I think that's realistic if you get good paste and its applied well/correct. Not sure how much it throttles. MCE leaves it wide open, worth a try. Asus boards are the only ones that truly respect MCE being disabled the rest still allow it to exceed the 95watt TDP when not in turbo mode. Gamers Nexus had an episode on that.
DR4 is nice just make sure you know if it allows 4 dimms. Cryorig R1 Universal will allow all 4. I would also test bench the CPU cooler on the mobo box to make sure your happy before you install into case. Much easier to re-apply paste and re-test. I tried the thermal pads that was a big mistake. Paste is the only way. Run the Intel stress utility, Cinebench etc... Oh Memtest helps to make sure all Ram is good. I had one bad module sent.
I dont have MCE enabled but XMP I do. It can get as hot as the mid to upper 70's -82C when it turbos 4.7ghz+ but mostly in the low 60's when its in the 95 watt range. If I allowed it to MCE mode it would get too hot, but who knows. Perhaps If i used a better paste. I just used the stuff it came with which was a high quality paste that was thicker than some and dark grey. CP7
Great to hear. Yeah the case is really nice to build in and looks great. Noticed no price on your GPU?
Im getting the similar temps at stock and turbo under load using a R1 cooler. Peaks at 150-160 watts. Glad to see someone getting similar temps been wondering.... AIO are too risky when you spend that kind of $$
+1 for Air cooling and Evolve X
Nice Case and Mobo, I have the same. 2070 very reasonable purchase. I would have done the same if they were that price back in Nov 2018!
Great combo and build. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/YXNQzy
Did you have a difficult time mounting the motherboard I have a similar build same case and mobo. Others have complained, was curious. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/YXNQzy
Nice build BTW.
I built the same system. I had a real hard time as well. Wasn't sure what the exact cause was. I had to hold it in place as I was screwing. Put some force n the edge to get the holes to line up. So yeah It must be the IO plate area is off a bit. Hope it worked out since its been 10 days.
I run mine with MCE disabled, but allow turbo to kick in. When that happens its in the mid to upper 70's. When turbo isn't running its in the upper ~50-62c. So Im shocked as well for a air cooler with only 33.84cfm !
Ensourced.net makes great sleeved cables and the cable combs looks the best or least noticeable. Its in my rig now. https://pcpartpicker.com/builds/edit/?userbuild=YXNQzy
This one, IMHO
Cryorig R1 will work as well. Mine runs in the 60's
Oh those IC graphite pads don't work on a CPU like this. It was constantly heat throttling for a day when under load during testing so I went with the CP7 paste and it dropped 25-30c. So yeah the pad has too many air pockets and doesn't bond with the metal on both sides well enough despite its amazing thermal abilities in itself.
Since I dont have MCE enabled and my wattage stays at 95 during load its usually stays at 55-60 under full load. But when it turbos 150wats during the start of a encoding job it hits the 70's. So yeah this CPU is not easy to stay cool adn I wont be OCing it either. The R1 Cooler is rated for 240-50. I'm sure my application of the CP7 thermal paste which is actually good quality and dense wast ok. I think I put enough to cover the IHS heat center. But I did not lap it or spread it. I just put enough to cover the cores then hoped it spread beyond that for additional cooling.
Yeah the X is hard not to like eye candy plus internally it’s awesome. Thanks
I dont really shop on eBay but that is a good deal. Speed is 7200rpm 256mb cache. enterprise type. Thanks for +1
Yep, I need to post a new pic with that fan reversed m. I just forgot to take updated pics after.
Thanks for the +
Yeah I was like argh!!! I should of posted pics sooner so you guys could of corrected me. I was like How could I miss that. I will post some new pics with it already fixed. Thanks!
Yep, I noticed it after the photos were taken. That’s what happens I guess when your pulling an all nighter.
Nice build. I have same CPU and Mobo. Need to post it. I had 103% Silicon score. my Cryorig R1 cooler is 165 running @ Stock speeds.
I think its because the pad its not perfectly smooth and has too many air pockets albeit small even with applied pressure. The paste fills them in.
