I purchased an a200 Pro and have had it for two weeks now. Overall I have been happy with the system, however I have some concerns with what I am seeing with the thermals with the Ryzen 5950x. First, I do understand the thermal profiles of the Ryzen 5950x, how Precision Boost 2 (not PBO) works and how this relates to how the chip boosts its clock and power consumption until it hits a pre-defined thermal curve. I believe I have realistic performance expectations when considering the form factor of the Corsair One and the size of the AIO radiator in these things. With that said, I am seeing some concerning behavior with the thermals when running load tests both with Cinebench (R20 and R23) as well as even the built in stability test in Ryzen Master. What I am seeing is a near instant rise of CPU core temp jumping from ~60c idle to the 90c limit. Though it's hitting this limit immediately, performance doesn't seem to be suffering too much. That is I get no indicators that the CPU is thermal throttling and I am seeing respectable all core boost clocks of 4.4Ghz when running Cinebench and getting final performance scores that put the chip in the upper realm of performance. Keep in mind that this is under stock BIOS settings with PBO not enabled and considering things such as AIO heat soak characteristics, this behavior seems suspect to me and wondering if I am dealing with some sort of defect or misconfiguration. I did a bit of troubleshooting myself by opening up the system and making sure there wasn't any obvious issues such as pumps not working/working well and that the AIO block was under enough tension on the socket. Didn't find anything worth noting. With myself being an early adopter of this product, I was hoping if others with the a200 Pro are seeing similar behavior and also hoping if I could get some kind of verification from Corsair engineers that this is just how the system is designed to function. If not, see if there is a potential problem here either with the BIOS settings/motherboard being used or if I am dealing with a defective AIO or such.
Hi there! Just going to try and keep the question simple but happy to provide additional specs if needed! I'm debating whether to mount my Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT vertically but only if it will be thermally beneficial or sit around the same as horizontal mounting. I will be keeping the 3 front fans as stock, then attaching 1 rear and 2 bottom ll120's and a 240 platinum rad at top with the 2xll120's that come with it. What I want to know is if the vertical mount will have enough space with the bottom fans installed? And will I see any change in thermals this way? Many thanks
