nah no MCE, its disabled by default on my board. the review i was comparing my results with was done by toms hardware in p95 with avx enabled, doesnt specify which version i dont think. and it was stock all core 4.6 at 1.2v (or at least thats what hwmonitor was displaying in cpu vcore) but it seems that my mobo was over volting my cpu and hwmonitor wasnt reading the correct voltage, i think? i found this reddit post which i think is related to what im experiencing.

https://www.reddit.com/r/intel/comments/9q6qs3/anandtech_finds_asrock_boards_overvolting_the/

i manually set the cpu to run at 4.6 at 1.216v and only drew 200w so that falls in line with toms hardware review of the 9700k, although it doesnt say the version i think i have enough evidence to conclude that my mobo was over volting the cpu in auto settings, i couldve probably gone lower than 1.216v but why bother. but...the fact that you managed to only hit 51c at stock is kinda impressive, dont think anyone else i spoke to were getting such low results. youd think that the z370 extreme4 would be better at regulating voltages with all praise it got for its vrms.

yeah im on the latest version of bios, the mobo had the 9th gen bios update out of the box, i only had to update for memory compatibility (xmp wasnt working for the ram i upgraded to) and no the cooler isnt mounted too tight, i stopped tightening when i couldnt tighten anymore aka wrist tight. the temps im getting have nothing to do with my cooling capacity its directly related to power draw. when i run non avx bench marks like cinebench my results line up with everyone else's and the cpu behaves as it should. now for some unknown reason when i run the same stress in prime95 my cpu draws 280w instead of 275 and it reaches 100c and throttles. guess it cant handle avx loads for some reason, i reset my bios to default settings once again (not that i needed to since i didnt change any setting in bios) and it didnt change anything, im still drawing 280w and hitting 100c at stock settings. feels like my only option at this point is to try to rma it. i just hope newegg doesnt send it back after they test it.

I get that but from the data I've collected it seems that the 9700k should only be drawing around 200w in small ffts avx on and hitting around 80c not 275w at 95c. Could it be my motherboard and not the chip? Is there a way to set a limit to power draw?

Are you running the latest version of prime95? You do have a better cooler than but there shouldn't be that big of a difference. I was thinking about getting some kryonaut. How many watts are you drawing? I draw 275w in p95 small ffts avx which is absurd. That's why KY temps get so high. In stress tests like cinebench everything seems to be as it should so I'm guessing my CPU doesn't play nice with avx loads and doesn't limit it's power draw or something?

There was but but I removed it a long time ago. I've had this PC for over a year now and just upgraded to the 9700k from a i5 8600k. Everything is as it should be, only difference from when I had the i5 was the bios update to the latest version for memory compatibility since I upgraded that as well. It's weird tho cause when I run cinebench I draw around 140-150w I've compared those results to others and it lines up with theirs. The only time it misbehaves is when under a avx load. And no mce is disabled, I reset my bios to default settings when I upgraded the cpu

nah i bought it new from newegg. i already reset my bios to default, i never changed any setting besides enabling the xmp profile in the first place. newegg said theyd be willing to do an advanced rma for me so im gonna test the new chip they send, doing so will give me the answers i need i hope. anyone here have any experience with returning hardware to newegg? if i send them my current cpu back after i receive the new one will they test it and find that nothings wrong with it and send it right back you think?

im pretty sure nothings wrong with it i upgraded from the i5 8600k only a week ago and the 8600k was running just fine. i was peaking at 75c with MCE enabled in prime95 small ffts avx on, MCE was over volting the cpu. i know that you cant really compare the two cpus but 75c is pretty good with MCE enabled. i wasnt expecting for the 9700k to run that much hotter at stock, its a lil ridiculous. i was expecting around 85c.

and i havent tried reseating the chip itself but i have reaseated the cooler 3 times already each with a different thermal paste application and i get the same results

intel wont replace it cause its technically within spec and not defective. im gonna try to do an advance rma through newegg and test the new chip they send me to see if theres any difference, obviously will be but i just want to see by how much. im just worried that theyll test the one im using now when i send it back to them, find nothing wrong with it or they wont test it in prime95 and overlook the power consumption and send it right back and ask for the replacement.

