    I'm not sure, but I think it's running hotter now then it did in the beginning. Could it be that I have to replace the thermal paste already? Or is the chance higher that I just remember wrong?
    I assume you've taken a hoover to the inside of the case to get rid of any dust stuck in the heatsinks?

    Actually, thermal paste should be replaced once in a while just to make sure it hasn't dripped around or it hasn't solidified unnaturally. Obviously if you did everything perfect and with top end paste just take a hoover to the case, see what happens.

    when my computer is overheating I just pour some water in the case it cools it down right away

    AMD becoming good again, what?

    I'm considering buying a new PC but at this stage am essentially clueless; I haven't paid any attention to new releases for about 4-5 years. Any suggestions on where to start? (OP looks abandoned, or is it still relevant?)

    What will you be using the PC for and are you going to build it yourself?

    Playing games mostly, and general internet shenannigans.
    Happy to build it myself, it's been a while but unless things have changed drastically it's pretty much like lego.

    I don't really care about overclocking and the like for it's own sake, the main thing is I'd like something that can run things on highish settings without crying and preferably will last another 4-5 years before needing a kick.

    Well I wouldn't recommend one of the new AMD chips if you're not planning on doing something that can utilize all 8 cores. What's your budget and where would you be buying the parts online?

    Practically this Ryzen 7 is the biggest shake-up in ~6 years, and Intel have already reacted by dropping their prices.
    I'd wait a few months if you can, and see what the mid-ranged Ryzen releases bring. No doubt some 4-6 core, 8-12 thread chip will be released with equal or possibly higher single thread burst clockspeed & performance, for less than the top-end 7 costs.
    If you won't/can't wait months, at least wait a few days/weeks and get a not-totally-bleeding-edge-investor price Ryzen, or be sure Intel doesn't follow up with an immediate additional price decrease. Or at least ensure you're paying the best price for an item, rather than any extra for sudden dip in availability/peak in demand. I imagine quite a few people have been waiting for this resumed price war. Now that most ambiguity is clearing up, triggers will be pulled on delayed purchases.

    I think things will look much better for Ryzen in games in a week or two when more in-depth and less rushed testing can be done. There's a fairly major issue at the moment that causes the 8-core Ryzens to lose performance when Windows moves a thread from one 4-core block to the other. This, along with BIOS memory timing bugs, is what's causing the performance drop in games. The fix is trivial, but very few reviewers knew about it.

    Regarding my i7 5820k
    It does not run super hot, and the overclock is decent. I get 6x 4.1 Ghz up from the default 3.3 (or 3.7 with boost)
    But it's easily hitting 60 - 70 C
    People overclock the same chip to 4.5Ghz with similar cooling and getting less heat.
    I just remember mine never hitting 60 C .. but then again .. maybe I remember wrong.

    Anyhow, I ordered Noctua NT H1 paste. Will make some before and after benchmarks.

    Is U2715H still the go-to 27' 1440p IPS monitor? Its hovering around 450 eur and im considering grabbing one, mostly for work at home (2 monitors almost mandatory for dev job) and ofc for some 1440p gaming goodness.

    Multi-monitors at 27" each?
    My U2515H has been great so far, very thin bezels too if I were to try fit multiple >24" things on a small desk.

    I have one 24" dell, this 27 would be the new primary.

    Edit: high refresh rate I don't care about, not playing csgo so I don't need the skill boost either huehue
    Ultrawide looks cool but my budget is 500 and ips with solid build is a must.

    It isn't necessarily the thermal paste (I use MX-1 for example).

    Depends a lot on what motherboard you're using. I suspect I actually killed my 4930k with overclocking (voltage degradation) and I'm looking into what I did wrong (can't find anything tbh, which is awful). Usually it's the VTT that kills it, depends on the motherboard and RAM voltages as well (how stable they are etc).

    Anyway, looking into getting a 4960X from somewhere and see if it can carry 64GB RAM better than this one could (my old deceased 4930k could do 4.1GHz). Dunno how good the new one will go, though, got some killer Elpida PSC RAM sticks to test it out and then work from there.

    I changed the thermal paste, did not change anything. At most 1 - 2 C

    Encoding a h264 file again for 5 minutes + pre run.
    Stock clock with turbo to 3.6ghz

    Current | Min | Max | avg


    post thermal change. The room temperature might have been 1 - 2C higher Forgot to measure it.




    CPU fans where fixed at 50%, case fans at 25%.

    They could be lower but I'm not seeing a big problem with those load temps

    yup, I think it's tine.

    Adjusted fan cure, overclocked to 4.3ghz (did before, but never stable)
    Now I upped the voltage to 1.260

    Cores stay under 70, average 61 to 67C.
    But package is 76c


    Is that something to worry about?
    Currently rendering in blender and encoding with ffmpeg. Would have given my a bluescreen with my old overclock.

    Aren't newer intel chips rated for 70C maximum? I know older Q6600/9550s could get quite hot with no problem but my current i5 was listed at a maximum load temperature of 70C from intels specs
