Also, the instructions in the Kyronaut package say to spread. Why bother putting a how to and not mention other methods, unless Thermal Grizzly thinks it's that much better of a process. That was my logic anyways, and anecdotally it has held true. It's more of a pain in the ass to get a good spread than putting a dot or line, but imo it's worth it for every mount.
With Kryonaut peeps might want to try spreading it thinly with non-powdered surgical gloves, tighten block, run RealBench a few minutes, heat the TIM up, shut down immediately, loosen the screws on the block until you can just move it without losing contact, slide it around in every direction 30 seconds, tighten screws again, TIM on entire CPU IHS.

I did that on my 3950X except I also put a small drop of Kryonaut over each of the three chiplet areas.

Hi,
Out of the box EK acetal or nickle tops were fails even after several mounts
First render hitting 93c
Only way to keep ek blocks in the game was to alter it's mount not using the springs and using a bitspower summit mount I had that is skinny enough to get though ek narrow holes in it's mounting bracket


Tried a different timm application worked great oddly on both modified ek and non-modified foundation

Did a thin coat on both the chip and on the cold plate got acetal to foundation older results level too
Unfortunate for acetal same application of timm got foundation to sigV2 temps I'm wondering now what it's going to do for sigV2 and nickle top

I really love the foundation out of the box big winner didn't have to anything it just works thermal grizzly hydronaut is growing on me too !

Same setup as these two prior runs 4.5-4.8 blender opendata full long test manual 1.25v

Aside from watercooling gear they make medical equipment. I’m pretty sure they make components for ventilators. My guess that’s their number 1 priority right now as it should be. I doubt people that have pre orders wanna hear that but hopefully people can understand and wait a bit longer.

yeah they said something about the factories they get their fittings made in being converted to making vent fittings.

they did not state anything getting in the way of block milling though. they said AMD blocks are churning as we speak, then supposedly GPUs.

it'll be nice to quietly game into the apocalypse.

Add me on Steam, same name
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

This was their last substantive update:

For Threadripper, the first blocks that will ship will be copper with either clear acrylic or black acetal tops. And either black or silver frames. If you preordered, you can change your order if you want all black or to get the block faster (if you ordered nicke0L.

Shipping is weird because of the covid chaos. So things aren't exactly normal. But when were they ever?

Also, in case you heard that Chicago businesses that aren't essential are shut down. Good news, our office is still open because parts for ventilators and hospital bed hydraulics are made at our facility. Some of our fittings will be delayed because of it (anything round, really).

EU distribution and the like is all on hold until life gets a little more sane again.

But we'll be working to get blocks out the door as long as people are still feeling well!
Made at their facility - not sure if that means they make them or share equipment or space with others, but it sounded like they were still working on the blocks and hoping they might ship the TR's last week - that didn't happen but maybe not too much longer, for the non-plated, non-anodized versions anyway.

shared equipment.

you say "I need 100 of these made!" and the business that ACTUALLY makes them says "cool story, but COVID, so we're only making Government grade fittings"

Yes, they did say there was a conflict with round fittings specifically, and the third-party plating and anodizing. The possibly good news for those waiting on TR blocks is that Optimus doesn't need to make any round fittings to wrap those up and ship them out.

That was their very last update, so hopefully - they seem to say anyway - that manufacturing isn't the hold up at this point, aside from plating and anodizing.
