Honestly, I'm surprised it's not more. On I think Haswell-generation CPUs, I seem to recall people would get closer to a 20 C drop when switching to liquid metal. If that's right, this actually speaks to the amount of improvement in Comet Lake.

BTW, congrats to Der8aur for removing the soldered IHS. I tried to delid a non-soldered Haswell, but I even chickened out on that effort.

Sorry for reviving a old thread but i cant help it.

I delidded my 10900k in january this year.

No choice as the stock temp was way too sick. 80-90c.

After delidding and using razor to trim away the Soldered TIM as shown on how to do it by Der8aur, i manage to did it and overclocked it to 5.1ghz stable at 1.34v core.

No idea what max temp should i report here using which bench application.
