The thing I hate most about my i7-6700K:
Garbage, unevenly spread TIM (I don't see any other reasons for the temps to be this way, this was the case for my older H100i V2 with Arctic Silver Ceramique 2 and it is the case now with a brand-new H100i V2 with pre-applied TIM which is very good from what I found out with a Google search)
Core #1 is always at least ~5C hotter than any other core... And it's sometimes like 12C hotter...
I wonder if it's enough to get Intel to replace my CPU

@done12many2 What? Ryzen doesn't show individual core temps? How the hell are you supposed to know how hot does your CPU actually get?
I'm using AIDA64 Engineer version to stress test, I always thought it's enough to determine temps and stability after OC, but was I wrong?
Also, thanks for the offer with your delid kit but shipping to Poland and then back to you would probably cost me more than buying one myself... Although now that I actually checked, there is no decent kit available, der8auer delid kit was available for ~45$ but it's out of stock in the only store that had them
@Morgan MLGman Nope. With Ryzen, you get a Tdie temp per CCX. Example, my TR chip shows 2 x Tdie temps. One for each active 1/4 of the chip. You do get a "Tctl" temp reported too, but that's nothing more than the Tdie + a default 27c to activate fans faster. Dumb setup in my opinion.
As far as AIDA64, if that's all you need, that's all you need. lol It's not aggressive enough for what I do, but that doesn't mean that it's not just right for you. The problem I have with AIDA64 is takes too little voltage to run successfully. As little as 10mv above what it takes to simply boot Windows in some cases.
Too bad you're too far. All the fun stuff is over here.
