AS5 is electrically conductive as well, so I don't understand why it's still in such high demand vs. newer and better performing non-conductive TIMs that also don't require any curing.

The good news is that we've got a firmware under test right now that should help you guys out. The bad news is that we've got guys working over the weekend doing qualifications to make sure it's good and doesn't break anything else.

So when we release the update and you apply it, please forgive us for not having it fixed at launch, and next time you're in the pub having a beer, toast a certain engineer locked in a lonely lab in Fremont, California, surrounded by whirring fans and test systems. Sacrificing his weekend to fix our problems, I owe this guy a beer or six.

Well in my case, I'm not a big expert on TIM's and just always used what came with the cooler. I wanted to get some "high end"paste when I bought my H100 and just did a quick Google search. There aren't many reviews in thermal paste but the few I found always had AS5 at or near the top.

Maybe that's why its still in demand. Most don't know there is better out there and all the available reviews are a little dated.

Nice, thanks for the update. A beer or six, while enjoying some comp time? I'm in an engineering role myself and can sympathise with this engineer's position. I hope this engineer has the chance to take plenty of breaks.

I think he's the kind of guy that doesn't take a whole lot of time away from work, even when he's technically away from work.

Shut it down and tried it again. Tried the spread method the first time and tried the rice size method this time and reseated. 62-63. Re-applied and re-seated TWO MORE TIMES (and everytime I pulled the cooler off the CPU, it was spread almost perfectly) and still getting 63C. So now Im down to 4.5 and getting 62C which is still 1C over redline but Im not going any further down.
So yeah, for future reference, leave the pre-applied TIM on your H100's at least if youve got an AMD chip.

It seems like a lot of FX procs are out there have a wall they hit. I could do 4.4 on stock voltage with a Hyper 212. It takes 1.46 to get 4.6 stable and the heat increases a LOT over 1.425 it seems. Im not done tinkering since I just bought this H100 Im just starting really. Ill get in there and mess with some other settings and maybe play around with the RAM timings and see if I cant get stable overclocks with less voltage.
