This is what confused me, the 9900K comes already soldered onto the IHS (best decision yet from that Company), still we have some here who think that delidding it will make it vastly more superior with heat transfer.
This on going disease has carried over from all those years of Trash Intel paste-gump, that they continue to delid their current 9900K's under that illusion of getting superior heat performance transfer.
Hope everyone considers the facts before undertaking such an insane delusion, you know you won't get any of your money back from any retailer, when they discover your damaged folly.
Wasting your money on a continuing basis to help maintain the Capitalist System to turn over, then whom am I to stop anyone from contributing, ..... please carry on......
