    Chris Redfield reacted to Tristerin in Games microstutter after mining with new RTX 3080   
    If I was in your shoes I would use DDU and remove all drivers and start fresh to see if that clears up the issue.
     
    What are temps like when microstuttering?  Maybe poor factory paste applied and its dry already?

    Chris Redfield reacted to Mark Kaine in Best way to stress test overclocked GPU?   
    So what's your temps then, *under load*(playing games etc)? 
     
    You need some fan control software from mb manufacturer, or set in bios (software would be preferable at least until you found a setting you want to keep) 
     
    True, but that was just an example what I think you can do... as said I don't think it's worth it personally, though I do think it's worth it to keep temps as low as somehow possible as that means less automatic downclocking and can at least make for a smoother experience.

    Benchmarks are always a solid choice, always fun to see how well you score too but then its just down to playing some games or whatever and seeing if you can see any artifacts or if it craches

    You need a variety of things to test OC.  Ive had things pass hours of AIDA and OCCT just to fail and have a system restart in cinebench.

    It is.  Like I said, it’s a lead chip.  I don’t know that it was even necessarily the chip I guess.  Could be a lead mobo.  Something is substandard somewhere.  All I got.

    This is true I think, though there is an older school opinion that if you want to slow the already slow deterioration of traces it shouldn’t be run above 75°c.  How true this is I don’t know.  Even using that old school approach though the 95°c thing should still last multiple years.  Possibly longer than the chip would even be used.  I’ve got an 18 year old chip in my basement that still works fine afaik.  Haven’t turned it on in a while.  Was it worth saving? Probably not.

    When I OCed my old 4470k system, I could get it up to 4.5ghz and have it pass an hour or two of both prime 95 and fur mark.  This wouldn’t keep it crashing in games though.  4.2ghz was a crash a week in games.  Much more stable but too much for me.  4.1ghz was a crash every three weeks or so.  It took 4.0ghz for true “this doesn’t happen” stability.  It is a lousy example of the chip though.

    The problem is there seems to be levels of stability, and people seem to sometimes use the term “rock solid stability” when they mean “stable enough for my use case” stability.  The question become what confidence level of what stability level would a test like that produce?

    Personal opinion is if it passes a few hours of realbench scores appropriately in benchmarks, doesn't throw any wheas, and doesn't crash when you're using it for what you use it for, it's fine

    It's possibly stable, even if you had tested with small FFT and it didn't crash, there would still be a possibility for crashing in other workloads, the most difficult one to test is transient responses, it's when the load on the CPU is fluctuating even if the CPU wasn't being utilized to 100%, keep using your PC and observe if any issues arise.

    Id argue no single test is enough to know if its stable, as all loads stress the cpu differently. 
     
    Prime95 is fully unreastic, its using normal instructions, and not doing anything weird.
     
    Id probably just use it as a main system as se iff you have weird issues.

    Chris Redfield reacted to Lipe123 in Pierced fins on AIO-is it still usable?   
    That fans have nothing to do with the cooler, they are just fans. If they don't spin you over tightened them or they are touching the rad or they are not getting power.
     
    Also if you put the pump on the sys-pump header and nothing in the CPU fan header your computer is going to think you have no cpu fan.
    So put the pump there or put one of the fans in the CPU fan header.
     
    I have no idea how that aio runs its fans so I can't tell you what is going on.

    uh dude, does you pc still turn on.. then its not fried.
     
    Also modern cpus can be run without any heatsink for a short bit with no issue.
    Double check that you are providing power to the aio properly, find the install manual for it and follow the steps.

    The above posters are correct. As long as only the fins are bent, you are fine. To be sure, connect the pump to a computer and let it run with the radiator in different positions. Put it on a paper towel and check if stays dry. If it's dry after an hour, I see no reason not to use it.

    If it bothers u, just use a pair of needle nose pliers or tweezers to straighten out the fins.

    Liquid passes through the center channels, not the fins. the fins are just there to give more surface area for dissipating heat. The tiny bend in the corner of the rad is of no consequence and wouldn't make an impact on temperatures. 
     
    You're fine to use it as is.

    If it's just the radiator metal you're fine.
    If something else was pierced like a housing / hose.. you have other problems to take care of.

    Chris Redfield reacted to Kalinez in Are these CPU temps too high on idle with AIO watercooler?   
    To be fair i 84c seems decent for the processor that you have. For what i know currently Intel is on the bit of the hot side on their CPU's so seems fine and as i said before ..... Games are not like synthetic benchmark and a recent processor as yours WONT be loaded at 100% all the time, so don't you worry, if gaming is what you're looking for - your CPU will be most likely between 60-75c
     What cooler do you use, where is mounted and which sides tubes are facing. I would say you should check that video i'm linking now since if your cooling is mounted wrong way maybe ( i say maybe) not all of your cooling liquid is reaching the pump - hence some extra heat on the CPU, not to mention early AIO "retirement".

    Nah 115c is thermtrip (cpu shuts down the board) It throttles first, if that doesn't work it touches 115c and boink shuts off. This is where you Hope the chip saves it'self. Seldom happens.
     
    So 5ghz and up territory would require possibly a custom loop. I like staying under 90c personally with my Intel chip especially at an overclock.
    A custom water loop wouldn't be a horrible idea for 5ghz club members. Nice full copper water block (This is important) and better radiator and pumps which make such a world of difference from using an AIO. 
     
    You can use the application called Cpu-z. You can also open the program more than once to view all the tabs at the same time.
    This program will also validate your overclocks. So this is your go to program for accuracy.

    84c is a very acceptable temperature.
    It's a 5ghz boosted chip. Why would you underclock it to 4ghz? 
     
    It won't throttle till it hits 100c....
    It's running pretty cool.
     
    What was the sustain clock speed under a full load? 4.7ghz?
