A 5950x delid? In this economy!?

ID: gqs3qw2

It’s only bad if i fuck it up. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

If you want even more performance you can find water block's that go directly on the die.

ID: gqs680s

You gonna direct die mount a waterblock or heatsink? I've done this myself and the temp drop is significant even though mounting is rather stressful in the same way remounting a GPU cooler is.

At this time of the day, in this part of the country, localized entirely within your computer room!?

Steamed Ram?

It wasn't soldered?

ID: gqs5ccr

It was, I removed the solder.

ID: gqs5nig

God damn

ID: gqs5wnk

Y tho

ID: gqs4mvh

My question as well. I was told AMD solders all their cpus

ID: gqs5ckz

It's still possible to delid a soldered IHS. derbauer has delidded Ryzen 3000 before with his delid tool:

If it works... cool!!!!

If you break it.... BAN!!

No pressure

ID: gqs6ime

Yea, here I thought wallstreetbets had some crazy shit happening. Nope, nothing like this!

You're a mad lad and I love it. What's the plan?

ID: gqs61yt

No plan, just wanted to see if i could do it. And for internet points.

ID: gqs66bd

Haha, love it. Well hopefully it still works and you can enjoy it. Absolutely love mine

The balls on this man

ID: gqs6g8b

I can't wait for an update from them. Truly balls/ovaries of pure steel and full yolo mode.

Madlad™ certified.

wow! any footage on the next progresses? like temps comparison

ID: gqs5n62

Comparison to what? It’s brand new. Never even used it.

ID: gqs5phz


ID: gqs6zhq

Should've run some benchmarks on it first, get a baseline.

ID: gqs7702


ID: gqsec1k

I would've at least uh.. tested it first made sure it works, and was a decent sample before delidding it, especially since its soldered.

ID: gqspdd9

It’ll be funny if it turns out it was DOA.

ID: gqs63gj

I think they meant compared to a non-delid chip. Performance, temp etc...

ID: gqsddlf


8 : Anonymous2021/03/13 08:24 ID: gqs67xl

But why

ID: gqs9uhf

I have the same CPU and it works perfectly and cool. Why would I need this?

ID: gqscyli

Extreme overclocking for "sport"

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they never stopped to think if they should

11 : Anonymous2021/03/13 12:21 ID: gqsjvul

I like the chiplets! If he delids, I delid!

Disclaimer: I am not a cpu advisor.

ID: gqtffnf

Can confirm, ate quite a bit of lead solder as a kid. And also as an adult.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/13 08:16 ID: gqs5qpr

I'm impressed by the shear size of ur balls

13 : Anonymous2021/03/13 08:54 ID: gqs7wpo

Why Delid though? Is there any benefit?

ID: gqs9hao

Make cpu go brrrrr

ID: gqsj9aj

It's the hardware equivalent of installing Arch Linux - it's mostly done for bragging rights. 😉

14 : Anonymous2021/03/13 08:26 ID: gqs6bo4

Haven't people done this in the past and got only a very small change in temps? Like 3C at most?

ID: gqs7xr4

If I literally had money to burn 3c would be worth it.

ID: gqsb3k7

In my experience with mounting a EK water block directly with liquid metal to a 3950x and 5800x the change is bigger than 3C but I didn't really do it very scientifically so maybe when I can get my hands on a 5950x I'll do some proper before and after tests

What happened to the pins?

ID: gqs5t7c

I'd hope it's in an OEM shipping tray or socket stripped off a MB.

ID: gqs5vl7

Only hope... waiting for op reply

16 : Anonymous2021/03/13 08:44 ID: gqs7d17

Respect. I have vaguely been pondering to do the same. How did you do it? what tools? temperature? I am not so keen on the brute force method...

And what is the effect on thermals?
