Hi all I have recently upgraded to a coffee lake system from Haswell. As previously posted I have a decent 8700k which is running at 5.2ghz now at 1.35v. I have a FE RTX 2080 which runs really damn hot. My airflow isn’t great so I think the 2080 is really contributing to the heat build up which is limiting its performance. Caps out around 2000mhz which about 1980mhz being sustained with fans on full. Now I hear that the RTX cards are mainly limited by power draw, but I am thinking I can get more out of my 8700k by cooling down the air in my case – so my theory is water cooling the 2080 may lower temps a fair bit – but I guess will add heat to the loop. I have 1*280mm and 1*120mm radiators and a single res/pump combo. My case is the inwin 805 so I have cool air coming in from the bottom, which is drawn in my the 280mm and exhaled in side the case, where the exhaust has the 120mm on it. I also have an 860i PSU which I have the fan set to run to use the PSU as an additional exhaust. So is it worth the £177 to buy the block, back plate and couple fittings ??? On the fence!
