I finally got my Arctic liquid freezer II 360 setup on my 8700k. It runs at 4.8 at 1.25v. I ran OCCT on SSE instructions, Small, Extreme. Got the below temps. Totally forgot to see what my NHD14 was doing before I switched it. That wa after about 10 min. It pretty much bounced between 83-85, but mainly stayed at 84. It felt high to me, its not dangerous or anything but I did expect lower. Ambient is around 21c.

2488097


Edit: Based on reviews I expected closer to 51-53c over ambient. But they were all newer chips so maybe mine just runs hotter?

Edit: Apparently i learned to google after making my edit. It seems there is a huge difference in heat between an 8700k and a 9900k cause of the solder vs TIM. So I think my results are actually good for my chip.

Yes that’s actually very good assuming you haven’t delided your chip. Mine used to hit the mid 90s before deciding on an h100i

Yeah not delidded. It took me a while but I found an anandtech review of the 8700k vs 9700k or whatever the equivelant 9 series was. THere was an 18c difference in temp, so I feel good. It was hitting 92 with AVX2 instructions but I don't ever use those so I don't care. Its like 75c max while gaming it seems like. Now I just need to setup a fan profile instead of running 100% all the time.

I would recommend de liding, it’s very easy to do, I lowers my temps almost 30 degrees

Seemed warm to me for a paltry 137w, but then I remembered the 8700K wasn't soldered.

So i'm gonna piggy back on this thread hopefully it works. I have the Arctic Liquid Freezer plugged into the fan controller in the Meshify 2. Its plugged intot he CPU fan header on it, then I plugged the fan controller into the CPU 1 fan header on my MOBO. I'm getting RPM Readings and its syncing all my fans properly it seems. I setup a fan curve so that its not always running at 100%, currently it chills around 25% during work, but I wasn't sure if that affects the pump or anything. I have zero clue how these AIOs work.

Edit: NVM, It says in the techspecs that the pump is PWM controlled. So my assumption now is that as long as I'm getting the right cooling I need my fan curve is good.

you can set your pump speed in the bios on the fan preset its on to 100%. They don't make much if any noise. The pumps are PWM controlled but you can set it to 100%
