Hello fellow OCers!!!
I was wondering if any of us on here run with no IHS. I have two friends that have been running with no IHS on both their i7s. One of them has an i7-3770K. The other has an i7-4970K . They get pretty sweet temps with a Corsair H100i AIO under load with no OC. Like 55ºC in a 67ºF~70ºF ambient temperature. Now both of their rigs sit directly under a vent from the ceiling. They get blasted by those vents. Also no sunlight can touch the rig as the rooms have no windows. So alot of me feels like its the environment their rigs are in that gives those temps. Or is the die being naked and directly touching the water block helping that much? I warned them of corrosion but they said they check every 3 months and apply new kryonaut every time.
Basically I'm asking for everyone opinion on the matter really. I and thinking about doing the same thing on my i7-7700K but use TG Conductonaut instead. I would be running like that for about 3-4 months depending on the results I get.
I would like to thank everyone in advance for their opinions and advice!
