    Not convinced that the gains for a 24/7 rig temp wise are worth the risk to delid. They soldiered the IHS this time around and that should help with thermal delivery.

    there is not much risk involved, warranty goes out the window though. it might seem like hardware brutality when you rip the ihs off but the cpu can handle it. and for the temps, i am at 90 degrees with 5.2ghz and it is not stable, if i can get it down to 70 degrees with a delid and get it stable, it is very worth it for me.



    K Cpus are for overclockers and enthusiasts of course it will be worth it to get those last 100-200 MHz and get the temps down at the same time.

    the 9th gen is soldered and it does help, the i5, i7 and i9 all have the same die and it is twice as thick as the 8th gen and it is bigger also, it is a 8 core die even for the i5 with 2 cores disabled. and the thermal properties of silicon makes it harder for the heat to transfer for 9th gen compared to 8th gen. ergo they had to solder it or it would melt.. i think the 8600k will eat the 9600k up if delided.

    Yeah I hear you kalle - re the value of delidding for that extra bit of headroom done a bit of benching and overclocking in my time.

    For everyday users not sure it is of value. But you are spot on the K series are enthusiast items and OCing is what they are all about.

    If you go ahead I hope you get those 20'C extra that you are hoping form.

    I haven't delidded mine, i am at 4.9ghz on all cores with 1.36v-1.37v and max temps are 80C-83C with realbench. while gaming it stays around 60C. Anything over4.9 ghz, doesn't matter what voltage, it is just not stable.

    Do you mean the VRM switching frequency? It is on Auto, what should i try it on?

    Ps. i got my ram stabel so far at 3466mhz@ 16-18-36 @1.35V

    Bronson, Switching frequenc, maybe 350 khz, that's what I run right now, it might help get some unstable overclock stable at lower voltage but I think a delid would benefit us all who are on coffe lake 8. my motherboard goes up to 500khz, efficiency goes out the window that high, but it will give a flatter voltage curve. you can always test different settings too see what your setup likes.

    no for everyday users I wouldn't recommend voiding your warranty like that =)

    I hope so too, but I don't know if I wanna use liquid metal or good paste yet. pros and cons I suppose....

    Liquid metal is very good. One of the interesting things about the new CPU is the thickness, I watch Roman grind down the CPU on a video. He found that by reducing the overall thickness he was able to 'score' an extra 15 or so degree's.

    Again if you extreme benching or want it for serious bragging rights I still am not sure it is worth it. LOL

    Hi, Thanks for the help. i tried 350hz and 500hz and also tried different and higher voltages, it goes halfway trough realbench before finally crashing at 1.43V.
    I also think deledding is not realy worth it, unless you have some spare money

    Bronson - let temps be your guide my friend.

    Might just be your CPU is at the edge of what it can do with your current cooling. So pull it back a touch and lets work on the stability side of things.

    HiVizMan - my temps are fine, as i said: around/below 60C while gaming, and 80C while at 100%load. My CPU is stabel @4.9ghz. I have a perfect overclock.
