So you prefer adding an extra rad or lapping the ihs and cooler..

did think lapping would have such a big effect!
"We already have great temps after we delidded our ivy's,
why go through all the trouble lapping, finding new ways to lap the inside ihs,
if it only shaves of another 3C, if any.. "
would i really benefit running 5.0ghz ibt,
and my hottest core went down from 84C to 81C , and that only during stresstesting
the difference is even less if you use your comp normal..
no need to spend money on a extra loop after delid, or the time and effort to lap for little gain, or none
sure sometimes it seems
you have a extra tempdrop of 5C like notion,
but ambient could have changed, your mount could have been better then last time,
theres always a.. i think about 3C "error difference in temps too,"
could have been anything that makes the difference in temps after delid,
i dont need more tempdrop after delidding, i need lower vcore,
wish i would have a way to lap that off ...lol
of to bed, kids are here this weekend..
