    As far as remember, the pink Kryonaut Extreme is made to withstand lower sub-zero temperatures but dries out at 80C+ while the regular grayish one is for higher temperatures and dries out at higher positive temperature point and is thus better for regular use. But I haven't used them in a while so I may remember it wrong.

    Alright. So both should be good and moist. Not sure where those 80°C+ dry out temperaturecame from then. Might have been something else.

    Claims are that the grey version does dry out pretty fast with concurrent 80C+, seen a few reports around that, text in the link above by Astyanax's supports those claims too.

    new behavior with this driver:

    -Display flicker on login in Windows 10 latest

    corresponds with event log entry:

    A caller specified the SDC_FORCE_MODE_ENUMERATION flag in a call to the SetDisplayConfig() API

    Why? If you have FreeSync, leave VSync OFF, unless it's some old game, which doesn't work well with VSync OFF. Otherwise you add input lag.
    Just limit FPS...

    Nope .. if you dont set vsync to force on in global (not in game) you get stutters with freesync

    fps limit or not

    I think it's still too early for the release of a new driver. This month there are not many releases

    Weird, but I didn't notice any stutterign with FreeSync without enabling global VsyncON and with VSync Off in games, even that I'm pretty sensitive to tearing/stuttering...

    Oh this is news to me. I've been using Kryonaut (Grey) with my 5800X and Noctua NH-D15, before that with my 4790K overclocked to 4.8Ghz for years. I wouldn't say the 5800X regularly goes over 80°C, but it does, especially when stress testing. Since this CPU is designed to go up to 90°C.

    So would I see better results switching to Kryo Extreme (Pink)?

    1g of Grey is ~$9 in Australia
    2g of Pink is $39 + $15 delivery (so I will wait for it to go on discount I guess). I want to buy it from Amazon with free delivery, but some of the reviews are saying they received a fake.

    I've tested on both, the pink has different properties and may actually be slightly less efficient or equal to the gray. Pink was expensive too. However, after switching to the pink, and back to gray, and pink, gray again and finally pink. Decided that the two products have very close to similar performance.

    When taking it apart and cleaning and reapplying, the pink seemed to be closer to its original state, vs the gray was a combination of hard and or oily tack in some areas, crumbly on some sections.

    Personal conclusion, the pink seems more durable over time than the gray. but initial performance (less than a week or two on each application, they seem very similar.
    The first day of performance the pink seemed about 1 degree C less efficient than the gray in the same temp environment, after a week or two they seemed about equal in performance. So for me, I stayed with the pink

    Hope that helps..

    2g of Themalright TFX is around 31 AUS, does a better job on my 5900X.

    normal behavior, have been seeing it since the 450 drivers.

    Touching on the FreeSync and vsync topic, I've recently purchased a Dell S2522hg 240hz, FreeSync/Gsync compatible monitor.
    Playing SOTTR at 1080p max settings with Gsync + Fps limit alone I get stutter in some areas of Paititi and cutscenes, same in Witcher 3.
    With Gsync + Fps limit + Vsync all is super smooth.
    But in Shadow Warrior 2 I can get away with just Gsync + Fps limit, so I guess it depends on how heavy the game is on the gpu, from what I can tell.

    Can't confirm, it's smooth for me with and without vsync with VRR and 70fps cap via driver. I don't think there should ever be additional stutter without vsync when clearly being inside VRR range all the time.

    On my Asus V248QE 144hz without vsync or fps limit, is no problem, which I'm sure if I did the same on this monitor would be no problem either.
    That's with Witcher 3.
    These "sync" techs may seem to only add latency but they can also smooth out frame times.
    With SOTTR for example, without vsync or fps limit, on the Asus I would get lag in some areas during gameplay and stutter in cutscenes, with max settings.
    Adding vsync + fps limit would help alleviate it but not completely.
    Adding Gsync into the mix, has removed it completely.
    I don't feel the age of the gpu anymore.

    I also noticed, that some games simply doesn't work good with VRR and VSync-OFF. What I remember it was with older games (games before FreeSync) so I assume, that the engine wasn't perfectly prepared for this.
    In new games it works well in most cases.
    So that's why I would never turn ON V-sync globaly with VRR, only for games which doesn't run smooth with V-Sync Off...

    I don't get where this idea comes from, but I don't get any stutter or tearing on any game with Freesync, Vsync off and RTSS fps cap within the Freesync range. Also why the hell would set vsync to "global" when you can toggle this per game profile? That exists for a reason...

    Enable both for least amount of tearing, G-Sync/FreeSync is there on top to fix the V-Sync lag issue, so both should be enabled via NVCPL and disabled in games, there have been countless articles, tests and reports that confirm just that.
    Afterward try with low latency mode or hags to reduce the input lag that isn't caused by sync.

    Stutter related to something different than G-Sync and V-Sync though, maybe the fps cap isn't set to optimal?
