Those are all different dies.

What, specifically, makes these recommended for what specific AMD parts?

All of them. Those choices have been made by the R&D dept. after testing them.

Your ticket is still not answered?

Sorry about that. You're not the only one who had this issue. The first batchs of 1080Ti blocks were sent with the single-slot bracket not secured enough and this happened during the transport.

Open a ticket on our website and we'll send you a replacement shroud. Link for the ticket : https://www.ekwb.com/customer-care/

Any update on the shipping of Strix ti block? Submitted 2 tickets one on april 27th and another on may 1st. No reply whatsoever. At this point I'm just trying to cancel my order. @akira749

Liquid metal bonds/dries with copper. I have used it on an EK MX block. In order to apply it again lapping is required. That's why I said no liquid metal TIM if no lapping. The other issue is that Liquid Pro dried so quickly the second time I applied it to the block (after the first lapping) that I wonder about good contact.

I will also note that the EK block, as I recall, was very flat — unlike the spreaders on the 8320E and 8370E which were quite concave. So, unless one has dried-on liquid metal, lapping the EK block seems fruitless.

For all we know it means they tested Phenom, made the recommendation, and haven't tested anything since.

Basically, we're supposed to just take "because we said so" as the answer.

You are of course, perfectly welcome to set up your own lab and do the tests yourself and present your methodologies and findings . . . .

Myself, on the other hand, who could probably actually do that, . . . (wouldn't be the first time I've dug into things and reported findings on them)

I'm gonna take their word on it for now.


They're there to sell blocks, and the best way to do that is to be sure that users have the best results possible with EK branded hardware.

I am well aware that LM pastes bond to copper. It doesn't bond to Nickel plate however.

Just pointing out that EK advises against lapping their CPU blocks because they aren't flat, but get their flatness from tension applied at the block screws when the JP is installed and becomes one with the top. Then it is "flat".

Lapping the cooling surface of the block could infact alter the shape of the block's cooling surface. However, there are ways of cleaning the LM off the surface of copper. Maybe a hand torch/heat gun could heat up the LM enough to be mostly wiped away. You likely could not get everything but it could get quite a bit I'm sure. thinking.gif

Thats actually unbelievably easy to test. Pressure paper. For me when i ran bare die, after tightening down it was certainly FAR from flat. Even screwing down corners in steps (and repeated half a dozen times) revealed that there was more pressure on some sides of the cpu socket more then others.
