Hello

I usually use MX-4 Arctic or GD900 thermal paste not only for Kronos, but for any electronic hardware.

Okay, I must confess that I had to Google thermal paste. Is this something else that every Kronos owner needs to worry about?

Not at all. I kept several computers for more than a decade and none of them ever overheated. The only PC which needed CPU heatsink paste maintenance is my current one because I use it extensively for video rendering, which implies a lot of CPU (thus creating lots of heat) and after 10 years I noted it was time for some new heatsink paste. In comparison, the Kronos will never reach such temperatures, unless you constantly play it outside under equatorial sunny weather. Cool

Awesome, that’s what we needed to hear. Thanks 😊
