I did not do a full blown test, i simply mounted the stock cooler with mx2 between cooler and IHS and got 52C in bios while idling.
Delided with mx2 between die and IHS and cooler, i got 32C in bios idling with same settings. Fan speeds were locked at 1K.
Yeah, its a must do thing for anyone planning to OC.
OC or stock?Speedstep(frequency down to powersaving clocks) or full clocks with/without turboing but idle? We need moar cores!!!...er, info.
32ºC(if Celsius degrees) would seem a bit high after delidding if stock & idle
. Maybe the gap isn't closed or too much TIM between die-IHS-cooling solution. Don't wanna know what it does when @full load.
