    Someone who has one can likely confirm what speeds are supported and what BIOS options exist, if any.

    Just made my purchased with @GenTechPC, was told they'll have it in stock this week so they'll have them shipped out by the first week of June. I'll be traveling out of state soon so can't wait to bring it along. Hop on the Spring sales and config from 16g x 1 to 8g x 2 to save a bit of money. I also bought a 960 pro 512gb from amazon, will be sticking that bad boy in here and the preinstalled m.2 sata will be used as storage.

    Which paste upgrade option would you choose at gentech? Which will last longer? Looks like you can get either the IC Diamond or Coollab Liquid Ultra

    I didn't get much input on this question in the other thread. I can only guess that liquid metal formulas have the potential to last longer, since they likely have little or no silicones/polymers or other compounds that might degrade with temperature cycles. Most liquid metal thermal interface materials are a Gallium alloy that presumably is not degraded by high temps or frequent cycles. I'm not sure if they have the potential to pump out or leech out over time or have some other failure mode. That said, it's quite possible some of the more standard pastes like IC Diamond have lifespans long enough that the difference isn't important.

    I ordered CLU, but honestly I think simply removing the questionable automated paste blob and replacing it with a quality manual application with a quality paste is an improvement whichever one you choose.

    My question is how hard is it to re-paste CLU later, anyone know?

    Aww man I didnt see that the CLU was a free upgrade hmm might PM Ken and ask if I can switch it.

    *EDITED* Got a reply from GenTechPC, switched my free upgrade to CLU instead of IC Diamond!

    Ken at GenTech was extremely quick with responses to all my numerous questions and changes, highly recommended. If the Aero 15 is as good as the customer service, my son will be a happy camper in college.

    They fixed that in the most recent 1.1.5 firmware update. You shouldn't have any issues.
