This processor was used by Der8aer at the G.Skill booth and he went ahead and delidded the processor as well at put the chip under LN2 which reached temperatures of -185C.

Famous overclocker der8auer has delidded the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor in his latest YouTube video. He's done this to evaluate if the benefits justify the risk. The IHS on the new Pinnacle Ridge processors is soldered directly to the die with Indium, so the delidding process is a little more difficult than before.
Ok well technically it is not really working, but the system does boot up all the way to the BIOS and memory checks, but it does not go any further. Famous overclocker Der8auer went through a blind process to discover that there is a particular ID pin on EPYC CPUs that when covered allows the CPU to be booted up by a X399 motherboard.
Lian Li introduced a few cases at CES 2018, and we found their new 011 to be a great design both visually and functionally. In order to make sure they were on the right path...
They will be offering COre i7-8700K chips that have been binned towards achieving guaranteed speeds of 5 GHz, 5.1 GHz, and 5.2 GHz and on top of that they will be outfitting these chips with a 99.9% purity silver heatspreader.
Intel's brand new Core i7-8700K, reviewed by us here, has been taken successfully overclocked to 7.3GHz across all cores. In his usual fashion, Der8auer paired up the 8700K with an ASUS Maximus X Apex motherboard, removing the factory-installed heatsinks and perparing the board for extreme LN2 cooling.
If you thought we were done with news about Der8auer, you would be wrong. The German overclocker has taken to seeing just how fast he can move data, and has seen some amazing results from the combo of AMD's Ryzen Threadripper and X399 chipset.
We've been featuring a lot of news related to German overclocker Der8auer lately, and that is because he has been a constant figure in the high-end performance scene the last few weeks. Well, this week is no different, as he has taken Intel's latest top-tier HEDT CPU, the Core i9-7980XE, which we reviewed here, to the extreme. Extreme being 6.1GHz across all 18 cores. We will let that sink in for a moment.
Just over a week ago we reported on Der8auer delidding an Intel Skylake-X CPU, and this week he released a new video, embedded below, detailing what he found when removing the heatspreader on an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X chip. By using a prototype of his own Threadripper delidding tools, he was able to heat the CPU in the oven at round 220C for a little less than an hour, which liquefies the solder and loosens the glue, and get the heatspreader off with very little force.
Famed overclocker Der8auer recently revealed a delidded Intel Skylake-X i9-7920X in a Facebook post, and announced that the CPU was compatible with his Delid-Die-Mate-X tool. As shown in the image he posted on Facebook, shown below, the die on the i9-7920X is significantly larger than the one found on the existing lower core count i9 chips.
