Alright. Thank you very much

Ya Corsair's software has always been... quirky. I think the way link is set up now is the fans change rpm based on the temp of the waterblock, or some sensor on the cooler.

Ya OCCT showed me each core,they were all fine I think corsair link is just screwed up with getting the package temp or something because it is reporting a block temp the would coincide with the temps OCCT, AiSuite, and the BIOSZ were reporting. Not the 113C that link was telling me lol the CPU would be dead.

Forum Topic "Ryzen 2700x 85C Idle"

coolguy562 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Bro really? Did you read any of the comments? The CPU is fine, the pump is fine, I think corsair link just doesn't like something about the motherboard and is being given a wrong reading.

Forum Topic "Ryzen 2700x 85C Idle"

coolguy562 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

The temps are slowly increasing but they are not the current 113C being shown by corsair link, so there probably lies the problem.

Oh ya sorry. Have it running right now all six cores range from 32C - 41C. Granted it's been running for only 5 minutes, I got busy and forgot to install It. I haven't used this program before and set the test mode to medium data sets. Should. I have done large data sets?

Yes this was my old cooler so I used MX-5. The plastic cover literally doesn't let you screw it in if it's on, it covers the mounting bracket and only will go on if the Intel bracket is on the cooler. and yes it is tightened down. I think it's just a problem with corsair link or a temp sensor. Cause the bios seems to be getting the right temps and AiSuite 3 (the software for the mobo) is giving me the right temps. It the CPU truly was in the 80s to mid 90s then the exit tube from the block would be heating up which it isn't. Also the block itself would be heating up and the temp sensor on that would be showing an increasing temp which it isn't, it stays around 30C.

No the pump is fine. It plugged into the AIO pump header on the mobo and reacts accordingly when I change the profile for it.

Will do. I also ran a burn test that was in furmark. Link report the cpu getting up to 105C. I also installed AiSuite and it's giving me normal temps but when I ran the "fan xpert" thing in it it hardlocked the system to the point where I could only. flip the switch on the psu to turn it off. so I think I'm going to uninstall that.

I know, according jonnyguru it's a great psu. The system is 5 years old. The thing is it doesn't just shut down it turns back on, is that a thing that can happen

I was thinking about trying to hook up my psu to his system but it would be such a pain since I have mine under a shroud I made. But there's no way csgo is demanding more power than wolfenstein 2 is. Haven't tried swapping ram sticks so that might be the next course of action.

OK, I was just reading through the thread and it may just be that your gpu is underpowered. Try turning some texture settings down to around medium.

Everything still running good? Also 60C isn't too hot. The CPU won't start thermal throttling and eventually shut itself off till it gets to the 90s I believe, definitely not 60s.

Have you already purchased these parts? If not get Ryzen instead, it's so much better. The platform you are using in your build is super old and there is no point in buying those parts. A current gen pentium will perform better.

Forum Topic "Gaming Laptop Within the Next Week"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 22 months ago

I just got the blade a week ago. It's a great all around laptop. Haven't really gamed on it but I did load up csgo and it does get loud. When it's not u Der load the fans don't even spin so it's silent which is nice. When it does warm up the fans don't make much noise at low rpms however every so often they'll spin up for a few seconds to cool stuff off the quiet back down. as dot know if I'd consider the stealth like you mentioned because I believe it doesn't have a gpu (I may be wrong).

Forum Topic "System won't boot, no cpu led on"

coolguy562 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Although I'm going away for the weekend I would still like to bounce ideas off of you guys. At this point I'm thinking I might just rma the CPU. I don't really know if it is the CPU or mobo, but the mobo still appears to be working, power gets to the fans and the CPU error led.

Updates on what I've done: I removed the cmos battery and left that out while I removed the CPU and reinstalled it to see if that would fix anything. It didn't, of course. I've also removed ram and tried separate sticks, nothing changed.

No problem, if you have them connected to your motherboard you can download a program like speedfan to monitor the rpms of all the fans in your system and control them if you want.

Forum Topic "New Case Fan Setup Issue"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Since you are saying it's airflow noise and not noise coming from the motor, turning down the fan speed could help but not a whole lot without sacrificing airflow. What you're hearing is most likely turbulence. You said the fans are blowing through the hard drive cages which have a bunch of holes in them. The air flowing through the holes creates "streams" of air which can interfere with each other. So that is most likely what you're hearing on top of the air slamming into the HDD cage where there is not a hole.

Forum Topic "What is the Serial ATA Controller and why can I eject it?"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Ya that should be your hard drive. I believe when I was on win8.1 it was there. I tried clicking it one day but it doesn't eject it because "drive is in use". So you don't need to worry about clicking it by accident and breaking things.

I just want to know when the OP even stated that it was a gaming build.... For all you know it could be an office pc or a htpc. Yes slim cases have their quirks but that is to be expected and certainly doesn't make them awful.

Forum Topic "Is my pc working as well as It should be? low gpu usage + lower than optimal fps"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Ya that's fine. That's about the temps I'm getting with my h100i gtx on a semi quiet fan curve.

