So question is: Does he deem it worth the risk? -5° during full load on the hottest core seems not that worth to me considering the price tag. -13° on the coldest core sounds nice at first, but isn't really great, I guess, because the you're focussing on the hottest core, right?

He doesnt pay for these chips so bravery thing is not really a concern. What I think is great though is that once he confirms its achievable, he can possibly begin working on his delidding tools.

For many of us, delidding is not worth it due to the risk of damage. However when tools designed for this are brought into the picture then, I think it can be worth doing, even if its 5C. You have eliminated the chance of damage so much.

I'm currently supporting the Ncore V1 kickstarter with very interesting progress. He has even designed his naked die mounts with RGB now.

The difference with this over delidding in general, is that you don't replace the IHS further decreasing temps.

So delidding something you paid thousands for, only to gain maybe 5C in temp difference AND to throw your warranty out of the window? When it could give away the coming weeks...

Then you'll sit there with no CPU, with a non working PC and thousands thrown out of the window. And for what? 5C difference?.

Nah, in my eyes it's not worth it. If I wouldn't be paying for the CPU though, then it would be a completely different story.

Yep you have a valid point there with the bravery aspect, and in the future I may have to dip my toe into de-lidding with my 8700k but I will see first what it runs like as I'm not going to be stressing it too much.

Kickstarter project sound interesting too

well for one, I will never buy a CPU for thousands of pounds. And Just because I say its worth it, it doesnt mean I will do it.

What I am saying is that the results should i take that road would be worth the journey "if" I choose to. I look at this from a performance point of view, not financial.

That’s fair enough, my apologies if I seemed as if I was a bit harsch, it wasn’t my intent at all. But you make fair and valid point(s) though, even though I personally look at it from both views

Plus, I was thinking more of ”thousands” in yours and my currency, not really in pounds/dollars as that is a huge difference.
