Don't know about you guys, but that's why I thank the [H] haha! I also haven't overclocked since my AMD Tbird/Tbred/Palomino/A64Venice, in fact I've never OC'ed an intel machine what wasn't my own rig, I'm a mega-noob. In fact I've disabled some cores and disabled HT to control the heat on my current LGA1366 (don't judge me I'm poor). I didn't build this machine, but who the hell put one of these hot-as-hell procs in a Shuttle SFF, ugh.Kyle, thanks for de-lidding and breaking dies so we don't have to.. and then trying to justify the expense to our spouses!! Apparently your wife is MUCH more forgiving of such things than mine is!!
God I hope Ryzen is good...
That's a massive decrease in temps. I'm thinking about de-lidding my proc now. I'm not chasing OC, but I'm always chasing lower temps. German don't ever install A/C in homes/apts, so you're stuck dealing with the heat during the summer months. My system hates that, so I had to go watercooling to keep things down.
1.300v VCORE (Adaptive) highest HWiNFO64 has recorded in the past five days was 1.389 VID, but I had it set to 1.320v in the BIOS and backed off slightly by .02v VCORE in Windows. Using a Corsair H115i for cooling.
It pretty much instantly locks when I set it to 5.2Ghz at 1.35v and I don't want to bump it up much higher.
Having four sticks of DDR4-3466 installed seems to have it running hotter by ~3-8C hotter than two stick of DDR4-3000, but my room is also a bit warmer, so I don't know.
I have been really tempted to do this to my 6700K but just haven't pulled the trigger. Mainly I don't want to buy a delid block.
I really have to stop being so damn lazy!
That was a whole lot of effort for not much result.
If you can bare to watch Linus... lol, gains are very small.
I don't mind watching Linus as entertainment, he's a funny guy. But his methods are a bit questionable, which leaves the results... also a bit questionable. Plus stock fan so there's only so much improvement you can get with that. Just for giggles, I checked to see if anyone had replaced the intel tim with NT-H1, and someone over at anandtech forums did on a oc'd i7-3770k (way back in '12). They were showing results of a 20 degree delta using a Corsair H100. So I dunno whether Linus's poor results are from stock cooling, or Linus's application method, or just crap paste (I don't think he mentioned what he actually applied there), or if there's a significant difference between the stock tim used in '12 vs the current stock tim intel uses.
Man, I hope Ryzen kicks serious ass when it comes out. Screw Intel and their shitty TIM. They seriously can't spend an extra few pennies to give us something that isn't completely terrible?
While that is true, Kyle points out in another post that ambient temperature is what we should be basing this on.Maybe someone already said this and I didn't catch it -- but 91 °C is 364.150 K, and 68 °C is 341.150 K. So the decrease in temperature is ~6.7% (alternatively, the new T is about 94% of the old T), rather than the "25.28%" quoted in your writeup. This is not just a pedantic point, because the absolute temperature scale is the one which we can use to relate to the underlying physical properties of the system, like heat.

Any chance you'll test it lidless with one of those EK shims and a water block?
It would be cool (no pun intended) to see how low it can go without the heat spreader.
If my GPU with a water block is any indication, the answer is "pretty damned low".
My Pascal Titan fully overclocked can be kept below 34C at all times, if I want to turn the fans up high enough.
Using a shim would replace one IHS for another.
