I'm asking about the poor physical contact between the block and IHS purely from my TIM and mount inspection (as seen in OP).
Although switching from the 115x Jet Plate to the general purpose Jet Plate as given slightly better contact, I'm worried that using the wrong Jet Plate will degrade performance. I'm not sure how a Jet Plate does effect performance or if one is even needed.
EK say to use 115x for 115x CPU's, but I hear the 9900K is concave compared to previous 115x CPU's which are convex.
