    Issues with Rendering System

    I have a client whose system keeps crashing during rendering.

    At first I thought it was because he was running AutoCAD 2020 on an nvidia non-quadro GPU.

    Then I noticed something else. He's using this ITX Case and a low profile heatsink on a 9700K. At idle, it sits about a bout 60-70c, and freezes up even before it gets to rendering. P95 hits 100c almost instantly without going above about 4ghz.

    I just want to confirm "Duh, that heatsink is terrible" or if it could possibly be something, anything else, before I go about having to try and fit a cooler into that ITX case.

    Media: Dual Intel Drake Xeon @ 600mhz | Intel Marlinspike MS440GX | Matrox G440 | 1024mb Crucial PC-133 @ 166mhz | Windows 2000 Pro

    The heatsink is rated for 70W and the CPU uses 95W.

    Here's the heatsink your client is using. https://www.newegg.com/thermaltake-e...-417-_-Product

    Theres plenty of space in there for a “real” cooler. Should be able to fit most non-monster towers on it (since it sits flat).

    Alternatively, you could mount a 120/140 AIO to the rear fan mount in exhaust. The Corsair H80i v2 has a double-thick rad, and should handle the 9700K no problem.

    Edit: looking at the specs, a Dark Rock 4 from BeQuiet! Should fit. Thatd be all the cooling youd need.

    So we definitely confirmed it was overheating. That said, the customer is just going to pick it up and 'try and fix it himself' now that he knows the issue. So done deal, I guess.

    I'm honestly surprised it's rated for 70W..
