Reference For Die Size and to show no FIVR in the way.Test Used:
Wprime1024 5.1ghz 1.48vBefore: 96C
hit and failed within seconds (hard to tell what load after 2 minutes would have been probably 105+)After: 78C
Warmest core and passed
Under ln2 without Delid running XTU we are going postive temps at -145c hits 20c loaded.
So I would suggest everyone delid
Replace TIM under IHS and then put IHS back on.
Skylake bottom Devils Canyon top
The PCB is thin and Ive heard of it breaking in a vice, so I would stick to razor
. Press in on each of the 4 corners then do the sides last.Vice method fail (not me lol)
Also would suggest if you plan to let the ihs float instead of resealing (so you can keep it fresh) loosen the hold down first so you arent forcing the ihs to slide forward under pressure, then tighten the screws after brining the lever down
Also although they look identical, seems that skylake's IHS is a bit heavier than devil's canyon. Kind of interesting
EDIT: some more experience
Sorry for my Ugly hands
Here is a delid...
And Lap....Using A Clamshell to hold it freely as to not put any downward force in it besides its own weight.
Light Lap not even down to to the copper..Im sure there is very small concavity left which is fine I just want to lower the edges a bit.
And Inside Polish....
My Modest Water Cooling Bench Setup
XTU 5GHz on water
with really nice temps.
Small disclaimer this is in my basement. 21-22c idle temps, 19c ambient temp.
