    CPU clocks question.
    I'm using a non SL 9900k (came with the system). And I have throttle stop loaded with a -.125 on cache and core. Fans on Max Speed in AWCC. Laptop is propped up with some coasters, and I'm using an AGA so no built in GPU is really "adding" to the heat load. I have repasted with Kryo.

    When I run x264 bench (hardest thing I'll do with the system) temps quickly increase into the 95c range after about 10 minutes. This is on the stock 4.7 all core frequency.

    Dropping the all core to 4.6 gets me longer without going into the red, but eventually I hit 93c after about 20-30 minutes. Eventually dropping to 4.5 keeps me out of the red zone for the most part. 4.4 seems to be the complete safety zone.

    Did I just get screwed on the chip? Is this is typical of what we are seeing on clocks for this system?

    No, you're just using the worst thermal paste on the planet! Kryonaut is garbage! Conductonaut is king!

    Yeah, that's pretty normal. I have my i9 9900K clocked at 4.5 GHz on all cores, and the voltage offset set to -110mv. The RTX 2080 undervolted to 925mv at 1960MHz. Very comfortable temperatures during gaming.

    for non-metal, IC Diamond FTW. For Metal, Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut FTW. Everything else pales in comparison.

    I've included the quotes from Voodoo again (with markup to better highlight his questions)...

    He was asking about:
    a) Transferring the warranty from HIDevolution. Any tips for @VoodooChild?
    b) CPU clocks / temps... I don't believe you run the CPU 24x7 at 5GHz on all cores. What are the properties you run within safety margins for temps on the CPU? About 4.5GHz to 4.7GHz (all cores) at about 77C - 82C when taxed?

    Phobya Nanogrease is a better alternative to ICD. Very viscous and durable just like ICD, better thermal rating and results.
