Benchmark Scores I only game on this system... built for silence, not absolute max performance. ;)
Oof... that price is a hard pill to swallow.

Benchmark Scores Faster than yours... I'd bet on it. :)
When you say +100mv for the CPU, what is the actual voltage going through it? As you likely know, VID/stock voltage can vary wildly with each CPU so just stating what voltage was added really doesn't shed any insight as to the actual voltage you are running.

I like dragons. But this thing is ridiculous and so is MSI one.

Make a cool dragon logo.

Good looking block, not really my preferred style though... Nice to see it up there in the performance charts though.

Oh weird, I thought for sure I had it in the graphs too but maybe I took it out because it was no longer fitting in the space available. Maybe I will just have the final volts in the graphs next time onwards instead of the increment, but yeah it was ~1.25 VID, ~1.28 Vcore. I did not really spend much time on OC efficiency here since the main point was to generate heat.

Easier said than done for existing companies that have spent $$$ on brand awareness. Look at CORSAIR's own history with the logo.

Yep... either or... just so the reader knows what the voltage is.

Did you list the wattage you are putting through the cpu at these settings? Also good info if it wasnt up there. :)

How much would you trust on-board sensor measurements for real time wattage though? I am not sure how useful this is, and have kept away from these reportings to date, but am welcome to feedback.

clamp meter on the eps 8-pin. :)

But hwmonitor does a solid job if you have a board that works well with it.

Edit: you can run both at the same time amd compare too.

Not really possible to have a clamp meter in my hot box, but I can try HWMonitor and see how it goes.

Ahh, hotbox... we just normalized temperatures. Much easier and more flexible. :)

Since you only test small loads and for 30 mins, your room temp likely wont change much from start to finish (I'm in a 12x12 and it doesnt budge unless I use a HCC chip). Just need to note starting and ending room temp and adjust as needed.

Anyway, just good to know these details (in particular how much wattage you are cooling).

Apologies if this is listed in the review and I missed it, but the cpu is at stock with a voltage boost, right? Is that for 5 ghz while at stock optimized defaults on the mobo is used (just trying to wrap my head around the methodology).

As a value add, it would be great to see an all core heavier load and see how these respond too. :)

Manual OC to 5 GHz all cores, and while it would be great to do a heavier load, it would not be worth it for the time imo. Sorry about that.

No no.. good! 5 ghz all c/t is all you can really do outside of a custom hotplate.

Thanks for the review!

I am a bit of a simpleton when it comes to building custom loops, so please bear with me.

If I am building a simple loop to cool just my CPU that consists of just a res/pump, waterblock, and the radiator, do I need to even care about the liquid flow restriction? As it seems to me, even placing almost the worst in the liquid flow restriction, this block still provided the best temperature for the CPU during operation.

Nope. Only in more complicated loops does this really make a difference. So long as the flow rate ends up at 1-1.5 GPM you really will not see a difference.

Thank you for the detailed review! We are waiting for a review of new products from EK and Optimus Waterblock.

Like I said before, don't hold your breath for Optimus cooling since they haven't replied back to me. As for EK, the EK-Magnitude will release sometime next month I believe so I will aim for something soon on that.

It is suspicious that they did not answer you. They write - looking for independent reviewers)

Never mind, just heard back from them. So that might happen sooner than later after all!

Did you get one to review in the end please?
Asking as I am interested in this for the AMD side but finding very little information so far that is independent.
