Anyone CPU Folding with a CLC? Looking for suggestions.


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I've been considering moving my 2 8c intel cpus from air cooling to a CLC,  as of now with an NH-D15 on one and an Assassin III on the other I still have to manually back em off stock boost speeds to keep temps out of the 90's.

 

In the past,  I've had premature failures of CLC systems using them for folding,   specifically  <6mo pump life.    I was wondering if anyone here has been cpu folding on similar power hungry hardware with a longer cooler life.   

 

TIA and happy folding!

Hello stranger. I wish I had a recommendation for you, but I don't CPU fold. I have been running an NZXT Kraken on a GPU though and it has held up.

Well howdy stranger!  No cpu folding?   I'm getting 300+k ppd on my 9900k on 14t lol.    Which kraken do you have?

It's the X63 (280mm) variant.

I use this conversion kit for GPU mounting. Works great!

Looks like a winner to me,  I was seriously considering a 280 as I think its the max I can fit in the top of my pc-a61,  and the only size I can fit in my pc-b70.  Thanks for the input,  I figure if it holds up well to a gpu load it should be able to hold up well to a 200ish W cpu load.

No direct experience with it, but the Arctic Liquid Freezer II is supposed to be a very performant clc and is less expensive.

 

I don't think you'll see a huge performance increase over the D15.  Maybe a few degrees cooler, but not a night and day difference.  Have you tried adjusting your OC and AVX offsets?

 

CPU tasks for [email protected] are now AVX accelerated, and are quite a bit more stressful than the older CPU WUs.
