      I got this one at Christmas. As many have noted, cooling is a real problem with these.

      With custom everything, it's difficult to improve cooling as you can with a normal case and components.

      It is possible to get better cooling, but involves more cost and dicking around.

      My solution is to leave the case cover off.

      • +5 votes

        Get a Noctua U9S cpu cooler from newegg. Bolts straight onto the stock mounts.

        You will need some m3x20mm bolts to attach the Noctua mount that you can get from bunnings.

          How are the temps now?

      • +2 votes

        I do the same, I don't know why everyone talks about the CPU cooler, mine never gets above mid 60's even with everything on ultra, if anything its the GPU that gets too hot but the case cover solves this. If anything it needs an intake fan and a beefier exhaust one.

        •  

          Yes because with stock cooler the CPU will thermally throttle to keep the temps down. What happens is it goes flat out with normal turboboost, the temps go over 90 then it throttles the clock to keep temp under control.

          •  

            @lunchbox99: Yes but if its throttling you wouldn't expect the CPU to throttle to such an extent that the temps drop by 30 degrees. I'm saying that in my usage I've seen absolutely no signs of throttling whatsoever.

            •  

              @Dibs: Well you haven’t pushed it hard enough. If I do a h265 cpu encode it easily would hit 90+ with the stock cooler. Then it would throttle from the usual boost of 5.1GHz to something lower (can’t remember).

              There are numerous discussions on the dell support forums confirming this observation.

              Also throttling doesn't lead to lower temp. It maintains the same temp (eg 90C-ish) under full load but at lower performance.

        • +3 votes

          With a 1440p ultrawide (and not leaving the case open) playing something like Control with RTX enabled will hit 100C almost instantly with this system and stock cooler, before backing off to low 90s.

          I bought this in December and would recommend anyone with it switch to a better cooler and add a front intake fan or you're going to suck the life out of it pretty quickly. I grabbed the Noctua U9S and some Noctua 92mm fans and it was an easy install for under $200, but even then it still runs a bit hotter than I'd like.

          Great system apart from that.

          • +1 vote

            @hats: How did you install an intake fan, are there standard ports on the motherboard you can plug those into?

      •  

        Same deal. How so you know if cooling is an issue? My sons runs nearly 24\7 over school holidays in an non air conditioned room.

        He hasn't complained.

        •  

          It mainly gets loud. If he leaves the side panel off it'll be fine.

        If you go for the xps 8940 that has the 10700k it has a proper tower cooler. Which makes it a beast for the price. It also comes with vram heatsink.

    •

    I got this in December. Runs great, all the latest games on Ultra at 1440p minimum. Some concerns about the PSU but its been fine. I added additional hard drive and Ram after.

  •  

    What brands are the components.. ?

    •  

      Ummm… I would assume Dell branded.

    •  

      Most components would be Dell OEM products. RAM and storage would be other brands which I think might vary

    Is the Noctua NH-U9S a drop-in replacement for the XPS 8940's tower cooler? What about for the G5s? Recall some mention of the latter systems coming with the Intel stock cooler, but can't find the source now.

      Yes it is but you need m3x20mm bolts from bunnings to attach the noctua mount. You can get the cooler cheap on newegg.

      Not sure why you'd replace the stock cooler with something very similar, here is a pic of it https://ibb.co/98cwkM3

        I think the Noctua has more heatpipes, but yeah, that cooler looks fine.

    Is this the dell build I've read that has terrible heat throttling limiting the actual performance of the PC? What would the point be of having a 3070 if you can't use it to it's full potential due to perfomance throttling?

      I've got this system with a 1660Ti. If you take the side panel off the performance is fine.

        lol

        •  

          I should clarify, temps are fine. Main difference is the GPU fan is a lot less noisy.

          •  

            @Dibs: That's pretty bad. With the extra wattage of the K series CPU, and the 3070gpu, it's going to be even hotter. I had a look on a forum, people are adding extra case fans, but not doing much. Evidently not enough air can come through the front

            •  

              @bobvegas: this has been running last 2 weeks in my garage and the GPU temps don't seem to be running too hot…

          I have the same system and I can say it is a beast, I haven't tested cpu temps but it always almost never reaches above 50% of the cpu in task manger also when playing fortnite the highest the gpu went was 76°C. However I have two displays connected to the gpu.
          Also when you do day to day stuff the cpu often is at 6% don't know if this will help, but yeah.

        Is that the G5 or XPS?

    damn, I bought the HP Elitedesk G6 800 for $1147 and this deal blow is out of the water.

    The XPS tower looks to be similar size to the HP SFF

    Similar height and depth, only the width is different.

        Aren’t they essentially the same other than the K variant being overclockable. Except CPU overclocking is locked in the BIOS and you wouldn’t want to OC with the current cooler anyway

        • +1 vote

          No integrated graphics with F labelled intel chips

        •  

          the k series doesn't come with a stock cooler, so they put the big cooler shown in the the pictures/graphics on, the f series have a substandard cooler

        •  

          Absent overclocking, there's still a significant difference between the K and non-K as the former has higher power limits at stock. Some motherboards allow increasing the power limits on the non-K so that it performs pretty much like a K, but don't know if the Dell is one of them.

          The difference is also seen in the reports that both coolers Dell uses are considered inadequate for the respective CPUs - that the stock Intel cooler (or whatever they're using that looks similar) isn't good enough for the 10700F, and their tower isn't good enough for the 10700K. Suspect the tower would be pretty decent for the 10700F.

    • +2 votes

      Different aesthetic, XPS also appears to have an SD card reader and optical drive. CPU is the overclockable variant but overclocking is locked in BIOS anyway so I’m not sure why they included it

      • +2 votes

        Yeah with a 3070 you can make ~$6-$7 a day profit mining at the moment. Pretty decent. My rig has a 3070 and 4x1060s and makes about $20 a day on average profit after electricity costs.

            @Michael1983: Nicehash is super simple to use for beginners and seems to be paying out pretty much the same as ethermine and some of the other ones I've tried. Nicehash pays out bitcoin and can be mined directly into a coinbase wallet.

      Wow cheers. Confirms my fears - great spec on paper but the OEM junk parts (cpu cooler, ram, and possibly mobo and psu) really drag this system down to the point the price is just barely a good deal. What a shame.