The voltage sit at 1.168 when running prime95 avx off at stock and 1.2 with avx on in small ffts. Seems normal to me at auto settings but I'll try lowering voltage I guess since I've tried just about everything else with no results. When I run prime95 small ffts with avx on the thing draws 275watts that's I little crazy at stock, ive already tried resetting bios to default but that changed nothing. And yeah I figured they wouldn't find anything wrong with it and send it back.

sure is, reaches 1450 rpm at full load. i haven't changed any of my fan curves from when i was using my i5 8600k which was running with MCE enabled so it was over volted at 4.3ghz and in prime 95 avx enabled it peaked at 75c...compared to 95c for the i7 9700k......increase in temperature was expected going from a 6 core to a 8 core with .3ghz increase but the i7 is soldered so i wasn't expecting this much of a difference. i was expecting to hit between 80c to 85c in prime95 avx on with my cooler. people that have their 9700ks overclocked to 5ghz are getting the same results as i am at stock -____-

did you experience any problems using the power button on this case? for some reason i need to hold down the power button to boot mine. and did yours come with a reset button cable? mine only came with the power switch cable and hdd led cable.

hey i just had a few questions for you if you dont mind. i just finished helping my friend build his pc using the same case and we were a bit confused about the wires that are connected from the front pannel to the motherboard. what is the sata cable used for? and i noticed there was only a hdd led cable and a power switch cable, i didnt see one for the reset button, but for some reason the led on the reset button turns on but doesnt for the power button, does that have to do with the HDD LED cable? and when we booted it for the time, pressing the power button didnt do anything so i tried holding it down instead and it booted that way. does yours work the same way? do you have to hold it down for a few seconds to turn your pc on?

I'm not sure if it'll provide enough room for you to mount your gpu vertically. My guess is it wouldn't work due to the size of the cooler, not sure though. that configuration never interested me, you get better temps mounting it horizontally from what I've read. I chose this cooler for the exact same reason, I wanted to hit a 5ghz overclock with the 8600k as well but haven't tried yet. I'm running a 1440p 165hz display so it'll have less of an impact and I'm hitting the max refresh rate of my monitor in almost all of the games I play so I've found little reason to overclock but definitely will further down the road when my hardware struggles to deliver the performance I'm looking for.

not a problem. yeah its the stock fan. there are two models, the R1 universal (what i would recommend getting) and the R1 ultimate. the ultimate is the one with two of the thicker fans mounted on the radiator. which cpu are you using?....oh and make sure to mount the cooler to the mother board before you install it in the case, installing the mobo first then trying to mount the cooler sounds like a pain in the ***.

The fan mounted in the front is thinner than your typical 140mm fan which allows more ram clearance. The positioning of the CPU socket on the motherboard will also play a role but the fan does help a lot with ram clearance.

yeah evga is whats up when it comes to nvidia gpus, you only have to pay the price difference if there is any and shipping. i think i bought mine too soon, i was hoping for a july 30th or august release but it may be a bit later, the step up program also guarantees that you get the 1180, im pretty sure theyll sell out quickly but even if theyre out of stock you can apply for the step up program and theyll ship it to you once theyre in stock.

If I were you I'd look into getting an Evga 1080 or 1080ti. Evga offers something called the step up program which lets you upgrade to a new generation gpu if they come out within 90 days of your purchase. Problem is we don't know if the new cards will be out within 90 days.

either not mounted correctly or the thermal paste wasnt applied correctly. but it seems he over clocked to 4.8 ghz and and depends on the program hes running to get those temps.

you should have done more research before purchasing parts. you dont need a z370 mobo for the i3 8100, those boards were designed for k cpus like the 8600k. itll still work though, you should also buy a dedicated graphics card, i would recommend a 1050 ti for 1080p.

from what ive read id have to heat it up with a blow dryer and then use something to scrape it off, some ppl use razors but im just worried about scratching the tempered glass in the process.....then id have to purchase some goo gone to wipe off the adhesive, and idk if i want to go through all of that yet lol. i guess ill wait until its presence starts bothering me so much that i cant stand it lol.
