    A lot of the time you're limited by the contact between the die and the heat spreader, so good cooling will only get you so far unless you opt to delid.

    It looks like this might be the case with mine - I have a big MO-RA 420 Pro external rad with 9X ML140 Pros & Dual D5s plus EK Monoblock. Water temps are not my issue and my 1080Ti never exceeds 40C even overclocked (2065Mhz + 12Ghz RAM). (That is now with Summer Ambients hitting 26-27C during the day)

    My 7940X however if bumped to 4.7Ghz all cores (need 1.22V) some cores hit the 100s under stress testing. So for now I have 4 Cores @ 4.7Ghz , 4 Cores @ 4.6Ghz and the rest at 4.2 GHz and stock voltage.


    I have not delided but it looks like I will have to in order to improve temps. For the moment though performance is excellent for me as it is so I might enjoy the warranty a little bit more.

    It's about as far as you can go with these. The 7900X I'm using at the moment does 4.8GHz on all cores with 1.2v (non AVX). From the several I've tested/used this seems to be top of the crop. Sadly the more cores, the less likely you'll be able to achieve this. I've since stopped overclocking the mesh, too. Core is still king, and there's very little to be gained by bumping this.

    For now I will stay undelidded to preserve my warranty and the possibility of selling the CPU if any upcoming drop-in CPU justifies something like that.

    If after a year or 2 nothing good is on the horizon I will just upgrade the whole MB/CPU/RAM combo. Meanwhile, I will keep adding funds to my Amazon balance for future upgrades use.

    Refresh due in the not too distant future, I believe.
