Mine as shipped without springs worked great. First springless Mount was just taking the springs out. No grinding, cutting reconfiguring necessary and I’m fairly certain my temps are a bit better than Thrashes. Mine is the full nickel version. 10-12C spread with AVX workloads 14 cores at 4.8GHz 1.225 Vcore and no AVX offset. Max 80C after multiple 30 minute runs with 24C ambient.

My 3950x at 1.25v, VDDGs at .950v, VDDP at .900v, memory at 1.45v, with my AMD Foundation while looping Cinibench my temps hover around 60C in HWInfo.

I used the spread method with a drop of thermal paste on each of the three chiplet areas, then heated up the block and CPU with Cinebench, shut down immediately.

Then I loosened the block screws without losing contact, moved the block around slightly to respread the Grizzly Kryonaut, tightened the screws enough I never bowed the board. Have those temps.

Yeah that’s my favorite method with Kryonaut. Run it hot, loosen screws just enough to move the block ever so slightly, re torque mounts and let her rip. You should note that In 24-48 hours temps will get even better as it sets and cures. Good stuff. One step down from LM.

Maybe I've been "spreading" paste wrong my entire life but having a new mobo out of the case, using the Noctua goop with a credit card, I got an even layer in no time. I couldn't do this with Kryonaut however I was trying that with the mobo in case vertical with their flappy spatula and a bunch of stuff in the way. Was pasting it like a hole in drywall since I couldn't get it to just spread. Used a pea drop of NT-H1 like I usually do and did the spread... has a better consistency for spreading and now my cores seem to be a lot closer in temps. Gues I am pleased with that since when I used to do the spread for workstations and servers back in the old days it was not fun. Still running more stressing on this Encore, but I can now drop my 49 down to 1.290 which was 1.30. Did a few runs at 50 1.32 with cinebench but crashed eventually. Realbench @ 1.335 wasnt happy either. Fine with 49 1.29. This sig V2 is a delight.



Also, this is what I guess was in my loop after a couple months of running the V2. Seems more like tarnish than gunk when I was toothbrushing it, no actual blockage. Running detergent as we speak, primochill reboot since I'm lazy and need this back up in the morning.

Before I added the three drops on top of my chiplet areas on my 3950X, I used a surgical glove with no powder on it and spread the Kryonaut thinly over the entire CPU.

Hi,
SigV2 doesn't get any sun light or light at all seeing it has no plexi so yeah you need to get some real fluid man no reason for that to happen enclosed.
Only other way it might happen that fast is if there is air pocket from sitting for a while copper wet/ dry tarnish.

Hi,

Yup, that was exactly my point. Let's even call them equal performance. You would have to be one hard up EK fan boy to buy a Magnitude over a Foundation. And when they start crying "oh! the restriction!"....well, you could buy a Foundation AND another D5 or DDC and still be at a significant savings over buying a Magnitude....heck, you may even be able to buy two more pumps if you find a deal. ::insert the ROTFLMAO emoji here::

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

theres not...... i will expend all this money on this machine and it will do all the job for me type of deal..

cheapo way to do that with same effects boil your copper piece on water with vinegar you will end with similar results but faster and way cheaper...

you still need some elbow grease to polish the copper.
i do not recommend using mothers inside where the fin area is... if you dont know how to get the residue off that the mother cream leave without reverting to boiling it again lol "red looking copper piece again"... but it will clean it spotless and shiny copper like it aint nothing lol

as you dont want that residue mothers cream leave inside your loop.. alot of bare cleaning with alcohol/water after to remove the protective layer and residues from the fins..
thats why i prefer copper easiest metal to clean in this circunstances... now nickel... well dont use mothers IN ANY PLATED metal surfaces.. XD
also, if the nickel is bad ((cough EK cough)) when you using cleaning methods like toothpaste and brush etc you are eating away the plating little by little and all it takes is a little "microscopic" / "imperfection" entrance to the bare copper/brass and it will mess it up just like that eventually..

you can also clean the stuff with electrolysis but now thats more complicated ""maybe dangerous process"" lol
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUVdIKNX2P8


now if you really love your block that much you can plate this yourself.. this is a summary on howto..
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-PtnwtOR24

you can also remove the plating if is messed up XD
