    Thanks!

    What settings do you need? I used the default Modern OSD layout and added GPU voltage and power, and CPU VID, using the HWiNFO plugin in Afterburner.

    PCH is the Z370 chipset, it's a chip on the motherboard that manages data flow between CPU, RAM, and I/O devices (storage and peripherals).

    The PCH on this system is on the underside of the motherboard. You can see it here, it's the silver square in the center, right above the CMOS battery. The actual chip itself looks like this, but on our system it's covered by a foil heatspreader.

    Unfortunately I can't tell you how my PCH temps compare, because my PCH sensor doesn't seem to work. It just shows 0C all the time:

    The PCH is supposedly good up to 110C, so while yours is pretty hot, it's not at the thermal trip point yet. The 97C may have just been a brief spike, whereas it normally sits between 80-90C. That being said, the PCH is usually stressed the most during I/O-intensive workloads rather than gaming.

    I know you're not keen on tinkering with the system, and as someone who's done it before, it is a bit of an involved process to get the keyboard and top panel off as there are a lot of screws. But what some people have done is taken off the foil and replaced it with a thermal pad to passively cool the PCH using the metal panel and keyboard as a heatsink. You can see here how there's actually a cutout in the plastic shielding for the PCH. I didn't do that to mine though because the PCH is right under the "L" key on the home row, and heating up the keyboard where my fingers usually rest when typing is a big no-no.

    P750tm1

    The resellers of regions that use it would be the ones to check.

    We are ready for i9-9900K and i7-9700K, now testing 8C/16T BIOS to verify proper operation and thermals. All of our Sky "C" series models would support both of these CPUs.

    [links to own site removed by moderator - read forum rules]

    Please note that if you plan to use new 8C/16T 9th gen CPU, you would need to update to 8C/16T BIOS with the older CPU (i.e. 8700K) first, then after successful BIOS update, change the CPU to 9th gen, otherwise the system won't POST.
    We expect to formally launch 9xxx series CPUs in late October, for pre orders you can check with our Sales Team

    What's the difference between the P751TM and P775TM audio/speakers? Subwoofer for the P775TM?
