Put it in a custom loop and that one does 5.1GHz on all 14 cores no AVX offset.
I started with a delidded 7820x setup by Der8auer and then switched to the soldered 10980x. Thats why I have this AIO but I never was happy with the thermals.
Can you show me the brands of your custom AIO. I think the best way to skip any further failing attempt's and wasting money. ( I know.. AMD) but I want to stick to this build. It feels not completed yet.
Nice clocks but diminished returns. Iâ€™m getting the same CPU score or close with a 9940X at 4.8
Right now with ambient temp at 24C Iâ€™m getting 4.8 out of my 10980XE with manual Vcore of 1.25 and max core hitting 88C on classroom blender no matter if itâ€™s a single run or animated for an hour. I got to 5.1 on auto no worries but crapped my drawers when I saw 1.35 Vcore and temps 100C+. I prefer 80C or less but can deal with 90 for an AVX workload. Not that I do them all the time. General use Iâ€™m not passing 60C.*
