    Now is that regular paste or LM paste? I'm quite mobile with my machines and my big worry is leakage.

    Enthusiast level paste. Kryonaut, nanogrease etc.

    Linus' simple review test showed about one degree C behind IC Diamond for example.

    It needs a good fitting heatsink. Its very thin and slippery. But, with nothing to oxidise or evaporate, longevity and cleanliness are giant upsides.

    Also paste and liquid metal only move about the place if there's big gobs of it sitting inbetween big gaps on badly fitting heatsink surfaces. If you're worried there's foam dams or other ways to give a bit of surface protection

    Use regular paste or the pad then if you are concerned.

    Nope no idea whats up because on my system using stock TB3 firmware my TB3 HDK/Razer Core/Akitio Node all work fine and the GPU's get detected. How usable they are is a totally different story, since we arent really rich on PCIe lanes.
    8 lanes each GPU -
    4/2 lanes - NVME
    And then TB3 needs another 4.

    7700k only has 16 Lanes.

    My point being, even if you do get it working, its a total waste.

    The two GPUs get 8 each, the CPU has 20 total so the remaining 4 go to the chipset. That can then connect to lots of devices like usb, SATA disk drives, nvme drives and thunderbolt but the peak throughput for it all can't go past 4x gen 3 pci-e lanes worth.
