    Well, I finally got the new hardware assembled. Gonna be a bit before I can test it in any games, but I've done a 20 min. Furmark CPU test, and I'm very happy with the results.

    Unsure if I should ask it here, since its related to the software side of things.. But I'm a bit saddened that Open Hardware Monitor doesn't properly support the Coffee lake CPU's. As I've gotten used the gadget over the years, do any of you know a good alternative to the OHM gadget?

    I use open hardware monitor (v 0.8.0 beta) just fine with asrock z370/8700k. I use core temp as well. (it do work now with my new h115i, with the h100i it set the fans to 100% for some reason).

    I've gotten OHM to work now, and it properly detects 8700k and the temperatures. All I had to do was revert back to version 0.0.4, for some reason that one functions.

    You should be using HWINFO64, by far a superior option for information.

    I agree, and I do use HWINFO64 from time to time, but it lacks ( to my knowledge ) the small, convenient gadget that I get from OHM;

    I love the "gadgets" :) I have them constant on my second monitor to monitor anything from temperatures, fans to status update and weather forecasts.

    Howdy,
    I have a Silver Arrow cooler as well. I'm about to try using it on my new system. I will have the Asus Maximus XI Hero board with a i7-9700K cpu using G. Skill DDR4 ram (4000). I'm hoping I don't need to get a new cooler. The SB-E is no longer made but if you look up the specs it says it supports 1151 socket CPU's. That was 7 years ago and I don't know if the socket numbers are reused over time with newer cpu's being released. If I can't use it I may try going with one of those closed system CPU water coolers. Or maybe I'll get the Noctua. I'll post back once I get everything running.
