    It will come:)

    Yeah, it works damn good for bursty workloads (where you encounter shorter wattage peaks). The differences will be much lower with prolonged high load. This of course depends on the cooling. But, yees Coconut thermal paste is what I prefer on all my hardware.

    Edit. +5 pushed out:)

    It's working great for me, 9700k averages 64-69C in 7+ hours of gameplay, 2070 averages 69-70C as well. Running 9700k with -0.150 UV and 2070 at 1900MHz @ .931V.

    Both undervolted. I do want to send my chip in for a delid and try Phobya Nanogrease though. As I would like to run at 5Ghz and stay around the same temps.

    Edit: Also, can you fix the link to the 51m drivers that are in the ZIP file please.

    Alright, so I finally got done with support and they've decided that I need to have my motherboard replaced. They gave me two options:

    1. Have tech support come to my house in the next 2-3 business days and have it replaced onsite.
    2. Ship my laptop to them in a prepaid box they send me, have it back a few days later. Total turnaround time from today would be 5-7 business days.

    I asked what the lady would do and she said based on they type of laptop that I have, it would be better to send it in. I was thinking the same thing, maybe they have more knowledgeable people in-house, less likely to mess up my laptop?

    Thoughts?

    Still, not better than top quality thermal paste or Liquid metal. Remember Carbonaut is more like a thin blanket that will covers the whole cold plate. The opposite of a very thin layer of thermal paste who will stay put on and only cover the unevenly holes in cold plate / IHS.

    True, it would be nice to see how it stacks up to the traditional graphite pads though.

    I ordered some Gelid Extreme pads and wanted to try a new paste/pad as well. I might order a tube of Phobya Nanogrease to try. If no one posts results before it gets here, I'll post the differences, if any, between it and Kryonaut.

    Wish my pads would be here sooner though, the only place I could find them was in china.
