hazium233 Got it installed. Seems like getting the Prism clips unhooked took a third of the time, and another nice portion was cleaning off the 2700X.

I didn't notice it when the Power arrived, but when I was installing it, three rows of fins were bent near one corner fairly substantially. I know I saw a review mentioning the same thing. I straightened them, even though they would have been hid by the vibration pads.

As for the install, it wasn't really all that bad. Fortunately the AMD washers hold the screws to the back plate. When I read through the instructions I thought I might need to tape the screws in on the back, but that wasn't necessary. The "top critical" review on Amazon complains that the install is so difficult even for an engineer, but I don't really see that. It might have been marginally more convenient if it could use the stock backplate, oh well. As long as the tiny screws hold, it should be ok.

I used my MX4 paste instead of opening the little packet that came with it. Used a grain of rice in the center, and two "half grains" above and below where I expect the die to be. This hopefully made less mess than the Prism cake of doom.

I also installed my Arctic P12 at the same time, I ended up putting it in between the two SW3s on the front panel, because it is easier to install 140, 120, 140. Finally pulled the GP12 from the rear exhaust. So I gained an intake, lost exhaust.

Earlier today I ran CB R20 as a last hurrah for the Prism. On stock 2700X core settings, Tdie peaked at 70.4C. First run with the TS140P and it hit max Tdie of 66.8C. I think room temp may actually be higher than it was earlier today too. Noise is more improved than the temperature though, although the fan curve for it and the P12 aren't remotely dialed in yet. I might rearrange the fan wire to headers, the free one the P12 could reach was the AIO. That one is locked to CPU temp and doesn't give me a curve to play with in Q-fan (just manual values in Monitor tab).

I took a metal ruler to the baseplate of the TS140P. Perpendicular to the heatpipes, my baseplate seems very flat. With the ruler parallel to the heatpipe direction, it is very slightly convex. Looked a little flatter than the pic back on pg 81 (but that was LGMRT I think), but my lighting is probably different anyway.

Will maybe take a look at the 2700X when it is cleaned off, I didn't really bother to look at the flatness when I installed it the first time with the Prism.
Sounds like you got it figured out.
Below images are of delided 2000 series. You can see the dies are side by side to width of IHS. The only part of IHS needing TIM seat/print is just a little bigger than area where dies are. I'm guessing at couple dry rice size dobs on IHS over where middle of each CPU die is will give you more than big enough TIM seat. I normally use rice size in center and end up with a circle reaching edges of IHS. If you can, do a practice seat to see if print is covering all of die. Below link has a little more info and images of TIM prints:

Used to be true for me too. Could build a system in little over an hour. Not a perfectly detailed build mind, but better cable management than many we see.

doyll I hear you Owterspace, but it's no fun when delivery doesn't arrive until a day or two later. Been there, done that, won't do it again. Now I wait until delivery is in hand.

Owterspace That's crazy talk, Id have my system gutted and waiting once the tracking said out for delivery

hazium233 I got a package today. Will probably get to tearing stuff out and installing tomorrow though.

They say nothing about doing multiple re-mount and re-seating of coolers. Therefore I'm guessing they seated coolers once. Only way to know seats are good is mount cooler several times and see of each mounting gives same temps.

8mm heatpipes don't need as many fins to same amount of heat 6mm heatpipes because of bigger circumference. Actually TRUE Spirit 140 Power has 17.36% more heat transfer area from heatpipes to fins than TRUE Spirit 140 does.

Not measuring the air temp into cooler each time CPU temp is recorded leaves room for error in results that recording air temp into cooler each time leave no doubt. They did not record air temp into coolers each time they recorded CPU temps so we do know that they were always the same.

As for the evenness, it is very slightly convex, which did not prevent us from getting a uniform print across the entire surface area of the heat distributor of the LGA2011 processor

the number of aluminum fins in the Thermalright TRUE Spirit 140 Power was reduced from 50 to 46, and the estimated radiator area decreased from an already modest 6950 to 6390 cm2
