    The P775DMx runs a little hot no matter how good the application is. Still worth a shot if you have paste to spare.

    Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra.

    I think I misunderstood, that you used Liquid ultra on top of the IHS. And the gap was between the IHS and heatsink.
    From the looks of the images , feels like the contact is pretty decent . Might actually be a defective heatsink. But the only way to confirm that is to try a replacement .

    Reached out to Xotic and they re-directed me to Sager. Email sent off to them. @Meaker@Sager can you advise?

    If you start the machine up are all the heatpipes getting hot equally fast?

    Dont think Foxconn is still doing the heatsinks for them. I remember seeing another name on the DM3 heat sinks.
