    That is what i figured and that is enough apparently not to make full contact with the cooling plate, especially if the cpu's IHS is even slightly convex. That is why I really like that copper IHS...

    If this little $25-45 dollar item fixes the gap issue with the monoblock because it is raise slightly or thicker, it is worth its weight in gold. Sadly I don't have a delidder as mine was done by...

    Now that is actually quite stunning. Having it be a little taller to offset the lack of adhesive is a stroke of genius. No more need of lapping and this would solve the issues with the monoblock by...

    Ah yes that is right you can do it but you won't do it through the CPU lanes, but it will be limited in bandwidth if I remember correctly, like in the Z170 and z270 iterations.
