    Are people finding that the 10900K runs hot? Here is a screenshot of mine at 5.2Ghz. Wondering if direct die is the way to go...? I'm running on a NZXT X72 360mm AIO and the 10900K is using stock cooling/IHS.

    Solder is shit mate. Not until you delid that sucker and run naked will you see a massive difference

    Yeah unfortunately there is a big inconsistency on 10th gen production solder thickness. Some run hot and some run arc reactor spec. Lol

    Not uncommon to see 60-70 degrees delta differences between idle and load depending on OC which is horrible.

    Absolutely recommend delidding if your not going to do sub zero runs. You can shave 8-10 degrees by just normal standard LM delid. I recommend Headin or Zarok here to do it properly.

    The biggest improvement you can do is running direct die as mentioned above BUT word of warning.. It's extremely difficult to get the CPU to mount correctly using the direct die frames on the market. You will most likely come across error codes.

    Biggest issue is the coating on the frame is too thick and it causes issues getting a good even mount for the CPU / pins to contact. Also issues with cooler plate contact to CPU.

    Also bare in mind if your using an Asetek aio cooler design with Asus ROG board the cooler generally fouls the capacitors on left side of socket because you have now lowered the height being that there is no longer an ILM.

    If you custom water I highly recommend the direct die waterblock from Thailand made by super cool computer. It's the superior product to all options. Zarok can help you out with this.

    Anyway, some things to think about before taking the journey. :)

    Yeah I would not call Headin the supreme master deliding. Anyone can do this with patience. Soldered processor needs 20 minutes tops.
    As Mr Spit says. A good delid kit. Then his method :thumbup: which is like a shaved off kebab stick to remove solder fast. Then finish with fitz polish for a shiny finish :thumbup:

    Kudo's to Mr Spit. :) His method is good. Keep your razors for girly legs

    Was just a recommendation for those two members who have done fair few. You don't need to be a master to delid but experience helps.

    I delidded a few of mine with a heat gun and IHS fell off. :shock:

    Each to there own. :thumbup:

    Why are you hyper sensitive? A 14 year old kid can build a computer. Without much experience then they learn correct pressures on connectors.
    It's a f'n tool. Delid kit :thumbup: I've done all mine with a rusty hand built vice. No markings on jaws. 15sec in, twist twist delidded.

    Anyone heard news for new 11th gen Intel chips?

    Little disappointing I think that 11900k will probably be an 8 core with only slight increase in turbo boost clock on one core? :(

    Think I be staying on my golden sample 10900kf.

    12th gen. is where it is at....later. 2022ish i think.
    11th gen is the v2 nuclear powered umpteenth gen of 14nm.

    Yeah I think I will wait till 12th gen 16 core mainstream so the rumor goes? That be interesting. :leet:

    It's pretty strong chip. All cores.
    Ambient:
    5.3ghz @ 1.28v
    5.4ghz @ 1.34v
    Chilled benching can do:
    5.5ghz @ 1.38v
    5.7ghz @ 1.51v.
    Managed 5.8ghz @ 1.56v recently. :thumbup:

    it is hard to wait. maybe ill cave in to the fetish before then. but ddr5 etc. :D
    pretty exciting time now that amd is competing. we actually get some real improvements.

    plus 11th gen has the xe new grfx. ...which is no biggy for gamers, but i like it. ...so maybe just maybe ill throw together a v2 nuclear powered 11th gen combo. i can't overclock for shit so. its just the nice plastic i like. ill keep my current ddr4.

    11th gen is around april 2021 ?
    im expecting a decent tax return in july next year so that would be my timing for it.
    1000$ on a cpu/mobo/and maybe the new noctua 12a cooler.

    Yeah I reckon it be okay if you don't already have a good 10th gen.

    I think if your happy with your 10th gen whatever then waiting for 12th is best move.

    I'm not sure but will 12th gen be different socket? So require new board obviously?

    Mines delidded.

    Yeah 10th gen is super dupa sensitive to temperature so the crappy solder makes it hard.

    Yours seems like a good chip, it's just temps.

    Did you buy it off eBay from Andy?

    Up to 8 cores, 11 gen will eat even the best 10th gen at max clocks. Looks like they might lose some fmax , but IPC will more than compensate. Power and heat will be it's down fall
