Feels good finally having my workspace spotless. Just gotta finish the radio and EE lab, which is halfway done and ill be good!

@freemo oh.... this is good. does the GPUs (4) not work?

@freemo for me it is much warmer at that point.... 🌡️

@kranfahrer Are we talking about the weather or are you asking about the temperature of the GPUS?

@kranfahrer Ahh ok, VERY NICE cooler you have going there. My CPU is air cooled but all 4 GPUs are water cooled. The water cooling however comes built-in and sealed with the cards so no jumps or reservoirs needed.

I'm honestly not sure what temperature they run at, all I can tell you is I have yet to find a game capable of maxing it out to the point that it thermally throttles. I'll have to check next time what they run at.

You have me seriously considering that little cooling setup you have going though, whats the brand and model?


yes, the good cooling is very important. i think, the best setup comes from 'next'.

Maybe you can make a folding test. 🙃

your machine will then work under full load and you will see problems immediately.

@kranfahrer I run this at full load all the time, just no need for it right now. It works well at full load the water cooling on the 4 gpus makes a huge difference.

If your curious how hot I can run them under load I can run a test for ya, but I have no need to do so for my self.


I can imagine it. thanks. a very good machine✔️

@kranfahrer let me run a GPU benchmark on it for you real fast see what I get.

@kranfahrer downloading and installing basemark to see how well this does on a graphics benchmark (I usually use these for computation not graphics, and they are designed for that technically)

@freemo what do you calculate so laboriously. very interesting🔍

@kranfahrer So running a benchmark for a few minutes to max out one of the GPU's it reaches 60C. Couldnt really get it too much past that without overclocking.

I mostly compute datascience/big data stuff. AI too.

@freemo 60° for a water cooling setup very good.

with 112,5% overclocking i have ~70-72°
this is (my) maximum for a 24 hours maschine.

@kranfahrer I dont usually overclock myself as I want a long-life out of my equipment and need it to be reliable.

I am running a different benchmark and this one can only get it to 52C... so yea seems 60C is really the max I can push it.

@kranfahrer By the way I only know these are liquid cooled, I'm not sure if its water though. I suspect it uses gas transition cooling and uses some sort of very low boiling temperature liquid like heat pipes do.


a liquid.. no water? kraken systems is the same. (NZXT Kraken Z73)

@kranfahrer oh really, I will definately consider that for my next build then.. for what i do i have no need to do my own watercooling (the GPU watter cooling is how these cards come)... but i might do it just for coolness factor at that point.

@kranfahrer Ok managed to get it a bit hotter.

Before the tests were running long enough to heat up the cooling fluid, so the CPU was staying cool.

However if i keep it at 100% workload for 15 minutes or so the liquid in the coolers slowly heat up to 65 C and max out and the GPU itself gets to 77C at that point. Keeping it maxed out it appears to be as hot as I can get it.

That said if the GPU relaxes the load for even a second or two the liqud quickly cools to 50 C after a second or two.

@freemo nice.

For long-term tasks, 72° seems to be the best. (i mean 24hours7days tasks)


@freemo.... the rtx cards work with 55% continuous load at this temperature.

@kranfahrer Yea mine was 100% continuous load.

After 15 minutes of continuous load I saw the water temperature still had 5 C more before it maxed out. The GPU junction temperature itself had a lot more breathing room at 25C more before it maxed out.

So yea this thing is specced to run at full speed continuously.
