    OK, so i know everyone is going mental for Ryzen, but some of us are still on the blue team.

    so wondering what people are doing with their x cpus.

    i've been playing around with mine and have it stable at 4800mhz with 1.23v running 4Ghz cl17 ram, nice enough. so looked at the cache a bit...

    its currently at 32x and in auto mode that puts the mesh/cache volts at 1.2. which basically adds a good 10c to the load temps(compared to 30x in auto - 1.1v). however it seems to be ok with 1v manual and that makes it run vastly cooler.

    Just wondering what everyone else is running?

    update, anything below 0.95 makes it crash quickly, but damn thats a large undervolt and has a fantastic effect on the temps. totally worth doing it if you are finding it toasty

    As the tumbleweed rolls past this thread. how does this look? Got the quad channel installed today, and had to back down the freq a bit but lowered timings too.

    Did you find setting the mesh/cache voltage manually reduce temps from the motherboards auto setting?

    What temps are you you getting?

    Cheers

    4.8 -4.9 avg but temps can ramp up so fast.

    reduced cache voltage to 1v from the default 1.1/1.2 which made a good difference. about 40-60 in games depending. avx stress tests = way too hot, but i dont use avx for my normal stuff, so that can wait till its delidded, which it defo needs..

    Are you avx offsetting back to stock frequency then or just avoiding avx stress tests?

    Have you got gpu's in your loop too?

    Nah its fine with the stress tests, just maxes out the temp on the package, core temps are okish. but i dont use many or any avx during normal use. so they would run at full speed.

    yes the gpu is in the loop, but the deltas are so high its clear that the stock intel thermal paste isnt doing its job very well

    yeah so put the cache back to 32x with the quad channel memory and it really is a hot mofo of a chip. To be honest feel a bit let down that it isn't soldered, complete waste and annoying that we have to delid ourselves.

    Its a beast cpu of course, but there we go.

    In games it sits at mid 50s to mid 60s with the current oc of 4.8 / 3.8 ddr4 and 32 cache. which is ok, but avx stress tests, no. (not using any offset of course)