I must of of had the right amount of paste to get my temps. Too much can impede as you said.
That's excellent for a i9 with a 200 watt tdp cooler! you must of did a nice job on the paste or just the right amount or just and/.or good quality. I m hitting similar temps on my i9. the R1 has a 240 tdp. As the paste got broken/bonded etc... it it went from the low 80's to 70's after breaking it in.
I doubt I will get below 70 under a real load since I was getting this in open, but perhaps the fans can actively cool it vs just ambient. I put a decent amount of paste but I guess not too much. That was the reason I tried the pad, but that just wont work on these CPU's my suspicion is the pad does not not create tight bond withe the metal but by itself transfers heat very well. I must of had too much air gap.
Yeah its in the newest boards its a score that is constantly checking its thermal capability to help tune its AI engine. I just use it tell me how well its doing. Although I have no idea how high it can get. I started at 130 ish now Im at 160+ It use to also score CPU Silicon quality mine was 103% but again I have no idea what the range is. It was removed in in my last Bios update.
Thanks for having this dialog with me I felt like I needed a real person to talk too. Most I spent on a PC ever!
R1 universal by Cryorig has full ram clearance and 240 tdp. You can ad a fan on the opposite side of ram as well.
I’m getting now finally in the mid 70’s now that the paste has normalized but I too I’m hitting about 145watts. Wow 250!
Not sure why but the more I ran the cooler it got cooler after doing paste. But I imagine I would get very similar temps if I was doing OC. So I may have a bit of OC headroom. Thanks for the fan speed details. I’m going to run them hard on a Q fan curve when cpu hits 60 to cool it down before it gets to 70. Your cooler is very nice. Oh btw my Asus cooler score is 163 Interesting prediction they provide.
Wow thats great temp for this CPU.
Nice clean build +1
So what are your temps like using this Cooler idle/load. I had the DR3. This time I got the R1 by Cryorig.
Got a Cryrorig R1 universal. I used the CP7 paste after the IC graphite pad was terrible for this type of CPU. But now I rarely if at all thermal throttle My top was 92 c using h265 encoding benchmark. but Cinebench I get below 90c with a score of 2015 before that I couldn't hit 2000. Now mostly in the 80's. But like you I now understand how even these 240+ TDP coolers have a hard time keeping the 9900 cool. My idle is 30 c. room temp is 70f. Im running it stock no OC.
Your Ram should be in Slots A2 and B2. Other than that nice build. pg 21 or 1.1.4. I have the same Mobo.
Got love those Ensourced sleeved cables. I just received mine . Similar pattern too. Goes nicely with the Hero mobo!
You may want to get a Maximus Hero XI to run at Stock Freq. See this video
I have 750w G3, but 150 extra does give you a decent buffer.
If your keeping your case then a AIO 240mm + is your only choice. I would stick to Stock Freq on this CPU in this case.
2080 Ti is missing the price, but yeah....
It should be ok, but no second GPU and light OC on CPU or just Stock freq.
Oh good! Yeah a few channels. But also some sites are positive like this one. https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/asus_rog_maximum_xi_hero_review,21.html
Everyone has been bashing the Maximus XI Hero or ROG Strix lately, how is it working out for you? I was thinking of getting this or the Strix for my 9900K.

What mother board did you use on this build?
I've seen delidding devices you place it in that you slowly screw or apply pressure until it pops off inside the little box...
Yeah Im leaning toward air cooling as well. Great article!
I think I'll be ok since I wont be doing much overclocking. I just want a good cooler to run as stock or with a light overclock.
Wow RGB cables that is cool. Makes me wonder though if the point of RGB is to make everything light up? More pics....
What may you decide to switch to Air cooling. Im trying to decide the same thing. 100c is surprising given the cooler your using.
What are your temps like on the H7 Quad Lumi?
Do you recall how long your GPU 8pin cable was since its custom?
Ok, thats good to know. Thanks Jaz11
How about your CPU and Mobo? I know the CPU ones can be long since they are at top? Im buying my first set and I'm trying to have the right length.
How long was your sleeved GPU cables? 40cm,50,60 etc...
