Based on the information you've given me, I'll stick with the 115x Jet Plate.



Will I benefit from using the Goofy position on my 9900K or is it not worth it?



Last but not least, can adding dye to a loop reduce thermal performance?



Thank you.


Just my opinion - if you’re going to commit to any warranty voiding action like lapping, you might as well go all the way and delid. I just did yesterday. Provided you don’t use the razor blade and you get the apparatus, it’s pretty hard to screw up.

I thought about lapping the block seen as I've had it for years, so no warranty. I'm going to hold off on IHS removal. I appreciate the benefit... and the equipment that's available today to achieve removal, but it's a risk I won't be taking for the foreseeable. I appreciate your advice though.

I understand, and respect that. If you change your mind, there’s plenty of support out there.

Your block is fine and your CPU contact is fine.
Mine is very similar. Idle temps depend of ambient temps, if outside is 15-17C idle Temp of CPU is 25-26C.
That mean contact is normal. Thermal paste don' need to spread in all corners of CPU and to cover 100% of CPU if you put thermal paste in middle.

You can spread with plastic part all over CPU if you want.

They said that regular or upside down was identical.

But now that I think of it...if the TIM worked as intended, there should be an even distributed conduction of heat from die to IHS, so the orientation of the block should theoretically be irrelevant.

I have to reread the article but it would stand to reason that a delidded cpu using liquid metal between die and ihs should have near 100% heat conduction, so the block orientation shouldn’t be relevant.

Maybe I’m assuming too much.

It does have 100% heat conduction. All the heat produced is carried away.
What we are interested in is the difference in temp required to do that. Physics demands there be a difference in temp for heat to flow, but better conductors allow closer to zero temp difference.
A heat sink made of silver may require a 5c Delta to remove 100 Watts while an aluminium one needs 10c for the same 100 Watts.
