Then it is interesting with the Arctic Thermal Pad, if you can save 5-10 degrees, then I think it's worth the cost.
No, replacing the thermal pads will not help you.
the maximum that you reach is at full load the PCH temperature will be 75-80 degrees, i.e. almost CPU temperature.
which is logical, because the radiator is common to all.
Why do I advise changing thermal pads andwhy did I change them myself
In this case, the body is slightly crooked, the radiator may be curved, and not everyone has stock gaskets fit properly. stock, as I understand it, 1mm. Need to take 1.5mm and 1mm I try on :)
From normal pads, which are found everywhere, which will not dry out and which are of any thickness - I only know Arctic Thermal Pad.
If you have a native thermal pad glued with a left Chinese hoof on a radiator curve - then welcome to the PCH temperature protection trigger and all sorts of glitches under load due to, in fact, the absence of mechanical contact of the gasket with the chip. Look, on half of the pictures on the PCH strip there is no chip print :)
I repeat once again, it depends on the instance. YMMV.
Here is a photo with my case:Post has been editedshadowcaster - 17.06.19, 21:43
