While I do agree there is an inherent problem with LGA2011.

It's bloody outdated compared to Haswell :mad:

If they really want to push their X line they should just ditch IVY-E and release Haswell-E already.

That's not going to happen cause the so called E platform is just bits and pieces scattered from what remains of their Xeons after production.
They should just go back to One socket one chipset for all the X, K and non K like the 775 days

There is the base line for my futur TIM testing and a possible lapping if the IHS is not 100% flat.

First paste testing.
Noctua NH-1 versus EVGA Frostbite.



Well, the frostbite suck .... loll !
I had good hope on the frostbite paste since it seems to spread well under pressure but it did not deliver good results.


Edit, i also prepared the CPU for the incoming CLP and CLU "TIM".

EDIT 2 : I just redid the Frostbite application but my first ony appeared to be perfect. I had similar result on second application, quickly peaked over 80°c on AIDA. EVGA Frostbite seems is bad at this job...
