Mine was 10 seconds faster though.
I blame Intel's poor IHS design and lack of quality control. I'm going to be delidding soon. Sick of the high temps.
This is my contact paper test on the IHS with DT Sniper water block.
The pink color is where proper contact is made for optimum cooling. As you can see in the photo most of the pink is on the outer edges of the IHS leaving the center/horizontal die area with weak contact.
To get over this problem wtih the IHS the IHS needs be lapped for high contact over entire IHS.
I think delidding and making proper contact directly on die is the best method for cooling.
When I delid I am going to use contact paper test to see how well the contact pressure is directly on the die.
