    Btw unticking BD Prochot doesn't solve this issue. It seems like the signal can't be blocked on my system. Tried it many times.

    PCH temp would increase if the tests could be executed as explained.

    I tried running this benchmark on HDD, everythings fine and the PCH temp is still stable.

    Old spinning HDD’s doesn’t push rest of the hardware. The PCH chips works more like a Hub for the hardware.

    IN a small chassis, a heatsink can also act like an insulator if it blocks all airflow. It also depends on your ambient temps.

    Hi I've ordered the same type as yours from farnell. Should be arrving in 2 days. Got some questions here, does the side with adhesive material faces down when applying it on heat pipes? Should I put any thermal paste in between? I am not worring about electric conductivity as I got plenty of conformal coating unused.

    The PGS sheet has adhesive bottom side (the 150 C) protected by plastic sheet. You need to cut 4-5 same stripes as per my pictures, remove the protective plastic and stack the stripes on top of each other. Leave the protective plastic on, on the bottom stripe.

    Remove heat sink, and stick the already stacked stripe to the middle part at the bottom of heat-sink which is facing motherboard (pipes should have no black coating there, BUT CLEAN IT GOOD, as this part sucks heat most). Then continue around the top and continue direction to PCH. On the part of tape between HS and PCH you should leave the protective plastic on.

    There is no need for thermal paste, nor thermal pad. The best results I had sticking the end of tape straight to PCH.

    Let me know if anything else ...

    I can not take full credit for this. I followed example of these PGS explorers: @shadowyani and @LM64792
