That temp @4.41GHz is quite the same as mine. Really good. BTW do you pain the area around the socket? A couple weeks ago, i found a little bit leaking near the mosfet. Idk it's because i put too much or the magnet from my screwdriver draw some out, kinda accidentally put in near the socket when i installed the card. Anyway, i pain the whole board with nail polish to make sure.

Speaking of the waterblock for SR-2, did u order from nateman_doo from evga?

I did not paint anything with nail polish. If you look closely at this picture:


You can just barely see the Kapton-tape I put on the SMDs of the CPU to protect them. I had no spill and mounted the cooler multiple times. Thats another nice thing about LM, you can remount with the same application and don´t make a mess.
I was very careful to use just the right amount, very little LM is needed. I spread it around without any 'puddles' forming and used even less on the cooler surface. On the cooler I just used what I had left on the Q-tip to make a shiny silver surface but no visible drops.

This way I had nothing spilling or squeezing out. I had the board vertical with a big piece of Kapton underneath the socket and gave it a shake, nothing came out.

The waterblock is from Liquid Extasy http://www.liquidextasy.de/ . They still make those waterblocks new, but production may take a few months.

Just a short update:



So far the system is still alive and no signs of instability or degradation from sanding down the die and using LM. I´ve run a few bench-sessions with it, turned it on every day to check on it.
I think now the gain from going direct die is becoming obvious, 60°C on the cores @1.56V.

It has been nearly a month and the CPU is still alive, I pushed it shortly to 1.62V on two cores for a 5,2GHz validation: https://valid.x86.fr/7i74mt

Tough little chips. So for the short term, there is no worry about lapping a die directly. I´ll put it into storage now and keep the liquid metal on there. I´ll test it again when I´m done with some other projects :)

5.2GHz does not get you into the top 15 from the year 2015 -2016. Were in 2019 now with better tools. The top overclock is 9.2GHz.

Actually I´m top 15, exactly place 15th: https://hwbot.org/benchmark/cpu_frequency/rankings?hardwareTypeId=processor_2105&cores=6#start=0#interval=20

Anything above 6GHz is a faked validation. There is no way to unlock the multi on those and you will not get the BCLK any higher. Not even LN2 can help you there and please remember I´m still on ambient water.

So close to my best score with my I7 980X. Personal best score is 1103 in CB R15. Dit it on plain air cooling, but at ideal temperatures out side. So if you are up for a challenge, beat my best score so far.

It looks like you could be right making a lot of users cheats. I don't know anything about this processor, but c'mon, one user has a multiplier of x66.

Heh already did that: https://hwbot.org/submission/4290997_

Currently the fastest CB15 on ambient cooling for the X5650.
