I got my DDM2 Delidtool much earlier then expected ^^
Here's my Data:
Intel i7-7700k tray
Be QuietQ AIO Silent Loop 280
Asus Maximus XI Hero
2x8GB Corsair Vengeance 3200Mhz (using XMP)
Asus STRIX GTX 1080TI
1xM.2, 1xSSD, 1xHDD
A DVD-Rom Drive!!!
660W Seasonic-X Gold (discontinued)
OCN name: theGucky
On-die TIM: Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut
IHS TIM: Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut
Mhz gained: potentionally 500Mhz
OC after delid: 4,5Ghz/5Ghz
Temp drops: For 4,5Ghz 10-15°C/ For 5Ghz 25-30°C
CPU-Z validation of max OC: https://valid.x86.fr/r1b01s
Used CinebenchR15 and Prime 95 v28.10 to test.
The reason I gave 2 Numbers is simple, I don't want to OC my CPU, but I wanted to know if I can do 5Ghz.
Also im a noob when it comes to OC, I've tried some things. Like changing Vcore.
Vcore 1.35@5Ghz Cinebench R15 did run, but Prime95 crashed the PC.
Vcore upto 1.4@5Ghz Cinebench R15 no Problem, but Prime95 did crash the PC (with 1.385V at 30min the latest).
Vcore 1.4@5Ghz seems Stable so far.
Vcore at Auto is around 1.412V.
Tested with CinebenchR15:
@4,5Ghz 993 Points | Temp before delid: 62°C / After delid 51°C
@5Ghz 1103 Points | Temp before delid: 90°C / After delid 61°C
Prime95 Temps (without more then 30min running, Temp increases a bit when running longer (AIO cooling))
@4,5Ghz Before delid: 65-70°C After delid: 52-56°C
@5Ghz Before delid: 92-95°C (aborted after less then 5min due to high Temp) After Delid: 62-65°C
Deactivated AVX2 for Prime95...leaving it activated @5Ghz crashes 3 threads (they stay idle), while the other 5 are runing @100%.
Fact is that my 5Ghz Temps are now my predelid 4.5Ghz Temps XD
Also the more Heat my CPU produces/the quicker my CPU is, the more it benefits from the LiquidMetal see the Temp drop at top.
I tested my 1.35V@5Ghz with playing Battlefield 1 on Ultra 1080p 60fps, while looking Vids on my second Monitor. CPU was at 56/7°C. And it didnt crash, while it does crash with Prime 95 (BSOD) XD.
Tested 1.25V@Stock 4.5Ghz (CPU is sucking 1.25V but setting is at 1.2V) BF1 at Ultra WITH 4k downsample to 1080p at 60fps.
Temp at 50-52°C sucking about 55W...kind of awesome...
Here are the Pictures from Beginning to End: (sry for the bad angle used my iPod and a Desklamp for Light XD)
First what i used:
No Tape or anything to cover was used.
Used a lot of Q-tips for cleaning with Isopropyl-Alcohol 99.9% (not on Picture) better save then sry.
Here is what the CPU looks like with the centering aid on it....it fits the IHS inside.
Opened CPU...it seems like there were air bubbles in the TIM, could be from the delidding...
CPU AND IHS with Liquid Metal and Silicon
(Silicon was hard to apply since the tube opening was much bigger -.-)
Liquid Metal was easy to apply, only a 2mm diameter drop for each of CPU and IHS.
My Tip first pull the syringe a bit back and then squeeze gently.
