Direct Die 9900K cooling with an AIO

Hello, this is my first post here on overclock.net. I have been browsing this forum for months and learned lots of useful stuff, but I have not found enough concrete info on the Internet for my particular needs and so here I am. I hope that a more knowledgeable individual regarding water cooling can help me out.

I have decided to delid my 9900K because I am very close to thermal limits in Cinebench and stress tests. A Rockit 89 awaits me in the next room. I have also placed an order for the Der8auer Direct Die guard, which is something I am not 100% certain how to go about using. I do not have a custom loop nor the funds to build one at this time, so I will attempt direct die cooling with an AIO. In his YT video about the 9th Gen Delid Die Guard, Der8auer explained that the frame is compatible with Asetek AIO (he specifically says Corsair/NZXT) with minimal difficulties/mods required! However, I have been told that I might need some M3 screws cut to size for this to work. Before I do that I am wondering if someone out there has already successfully done direct die cooling on the 9900K/1151 socket with an AIO without any mods. I own a Corsair H150i Pro and an EVGA CLC 280, both of which are Asetek Gen6 with slightly different blocks. The problem is that I am unsure if any of the standoffs included with the AIO (e.g. LGA 115x, 2066, AM4) will provide enough clamping pressure for the CPU minus IHS. Has anyone had any success direct die cooling with an AIO, and if so, what did you do? Thanks for any input.

If you are just worried about pressure on the die due to the included standoffs, just replace them with plastic washers.

I am worried that my AIO will not work in stock config. Hoping someone has actually done 9900K direct die with an Asetek AIO to lend some perspective. Do you think I will have everything I need to do it out of the box or will I need to go to the store and buy some m3 screws and cut them down to size?

Yes, you need longer M3. You can just buy M3 threaded rod and just cut to the length you need.

Damn I was worried you were gonna say that. That is a bit beyond my comfort level, but I suppose I will have to learn. Thanks

So do I just replace the AIO stand-offs for the backplate with M3 screws? Do the screws go through from front of motherboard to the back, or from back to front (same as included standoffs)?

What were your temps? 5.0-5.1 is about the absolute max to keep under Tjmax on the H150i.

Hi,
I'm sure you'd have to remove the mounting plate off the board so the aio will go past that point to make contact with the die.

i know this is old but just in case anybody else was looking into this...rockit cool has a good how to on attaching a direct die frame. basically they say to tape the back plate behind the mobo in place and then unscrew the screws from the front and remove the socket clamp thingy. then put the frame in place and screw it down in a zig zag pattern (dont screw 1 screw tight and then go to the next but hop back and forth and tighten them all at the same time).

as far as screws, they can be bought at a hardware store for 50 cents a piece. take the screws you are replacing with you to make sure they are the same size. and whatever nut you are going to be using if possible. get longer than you need and a hack saw blade. you dont really even need the saw just the blade will do.

then screw the nut on and screw it down. make sure to put the nut on lower than the place you intend to cut. then cut it with the hacksaw blade and then unscrew the nut off. screwing the nut off will clean up the threads. if you dont screw the nut on first then it might not screw on later because of burrs on the nut.
