It wasn't the tightness of the threads for me. It was the block's holes. The screws have a non threaded part and it literally had to be shoved into the holes.

You have two options. 1, get a small round file and make the holes a tiny bit bigger so the screws literally drop into them. 2. Get some longer screws and springs.

I don't know what the thread type on the AMD back plate is on AM4. I will take a look when I am back with the PC (it's at mum's ATM waiting to come over to my flat).

Damien - there are different levels of PBO on mine. Some are like "Cinebench extreme" and so on.

FTLN I read up that the fans I sold you perform better in a pull scenario rather than push. Might be an interesting test for you if its easy to swap around.

A little tip for you, If you know you are not going to be needing the chip that much set it to AMD Ryzen Balanced in the power settings and set the maximum processor state to 99%, This drops the clocks and volts when it's not fully in use.

When you need all the juice just set it to AMD Ryzen High Performance with 100% on everything, For me personally I leave it on AMD Ryzen Balanced with the 99% setting most of the time as my main game, WoW, Doesn't demand much of anything so temps stay very low, Max I've seen ingame is 45'c and that's with a Corsair A500 cooler.

When I need extra oomph I set it to the aforementioned setting.

I'm in a bit of a dilemma at the moment to be honest with regards to my build, I'm currrently only running the GPU block on the loop and have switched back to a H115i platinum for the CPU because the EK block just does not cool the 3950x optimally. I'm at like 10-15c lower temps with the h115i.


Once EK pay up for the damaged 2080ti (if they pay up) I'm gonna migrate to a larger case and a larger GPU and will be able to use all them EK vardar fans, will test in a pull configuration and let you know.

It might have been bad mount on EK block.

I triple checked the mount and it was sitting nice and flush on the cpu , you can tell from the spread of the thermal paste.


No idea why performace was crappy

Or EK just sucks and are the most overrated water cooling company out there. I will not use their blocks unless they're my only option, HeatKiller all the way.
