    There is IC Diamond 7 and 24, which one?

    How to be careful to avoid the scratches? X method for GPU and line method for CPU?

    7 and 24 are simply tube sizes.

    Scratches tend to occur during removal.

    The scratches don't impact performance or reliability.

    What could happen if laptop is working in temperatures below 10 deg.C with liquid metal (Thermal Grizzly - Condactonaut)? There are some warnings about it.

    Unlikely for it to be operating at that point, doing any arctic exploration?

    :) Well, lets say I am on a bicycle trip, and I need to start laptop. What could happen if there are like 5 °C or -10°C?
    Galium melting point is −19 °C

    I know, it is not most mobile laptop :)

    Where did you see the warning and what does it actually say?

    Just go with a paste if you're worried about it. If you're talking short hops your bag should insulate it well enough that it won't actually hit outside temps. Back when I had a bike that I could start at -10C I could make it most places i was going and pull out a non-frozen laptop from my bag. If you are out long enough to actually hit those low temps, I'd be nearly as worried about condensation.

    Why do you think Kryonaut is not doing a decent job?
    The new Intel CPUs have turbo boost which is designed to take advantage of thermal headroom. If the CPU is cool, say 45C, turbo boost will make it run faster under load until it reaches the throttling temperature. This is great for short bursts of activity, like launching an app, but not so good for games which demand sustained CPU usage. I don't think there is any way to keep it cool without turning off turbo boost, as the maximum power dissipation at the turbo clock exceeds the amount of heat the package can dissipate. So, if turbo boost is active (and it should be - you paid for it), the CPU will run hot under load and throttle (even if you have water cooling, it will throttle - it will run at turbo speed for a little longer, but it will eventually throttle).

    You could try JOHN@OBSIDIAN-PC's Control Center which has a CPU tuning interface using XTU. There are recommended settings for the CPU in your system.
