You are better off with i7 4910. Cheaper and easier to cool than the 4930. At stock clocks, their performance are same.
I follow these steps:
Install Gtx 1060
Mod inf file
Disable signature driver
Install modded driver
Display driver uninstaller.
Don't forget DDU.
I bought the turbo fans from cicichen as well. The Gpu one has fitting issue. The CPU is good but whenever I plug the power supply, the fan will...
You should try the 4 heatpipe for cpu from Cicichen as well. It really does better than stock one.
I'm using the 5 heatpipe on my gtx 1060 with 0.5 mm pad as suggested by the seller and it makes good contact. Copper shim is not needed.
Thank you. I didn't know about the PWM wire.
I have used the fan on my Ranger. The improvement is negligible.
Wrong forum mate. You should ask here:
The one I have is A15 downloaded directly from Dell. I believe it will reduce the CPU performance by 10- 15% because of Spectre security update. I...
The laptop. Not vBIOS.
I used to have same problems and I got it fixed by flashing stock BIOS. Still don't know why it's fixed really.
The die contact is the most important. The other areas are not as much if the card runs generally cool.
What I suggest is replacing those 2 mm pads with 0.5 mm ones.
Like @Maxware79 said, you can remove all the pads and apply thermal paste between...
I think you should try 0.5 mm pads to see how it goes. The copper shim is okay, but not ideal imo. Direct contact is best.
From the picture that you posted earlier, it seems to me the pads you used are quite thick (2mm). I use only 0.5 mm and they make contact already....
I didnt know it's that hard for the M17x r4. For my Ranger, the shim is not required.
Did you use the screws that came with the 5 pipe heatsink?...
Maybe you bought the right one for your M17x R4. I bought 5 pipe for my Ranger and tried to fit into my M17x R4 and didn't fit at all. So I had to...
