And I can personally vouch for the Foundation block. The 3070 Ti forced me back to the C14S or else I would still be using it. But, to be honest I don't miss it that much at 142W, it is a big difference thermally but you know how these CPUs are, no real diff

The TechN is as good if not better.
Hi,
TechN if you're in the EU is a good option
They did have some wonky cold plate milling quality issues "cooling fins were crooked as hell" in the beginning though not sure that was fixed or not they said they weren't binning bad cold plates because it would add to costs I had some image samples but they are on a different machine.

Optimus always has good quality and frankly these two blocks cost the same amount in the US it's a go to if in stock.

Here's a sample

By the way I would of gotten a techn intel copper if they had one but no way a nickel plated one with that type of milling.

I just can't justify £110 for that cooler. Mrs is letting me get away with a new monitor, GPU, CPU and cooler and extra exhaust fan as it is. Feel like I'm taking liberties. :respect:

That seems expensive, FC140 is better for my CPU but this one is pretty close. The fans are pretty nice.

So that is a Noctua DHU12A? So jealous. It would even fit in my case. Going to get a Deepcool AK620 for the ultimate snug fit as every Noctua cooler I looked at was 165mm tall and I have 160mm clearance. Fail.

If you want you could fit a Noctua NH-U12A, it's 158mm tall.

I do not have the budget for that, I'm afraid. The Deepcool AK620 was reviewed here very favourably and it enables me to get a 5800X instead of a 5700X. Clearance is 160mm too so close isn't the word. Anyone do loans on here or want to sell me their NH-U12A for £50 - £60?:toast:

Maintenance. Lots and lots of maintenance. I basically gutted my system in anticipation of a couple of key upgrades. Namely, a new CPU and a larger radiator.

I also plan on doing some solder work on my 2060 Super. My goal is to replace that weird pigtail connector with one of these:

View attachment 250527
There are some currently unused, "vestigial" through holes on the PCB that I believe I can solder this connector to. I've already done some testing with a multimeter, and everything looks good so far. And oddly enough, my water block already has a cutout for a connector in that exact area.

I think we have the same case :) Forgot the brand/model, to be honest...

Looks good and would fit in my case. Shame it's in 'Murica. Would take an age to ship here and would probably cost the same as the Noctua after shipping. Ah well. Nice build, getting back on topic.

Have you looked at the ID cooling se-226-xt? seems a bargain from reviews but I've no first hand experience.

It’s a good cooler, but 12 cores with boost is ok, but add a heavy load and she falls apart a bit with full power limits. Turning down limits also reduces performance capabilities. It will be ok for my 5600X though. I did snag it’s fans to try out in my setup.. I haven’t run it yet I just got it all together.

4DE23257-2359-4B16-A7D6-2623766C4389.jpeg



Edit:

Ok, using Linpack Xtreme as my load, same power settings on the cpu for both coolers, the same 55% iPPC limit for 2200RPM and my load was 85c on FC140 after 20 passes with a 10GB load, and did not drop under 4500MHz.. On TRUE I stopped the test at 3 passes as it was trying to pass 92c with clocks at 4375MHz ish. Testing was done with an ambient temp of 20c.

It looks kind of goofy but it works really well.. I do let the cpu fan wind up to 2500 revs but the case fans are limited to 2200 revs.

I want something with twin high rpm fans as I don't care about noise, just performance.

Look no further :)

I have set to boost to only 5GHz , I cant get it to spit out more than 1.425.. whatever..

I've just found the BROWN NH U12A at a bargain price, so will be muddling on with my Vetroo V5 until I get my 5800X...
So you have 3000rpm fans! WTF... My case fans are all running at a set speed that I can't control, even with FanControl. Me sad...

Couldn't help myself when I saw the NZXT H7 Flow case so I bought it. Not bad on price at £119. I found the build very straightforward and easy. Lots of room, easy cable management and very well put together. The air flow is excellent. Decided to get the EZ GPU bracket as I heard some stories around ram issues on RTX 3080's with bending and this bracket actually works very well with a very nice flat support piece at the top which holds the GPU very well.. ARGB..well what can I say!!!

Very Cool! Looks like the same case I have.
Yep, Phanteks Enthoo Pro M.

I do want to upgrade it to something else soon. Probably a Fractal Define R5, because that case is awesome.

Final update on the NZXT H7 Flow build. Just added the white extension cables to the GPU and motherboard. Have to admit had a few issues with cable management as the space in the rear between the back cover could be a bit deeper as it was a struggle to get everything tidied up. the cables were fairly cheap at £18 for the motherboard, 2 sets for the GPU and only one for CPU power which I have not used. Overall I am impressed with the case as the look is just nice and clean.

One issue though during stress and thermal testing and probably for another thread. Temps are very good with a per core overclock on my 12700K with 5.2GHz on two cores, then stepping down to 5.1Ghz and finally a 5GHz all core on the P-cores vcore is on adaptive. Temps seem fine at an all core 5GHz with a Cinebench R23 multicore loop test hitting 85 degrees max on the hottest core but cores 2 and 6 only hit 76 degrees C which is almost a 10 degrees difference...A fraction over 24K multi score. I have repasted with Noctua NT-H2 which is excellent and to be honest not worried as temps are still well below the limit. Could this be an issue with the Intel 'bending' socket design and would it be worth getting that new Thermal Grizzly CPU Frame?

That's a tidy GPU support bracket.

Hey, if you look at the mod i did to the retention mechanism(Grind those "Ears" down so they are at same level as the frame, it will still give some pressure but eliminate the pressure on IHS which causes the bending + washers. i am down 11c and i have no issues att all :) but i have to admit that the frame from Thermal grizzly or the other ones that you can get looks good!
