Sorry, but, as of right now I am playing mad scientist with my new computer build. I am currently overclocking and testing stability, SO, I will go thru several computer crashes, LOL!!! I feel like Tim Allen right now...MORE POWER UGH UGH!!!
Say what!!!!

Overclocking and stability to me means waking up late after some beers!! Lol

I think I may have had my first Gyre 350 fail on me the other day. I am currently cleaning it and will likely replace the motor block to see if it works.

For those that think one of their Gyre 350's failed, try cleaning the motor block. My gyre would spin, I could feel the motor turning, but the motor block wouldn't. I just cleaned the Gyre motor block, and did a complete tear down, and when I put it back together I was going to replace the motor block. Instead, after doing a complete tear down and cleaning, I put it back with the original 3 year old motor block in it, and guess what, It works perfectly now. I guess you actually need to clean the motor block and not just the impellers, LOL!!! ;) :eek:o_O:grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes:

New computer is up and running. I am talking to you on it now. Just having built it, I am already upgrading it, LOL!!! Youbhave to be careful with the DDR5 ram, and Intel will only guarantee 4800MHz, I installed 5600MHz ram and was only able to get up to 4000MHz before having posting issues. I am changing it to 2 16G G.Skill ddr5 5600MHz ram now. I am also waiting on another 2T Samsung 2280 Pro ssd, it should arrive today. I will have to shut down the computer to install both. The ssd goes behind the EVGA 3080ti graphics card, so I will have to remove it.

Wow nice rig. I just did a 11900KF with 3080Ti, Corsair 64GB DDR4 last week. 3 curved 23 MSIs. No water just using a Noctua Chromax.

That card runs hot. About 70c under load. Going to make a nice heater in the winter. They say it doesn't throttle back until about 80c so I guess that's ok.

Thank you

I changed the fan curves after I switched the OC switch on the card. I have yet to benchmark it as I seem to not be able to find the benchmark program in Heaven Benchmark yet, LOL!!!

I have been OC'ing the 12700k, though having issues with the DDR5 being stable at higher clocks. Its really not surprising yet as no hardware is ready for it yet.

My score so far after a mild overclock.

Just figured out how to benchmark on Heaven Bencemark, I guess it pays to actually read the instructions, LOL!!!

First score 3300+

Now to actually OC the card. With a mild OC it ran at 76c. I just changed the fan curve again. I use MSI Afterburner for my OC software on the GPU.

Knowing myself, I couldn't leave my new computer alone, LOL!!! I will now start to order and change my computer to a open loop water cooled system. I just ordered a new water block for my EVGA 3080ti graphics card. I will slowly get together the other parts needed to redu my cooling on the computer.

I've been using it for a couple weeks now. Works great for having better fan curves and setups to control how/when the increase.
