new cpu query

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Ive just received my delidded 7700k cpu and have a question.

By delidded i assume its already has thermal paste applied and its been sealed shut?

I want to attach my venon cpu cooler and am unsure whether i still need to apply thermal paste to it. it was previously attached to my old cpu.

Im just looking for some info on how to get up and running.

Cheers

ive also secured the cpu to the motherboard, do i still have to put thermal paste on the cpu before i attach the cooler? I suspect i do i just dont wanna break anything.

We replace the Intel TIM under the IHS with liquid metal, and then seal the IHS back on. You'll still need to apply thermal paste as usual between the top of the CPU IHS and your cooler.

Hi,

Ive got everything set up and working now but im looking for some advice on how to get the cpu to the advertised 5.1ghz.

I tried setting the cpu clock to 51 and then ran a prime 95 test but it failed which im assuming is probably due to now having a high enough voltage.

The motherboard I have is a GA-z270x-gaming 7.
im also using ram which is overclocked to 3200mhz

ive not overclocked in a long time so any help would be appreciated.

Prime95 will require more voltage to pass compared to the realbench stress test we use.
