None of the above. Your CPU should be a separate add in the dashboard and will be listed by model number (AMD 3900X.. etc). That will be its own box in iCUE with individual core temps, assuming...

Well no, it’s like increasing your speed when there is no hill. +1C coolant temp leads to +1C CPU temp, so the penalty for waiting only exists is you suppress fan speed increases with change in...

Afraid so. BeQuiet SW3 PWM fans do not get on with Corsair PWM controllers, cooler or Commander Pro. SW3’s are a bit finicky with their PWM response, but I don’t know where the blame lies. There are...

Because coolant temperature is so strongly influenced by room/case temperature, most people are better off creating their own fan curves on the cooler. The presets are based off a 20-23C room temp....

What missing from the graphs above is the control variable. I am sure it defaults to CPU temp, but that is not a great choice since it has nothing to do with case ambient or exhaust temperature. ...

Are you sure the fans are set to Quiet? 1860 rpm is about the 100% max on those fans with radiator resistance. If the fans are always there or essentially stuck, pop the two fan connectors of the...

That is why coolant temperature (H100i Temp) is the default setting and you should leave it there. The fans on the radiator do not cool the cpu. Heat from the cpu is conducted away through the metal...

That will work, although once you get the LL up you may want 3 more. It's a bit annoying to need another SATA connection and another lighting channel. Hmmm.... I just though of a snag. I am not...

2 x 280mm will certainly provide good results. I am running that with a 2080 Ti and 8700K@5.1 GHz. While the 9900K might pull another 25W, my VBIOS is opened up to 400W on the GPU which likely...
