i7-3770K, i5-3570K Heat Spreader. Does Yours Have Square or Rounded Edges ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had several i7-3770K and i5-3570K CPU's since they came out. The heat spreader on all of them, until recently, had square edges. The ones I've bought over the past couple weeks have rounded edges like most of the Sandy chips.
Just wondered if anyone else noticed this and knew if Intel is doing something different, like maybe soldering IVY chips now.

They may just be using left over IHS's.

My recently purchased 3770k has an IHS like the first link...temps sucked, high stock VID, and its a bad overclocker(1.38v for 4.7ghz). IHS was not soldered, same crappy grey hard TIM as the other IB chips.

Seems leaky, maybe it will be awesome on LN2 or Phase with lots of volts.
