Which way do you recommend to achieve this overclock? Should I use the factory Asus BIOS utility (accessed with F12 at startup) or would you rather recommend an other way, another program?
Thank you in advance.
I've got better temperatures with a vertical positioning of the case (< 90°in stress test).
@VanGoghComplex : yes, I've seen this 240mm AIO modding. Anyway, I won't have time to go on with my build during next weeks (big project to finish). Then I'll have a look at undervolting. Also if I am...
I just want to switch easily from one setup to the other on the fly according to my activities to reduce noise, heat and consumption. For instance, I want to OC for music production, but not when only editing text or browsing for instance.
Thanks Captindecisive and SixFootDuo for your answers.
One additional question: I plan to use the ASUS stock BIOS utility to overclock but I wonder if it's possible to control which profile is loaded without restarting the computer (on my older computer, a Clevo laptop, I have the ThrottleStop...
Thank you for all the answers.
In between I have tightened a bit the screws attaching the cooler to the CPU but I've been careful not to overtight in order to avoid crackling the motherboard. I have also installed the two 120mm case fans (Silent Wings 3). By the way, my IHS is...
I have recently completed my first mini-ITX build:
Fractal Design Node 202, Asus Rog Strix Gaming Z370-I, i8700K, CPU cooler Cooltek LP53 with Noctua NF-A9x14 fan, no GPU, Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz 2 x 16 GB, Samsung EVO 970 500GB M.2 SSD. The CPU has been delidded by another guy, I...
OK, it seems these gray pads are just made of thermal paste and according to this page it offers a thermal conductivity of 4 W/mK whereas the Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut offers 12.5W/mK. So I think I'll wipe out the stock paste and replace it with the Kryonaut.
This is how the back of the LP53 looks like. Actually it doesn't look like regular thermal paste. I can't see any film to remove there. Should I remove these grey pads and replace them with Konduktonaut? In this case, how do I remove them?
I am finally going to start the assembly of my computer. So I am going to set a Noctua A9x14 fan on my Cooltek LP53 CPU cooler using a printed adapter. I am not sure how to tie everything together. I have already removed the LP53 stock cooler.
Now, how do I remove the black...
I am going to install a Cooltek/Thermaltek LP53 cooler on my CPU. I have just noticed the cooler is shipped with thermal paste. Would you recommend to use this factory paste or put some third party instead? I have some Kryonaut which I bought for this purpose and if it can help lowering...
