    Also wanted to order one of these HS, but didn't, since I read distorted experiences of users, sm say super, sm say bad.

    Have one of these "turbo" fans in my r4, HW info with EC reading off and fans set to "maxed" give me 6-7° on CPU and 3-4° on GPU (stock fan) vs auto fan control, when gaming.

    Yeah. Everything you stated is exactly kn point with my heatsinks that I bought from him. With lm, it seems that the hs doesn't even touch the CPU. However. I was able to stop vr throttling and even get 4.3 on all cores without throttling on stock CPU with pads on vrms. Now, That being said, it gets into 90s lol. so I have to get a better fan.

    I can test the dptf thing you are talking about. If you PM me, I'm much easier to reach on discord. (I have 4930mx and a14+ bios)

    Could you be more specific, I couldn't understand, so this turbo fan shaves off 6-7C on CPU temps vs the M17x R4 stock CPU fan ? About GPU vs Auto fan I didn't get that too, thanks.

    Damn shame that this HS fitment is hit or miss, so far only saw @TheReciever and @EepoSaurus got the proper fit.
    And regarding the BIOS I do not have the unlocked BIOS flashed onto my machine but this is the post which explains that a bit and needs this driver.
