Fermi delidding for LN2 Clocking

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here ever attempted to run a fermi card on LN2 Without the IHS? I am pretty sure that my card will have some horrible thermal paste and I am wondering if I can run direct die or if I should just fill it up with kryonaut and move on?

Two out of three cards I ever had had air bubbles trapped between the die and IHS. Might be worth it to replace the IHS even if you don't mount directly to die.

Did you see any gains from changing this? I have a few fermi cards laying around, would be fun to delid them. Stuck at 950-980 MHz core on air now.

I only remounted the IHS on one card, but didn't test clocks afterward. Remaining cards I used with direct-to-die mount to avoid paste cracking.
