    Aorus confirms i9-10900K all-core 5.2GHz a cinch for its LCS coolers

    To verify cooler performance it ran Prime95 for sustained periods, pulling >320W.

    We can cool it no probs...

    I think you're misunderstanding the fuss when a nominal 95w tdp processor is seen pulling over 300 watts...

    I wonder what the life is like on a chip that pulls so much

    I like how they put "aluminium radiator fins" as though it's some kind of bonus.

    Meh - Each of my tyres have more cores and more treads than that!!

    Would have been better with a square display, I think. Better suited to custom graphics and display modes.

    I wonder if I could do a custom 360 loop for about the same money...

    I appreciate the LCD adds to the cost, but I keep coming back to the Arctic Liquid Freezer II at < £100 and wonder about both performance and cosy difference.

    It doesn't add that much, TBH...
    I have a Cuplex Kryos NEXT with VISION on my CPU. This has an LCD screen, along with connectors for USB, flow monitoring, Aquabus, temperature sensor and alarm. Compared to the version without the VISION module, priced at £64, this pretty comprehensive package only costs £30 more.

    Re: Aorus confirms i9-10900K all-core 5.2GHz a cinch for its LCS coolers

    Honestly, at this kind of price, I'd be looking to dispense with the bells and whistles and go for an Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme 280. All copper radiators make a difference and the use of standard components means you can replace, upgrade and expand from an AIO base. £215 at Scan and one of the few AIOs which can reliably beat an expensive air cooler. If you want lights, screens and things like that to play with, Alphacool isn't the brand for you. Instead that money goes into what is essentially a custom loop, pre built for you and ready to expand... with all the pros and cons of that.

    EDIT: Although I see the one on Scan is an aluminium rad.... which is confusing as reviews say copper.

    EDIT EDIT: I think scan has mislabelled as the specs say the housing for the rad is aluminium. All the reviews I can find say the rad itself is solid copper.

    Re: Aorus confirms i9-10900K all-core 5.2GHz a cinch for its LCS coolers

    Correction: TDP is 125w not 95w.

    ".. the Intel Core i9 10900K processor boasts 10 cores and 20 treads. While it is listed with a TDP of 95W"

    10 core base @ 3.7GHz. I assume it's 125w for typical load or 80% load using a Intel optimised workload mix. It can handle the 10900K @ stock speed and typical boost behaviour (time limits) without much sweat. But high GHz all-core boosts come at high costs.

    The problem is >95C core temps are close to the limit of cooling & safety. If 320w@95C then 250w@80C (eg. 4.8 to 4.9GHz all core), 205w@70C (eg. 4.3 to 4.4GHz all core) assuming 100% fan and slightly warmer if you reduce the fan/pump speed. Considering the top boost is only available when under 70C, YMMV. You may like 6cores@5.2GHz or 8cores@4.8GHz on some workloads for around 200w real TDP.
