Ahh yes. Guess I should've mentioned I am using the contact frame from TR. I never even tried the stock mount from Intel. lol oops. I'm just used to having to fix problems that exist before you even remove parts from boxes. Certainly not a perfect world.
Only other thing I should mention: After I remounted the cpu using some articsilver paste, it did throttle a bit after tho it was much better. However, the next day I guess the paste had 'settled' or whatever because it didn't throttle anymore. I ran cinebench without any throttling, so I flipped on A.I.OC and hit over 40,000 in cinebench with no throttle and no insane heat coming out of the top of my case. Seriously, it was nuts. I don't know how things didn't melt. lol.
Now if I can just get L-connect to stop randomly crashing windows, I'd be much happier.

Iâ€™d recommend using the thermal Grizzly frame first and report back.*

Caution with this, the thermal grizzly contact frame did NOT work with my z790 Hero MOBO, it just does not fit correctly. I don't know if it is something that happens with every z790 board or just some ASUS boards.

Hi, can you describe what to specifically lookout for? I got a contact frame coming tomorrow and rather not screw up the mobo socket.

I tried using the grizzly one and it is not tall enough to reach the base of the mobo, it floats over it when put over the CPU mount platform (dunno how to call it :P). I've read the thermalright can work well enough, but I could not be able to fit the grizzly one, had to return it.
