This is my waterblock before we start.
I woke up this morning and thought geez, i'm kind of sick of heat and the 9900K, i didn'y pay top dollar to be getting such crap results.
For years i was using the J2 Jet Plate and thought i was getting amazing results. I thought how about we try the wider jet plate with .7mm thickness and see how we do.\
TIM in use it Thermaltake TG-7.
As you can see up to almost 20c drop in temperature just by changing the Jet Plate and also ensuring in the link that the copper plate to the block was positioned according to EK.
EK states in a release in 2013( which who actually follows this sort of news?) here.
J2 was standard for 115x but i would high recommend using the fatter J3 as i was sure that core and imc layout had changed over years.
Also want to note without temp results but with TIM usage i would also recommend going a little bit bigger than a pea size dot, this is just not enough for the 9900K.
Results obtained after running [email protected]
for about 2 minutes on each setup.
