ASUS (not Gigabyte)

Just want to ad that I have gotten the Corsair Hydro Series™ H100i RGB PLATINUM and I have clocked the CPU to 5 GHz without any problem.


It is not spinning up with a stress test. I might go higher, but I think I stay here at the “safe” side. Intel has put 5 GHz as a “you shall be able to clock this safely. Guaranty”.

So, it was the Cooler Master cooler that was not doing his job, even tho It had great fans from Corsair. In AIO water coolers, the pump has a lot to do with performance.

If you were going socket-2066 with high-end i9 CPU, you'd need large-radiator water-cooling.

Noted, Jim, thanks.

I'll be okay I think. Going for a Socket 1151 i9 CPU with a Noctua NH-U14S cooler.

And I'm going for a full tower case now in the hope that it will aid with cooling... Could fit more 140mm fans if need be.

 

cheers

Trigger Pulled

Case
BE QUIET! DARK BASE PRO 900 FULL TOWER GAMING CASE
Processor (CPU)
Intel® Core™ i9 Eight Core Processor i9-9900K (3.6GHz) 16MB Cache

Get Just Cause 4, PUBG & More w/ select Intel CPUs!

Motherboard = ASUS® ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING: ATX, LGA1151, USB 3.1, SATA 6GBs, WIFI - RGB Ready
Memory (RAM) = 32GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2666MHz (2 x 16GB)
Graphics Card = INTEGRATED GRAPHICS ACCELERATOR
1st Storage Drive = NOT REQUIRED
1st M.2 SSD Drive = 500GB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2, PCIe NVMe (up to 3500MB/R, 3200MB/W)
DVD/BLU-RAY Drive = NOT REQUIRED
Power Supply = CORSAIR 650W TXm SERIES™ SEMI-MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET
Processor Cooling = Noctua NH-U14S Ultra Quiet Performance CPU Cooler
Thermal Paste = COOLER MASTER MASTERGEL MAKER THERMAL COMPOUND
Sound Card = ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)
Wireless/Wired Networking = 10/100/1000 GIGABIT LAN PORT (Wi-Fi NOT INCLUDED)
USB/Thunderbolt Options = MIN. 2 x USB 3.0 & 2 x USB 2.0 PORTS @ BACK PANEL + MIN. 2 FRONT PORTS
Operating System = Genuine Windows 10 Professional 64 Bit - inc. Single Licence [MUP-00003]

The company I am buying the above from does not have my preferred options for the main data drive of the graphics card so I am sourcing those from elsewhere. Graphics card will more than likely be an ASUS GeForce GTX 1050Ti ROG STRIX 4GB GDDR5. I am considering using my Samsung 1TB 850 Pro out of my laptop for te data drive but that may change, but it has to be a Samsung Pro.

 

So, the waiting begins...
