Time to delid 8700K?


Recommended Posts

My 8700k is running hotter and hotter. 2 Days ago I cleaned my computer case, reapplied TIM and temps are not better. I have now tried lowering vcore to 1.2v and clocking down 4.8Ghz. I have 12 security cams that record all night (8hrs per day) and with ~40% cpu load while recording my temps are just too high (around 70-80C). Running Aida64 stress test I have some cores at ~55C and some at ~100C!!! My fans are running at 100% under Aida64 stress test in my HAF X. The 8700k uses an NH-D15 FYI

 

Is it time to delid this thing? Should I sell it and try to replace it?

damn those are crazy high temps, should join us at LTX2020 there is a delidding booth.

 

I am so fearful of delidding new Intel cpus as their pcb are paper thin now with my luck would crack in half.

 

You have a good cooler and everything else on it to so fully agree a delid seems to be the only next option or swap for another cpu

*Full disclosure = this is not my first time 😉  I just so happen to have Cool Labs Liquid Ultra on hand not to mention a Rockit Cool delidder*

And I am back up and running!!! Preliminary results are AMAZING! Check out these load temps taken the same way as before! Yowza

Curious how the delid procedure went? It was super easy. I am sure that the TIM was totally "let go" under the IHS. Substantially less force was needed than what I know to be normal. I believe that I only needed enough shearing force to overcome the IHS adhesive because the TIM was not stuck to the cpu die whatsoever. This is what it looked like immediately after delidding. Looks like garbage TIM to me.

Next I cleaned it up as good as I thought was needed. Note that it does look like I could have done better on the IHS but it was suuuuper smooth already despite what it may look like.

Next I used the Rockit Cool to relid the cpu using Gorilla Gel Super Glue to bond the two together.

There you have it. A delidded, Liquid Metal'd and relidded 8700k 🙂  The only reason I was unsure about delidding is because personal history has taught me that some people do not want to buy a used delidded cpu.

Impressive results that really show how bad the intel factory stuff is...also incredible how the 3600 runs. Ryzen is the way to go for now. 

Personally, after you are done benching, I would opt for an eye pleasing 5.0ghz and try to get the voltage as low as possible.

That sounds like a good idea. I think I will get below 1.3v at 5.0Ghz. I will post back shortly

Though if this only sees camera recording duty you could probably downclock more.

 

you have all the delidding goodies.

1.28v is working 5Ghz.. so far. 

This puter is my main baby. It records 8 hrs a night and I use it during the day. I could clock lower but I like the idea of 5Ghz if nothing else. As is under full load the computer is cool (mid 60C) and quiet (fans are running 500-1000 rpm). 

 

I do have the right tools and they will soon be obsolete. 😞   Anyone need something delidded??

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software

    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
