Is it only me or the IHS is made of copper? The last image shows four holes which they drilled for some reason, and the color of the material resembles copper. If so, this is yet another thing done right (along with the soldering). Man, if it turns out the extra cores are unlockable... Intel is in huge trouble :) although I doubt it, as it would cannibalize their EPYC sales.
I'm pretty sure both Intel and AMD have made the IHS out of nickel plated copper since they started using them.

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
Every IHS since Pentium 4 was soldered.
muh??? ....

even the HEDT has a TIM IHS instead of solder ... with Intel ...
soldered since P4 .... i think not ... a C2D E7200 has a TIM no solder (so is the C2D E8400/500 and many other after them )

Intel has used TIM on their CPU's for a long time, not in HEDT at 1st but it seems now they are even going for TIM in that segment.

remember :
https://www.techpowerup.com/165882/tim-is-behind-ivy-bridge-temperatures-after-all
yep ... soldered right?
Kabylake/skylake-X?
http://wccftech.com/intels-core-x-series-skylake-x-and-kabylake-x-will-not-be-using-soldered-integrated-heat-spreader-ihs/ don't think so ...

Haswell to Haswell Devil's Canyon refresh was also a "better" TIM refresh move

actually the TIM is not that bad .... but on HEDT it's questionable to not solder the IHS

They used to. You don't have to be rich to be an enthusiast. Remember the old 300mhz Celeron? No L2 cache... you could OC to 500Mhz easy. Now they are 10x the Ghz and 10x the cores.... holy shit!

Edit: Now that I think of it, it was either Celeron or Pentium back then, or K6 series.... And I remember the prices on even the Celerons being too high--for me anyways.
Oh, I remember those well. I had my first job building PCs back then and while I put together a lot of systems, I was stuck with a 486 (not even Intel, it was an AMD). But between those Celerons and the new Kaby Lake Pentium, I don't recall any entry level CPU being sought after by overclockers.

PS: There was also Cyrix, but they gave up the ghost right about when the said Celerons came about.

"Cheap" AMD is using goldplated parts to have better heat transfer and solder adhesion, while "expensive" Intel uses grey or white goo.

I think its AMD 1:0 Intel.

Remember that one, got it to 800 MHz semi-stable. :D

Hmm, it seems I've been living with this illusion in my head for so many years :). Thanks for pointing that out. It's maybe the fact that there are some custom copper IHS's for sale out there that made me think that, but on a second glance it appears that their purpose is a bit different (thicker, more rigid for higher pressure mounting, LN2, etc.).
