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.
