I can see up to 15C variance on my playbench. Not in a case. The bottom of the mobo is open with 3K RPM in a small AC'd room.
Yea it's annoying.. when closing the backplate the socket temp even spiked to 130 wdf lol.
I think right now it's in pull, in push the temps were worsening.. grr, I wonder if with the backplate the temps would actually help with push, damn it sux, I need help lol.
Anyone using backsocket fan with a closed backplate ?? I got an idea though as I could put fans to bring air and 1 to extract in the backplate (phanteks primo got holes there..).. but damn, more slim fans to buy, and what if it doesn't work.. maybe I just buy cheap slim fans for that though the cheapest/best I can find.
ran a quick test with occt 63 core 73 socket.. not bad at all, I wonder how much with gaming now, socket might stay under 70, which I need to prevent throttle ugh.
It's sad because I was expecting to be able to overclock even more with all those new fans..not happening, not yet at least.
