    I have just moved to this monoblock on my delidded 7900x and my temps are worse vs my old block, i see uneven temps a lot more now, I'm thinking of moving to this monoblock made by Barrow https://www.aliexpress.com/item/BARR...870559294.html .

    That’s actually a nice looking block with a square surface instead of round. Yes I noted uneven core temp spread even on my 7900X and didn’t think much of it until a little research showed the hotter cores in the corners. Round might be OK for direct die but the way the EK block is made it wouldn’t work. I’m not so sure it was all that it could be on a delid either as there is no tolerance at all on height. I had issues with a monoblock with my M8E build and figured that was a fluke with it running a delidded 6700K. Changed to the EK evo block and all was golden. These blocks can’t be floated with springs because of the VRM aspect of it.*

    End result....They look great.....the story ends there. They did manage to take my money more than once though so joke is on me!*

    I think before I change to a new block i mite go with a thermal pad rather than paste, from what i can tell Innovation Cooling LLC IC Graphite Thermal Pad 40X40 mm are great and never need to be changed and can be reused, if there any problem with the paste with a delidd this should fix the issue and for this block it mite work better than paste.

    I haven't seen a ton of feedback about the temperature differences between delidded monoblocks and delidded CPU only blocks, though I've heard about people having poor contact with monoblocks once delidded. It's something I'd love to be able to make a report on to provide the team with.
    The Rampage VIE monoblock is really nice to look at and in my case has worked great for the last 8 months on a non-delidded i9-7940X. However, I am going with direct die cooling now so this cannot possibly be made to work without the IHS.

    Yet, even when delding it is going to be a hit and miss and contact will depend on the any height differences of the IHS (before/after delid) because of resealing or not and the amount of silicon applied. However, the whole point of delidding is to reduce the thickness of the thermal interface material (paste vs LM) in order to increase thermal performance. And as such, if the IHS is lowered beyond a certain point there is no way to achieve perfect contact with the IHS - AND - THE VRMS!
    We have an angle here, small or big, that will exist no matter what vs going with a dedicated CPU block that can be spring loaded.

    So I have ordered 2X EK Velocity blocks to use in two PCs and the second was because I wanted the D-RGB version that came 20 days after I bought the first. It would be great for your customers to offer the D-RGB frame as a standalone upgrade instead of having to buy a new block to get the addressable leds. I got a second one because I need two but otherwise I did not really like the fact that I can't buy the LEDs separately. We are in the custom watercooling community and these things should be given..

    I would like to attempt to illuminate the Watercool VRM block with the addressable RGB strip from the monoblock but I can't quite see how much space is there on either side of the VRM block once installed. Not until I disassemble the monoblock which will happen once I receive my direct frame.

    Do you have an image from the top with the VRM + CPU blocks that could possibly clarify this? I thought of working on it now so that is ready when it's time to install it but I don't know if it will fit then..

    Ill rather try a Graphite pad before seeing the pads thinker it will be interesting to see how it performs.

    It won't perform better than Liquid Metal with direct die cooling and since I decided to delid I will go for max performance no questions asked. I.e. no IHS and LM.

    Now if I was going to leave the IHS on maybe the pad could help in correcting the "angle" with the monoblock but I am not the one to try it since I already bought the parts for direct die cooling.......I just need the frame to be delivered!

    I dunno. I noticed a huge improvement after delid. Variance is minimal. Same board and monoblock 7980xe. The contact area is definitely large enough. Contact seems good. I know you are set on your decision, but lapping the ihs might solve these issues. I can push my overclock to 4.8 without any throttling. Temps no more than 85c. But I stick with 4.6 at 73c max. I have yet to lap the ihs, but in about a year I'll re apply LM and try lapping. VRMs are fine too.

    What voltages are you running though? I saw a 10c jump moving to the monoblock from a normal evo block my CPU is delidded i could run 4.7 on 1.22 with load temps around 78c.

    I run 4.6 at 1.17 and 4.8 at 1.23. I prefer to stay below 1.2 so I backed it down. I dunno. I really don't have any problems
