  1. Cheers - swapped round today, fans sound like they're ramping to higher RPM but overall I think around 10c cooler on both gpu and cpu!
  2. option 1 being how I have it now but flipped fans option 2 being like this:
  3. Thanks - first ever AIO so still new. So should I just flip the fans round? i.e. keep them bolted to the same place but flip them, or should I put the fans on the bracket to the case and the rad onto the fans? i.e. as I have them now but flip the fans, or change them so it's fan then rad (rather than the now rad then fan)
  4. Fans are the same configuration as this - sticker side inward to the case https://www.tomshardware.com/uk/reviews/arctic-liquid-freezer-ii-280-all-in-one-cpu-cooler,6376.html
  5. Hi guys, Running: - ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (WIFI) - AMD Ryzen 5600X - Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280 AIO Cooler - AMD RX6800 16GB GPU - 16GB DDR4 3200Mhz ADATA XPG Gammix D10 - 1TB SAMSUNG EVO970 M.2 SSD - 1TB Seagate HDD - Fractal Design Meshify C case This is my first ever AIO, temps seem pretty cool, but believe the 5000 series cpus and 6000 series gpus run hot anyway. Getting 35-45c CPU idle, 70-80c load Getting 40-50c GPU idle, 75-85c load Currently I have the 280mm AIO on the front panel, 1 120mm fan exhaust at the top,
  6. From the latest tests I've seen, the 5600X out benchmarks its competitor at intel. You could probably stretch to the 6800XT rather than 5800XT if dropping ram down to 3600Mhz, and mobo down to a B550.
  7. I can't remember where exactly, might even have been Bitwit who said it. But just google "AMD AM5" and a whole raft on links come up showing it, and that zen4 will likely be AM5.
  8. I forgot to mention, I think AMD only promised to stick to AM4 socket for 5 years, and this was the 5th year, so they are potentially moving to AM5 next year, with DDR5 RAM. Although none of this has been confirmed.
  9. Point here that if you're going for a ryzen 5000 series, you should be aiming for 3200Mhz ram as the sweet spot. The 6800XT is on par with the 3080, but if you're budget constrained, you can look at the 6800 instead (although imo for like $70 more - i'd just try and squeeze the upgrade). Worth noting that AMD say that when a ryzen 5000 series is paired with a 6000 series gpu, they have performance boosts. If going ryzen 5000 series you're better off with a B550 board - basically the same price (you may need to update BIOS to ensure compatibility with ryzen 5
  10. Prob going for a B550 over X570 in my new build. Don't see the point for the increase in price. Plus if using a dedicated CPU cooler, don't see the point in chipset fan.
  11. Fair enough. I think from memory X570 gives you better ports and PCI4.0 - but 1. You don't really need PCi4.0 if just utilising 1 GPU and 2. B550 can handle 1Gb/s internet I think, X570 10Gb/s - who even has 1Gb as it is..
  12. Personally I wouldn't bother with X570 if you're not going to overclock and you're going to get a CPU fan like you are.
  13. 5000 ready just means its compatable, likely with a BIOS update. If the mobo was made before the 5000 release, its unlikely to have the BIOS update.
  14. Your budget seems greater than mine, but I'm going for 5900X and 6800XT.
  15. Nice build, better off with the 6000 series for GPU than 3000 series Nvidia for performance.
