Hi! I have the following config:
- r5 5600x
- asus rog strix b550-f gaming wifi
- thermalright aro-m14o
- couple of 140mm Frontal Fans
- one 120mm top fan
- HyperX Fury 16 ГБ (8 ГБ x 2) DDR4 3600 МГц CL17 (HX436C17FB3K2/16)
- gigabyte 3060 ti gaming oc pro 3.0
- nvme samsung 970 pro ssd
I want to upgrade the cpu to 5900x, but I do not want to use water cooling, i would like to stay on air cooling. Also I want to get the silent PC in idle/lowload mode.
I'm planning to use the PC for:
- virtual box
Is my current cooler enough for 5900x if I will use lite PBO raise only, e.g. curve optimize, PPT/EDC limit, DOCP 3600MHz. E.g., limit PPT up the default 142W.
I prefer the low temperatures than the the higest frequencies, so, do not mind to limit maximum frequency up to 4.8 (pbo+0MHz) or even 4.6MHz.
How much performance I will lose on air cooling relativly to water cooling using PBO like described above?
I would suggest asking on some OC forums owners threads (ocuk, overclock.net are a couple to start).
AMD suggested AIO cooling for a reason, but an underclock/undervolt (much lower performance if your happy) could work.
