Hi,
I swapped some parts of my Aurora R1 2009.

- Windows 10
- Asrock X570m pro4
- Ryzen 7 3800x
- Boxed wraith prism
- Asus Dual OC 8GB GTX 1070
- GSkill V 16 Gb 3200mhz
- Samsung Evo Plus

I Continued using the Stock 825W PSU (Should i replace it with a newer 650W PSU?)
Also the old HDD‘s Stay as Long as they do work.

At the Moment the whole System is Running and also the Alienware MIO with and all Command Features are Running.

CPU Temp Gaming: 73 degree
CPU Temp Stresstest: 85 degree
GPU Temp Gaming: 80 degree

I will swap the 1070 with an 3070 / 3080 as soon as possible.

I thought about using a Noctua DH 15 or a DH15s for cooling the CPU.
But will this fit?

I ordered a corsair am4 retention Ring.
6 month ago i swapped the Stock R1 CPU Cooler with a R4 01YGW Cooler.
This would be Plug and Play.

So would you recomend rewiring and use the new PSU?
What would you recomend for cooling the CPU?

with best regards
Ewok

The Upgrade was almost Plug and Play.
One Problem was, That the water Pump Blocked the Speed Control of the Radiator Fan In the Command Control.
Its now Controled By the BIOS as „CPU 1 Fan“.

Ryzen Master is set to „Auto OC“.
With 1600 RPM Radiator Fan i get 75 degrees in Stress Test.
in normal Situation it goes up to 67-68 degrees.
I removed the wraith prism fan from its Socket. Now It is acting for better airflow with Max 900 RPM.

GPU Temps are now reduced to max 76-77 degrees.
Dont know its because of the Wraith prism or the better Space through the AIO.

The Rad-Fan should plug into the top light strip Sys_Fan (System Fan) header, & the MIO board has its own CPU fan cable that plugs into mthrbrd CPU_Fan header … generally u can tweak the Rad-Fan speed in the Bios &/or using the mthrbrd's included fan software (set up a Temp vs Fan Speed curve etc)

I'd say if the original 875w PSU works, run it another year or so, but aftrmrkt PSUs do fit & do work

I already linked the radiator Fan to the System Fan plug.

the MIO Boards cable is connected to the „CPU Fan 1“. I do Not have a „Fan Header“ to Plug in?
