I was using IC7, so maybe IC24 it isn't a big improvement over it? Should I "bake" the TIM? maybe run OCCT for a few hours or something?
I haven't received mine yet but was wondering as well. Maybe you have to heat cycle the 'puter like with AS5? You know, cold boot, heat it up nice and toasty(Intel Burn test or similar), let it idle til temps drop again, shut down and let the system cool to ambient. Rinse and repeat a few times.
Not sure if this stuff requires the same sort of burn-in, but it sure helps set AS5 a hell of a lot quicker(~five heat cycles versus up to a month of regular computing)
