Windows has nothing to do with the BIOS. The profiles will still be saved in the BIOS after you reinstall Windows.

If you're unsure if your memory OC, FCLK, and everything is absolutely 100% stable, then yes, loading optimized defaults isn't a bad idea.

Both. The block itself is pretty porous, so I used same size cut thermal pad (GELID GP-EXTREME 1.0mm), which I had laying around, with a very small smear of Kryonaut on the block side, very thin, just to fill in any minute anomalies. 12c cooler in my case.

It's worth doing, as the original pad, although it had the indent of the chipset die, it was clean and brittle, aka, the die was shining as new when removed.

What saved bios profiles. If you are talking about the saved profiles in the bios itself afaik they are saved in the bios so should be still there. Yes you will need to redownload and install the chipset drivers.

To be fair almost everyone posted before and after stats; you can expect at least 5-10c lower degrees in chipset temperature.
Some had improvements up to 15-20c; depends on how bad was the original pad before replacement.
I used thermal paste, Grizzly Kryonaut, and got 8-10c improvement.

Any fan/pump header on the GIGABYTE X570 AORUS MASTER that provides 3 amps? I have a Koolance PMP-500 pump that requires a 3 amp power source. I don't want to connect it directly to the PSU because it's too damn loud, and I'll need to control its speed though the UEFI.
They only provide 24W 2A headers at best. So 3 amps is a NO.
