  1. AIDA seems to get higher temps  :( between 10-15° higher than other programs.


    Have done some testing with other programs, now benching with CPU-Z.


    AIDA says 80° - 83°

    RealTemp says 67° - 70°

    HWMonitor says 67° - 69°


    I think i in the end i SKIP aida  :( not soo good a program anymore as before.


    HWM - vCore low: 0.770 V - High: 1.388 V.


    i DON'T recommend using or installing "Asus AI Suite" on a newer Asus MB, the program HIDE some things in HWmonitor and AIDA.

    I use the BIOS to steer my fans, not "Asus AI Suite"

  2. If you use automatic settings (including) vCore, it's very difficult to control.

    Have you done overclocking before?


    Nope, i let the Asus MB do it for me, have allways used standard speed on my MB before, but with this MB i tryed it, because the MB offer it.

    Even my old i7-4771K runs with standard speed.

  3. 1: Thanks for answer.


    2: I don't know, because i use the BIOS to OC my MB (3 ways 2 do it, Stock, Tower and Water)

    Stock max.: 4.2GHz

    Tower max.: 4.4GHz

    Water max.: 4.6Ghz


    AIDA say (if u can use it) CPU VID: 0.788 V  -  VCCSA: 2-040 V (4.4GHz now)


    Test: (Have pictures)

    4.2GHz: Low 22°, High 65°

    4.6GHz: Low 22°, High 79°

    4.6GHz Prime95: Low 22°, High 93°


    Soo i lowered my max. speed to 4.4GHz


    First time i ever use Watercooler new CPU and WC, used CM pasta, have some big trouble with cables (3 stick onboard - CPU, OPT and Watercooler)


    WC on watercooler, Fans on CPU, work fine, fans starts fast when over 55° (set in BIOS) Dont use BIOS setting for WC


    3: Nepton 240M on top in Cosmos II, fans over radiator, blowing air out.


    Kindly TeBo.

  4. I have bought a new MB (Asus Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1) and a i7-6700K 4GHz and with it a CM Nepton 240M.



    My question is, what is the max. temp. for watercooling a CPU, mine is approx 20-21° in idle and full load a peak at 80° in "Stress CPU" (CPU-Z v1.73.0.x64)


    i7-6700K (OC to 4.4GHz, have tryed 4.6GHz, giving Â° on 5-10° higher)


    AIDA v5.50.3600

    RealTemp v3.70


    AIDA: idle 20-21° - load 80-81°

    RealTemp: idle 18-20° - load 66-67°


    Stopping stresstest, temp. drops in a sec. to <30°, with 4-4GHz, is this to warm?


  5. Have just bought Cosmos II (Wooooww, just LOVE this tower)


    But i have search CM for fans like "SCOUT II 120MM" but in blue led color, need at least 6 :-)

    Want to replace them in my Cosmos II, one in front, both i side where HD are, one backfan and replace both i top over my "CM Nepton 240M" my first water cooler ever, but the thing is i want to use CSII on/off led to.


    Have CM those fans?
