  1. Hi A few odd things. I've recently added cheap water cooling to my PC. It might be a misunderstanding (or reconfiguration) on my pat. 1) Sometimes when I start the PC and AIDA64 auto starts, it only shows the 3 white fan options as shown in the bottom of pic "Turn on PC". If I close AIDA64 and restart it, or reboot, it comes up with the 5 fans it should have (see bottom of pic "Restarted"), 2) very occasionally it starts correctly by showing the 5 fan options, but will say both the GPU Rad fan and the Temp Side Fan are 0 RPM even though they are spinning (sorry haven't got a pic for this) Note, Power supply fan should be 0 RPM as it's a quite PS that only starts the fan if needed 3) With my CPU watercooler, I installed Corsairs iCUE fan control software (I presume this is needed to control the fans?). That software shows completely different CPU temps to yours. When running your Stress Test, (all in C) After 40 seconds, yours says 39 , iCUE says 33.7 After 2 mins, yours says 40 iCUE says 34.3 After 3 mins yours says 40 iCUE says 34.8 After 4 mins yours says 41, iCUE says 35.1 After 6 mins yours says 41, iQUE says 35.6 After 11 mins yours says 42 iQUE says 36.1 Pics of the above attached. I left it running for a while longer, but the temp stayed fluctuating between 41/42. Then after I'd stopped your stress test for a couple of mins or so your s/w says 29, iQUE says 34.6 Turned on PC Restarted PC AIDA64 CPU Stress test after 40 secs AIDA64 CPU Stress test after 2 mins AIDA64 CPU Stress test after 3 mins AIDA64 CPU Stress test after 4 mins AIDA64 CPU Stress test after 6 mins AIDA64 CPU Stress test after 11 mins Stress test stopped for a couple of mins or so System Spec: Asus Vulcan Pro ROG Headset Corsair Neutron GTX SSD 240GB (C drive, System) Samsung 500GB EVO SSD (D drive, Games) SanDisk SSD Plus 480GB (E drive, Steam Library) Samsung 500GB EVO SSD (F drive , Music S/W) Samsung 500GB EVO SSD (G, H, I drive, Docs, More Programs, Email) Toshiba HDwe140 4TB (External enclosure, only plugged in to do backups) XFX RADEON RX480 Black Edition OC Utech MMO Gaming Mouse Logitech G510 Keyboard Razer Orbweaver Chrome Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 Audio interface Dell U2713HM monitor running at 2560 x 1440 BenQ GW2470 runing at 1920 x 1080 Intel Core i7 3820 a2011 3600 MHz Asus P9X79 Socket 2011 ATX Motherboard 32GB Corsair Vengance DDR3 RAM Win 10 Pro Corsair 750 Watt HX750i Fully Modular ATX PSU/Power Supply Corsair Hydro H55 on GPU Corsair Hydro H100 v2 on CPU NTZX H440 Mid ATX PC case
  2. Hi all Have just watercooled my RX480 and while the GPU Diode and VRM2 temps are nice and low, VRM1 is high. It's a reference board with AIO cooler. Heat sinks put on all GPU Vram and other chips and quiet fan also blowing over them. Any idea what chips VRM1 is reporting about please?

  3. Hmm, was about to reboot and see what BIOS temp says, when I clicked reboot, a message saying WIndows updates have been instaled appeared (I hate WIndows 10 doing this). Anyway, booted into BIOS and CPU temps were as expected. Booted back into windows and temp now seems to be displaying correctly (see attached) Whether this was a glitch in your program that a reboot cured or something to do with the windows update that was installing in the background, don't know, probably the win update. many thanks
  4. Updated to Extreme 5.60.3700 Prior to this, my CPU temp (which has huge coolers on it) when web browsing etc never went above 40C Now as I type this, its showing as 90C The 4 CPU cores are under 35C I've just noticed a CPU Package option which seems to show more what the old CPU temp showed, that's showing 35C, which I've now enabled on my OSD My CPU Temp shouldn't be around 90C when almost idle, is this a bug, or is it reporting something different and the CPU package is the actual temp? I'm confused Uploaded pic of OSD Many thanks PC spec Intel Core i7 3820 a2011 Overclocked to 4676 MHz Asus P9X79 Socket 2011 ATX Motherboard 32GB Corsair Vengance DDR3 RAM Corsair Neutron GTX SSD 240GB Corsair Force GT SSD 60GB Corsair Force GT SSD 120GB Seegate Sata3 2TB Toshiba Sata3 2TB 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 Firewire Audio Interface Tagan TG700-U25 700W ATX2.0 Dual Engine Silent sli Power Supply Archon SB-E X2 CPU Cooler Antec 1200 Case win 10 pro 64 bit
  5. Hi all What I'm trying to do is work out exactly what current my PC draws if the CPU cores are all at 100% and 3d graphics are running as fast as possible. I've got my PC plugged into a power monitor but I cant see a way of getting both CPU and graphics going together. I can get the CPU cores at 100% but of course theyre not above about 12% when the gpu is being tested. is there any wqy of achievieng what I want please? thanks
