yes, thats why i say it is not hard for 9700k to reach 180w.
and 180w for 9900k is like a joke.

Well, they did update the bios on this Z370 Gaming 7 so it will accept 9 series CPUs. Also noticed the VRM small fan is set to VRM MOS temp on chassis fan 2 header and you can change this in Smart Fan settings, so this can actually be played with to come in earlier if needed. The heatsInk for the VRMs was seated correctly also. Got it sitting in an old case just to test out the 9700K and some other stuff this weekend.

Lol, I did run Prime 95 on this Gamjng 7 and the VRMs went to 122C after 10 minutes or so. I could touch the heat sink and not feel much heat like it should...so I pulled my Gaming 5 heat sink (same part-different sleeving) and threw in some thermal pads from my EVGA RTX air cooler laying around...used some sticky thermal pads that were about twice the thickness of the stock pads. Ran Prime 95 again and now it’s about 86C after 10-15 minutes and the heatsInk is damn hot now, so those stock pads are definitely not working.




Also note, this is a Gaming 7 Optane which is a later release of the Z370 Gaming 7, so you would think Gigabyte would have corrected this heatsInk thermal pad by now, but I guess not. This isn’t a Revision 2, but it uses a different bios from the non Optane model, which I found out yesterday trying to update this mobo....also, this Optane does speed up regular HDDs.... like a lot. Really impressed with it so far.

lol, good mod dude.
i remeber i have posted some pic about z370 g7 optane right here when it was just launched, they have not changed that.

bear in mind that when mosfets temps reach 90c then the little fan under the i/o shield will be triggered. so in your case it is stock 1mm pad @ 122c WITH FAN TURNING ON vs 2mm 3rd party pad @ 85c WITH FAN OFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Is that Prime95 run with AVX? That is an impressive improvement, I might have to give it a try. I did play around with the removing the LED shrouds covering the VRM and saw a ~2C improvement, though I am currently running my modified VRM blocks. Though one of my issues is I am running a 2x360mm rads (top and front) as all intake and I have 1x140mm radiator in the rear. So what little air does get to the VRM's won't be all that cool. Granted normally I won't run AVX loads and high CPU usage items like Prime95, so this might allow me to ditch the water cooling of the VRMs.

I ran it with Prime95 Ver 294, Build 8. Those temps were actually in the case with no real direct air flow at the heatsInk. I have since removed the EVGA thermal pads and now have Arctic 1.5mm 6mKw thermal pads in place and now have the CPU with a waterblock, so the load is going to be higher now. I’m doing a test now with Prime to see how high it goes with the CPU water cooled now, but I Leary recall it going only to 82C a few days ago. As for all the other tests and programs I’ve ran, the VRMs only go this high in temps with Prime. Never seen CPU or VRMs go high temperatures with any other apps I use.

You used a 9700K? So my 9900K will run hotter with HT. What voltage and frequency did you have?

It’s running stock settings on the 9700K currently for testing, as I wanted to see how it does before overclocking it with a WC block on the CPU. Have to manually overclock it soon to see how much hotter it may or may not go.

This was the temperatures just now running on performance fan settings about 12 minutes in.



I now have the fans at full speed setting on all fans (3 120 fans on 360 radiator sitting above the mobo, on one front, side and rear case fan) and this is the temps at 30 minutes.


This is the current thermal pads on the heatsInk now.


Also, AFAIK, the VRMs on the Gaming 7 go to 135C before hitting thermal throttling, so it’s not like they are close to maxed out.
