    NUC7i7BNH - Liquid Metal Thermal Compound

    Erez

      Hi,

       

      My NUC7i7BNH is getting quite hot and noisy. I’m considering replacing the stock thermal compound on the CPU. Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut (a liquid metal thermal compound) had about a -20C impact on my main i7-7700K based PC, so I am thinking of using it on the NUC’s i7-7567U. For those who are unaware, liquid metal should never be applied to aluminum heatsinks. Copper and nickel plated heatsinks are safe.

       

      - Is there any aluminum in the NUC7i7BNH heatsink?

      - Has anyone tried using a liquid metal thermal compound on the NUC’s CPU? Did it help reduce the temperature?
