    You guys might now more about this than I do, but I find HWInfo quite useless for fan controls because it only lets me control the CPU fan :(

    Is there something I'm missing? Only the first fan is customizable and if I set it to a manual or custom auto - the GPU fans stop, the CPU fan is the only one that reacts and my GPUs gradually heat up into the oblivion... Any ideas?

    HWINFO64 SETTINGS...
    Uncheck EC Support under "Programs -> Settings -> Safety" and THEN be sure to go to the Sensors section and disable monitoring of "DELL EC". Link to a great guide for you. http://imgur.com/a/UYC3s#0

    That worked like a charm! Didn't need the guide, was very straight-forward. Thanks!

    I wish that would work on Clevo, but it does not. But, they do have other manual fan controls that work well. I just love using HWiNFO64 for everything that I can.

    There had been much worse if Clevo as you say does not have Hwinfo fan control had been like Alienware (Offered zero fan control):rolleyes: Hwinfo64 is more than just a fan control. An ingenious software for monitoring of hardware;) Aw 17 and 18 had been ruined laptops without Hwinfo64. Dell should paid developers of Hwinfo64 a big part of its profits:D Maybe 5%:D Do not forget that Dell's engineers and reps recommended Hwinfo because Dell failed to deliver fan profiles that worked the way we wanted.

    Hurray, 9.7 tubes worth of Liquid Ultra:

    [​IMG]

    Already used the last drop of CLU on an Acer (or something :vboops: ), so this arrived none too soon. Use CLU atm, so:
    1. benchmark run with cpu fan at 100%
    2. check Tmax
    3. repaste with Galinstan
    4. benchmark run with cpu fan at 100%
    5. check Tmax
    The 'fan on full' because otherwise you'd run into fan table differences (steps). Hope to run that test this weekend.

    I am looking forward to seeing your test results. The way you purchased that in bulk is clearly the most affordable option for anyone that needs a lot of liquid metal thermal paste.


    Here's this for anyone still having doubts as to whether or not using liquid metal produces better results. I just tested Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. Results are more or less identical to Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra and Phobya Liquid Metal.

    Bear in mind that the 6700K has been delidded and has Liquid Ultra between the core and IHS. (A 6700K that has not been delidded with liquid metal paste on the die will not achieve results as good as demonstrated here.)

    As you can see in the video, a little bit goes a really long way with liquid metal thermal paste.

    Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra, Phobya Liquid Metal or Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut are all very similar contents and produce comparable results. As long as your CPU heat sink fits nice on the CPU they should work fine. If the CPU heat sink is a sloppy fit, then you'll need to use IC Diamond to plug the gap, because liquid metal pastes do not work well in that scenario.
