    Kinda glad I read this. Was considering getting a cpu delidded by them. But I was wary since they don’t warranty the service for a year unless you buy the cpu from them directly. Which of course is not something I’d lightly do since intel has a three year warranty on their CPUs. Plus I did have one of my older CPUs die on me and they just sent me a new one once I sent in the old one.

    Can anyone who has a 9900k tell me how they keep it cool? Delid? What thermal paste, clock speed? I am hitting like 90c in bf5 4.7ghz with - 130 undervolt.. Not liking this to much.

    I have another 9900k which I delidded and repasted it myself and also I cleaned it ( removed the STIM completely but it works great plus i asked them if as they say the cpu works 100%, they keep it and send me another one untouched same as mine before they ruin it but they refused. I have the delidding tools but I wanted to know how the professionals do this service but believe me I did a much better job than them.

    Did you delid it yourself? And is it worth doing? I can't go higher than 4.7ghz..

    Yes I did and i see it worthand, I do 5 ghz overlock in AWCC with -100 and temps max at 82. Plus I think not all the CPUs has the same overclocking capability ( could be wrong ).

    Yeah, that does look sloppy. Probably had uneven pressure while resealing.
    I'd delid it again, remove all the silicon adhesive and not reseal it to see how the temps fair.

    I’m happy with the one I did myself and will sell this one to a friend who is interested in it.
