Max OC Testing
For our max OC testing, we have configured our CPU to run 4700MHz on all cores, set the voltage to 1.25V, and configured memory to XMP mode. This yields an approximate power at the wall of 600w under load (a 500w differential from idle, which pulls about 100w). This results in the CPU running at 4.7GHz on all cores during the looping rounds of Cinebench R20. The only test that completed without throttling was the Max Fans and 100% pump speed test.
Max Fans – 100% Pump Speed
With each AIO working as hard as possible, the Enermax LIQTECH II 360 produced a 95-degree Celsius temperature and the Corsair H115i Platinum arrived just behind it at 96 degrees Celsius. If we backed off the maximum fan level for either unit, temperatures would jump to 98 degrees and begin to throttle.
