Z790 Hero Contact Frame 13900k

I am wanting to add a contact frame to my ASUS Z790 Hero. I am wanting to know if anyone has any suggestions on which frame will fit or if any of them do. I was watching Linus tech YouTube video with Jake PC adding one to the z790 hero. I just want to make sure because I have seen some posts some motherboards need longer screws.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.*

Hi I purchased the Thermaltake one for my Z790 Extreme (any for 12th/13th gen will work).

Hello,

Currently using the Thermal Grizzly frame on the Z790 APEX with good results. 4 to 5 degree drop across all p cores.

Hi, do you needed longer screws to fit the TG frame? If yes, what kind of screws?
Thank you:)

No, the TG contact frame uses the Intel socket latch screws. Make sure to apply the correct amount of torque when installing, which is between 0.03 to 0.06Nm. Using more torque than is needed can result inproper contact, ranging from no POST to instability issues.

Hi-

 

I added the thermal grizzly to my strix z790-f, and am seeing really nice, low, thermals. I was worried about the screws too after seeing some reviews, but they sent longer screws in the package with the contact frame. I take it they started doing this after some complaints...?
