    Now is the time of putting my parts in and then 1 month without stock pads & paste to see if it survives... ;)

    Congrats on the system, after the ordeal you've had, you definitely deserve it! You've saved the old parts from Hidevolution haven't you?

    But what do you mean "without stock pads and paste to see if it survives" ? You will remove the paste and pads and run it naked for one month? I'm sorry if I am misunderstanding you...

    Gelids compress so well, much better than Arctic ones I find.

    Perfect :) I'll get 2 sets of the 1.5mm from Amazon then. 1mm seems too thin and 2mm seems a tiny bit too thick even if they do compress well...

    hey guys, can you share Azor's claims a few weeks back saying that they will swap the broken machines. I am having some issues with Dell UAE tech support and need that screenshot now. I tried searching this thread but couldn't find it..

    Add +13w to your pretested delidded i9 9900k and temps would be much closer the chips from Dell. I talk about current running. Not the peak wattage. And neither about the higher Clock speed.

    Higher Power consumption = Higher Heat.

    Dell stock chips
