Starting to believe that there is something wrong with my R7 2700X. Recently posted another topic back when I was using the Lian-Li PC-O11 and the 2700X stock cooler. I was concerned after trying many solutions so I ended up investing in a Meshify C and Kraken X52 AIO after no luck in getting temperatures down with the previous setup. This is at completely stock settings other than XMP set to my RAM's rated 3466mhz. I did try dialing it back to 3200 but that did nothing. Also, if it helps, my motherboard disables XFR 2.0 from default. I've tried this with XFR both on and off, not much changes.
It may be a 'safe' temperature according to AMD but I am still uncomfortable with it and it blows my mind that a case with MUCH better airflow and an AIO, nothing changes. I guess that is whats bugging me the most.
So, now I'm getting the following using OCCT.
6 minutes in: 84.75c and steady at 1.15v - 1.28v
Idle: 63-75c and vcore around 1.24-1.48v (weird that there's more voltage at idle?)
Temperatures fluctuates a lot. Vcore fluctuates a lot at idle. Twice, temps has dipped all the way down to 55c or so but soon jumps back up to 69-75c
Airflow. Two fans are on the top as exhaust, AIO is in the front with the two fans as intakes (mounted against the case pushing through the radiator), 1 fan in rear as exhaust. My plans were to put the AIO on top, however, my motherboard doesn't allow.
This is my updated list.
