    This is awesome. Thanks.

    I'm going to start working through these over the next few days. If there are any logs/datapoints/tests you would like me to run, including stock, I'm happy to do it and report back.

    For starters, HWINFO with certain preferences changed/tweaked. For example Enable PCH thermal device and EC support which are disabled by default for precise measurements from all sensors under EC section.
    You need to check off each option and close HWINFO and then re-open it to reflect the changes. If your PC gets hung or gets non-responsive uncheck PCH thermal device and EC support.

    Not exactly like this. They use paste printed thickly in rectangles on chip positions on the heatsink, like every other factory. The problem is that their thermal design is so borderline because of squeezing the dimensions that many get direct thermal throttling under load. Funnily, this heatsink if pasted properly was in fact adequate in the 9550/9560, except for the VRMs which don't have a heatsink. And with iunlock's mod that could be fixed with some effort.

    Not clear regarding the i9, but I don't think it is worth the money, considering the uncertainty if there will be any advantage.

    Just filed down sinks and connected them to the 3 main chokes with 3m tape. Padded RAM and CPU/GPU to case. Running 3dmark stress test now - it used to score 95.5%.

    edit: 97.7 on timespy - passed.

    I didn't run the stress test until after everything was said and done but I think I scored 98.7%. I have no idea if that's good or not though, lol.

    Interesting, I'll try firestrike. Perhaps it's more difficult to pass?
