    i have a Samsung Odyssey.

    i just updated and it actually fixed a lighting issue i have been having since the last update. after the previous update the keyboard would revert back to factory blue (i run an all red theme) after waking up from sleep until i opened and clicked any tab on AWCC. now it is back to staying red after wake up. (previously tried the full uninstall and reinstall method with the older command center a few times to no change. only the new update fixed it).

    On the subject of cooling, testing a direct die vapor chamber mod. So far very promising results, bros :)

    A solid 10c shaved off, and this is at much higher ambient temperatures than my 9900K.

    4.37mm BartX IHS 9900K R15 5Ghz package max 65c (16c min temp)

    3mm Vapor chamber 9900KF R15 5Ghz package max 73c (27c min temp)

    And cores deltas are 2-4c within each other.

    You can read the about the direct die mod here. There are links to where this particular vapor chamber can be bought there. Since the vapor chamber 3mm tall, it very closely matches a stock 9th gen Intel IHS. However, the heatsink needs to have a 56x56mm clearance and decent flatness for proper contact. As well as removing the intel ILM. Definitely not a mod I would recommend for the faint of heart, since I'm not sure how this impacts a unified heatsink in terms of GPU die contact.

    I've been screaming this for a while now, and not alot of people wanted to take my word for it so i'm glad you did it, and made it working !

    VC is laptops are the way to go ! Having a VC that covers the whole base of the mobo would he alot better than using pipes to transfer the heat and rely on the phase changing.

    Razor has done some good VC builds but due to bad QC it wouldn't matter since your machine would die prematurely.

    I'm thinking about starting my own heatsink workshop. Something specialised in creating high performance heatsinks for small tolerance systems.
