    The optimal size is the same as those listed for the dm3.

    Thanks Meaker
    I happened to get my hands on a few different IHS's. Soooo I'm going to solder the ihs to the heatsink , LM between the IHS and the die. And see what happens. Lol

    You can't solder the IHS to the die as the socket needs to latch it. Plus the tolerances for such a setup would come down to fractions of a mm.

    I'm not saying it's impossible just it will take a lot of reworking and precision/care.

    Ahoy! I’m about to retire my p370em and purchase the p870tm. I was about to press go on one with the i7 8086k cpu, but I thought I’d just ask around to see if anyone had specific thoughts on that? Anybody had a play with one?

    All roads point to Intel hoarding the top bin 8700K's (approx 5.2 and better) for the past few months and rebadging them as a "new" SKU.

    All the pre-binning providers seem to be almost completely out of anything faster than 5.1 for a little while now. That means to me the chance of an 8700K you buy right now (unless old stock) being capable of 5.2 or better, is basically zero.

    If you're not planning on heavy overclocking you could easily match the slightly increased single core turbo in 10 seconds of changing BIOS settings and you'll get the same experience

    Then again the cost is a lot lower than those binning places.

    Well...I’ll prolly not OC it for another 5 years and then try a half assed attempt to keep up with whatever cpu’s are doing in 2023, like I did with my 3940xm bought after reading about your tinkering.

    That’s assuming I can’t upgrade to the next gen after the 8’s...dunno 100 bucks extra is not so bad? It would certainly cost me more than that if I got an 8700k and then wanted to upgrade to the 8086 later.

    Is an upgrade to gen 9 on the p870tm likely?
