NZXT Kraken x61 Best Settings? Owners GTFIH

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What do you guys use? On Performance mode it simply sounds too loud. Silent is quiet and perfect, but when gaming the CPU is hitting 70C and around that (well it's still hot 90C around here, yeah , I know it's August but).

I was usually putting it on Performance mode when I stress tested (i.e. AIDA64) then after I was done using Silent mode to game and stuff, but like I said, now that the ambient temperature is pretty high, even gaming alone can heat the 5820K to about 70C's.

Is this OK? what settings do you guys use if its not? The CPU is 5820K @ 4.6GHz with 1.305vcore

I have an I7-6700K @ 4.7GHz and I found the optimal solution in this way. I set different values of speed to the pump and fans to get the best possible acoustic/thermal performance ratio.

You can find a good explanation in this video, along with some tests.
