Delided My 7700k

Okay just finished my 7700k delid, and tested my temps and I'm getting 74C Max at 4.8ghz OC , I was getting these temps before the delid (with a room temp of around 18C) only thing now is my A/C went out today and it's around 30-33C in my house, and my radiator temp was at 33C when testing after delid

you guys think that I'm getting close to my pre-delid temps because my house is in the high 80's to low 90's?

also I applied just enough liquid metal to cover the die, so that the whole die is covered you guys think I applied too little or is that the point just to get the whole die covered?

  1. Covering the die isn't the issue it's filling the space between the die and the ihs.

  2. Well if that wasn't done correctly I'm sure I would have experienced way hotter readings

    I just know that if you put too much on it, it could possibly get on the chip and with conductive paste would be a bad idea

    As for my re-seal (silicon) I put a thin layer of RTV around the IHS leaving a gap on the top of the IHS

    I'm pretty much just wondering if ambient temp has a decent role on what temps I'll experience when testing, cause if I'm suppose to be seeing improved readings even with abnormal ambient temp then I have to re-delid

  3. If your only at 4.8Ghz those temps are "slightly" high. On the Overclockers forum there are numerous posts on this if you search. There are ppl running close to 1.4v 5/5.1ghz with temps lower than 74c.
