Please advise on screw adjustment of Kryos Next Vario with Vision

Friday, October 26th 2018, 8:51pm

I am using the cold plate with an i9-7980XE CPU that is in a der8auer Direct Die Frame (silicon chip directly against the Kryos with a thin layer of Conductanaut liquid metal to join them). I read the instructions and understand that the four screws (two on top and one on each side) should be rotated in quarter turn increments while examining the resulting temperatures, but I am seeing absolutely no effect from maximally adjusting each individual adjustment screw even after allowing some time (i.e., several minutes) for temperatures to stabilize. I am using Prime95 SmallFFt (non-AVX) for testing an overclock/overvolt and temperatures are in the high 70s to lower 80s C.

What I find extremely confusing is the lack of a picture and/or instructions on which screw affects which side and how the direction of turn (clockwise, counter-clockwise) affects that side with regard to lowering or raising it.

At the bottom of this post is an image taken from your YouTube video presentation of this cold plate in which I have labeled the four adjustment screws with the numbers "1, 2, 3, and 4" and the four sides with the letters "A, B, C, and D."

Now, I would like to get an answer to two questions:
  1. Which screws (labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4 in lime-green) control which sides (labeled A, B, C, and D in orange)?
  2. Does clockwise rotation of the screw cause its corresponding side of the bottom plate to go higher or lower?

Thank you for your customer support
