  1. Nivida have apparently just admitted that yes, they had misjudged the crypto mining thing and that yes, 2080 Ti cards are dying.
  2. Seems good to me. Glad you got it sorted out. 🙂
  3. I have GSkill Ripjaw V 3200 MHz, and the voltage I see in my BIOS is... 1.344, and the voltage I have, in yellow, is 1.350. It's the voltage in yellow that's applied, so you are good to go. You can check you have 1.350 with CPUz or HW Monitor or any app like that. May be something to do with your immature BIOS why the non XMP voltage was higher. 1.5 volts is the max safe voltage for DDR4.
  4. I bet your wife gave you a right telling off.
  5. Were the ends of the tubes cut square and deburred?
  6. Give it a bash and report back. 🙂 If it's 5 degrees, it might be worth it. Don't see them anywhere in the UK.
  7. Hmmm.... bet it doesn't make much difference. Cheap though, so why not give it a bash.
  8. So this is with your 6700K? 4.6 to 4.8 GHz is the range for a 6700K. 4.7 Is fine. Not all will do 4.8 GHz. Pushing it higher has little value as the frame rate increase will be barely measureless. Overclocking is generally linear in a well balanced system, if you increase to 4.7 from 4.6 GHz it equates to less than one frame per second at 30 frames per second. Little point. Some chips at the upper end of the silicon lottery can do 4.8 GHz. Again though... no point in pushing a mere 100 MHz. It will be barely measurable in terms of frame rate. Delidding will enable you to nudge it up and lower temps. Again though, consider what that will mean in terms of performance and if it's worth it. Set the XMP profile. That will be the frequency and timings the RAM manufacturer guarantee your modules will run at. That voltage is high! Should be 1.35. Again, set the XMP profile. Run the stress test again after you have set the XMP profile to make sure you are still stable. Why don't you check out an overclocking guide for your CPU...
  9. Yep, RealBench does that to me too. Well known issue. If you change your page file it will fix the issue. Although I find even running at 8 GB RAM (so no error) it's still an effective stress test. No... a stress test should be run on its own with nothing else running. However... you can run a temperature monitoring app, like CoreTemp or RealTemp if you wish.
  10. 🙁 Dunno Dougal. I know the link below is for M3 screws but maybe Watercooling UK have what you are looking for. https://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Alphacool-NexXxos-fan-mounting-screw-M3-x-37-mm-4-pcs_53577.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIzZqgvMnW3gIVq5ztCh0mHQ8ZEAQYASABEgLdUvD_BwE Edit: Can you drill the devils out and use what you like/have?
  11. Huh... this is getting even more bizarre lol. 😀 You cant "easily relid without conductonaut". It's not possible, instant overheat and shut down. The thought shouldn't occur to you, it would be a disaster. It's not a case of "BEST", it's essential to use some kind of thermal interface material. You said... "I had thought about not using any TIM between the die and IHS when it was time for reassembly." When I spoke about not using liquid metal, I was referring to UNDERNEATH the IHS, not on the die. You must use it on the die. Common practice is top apply underneath the IHS, AND on top of the die.
  12. Stay safe California people. Andy chance of you guys being evacuated?
  13. This bit did it... "but I had thought about not using any TIM between the die and IHS when it was time for reassembly." 🙂
  14. I suggest you find a wired keyboard to try. 🙂 WiFi keyboard usually work as they don't require drivers, but I suspect that the fact that its WiFi may be the trouble.
