>Enthusiast is a state of mind
I 100% agree. While I do own a radeon VII I actually bought it for modding. Sadly the project didn't pan out but eh. Some of my previous fucking about for fun included strapping a fan to the rear of my motherboard socket to prevent my 8320e from hardlocking under load because the 970 mobo it was on was in no way capable of handling the 4.8ghz I was pushing through it.

I once strapped 2 delta fans to a silver arrow heatsink to cool it. Kept it below 40c at room temperature but the fans could be clearly heard in the next room through a solid brick wall.

Yeah but I was also cooling the socket.

Duct tape them to the rear of the socket and crank threadripper.

You do realise CPU-Z merely reads chip data from a database right? It doesn't report TDP accurately because no manufacturer supplies that information - its merely a manufacturer spec.

In other words, the second you do any sort of under or overclocking the TDP measurement is useless.

The board was never rated for it and even by bolting the stock cooler over the socket/rear of vrms I couldn't keep it cool enough from hard locking when going over 4.7ghz.

In addition, extra motherboard cooling to handle the clocks.

This let me push 4.7ghz on a motherboard never rated to handle such power draw. I also have a similar setup for my crazy clocked 290x to keep vrm1 (i.e the hot one) cool enough to feed 1.4v into the core.

>Looking at ya numbers, you did great. You got extra cooling of the board?

To be fair my mobo is only rated for 140w chips and under that sort of torture test the chip is probably pulling near 200w.

>Explain this

Good case airflow covers vrm cooling.

Pic actually only slightly related - its what I had to do to slam 200w through a mobo rated for 140w.

Use an anti-housefire fan™ and crank that shit up.

That board is good for 4.5ghzish with an E processor. Its when you start going above that do you really need to start slamming the voltage up. I guesstimate - assuming you can cool the chip and have decent airflow in your case - you might be able to do 4.5ghz on 1.3v or so.

As long as you keep testing and increase the multiplier and voltage slowly you won't damage anything. Its idiots that decide 5ghz or bust and slam 1.5v through their chip from the get-go that nuke everything. I know i'm running my motherboard out of spec and as such am prepared to see it all explode.

Option B is to do pic related.

> This may be a retarded question,

It is but you're looking for a solution in the wrong direction. The secret to good temps almost regardless of specific cpu/motherboard setup is good case airflow.
