Intel this week recalled one of its boxed processors because the bundled cooling system the company supplied was insufficient and the CPU may not have performed as intended. For any Intel partners with stock, this specific chip is being recalled and those who need the chip are recommended to use a tray/OEM version which does not come bundled with a cooler and thus use your own.

The processor in question is the boxed quad-core Xeon E-2274G (Coffee Lake) with a TDP of 83 W. The boxed CPU was supplied with Intel’s DHA-A heatsink (PN: E97378-003) that apparently cannot cool down the chip is all types of its use cases, which is why Intel now has to recall it. The cooling system has been used by Intel for CPUs with an 84 W TDP since at least 2013, which makes the whole recall bizarre.

Well no wonder the stock cooler can't cool it. It's basically a DDR4 4790K on crack.

The TDP is just a social construct as far as Intel is concerned. Is it really 83W ? Who knows, it's just number.

By the way 83 is really funny number, it almost sounds as if someone did in fact measured this thing. We know that isn't really the case but it sounds legit.

Funnier still that cooler has shipped for a few years with chips with the same Tdp , and were fine.
If it aint broken clearly the myth of intels Tdp's is now.

This is what happens when engineers have to listen to the marketing department.
