ok so for that CPU clock, would you say that is a normal temp?(I don't know) I am at 4Ghz and running at 54C
to me 4.5 is a high clock, something I will do here in a couple of years, kind of like adding 2 more video cards to my system, its all done in a effort to keep the system going as long as possible, without having to replace the system for the latest and greatest all the time. for me the average has been 7 years between builds.
ok so about 4LPM through the radiators, that is a good flow rate, is that with one or two pumps?
this build runs really well, after seeing the temps I knew that right off.
well I am still working on my 5-way, hope to have all the bugs worked out, before I need the video cards lol it never works out that way, there is always a push at the end to get it all up, running, and working right.
I'd say 73c as the average high for this unrealistic
test is fairly good. Keep in mind was running stress tests on both the CPU and GPU simultaneously for a solid hour, (AIDA64 + Firestrike Ultra 4k Preset looped). My 5930k will run at 4.5ghz stable all day with 1.225 volts but for extreme load I bump it to 1.300 volts to insure stability. Both my GPU's are locked at 1.255 volts under load to prevent any throttling from the, 'boost 2.0' and for this test I dropped the core from 1500mhz, (my 24/7 gaming settings) to 1400mhz just to ensure 100% stability for the unrealistic
I ran this CPU with both the Noctua NH-D14 and Corsair H100i GTX prior to setting up my water cooling loop. The Noctua had issues keeping things cool at both 1.225v and 1.300v for the unrealistic
stress-testing. Some cores were hitting a little over 90c. For the everyday load it was just fine running at either of those volts, only hitting a little over 80c. The Corsair H100i actually performs very similar to my current setup. Most AIO watercoolers these days perform admirably. The Corsair AIO would be able to run those volts under the unrealistic
stress keeping all cores around 85c, (which from what I've read is where you want to be with these CPU's).
Also, when I say, unrealistic
I'm referring to my setup. I know there are some real-world tasks that'll stress CPU's as hard as a stress-test like AIDA64 but for my usages I rarely load my CPU with anywhere near that amount of stress. So, it's unrealistic
in my world.
