Safe to say my gpu is dunzo?

So I got my pc running again ended swapping in all the parts I knew was not faulty and I had to make sure so I put my 2080ti back in started up path of exile and noticed in my hideout I was getting 79fps when I first got the pc it was around the 120fps+ range.. so decided to download unigine and compare it with .

I scored
Fps 49.4
Score 1244
Min fps 8.9
Max fps 95.7

System specs
Ryzen 2700x (stock)
Cooler master 240mm AIO
Asus x470 crosshair hero
16gb g.skill flare X running at 3200mhz
Msi gaming X trio 2080ti

But the final test is this card in a known good PC and re-test. Or get another 2080ti and see if the result changes.

My bad on phone and hit post on accident

In reply to: True

Dunno if the link worked but I was benching at 1080p and same settings but he was running a different cpu which I swayed his score to be a little better but my score to his was 3000 difference. Plus would make sense why Anthem was stuttering so bad when I tested it couple days ago.. had hwmonitor and msi afterburner going clocks sat at 600-1100 when I was playing path of exile and hw said only 45% gpu usage which is weird because back when I first built the system I would get around 1950 mhz at full usage has the slight factory OC. Also not sure if it’s normal fans weren’t spinning until gpu temp hit 62c which it only hit that once because it’s not at full usage..does have built in fan stop though but weird that they start a 62c I thought.

122 °C is smoking hot.

In reply to: it has been very slow but just thought it was my internet

Let's hope it shuts down! Fix that issue fast. I'll look over the rest of the reports RSN.

Just looked over the reports and it appears the 122C reading lines up with subpar performance in the Userbenchmark results. I can't guess why this CPU is way over the max temp I'd allow but when (modern) CPUs get that hot they either shutdown or slow down affecting all areas of performance.

Yes I noticed

In reply to: 122 °C is smoking hot.

I checked hwmonitor and it showed 63c that speccy was taken after I did the Userbenchmark. I can repost another next time I start it up if it will be more accurate

In reply to: it has been very slow but just thought it was my internet

The first thing I'm seeing is your cpu is too hot which leads to throttling.
Fix that.

Your mobo temp is a little warm for only being on for 11 mins.

Yeah I have both side panels off as well

In reply to: Speccy

As stated above speccy was taken after Userbenchmark I’ll take another next time I’m on it for a more accurate result at idle if it’ll be more useful? Also would case itself come into play as the case is fairly small for the hardware in its the thermaltake versa j24 rgb edition

I'm going with "good find."

In reply to: Yeah I have both side panels off as well

That is the cooling system couldn't keep up with the system under load so this explains so much about the problems of both speed and shutdowns. No need to share another speccy until you can get the CPU temp under control at full load.

In reply to: I'm going with "good find."

Should I rearrange the AIO then? I have it at the front of the case with fans in front of it pulling air through it then I have 3 fans exhausting 1 at rear and 2 up top...worst case I can try the stock cooler maybe the AIO is busted

Collapse -

In reply to: Okay

Could be All In One, Air Input Output and what else?

If the CPU got to those temps with the cover off, the problem is not airflow.

Collapse -

In reply to: AIO?

Collapse -
Seems nice enough.

In reply to: Hmm

But the temps tell us otherwise.

So these temps were hit with the case cover off? That points to contact issues from CPU to heatsink. Or a defective cooler system.

Collapse -
Yes all panels were off front and both sides

In reply to: Seems nice enough.

I’ll check the contact when I get home was thinking as well I’ve still got the standard case fans at the front so there the ones pulling the air through (not sure how good they are) should I just swap them over with the fans that came with the AIO

Collapse -
Contact seems good

In reply to: Yes all panels were off front and both sides

I can’t really turn the screws anymore to tighten it on the cpu... I’ve been reading also that speccy has weird readings when it comes to ryzen cpu’s unless it’s been fixed it could be that? I would have thought at 122c the system would shut down well before it even got to that temperature

Idle temp

In reply to: Yeah I have both side panels off as well

Is nice to look at but the more important number is what the cpu temp does under load.

What does hardware monitor show?

With the side panels off I doubt case size comes into play.

Look in your bios to see what it says about cpu temp.

Collapse -
Hwmonitor showed 63c

In reply to: Idle temp

I checked that straight after seeing the speccy reading

Collapse -
That 63c is the mobo temp

In reply to: Hwmonitor showed 63c

Not what we are interested in.

Does hwmonitor show the cpu temp?

Collapse -
My bad

In reply to: That 63c is the mobo temp

59c on hwmonitor

Reads 40c on bios

Collapse -
Are you talking about the mobo temp

In reply to: My bad

Or the cpu temp?

Collapse -

In reply to: Are you talking about the mobo temp

Also did some messing around with power settings and turned off pci express and benchmark on unigine again got what looked to be the fps I should be at but got to the 4th frame and dropped to like 40ish fps... was getting 140-260fps maybe more on first few frames which is where the gpu should be at

Well update cpu was sitting at 64.5c at idle

In reply to: Cpu

And I started smelling something burning so I shut down my pc and about 10sec after that my power supply pops

Collapse -

In reply to: Well update cpu was sitting at 64.5c at idle

You can check what others think but looking around the web the idle temp was closer to 50C so something isn't right.

The power pops? What does that mean? Is it dead again?

You wrote you tightened the screws but that is no assurance the contact area is mated up right. With possible CPU temps over 100C you should think over how this CPU cooler works and not just tighten the screws. All the cooling systems I've used over the years do not rely on the screws being tight as they can be.

Then again there were those two clients that thought heatsink compound was optional since the metals did touch and they torqued up the screws to the max.

Yes definitely higher then normal

In reply to: That's high IMO. ABOUT THE SCREWS.

I wasn’t getting anywhere near that when I first built it was around the 45c mark at idle and then load got to around 60c.

Yes agree should have done a bit more then check the screws but on another note with the psu gone I can buy a higher wattage now wanna go at least 1000w and back to a Corsair psu. Honestly almost over trying to always fix/troubleshoot this damn pc... been having issues for the past month and only getting to play it at its fullest for 2weeks.

Don't see why 1000- Watt PSU is required.

In reply to: Yes definitely higher then normal

I don't see where that's called for. Any decent single rail PSU (600 Watt or maybe higher) should be fine.

In reply to: Don't see why 1000- Watt PSU is required.

I’d like it there just in case I wanna try out a sli/water cooled build. Well I’m sure this will make you guys/girls have a good laugh... that problem I was having I found the cause and I feels the dumbest right now... I had prime 95 still running I seen it in my task manager soooo yeah just did a heaven benchmark and scored 4367

The old rocks in the backpack trick.

Hiker's would add rocks to some poor soul's open backpack as we went up the mountain.

Haha sometimes it’s just the simplest things

In reply to: The old rocks in the backpack trick.

On another note I’m in the market for a 1440p monitor at least 27 inches and 144hz can you suggest any good recommendations... price range isn’t much of an issue as if it’s expensive it’ll just take a little longer to get. Also thanks for the help
