    There is even colder though.
    It envolves using sodium heated to 700° kelvin to separate the sodium atoms, a few lasers to slow the down a stream of these atoms, then a magnetic field shahped like a cup.
    It cools to the point of 177 Nano kelvin(close to -273.16°C) creating something called Bose-Einstein Condensate, the coldest place/substance in the universe.

    How is this related to Computer Hardware? Would you want to cool your CPU or GPU down to -273° Kelvin? If you did, would your GPU even still exist, much less run a benchmark? Could you even afford to build one of these contraptions?

    The concept would be worth a try.
    The only problem would be you need to boot before kicking on the cooling, and making sure you don't freeze the silicon to the point where it stops functioning(cold bug).
    But actually it was something I found, that is much colder than LN2 or phase cooling, and thought it was ('scuse the pun) "cool"(and has possibilities for extreme overclocking).

    1. This is AMI BIOS release
    2. This BIOS fixes the following problem of the previous version:
    -  Improved NVME device compatibility.

    Wish me luck, time to play BIOS RouletteClick image for larger version.

    Now to go back in and setup the system and OC to it's settings from before.
    Lot's to do guys.

    By the way, @Dude, this time MFlash worked, the last update fixed it
    Remember, last time, I needed to use MSHQ USB Bootable Tool and BIOS Helper?

    BIOS setup went fast this time around.

    Last update(A.D) I could not apply the OC/BIOS profile settings from the prior BIOS.
    I tried it right away this time, and it set EVERYTHING up as it was before for A.D!
    I just need to double check, then reboot to reactivate the TPM in tpm.msc, went back into BIOS, deleted the old profile, and resaved with this BIOS version(A.E).

    Way to go MSI, your making our BIOS updates less painful(and with an M.2 drive, much faster)Click image for larger version.

    Now if they would only give me LLC, but I guess that probably requires sensors my mainboard doesn't have.
