I found that scraping off the old glue residue with your fingernail is the easiest method as well.
It's fine. I spread that drop over the IHS and die. Temps are fantastic.

Wow did'nt know there was a tech geek subforum here!


Just upgraded from a 6700k to a 9700k. Managed to get it to 5.0Ghz stable at 1.34V. Been flawless running max settings at 3440x140 at 120Hz. Battlefield 5 runs absolutely sublime!

Welcome. We have some hardcore gamers on here. Nice setup. What RTX card are you running? How do you like it?
I'm on the fence right now upgrading from my 1080 to the 2080.

I've gone through multiple iterations, but here are the last 2 setups I've done.

ASUS ROG 21:9 3440x1440 100Hz monitor
NZXT Manta ITX
Intel I5-7600K
GTX 1080Ti FE
NZXT AIO
Samsung SATA SSD
16 GB Corsair DDR4 2400 MHz
EVGA 800W PSU
PS4 Glacier White (recently upgraded to white PS4 Pro)

I initially went crazy with the desk/armchair/RGB thing, but then I needed the bedroom to actually be used as a bedroom so I moved to a wallmounted setup with a power recliner in a little nook in the house and wireless peripherals. Have not looked back - it's so comfortable.

I'm on the MSI RTX 2080 Ti Bro. Really love it and with the new Nvidia OC scanner I get up to 2055Mhz Core / 7500Mhz consistently in games. Runs less than 58 degrees with my custom fan curve.1080 to 2080 will be great so long as you don't game at 4k. I'm gaming at 3440x1440 @ 120Hz and I get over 100fps easily. Disabled DLSS and Raytracing as I think it's not implemented properly and I hate the frame inconsistencies.

I've used MSI for the longest time for GPUs I think they are great! Asus in my country is a rip off so MSI was the next best choice.

Great pickup. Looks great!
Good thing about MSI is that they give you 2 generations of upgrades. I'm going to be using my last upgrade from 1080 to the 2080 on my dominator. The MSI afterburner overclocking is not bad also.

Yea i was really torn between Asus and MSI but after seeing both in person I went with MSI. I use wired ethernet at work and the MSI had an ethernet port vs the ASUS not having it so that helped the decision.

Now I can move my desktop on my Sim Rig to a desk and just set the laptop there when I do sim racing which is another added bonus.

Just found this thread and am at work without access to any images. I have a few setups that are worthy. I haven't upgraded components in a minute but have four different builds. All have Asus Rampage Motherboards, three have two Titan X Pascals and the 4th still has 4x 980Ti. I will have to replace those 980Tis with whatever the next RTX Titan is. Still doing fine with my 6950X and 5960X x3.
