer, then you should have changed. In the latter case paste was probably already spread out thin and dried out a bit. The result could be some air pockets which is exactly what you'd want to avoid by using thermal paste.
     
    That being said, your temps are pretty okay and I would not expect anything beyond maybe (!) very low single digit gains. Zen2 runs hot and after all it's a 12 core CPU. I would personally stress test with Prime95 to determine the thermal limit of the setup. Anything below mid 80s is good, if it runs hotter, you might want/need to tweak some things. Since Prime95 is absolute torture you will not reach those thermals during regular use.
     
    Q-tips?! Don't! That cotton might just leave you with some fluff in the paste. You can a) just make a dot or a pattern on the IHS and let the cooler spread it out or b) use some plastic or cardboard to spread it out thin.

    frozensun reacted to SpookyCitrus in I (almost) burnt AIO pump->fans cable :(   
    Looks like it was possibly just rubbing on the ram and or it's dust from the computer, as I am seeing dust build up in the pictures. It doesn't look like melting plastic from the pictures. That's insulated wire either way it should be fine. But if you're really worried about it use a zip tie or something and move it away from the ram so it's not touching.

    frozensun reacted to Tristerin in I (almost) burnt AIO pump->fans cable :(   
    I understand.  Still not hot enough to melt wire insulation.  If there is damage it was either like that, or rub.
     
    However LED's can get very hot, up to 100c - but the insulated wires we use can take up to 200C+ and they dont melt, they char.  (quick googling around)
