1950X Conductonaut Fail ???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone

Has anyone used Conductonaut in conjunction with an EK waterblock on a Threadripper 1950X and had good results ?

I can't seem to even get to 3.8Ghz without my temps skyrocketing under stress testing...

Specs? Vcore? Temps? Need way more info....

I have the same block and its not really a problem with the block. I'm gonna guess your coolant temperature is probably too high, or poor TIM application. If the pump is running super low RPM that can contribute too. Could also just be you lost the silicon lottery.

I'm testing 4250MHz on my 1950X @ 1.5v (very preliminary) on asrock x399 taichi. I had an MSI x399 that I was using before it and it had hard freezing problems at 4200+ at 'random' times, maybe to do with board not respecting over power/temperature protections being disabled.

What are you temps like? The EK is known to run hot.

Temperatures honestly vary, depending on outside temperatures. Die temperature while idling is about 10C higher than coolant though, IIRC (coolant sensor isnt installed yet). EK block -could- be worse than other blocks, but i've only used the 1 block thus far. Really need 1 guy testing many blocks on the same hardware to get a conclusive result.

the blocks not a big issue I ahd one and went with the xspc and until you start loading more volts and higher overclocks it performs ok.
but
sustained heat it does not seem to like as much I think it may be a little restrictive but for me that was not much of a n issue just it in the loop with a pump that says it has 5.2 meter head pressure...I,m assuming that is high smile.gif so if the loop is restrictive then think the performance would suffer.

also seems radiator sizes etc makes a bit of a difference I only have a 420 rad but that seems to work ok for me.

I found the best tim coverage for me is slather the whole thing with a thinnish layer then a small birdcrap in the middle(at least with the kryonaut I used).

there are a few of my results
