Hi,Exactly. Compared to a 7960 or 7980, the 7900X die is very small and narrow. Even with direct die mounting like I have, proper contact between the die and the block is critical. Also, if the block only hits the center of the die due to it not being flat, it will put unwanted pressure in the center of the assembly which can bend it thus possibly causing it to not make proper contact in the socket. My 7900x was a bear to get mounted correctly with direct die. It is VERY sensitive to uneven pressure applied by the die frame. Add to that an uneven block surface, and you may as well buy stock in Thermal Grizzly, because you are going to use a lot of liquid metal trying to get the thermal contact just right.
Yeah I ordered a direct die frame off aliexpress it never showed up although the shipper said it did
Had to contact credit card and dispute the the charge from the obvious fraud seller aliexpress automatically took sides with never use that rat**** site again but it's all good cc did it's job well :doh:
