"when mounted correctly"... hmmmm I read that they upgraded their mounting screw with spring so you can keep turning without risk of bending the cpu casing

This heatsink is a giant. It probably does very well as a passive heatsink as well. wonder how it compares with the fuma

how do you change the mounting pressure? on the noctua I currently use the pressure is set by turning a knob and stopping when the knob clicks so there is no leeway.

The satas don't seem to slow boot time, I think moving the boot partition to the m.2 did it, also the asrock bios seems particularly good, unless it's windows 10 that registers the satas in a non blocking way.

I added more photos of the interior, including some weird angles that show the velcro work. I didn't hot glue, the backing cures and breaks off? If I hear something rattle I'll know what it is. The velcro is glued to the rubber insulator - definitely not travel ready.

By the way, what's a more silent and better fan than the noctua? I'm having the cpu one replaced, and the 14" isn't spooling up until 80% power is applied!

I tried both. Zero difference in normal use. I think the pro is for servers with loads of concurrent access and zero rest.

It was in-stock and shipped on time and it arrives tomorrow. That has been my experience with Walmart, unlike the other vendors who spam you with emails after emails, stuff just arrives.

Puget is very comprehensive, do they mease frame drop during scrubbing though. I think TR would be good if you'd raid together NVMe on the motherboard. Then you get 5+ GB/s and I'm sure any lag disappears :)

remove the cooler and look at the spreading of your thermal paste, it might not be well spread or maybe spread too thick. When you re-apply it, use good one like Kryonaut and don't put too much, there are many youtubes on how to do it well.

Tests have shown that TR is terrible for editing because of hiccups and framedrops during playback, it is very good for rendering but as you said those account for a minor time expense. A 7700k or, if you can wait, a 8700k will provides a smoother interaction.

Saying adjust the fan curve on a cooler that cannot be controlled by the mother board is a bit silly.
