My experience with the Asus PRIME X370-Pro - Page 540

post #5391 of 6796
Thank you for the help here folks. Seems my 1700 is quite stable at much lower voltages and temps and now I'm working on getting the RAM stable at higher speeds again.

But I already did them after the replacement of the chewing-gum by the thermal paste, but before the cardboard deflector:

So, even without measuring their actual temperatures, I'm confident they remain cool enough to preserve the life span of every components around them.

Even by keeping these chewing-gums, lowering the heatsinks enought for them to almost touch what they are supposed to cool, while smashing the soft stuff to form a very thin layer would improve significantly the cooling efficiency.

noice. i guess 0.4mm height difference is no problem then? i only ordered 1mm thick. conductivity is 25W/m.K at worst

Yes, the PCH heatsink screws are long enough to handle this gap.

Every single modification I made on my board heatsink has voided its warranty.

But I prefer to keep a healthy board during 10 years, far beyond the warranty delay, rather than having to RMA it because some component overheated or crying if that happens after the warranty period.
The same logic goes about my M2 drive.

And Murphy will manage to make it fail 1 day after the guarantee expires.

I might wait till NVME tech becomes 2x fast/capacity of what it is now and upgrade in that moment.
The way I use my computers, a standard SSD drive of 128-256GB is all I'd ever need. I only bought the M.2 NVMe Samsung 960 EVO just because it was "new" tech I'd not had any experience with. The drive benchmarks are impressive ...... but meaningless in my use. I don't ever need to transfer large data chunks ever. My data needs are just the opposite .... constant 1KB data writes 24/7/365. I will likely never purchase another M.2 drive for the additional cost for meaningless performance.

You're correct. After watching many videos there is no difference when loading games or apps or windows boot. In many cases they remained the same.

So an NVME would really be worthless in my opinion. Better is to get a bigger SSD if I ever need it as I already have 1.75 Terabyte across 4 drives.

Money best spent elsewhere. Such this which I cannot wait to get: biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif
