    it doesnt have anything to do with 9900K or 2080. its only for PCH.. platform controller hub.. so ur other components run at proper bus speed.. Thermal throttle point for PCH differs from laptop to laptop. its better to have some surface area to dissipate heat..

    Ahh right i was under the impression the PCH gets much hotter when overclocked, example being the 17 R2 / 15 R2 (Like your system ) i have added a heatsink to the PCH on mine?

    yeah but the higher the CPU bandwidth the hotter the PCH gets. My 7700HQ only stresses the PCH to a 65C. While the 7820HK for example in the same laptop chassis make sit hit over 80C.

    Since someone brought up the PCH, I had to check it out. Checked teardowns and I couldn't find it. I think I'm going blind.

    the more stress it gets on express lanes, the more temps you will find on PCH.. NVMe drives use the chipset PCI-E lanes

    that too, but with 2 NVME drives in my unit the temps are still lower than the HK variants. CPU throughput is a huge factor.

    They haven't shown a render or photo with 8 pipes yet, despite the highest end config being disassembled at CES. Like I said, the config of the pipes is different, but number the same (befitting the GPU with 2 shared heat pipes in the live photos)

    I very much believe some foolish tech at Dell counted the heat pipes while it was upside-down

    Or they counted 4 pipes on each cold plate (Cpu+Gpu):D

    Ideally, there should be only one heat-sink type, for any configuration, the one with max. number of pipes.

    Why bother with 2+ types of heatsink...making things too complicated and expensive.
