    GX501 and Liquid Metal inquiry

    Hi guys! I'm not sure if this inquiry had been posted already but I am planning to do a repaste on my gx501. I'm thinking of using the thermal grizzly conductonaut liquid metal but before I actually do it, I need to know the type of metal used on the gx501's heatsink because based on what I have searched, thermal grizzly's liquid metal and aluminium don't get along very well.
    Any thougjhts?
    Thank you in advance.

    The IHS is made of nickel *Plated copper, can be found in the data sheets if you want to double check but should be fine for LM.

    Thanks for the info! I'll check it out. Hopefully this would fix my 99°c heat problem with the cpu.

    Will do! I already undervolted the cpu, but still have heating issues. Hopefully liquid metal will be my answer.

    How do you undervolt? Which version of xtu you use? Because the XTU have only few options avaiable.

    Im using latest bios btw.

    Thanks, its working. I'm using wrong version of XTU previously. Does anyone manage to alter XMP profile in XTU? No such options available in XTU...

    I've applied LM to my GX501 and it helped getting it out of the throttle zone. Before, the CPU would hit about 96c (that includes an undervolt). Now my CPU temp hits max 84-86c with LM and undervolt.
