CPU die blocks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure what sort of metal die they use on top of the CPU, bet wouldn't cooling performance be better if it was a cooper block on top of the core? instead of..... (Titanium? Steel?.....)

I think Copper + Copper heatsink is a good mix = much better heat transference.

Someone should do a test on this and see if better temp's could be achieved?

Or maybe taking whole die off and exposeing the core? Core + direct contact with the heatsink?

The cooper die on the cpu instead of this steel "what ever they use" would go great with water cooling loop's huh?

The metal over the die (the IHS, integrated heat spreader) is made of copper. It is nickel plated to prevent tarnishing and corrosion. Lapping it is usually the best option, removing the IHS (process called de-lidding) is generally a bad idea as you can easily damage the chip beyond repair, and cut your fingers open badly.

I have thought this would work well. It would be sweet if Intel teamed up with a high end cooling company to make a limited edition unlocked processor with a cooler directly attached to the core. Maybe a high performance water block. Although cleaning the water block would be a scary task.

That would be a awsome idea. Some should Patent this idea and sell it to Intel or AMD tongue.gif

Old cpus had the heat sink on the die. This has been done.