Forum Topic "Is my pc working as well as It should be? low gpu usage + lower than optimal fps"

coolguy562 2 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

Your temps are perfectly fine. With the new Pascal architecture I believe (I may be wrong) that it won't start thermal throttling until it hits 90C, I generally want to keep it below 80-85. With the CPU I believe it's around 80C, again I try to keep it below 70C. With the RAM, it's not telling you your total RAM but rather how much RAM is being used by the system as a whole (not just used by the game). So with league running plus all of your background programs running, etc. you are using 7400MB of your system RAM out of your available 16000MB.

Forum Topic "Is my pc working as well as It should be? low gpu usage + lower than optimal fps"

coolguy562 2 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

Ya, so combining both replies you sent me to this one.

Overall, it's safe to say everything seems normal in my rig performance is it not?

Yup, everything looks normal

check the links in a comment above

The YouTube links didn't work, sorry

GPU: uses 37% almost stable of gpu 1600 MHz and sits on 50 celsius degrees (also stable) which are 120 fahrenheit. CPU: 35-50 celsius degrees (which are 95 fahrenheit to 120) and uses 35-50% useage

I've never played league, mostly csgo. But from my understand it doesn't require many resources, like csgo. The usage numbers on your components are normal. Since league isn't very demanding it isn't going to peg your system to 100%. Same when I play csgo I'll maybe get 40% usage on my CPU and gpu. But then when playing ghost recon wildlands since it's a demanding game it'll peg my gpu at 100% and my CPU is around 65%

What is the MEM thing and what is the RAM thing?

MEM is your vram (the ram on your gpu) so your 1070 has 8GB of vram but since league isn't that demanding it'll only use about 1GB. When I'm playing wildlands at ultra it uses around 4.6GB or. vram. RAM is your system ram, so your 16GB.

what does the D3D9 stand for?

No idea, sorry :/

Forum Topic "Is my pc working as well as It should be? low gpu usage + lower than optimal fps"

coolguy562 2 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

Not necessarily. At higher resolutions yes the gpu plays more of a factor. But the OP is playing at 1080p in which case the gpu plays less of a factor in fps, I've had first hand experience with this when upgrading my gpu. At 1080p with a 1070 the CPU will be the bottleneck so a better CPU will yield higher fps, little to no gain in fps will be realized if say a 1080 was being used. Choose the CPU for the fps you want and a gpu for the graphical performance/fidelity you want.

Forum Topic "Is my pc working as well as It should be? low gpu usage + lower than optimal fps"

coolguy562 2 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

I'm getting on average around 70 at ultra. But keep in mind I'm on a 7700k (don't know if the game benefits from hyperthreading or not) but I do have it overclocked to 4.7GHz. It sounds like you're getting the fps you should be.

Forum Topic "CPU Idle Temp Gradually Increases Over 9 Months"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

That's what I use too, it's one of the better thermal pastes so you should be fine. Generally I put new thermal paste on once a year when I do my full system dusting, getting into every nook and cranny. But I'll also do smaller cleaning throughout the year, every couple of months or so. It's probably just dust buildup in the radiator.

Apart form the dust that others have mentioned, I'd reapply thermal paste, it may be drying out depending on what you used.

Forum Topic "Starting level build"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Your gpu doesn't really determine the fps you can be play at, the CPU does. Your gpu determines what graphical settings you can play at. If the form factor is a bug deal to you then go with Intel if it lets you. uild a smaller system, just make sure you have sufficient cooling in the smaller case.

Forum Topic "Starting level build"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

True, but they are really only starting to take advantage of 4. Support beyond that won't happen for a while simply because the vast majority of people have 4 or less cores. Why use time and resources to code for the minority. Also the OP has the 1400 in the list not the 1700. Both are great chips, I asked the OP what their fps goal were because if they were aiming for 144 an i7 will have a better chance at meeting that.

Forum Topic "Starting level build"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Kabylake isn't much more expensive I'd aim for that. what are your fps goals, if youre only aiming for 60fps ryzen will be more than enough but if you want 144 go Intel.

Forum Topic "Starting level build"

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

I'd go for the i7, it should perform slightly better in games, unless you wanted to do streaming/recording/editing then go for the Ryzen system. But the i7 would still perform pretty good for those tasks if you aren't doing highly detailed edits.

I believe a lot of those thermal problems have been resolved. Not as good as delidding but better than they were. I bought my 7700k less than 2 months ago. I'm not even breaking 60C under load clocked at 4.7GHz @1.25V with an h100i gtx. And it still stays pretty quiet.

Forum Topic "Please help me understand this Compatibility Issue"

coolguy562 2 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

The Motherboard selected above has 6, SATA 6 GB/S. It says if I use the M.2 SSD, it will disable 1 SATA. Am I correct to assume that If I use the M.2, I will have 4 remainding SATA? 3 remainding SATA If I also use the HDD above?

When you have the m.2 slot populated it will disable one of the sata ports on the motherboard, you'll have to check the manual for which on it disables. You can then use the remaining 5 ports for other sata drives, ssds, hdds, etc. After plugging in the HDD you will have 4 available to use.

Should I also take into account the Case? Does a Case affect how many of the SATA 6GB/S I can use?

Case doesn't matter, the ports are internal.

coolguy562 2 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

I'll start off by saying that I've never done custom water cooling but in theory I know enough that I could figure it out. From looking at the picture it doesn't look like you could (you might) mount a pump directly to the res. Just run tubes coming from the res to the pump mounted elsewhere in the case.
