Hi lads,

I asked no#1 Intel expert that I know of this question, but he did not want to comment, because its undocumented pins, but perhaps, being HWBOT, someone know and can give a friendly heads up.


Picture found on google, I didnt do a picture when delid..




Its the 4 pins close to DIE I would like to know...

Thing is, I am considering LM TIM, and I don't feel too safe with pins that close...

Any advice? Silikone on the pins just in case?

Ended up putting the LM TIM carefully on the IHS and very little on DIE.


Improved my temperature ~4-5C at 5GHz 1.275V, however, at higher frequencies and voltages, what a world of difference!

5400 CB15 on water, no problem.... 5200MHz P95 8-8 no problem.... (5300 possible but high voltage)


Thanks for your suggestions, and the regular TIM, nail or tape, I will use on my... i3-7100T, I would like to lower the vcore as much as possible... No-power config, yes please :)
