Caseking Starts Selling Skylake-X Direct Die Cooling Frame

Caseking, in partnership with overclocking prowess Der8auer, have introduced a new overclocking product for users that want to extract every little percentage of additional overclocking from their chips (they had already introduced 99.9% purity silver-based heatspreaders, too). The Skylake-X Direct-Die Cooling Frame is a solution that aims to replace Intel's Integrated Loading Mechanism (ILM), attaching itself to the CPU cooler mount holes, and enabling users to use direct-to-die cooling mechanisms (sans heatspreader). The idea is that users can "cut the middleman" and make do without both Intel's terrible TIM and their stock heatspreaders, achieving a much higher heat transfer form the CPU die to the CPU cooler and, therefore, higher heat dissipation, lower temperatures, and higher overclocking.
The Skylake-X Direct-Die Cooling Frame offers a secure mounting environment, is compatible with current Socket 2066 motherboards, and is manufactured in high-grade black anodized aluminum. Caseking says that these are crafted using "Perfect German engineering", and add that "The SK-X DDF is manufactured according to extremely tight tolerances to ensure an equal distribution of downward force. This helps to maintain optimum contact between the motherboard and CPU while ensuring all devices, such as PCIe cards or RAM modules, are recognized correctly. "

The Skylake-X Direct-Die Cooling Frame is available now from Caseking for €69,99.

Man this is expensive but taking in consideration the benefits it's probably worth the price

Waiting for direct die LN2 cooling results with this...

Actually just checked OCUK, the price isn't as much as I expected. £64.99 is inline with what I'd consider if I was going X299 and wanted the best cooling.

Replace that "g" with a "t" and I might forgive you for this statement.
