  1. @Levent@AbydosOne Which Raid level is the one that does A + B = C, Raid 5 I think? With that one, judging by math, I will lose 1/3 of total capacity right?
  2. So can I understand this as, all drive must have the same capacity?
  3. Lets say I have drives that are sized: 1TB, 1TB, and 4TB. Speeds at 7200RPM, 7200RPM, and 5900RPM respectively. (1TB are WD Blue, 4TB is Seagate Ironwolf) The 2 1TB drive are idle drives I have sitting around; the 3rd is not purchased yet and open for recommendation. I want to have 4TB of usable storage. 1) Would this work? Does all HDD have to be the same size/speed or brand? 2) How will the data will be parsed? which drive should be used for redundancy? (I understand that 2 1TB drives can not physically store the exact copy for the 4TB, which is why I asked question 1)
  4. Play around with voltage curve on MSI afterburner, it does wonders to temperatures.
  5. Which case will you be using? I would swap the AIO for an beefy air cooler, like: Noctua, Be Quiet, etc. For the monitor, it is within the budget? or is it on a separate budget?
  6. Okay so, I have reset everything back to normal, removing the voltage offset. I have change PPT to 105, TDC to 70, and EDC to 90. This granted me 73C max under cinebench load, but voltage still spikes to 1.465 briefly from time to time. However, it is better than stock, at stock it spikes to 1.498 or even to 1.512.
  7. Really? My friends 3600 runs max 65C under stock cooler with stock settings. His case is one of those glass cases with restricted airflow too.
  8. Can you download hwmonitor and check voltage? Stock 3600 with stock cooler should max out at 70C.
  9. @antoipod PBO did nothing for me for some reason, speaking of temps and voltage. I am running a u12s, motherboard is b550 tomahawk. @Npiet1 Yeah, I set an voltage offset for all cores, -0.125. Which is kind of heavy. Judging from cinebench r23 scores, I lost about 5% multi core, and around the same for single core. But with that setting, the CPU peaked at 80C, while normal use rarely exceeds 70C. Normal use includes gaming, web browsing, etc.
  10. Looks good for me. I wish the BitFenix whisper is readily available in NA, that thing is as rare as a GPU.
  11. I was just wonder, going too high will damage them, will going too low do the same? By borderline, I mean push it as far to being maybe unstable as possible.
  12. After some digging, I found that 5800x does run hot. People reporting 80C under stress tests, 40-50C idles, and 60+ while web browsing or doing something on the PC. I have revert all setting back to normal right now, with XMP profile enabled and disabled PBO instead of leaving it on auto, going to let the CPU decide what it wants to do.
  13. @IkeaGnomeSo I managed to get negative 23 to work as my highest, somehow. But for cinebench, I went from 14900s to 14300s. Temperatures are still in the 80s under cinebench. Score dropped but temp did not. I have an 240mm AIO, thinking of slapping it on the 5800x and see if it helps with temp. But from my pass experience, it barely out performs the u12s.
