    Interesting! I wonder what he means by mismatches and the tool being made. And also, the vapor chamber heatsink has an extra pipe running in the opposite side of the fan nearest the CPU, where would that “fit” inside our R1’s layout? I wanna see more![/QUOTE] [/QUOTE]

    He later told me he cant speak English well and I asked him to reply in Chinese, sadly google translator doesnt well translate the meaning of his sentences.

    In my understanding he wants to produce a heat sink that you dont need to reallocate screw locations.

    Also, the pictures in Redit/taibo shows Vapor chamber on the CPU only, he wants it on GPU as well.

    I sent him a message yesterday about the progress, lets hope he replies soon.

    Regards.

    You can open the case and check it yourself, I remember I selected 2400Mhz ram and I got 2600mhz.

    A lot of time you getting more than what you asked for in "Custom Build Pcs/Laptops"

    2060 is missing the side radiators on the heatsink, not sure whether the 2070 does.

    The mounting, on the leaked vapor chamber heatsink, is different and wont fit the current 51m mounting. He was likely talking about that.

    Indeed, I wont assume most users wont risk drilling the motherboard. Probably dell will keep use intel i990k for the time being and upgrade the cooling solution.

    I wouldnt be surprised if they switch over Ryzen.

    Only the 2060 heatsink is different.

    Yes my previous Area-51m had 2x 2TB Samsung 960 PRO's in RAID 0. Data strip size was set to 64K with the RAID Array created through the BIOS

    I’m not sure I understand. So this is just some guy who wants to improve upon the 51m cooling solution by making a custom heat sink and possibly selling it to others on eBay, taobao etc? So then, why have people been saying a heatsink “leaked”?
