I’ve delidded 4 9900k and all of them produced a 8c to 10c drop it temps with a copper ihs. Has anyone has better results with stock ihs. I think it has to be sanded down to fit again properly but I’ve never had the patience. Tried direct die with the Der8auer Intel 9th Gen OC Frame and my cpu got damaged from to much pressure wouldn’t try that again.
