  1. I cannot run the RGB behind the computer since i have to use an RGB controller. I may just leave the controller inside since i havnt changed the color from the rainbow effect at all yet.. .... After new PSU Before new PSU
  2. UPDATE: So i bought a decent cooler and am getting 40-60C now :) The problem with the crappy cooler was a terrible thermal paste job, it ended up only spreading to 2/3 when i look at the cooler almost 1 of the 2 heat pipes wasn't covered at all :/
  3. yup cleaned it first too, but i did less this time since last time i did too much, once i get off work im going to do it again and see what the outcome is.
  4. i just installed my i76700k from my i5-6400, i don't know much about cooling, i know my cooler is not the best its a coolermaster 2 heat pipe one crappy fan The i5-6400 was idling in 30s now the i7-6700k is solid 45C+ bounce to 60s on idle, im scared to game on it, im going to redo my cooler and see if that could be the culprit any thoughts? is the jump from 65W to 90sW that much more heat?

  6. sorry panicking and i dont know what to call the front pannel connectors nor really know what happened
  7. well it turned on, i upgraded form a i56400 to a i76700k, and the heat difference is insane
  8. it was off i put the power button cables idk the correct term ther tiny pin ones that connect the case's on button to the MOBO incorrectly and it poped, in prosseces of putting cooler back on and crossing fingers
  9. so i plug the power on and other stuff in wrong spot. it just turned on now to redoo cooler and check iw as looking at capacitors
  10. single POP roughly where the power on button is and now nothing, reseated everything how screwed am i?
  11. you are not supposed to do EVERYTHING linus does lol
  12. MAYBE when i get the next rig. . . . no trust in myself
  13. Brand new sitting here for a week, my hope was it will work great for my 6700k and future ryzen rig down the line
  14. Yeah i coulda rebuilt my rig for a Ryzen for $50 more, but i was gifted this I5-6400 for free and have been gaming on it so i didnt want to get a new mobo and the processor will go back into its stock case and become my 6th server And it seems to be pretty forward compatible so its my 2 year down the line upgrade cooler.
