That's what AMD is pushing its customers to do! The @madness777 !!!I'm doing gameplay benchmarks, exact same track for 60 seconds. I'm using a 1080Ti HOF so it can get a bit toasty in the case especially now when it's 34°C outside
My sample was very hot from the start when I was benchmarking it under custom watercooling on open bench, for example linpackXtreme was pinned against 90°C tjmax and downclocking
Once I put it in the daily with the NH-D14 it was constantly hitting 90°C while opening firefox and games... linpack was downclocking to 3.7GHz and reducing TDP from the usual 135W to around 95W so I was getting pretty tired of it.
After delid and applying Conductonaut it hasn't hit anywhere close to 90°C in games, linpack still pushes it to 90°C but the CPU is doing around 4.1-4.2GHz scoring pretty much the same when it was watercooled, around 310Gflops. I haven't done tests with watercooling after delid but I'd assume it's much better as well. Sidenote I'm using Kryonaut for all my tests.
To be honest I wasn't expecting such a big difference but here it is
90C under custom WC while opening Firefox? LMAO! That's intel territory BS right there!
Edit: a few before someone starts calling 'fanboy' or 'trolling'.
