Is there a way to improve custom loop cooling?

Just trying to shave a few c off my system. I have a I9 9900k overclocked to 5.1 ghz at 1.29v, and a rtx 2080 ti oc bt around 100 mhz. All on a custom loop with a 360mm rad. It's hard lined and my case doesn't really permit for more rad or fans. My i9 is hitting 94c in realbench, and low 80s in games after a hour. For benchmarking I got the i9 to 5.3 ghz and it ran ok at 1.32v. I was wondering if there is any way I can bring the temp down? I use kryonaut paste.

Besides increasing the fan speed, getting better fans, or adding radiators, not really. Depending on what radiator you have you could try to find a better cooling/thicker radiator.

The 9900K simply isn't a cool running CPU at any clock speed. At least if Intel put toothpaste under the IHS you could delid it for better temps. With solder, though, the risk is too great that you'll wreck the die.

Best thing to do would be more rad space if you are overclocking, you can try to see if your system is stable with less voltage to try and optimize the overclock as much as possible.

Yeah I know. I was excited about the soder but no I realize its crap.

I could add one, it would be very tight. Rest of the rad is blocked by the GPU and psu cover.

the only thing you could really do other than add those rads, if you are keeping the same case and dont want to step down the overclock in any way would be to ramp the fans up or get better fans. idk how much space you have but you could maybe get a thicker radiator or push-pull fans

Lower your room temp. Open a window, it's winter. 

For the 5.3 ghz my room temp was 43 f. It still hit 98c

Lower your overclock. ;) Not worth it for such an expensive CPU. You won't notice the difference. 

 

You could technically add a rad to the OUTSIDE of your case, although it'd be.... ugly. 

 

If you're going to do that, you may as well put the rad outside a window.

I know I could fit 1 more 120mm fan the rad at the top. I just dont know how much that will help.

The easiest solution would be to buy better fans on the rads. Although you won't really see THAT much difference.

If you really want more cooling power, you could exterior mount the pump/res, and put a super thick 120/140mm rad on the back fan space. That might also allow room for another rad up top lol if you really want to do that also.

That's not a bad idea. I might just drill a few holes and add soft tubing to 2 external 120mm rads...

I might be external mounting my pump/res just to keep the inside a little more open. My case is laughably poorly designed, imo.

Increased mounting pressure tends to yield significant results. If you feel confident that the cold plate can be mounted more firmly without any board damage, gaining 5C normally is as simple as shimming the springs on the screws. If using paste, there is a chance the paste will squish out enough to make thermals worse.

So I was thinking about mountng a stand to the front of my case. 120mmx360mm. Mount 3 static pressure fan to it and seal it to the front of the case. Think that would help? Powerbit all by USB.

I really would like to beat my single GPU firestrike score. I'm a pretty good overclocker, but I'm limited by heat right now. This is at 5.2 ghz.

Normally for gaming you hardly need that much power on CPU - lower your OC ,this will also help the longevity of the hardware so keep that in mind.. just down a bit the OC. You still will be able to play 100% of games  at max anyway for the next 2 years at least. 


Can you post a pic of the whole case , maybe we can think of something.
