Default Hydro X Series XC7 XC9 improved temperatures

So i decided to clean my Hydro X Series XC7 CPU block, in doing so i increased my cooling temperatures

I cleaned off the pre applied paste and switched to

Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut 12.5 W / m · K 1 g thermal grease (-200 to 350 ° C)

After undoing the block and resting my temps dropped around 8c on average (5-10c total)

Im running a Ryzen 3900X as my CPU

Normal operational temps at idle was around 35-45cm, im now seeing 25-35c

You need a T6 Screwdriver to undo the screws, took me all of about 5mins todo this, i applied quite a decent amount of new paste. Large pea with some small peas around the gaps
