So I upgraded to an i9-9900k from an i7-7700k. Due to the generational upgrade, I also had to upgrade the Mobo and also throw in some more RAM (cuz why not). 

 

I also have some crazy plans for this build in the very near future, so check back for that.

Okay, so today im pulling my pc apart again, and im delidding the 9900k. I threw together an adapter plate, using TinkerCad, for the original RockItCool delidding tool. This should allow me to use it with 9th gen intel CPUs. 

Im printing it now and well see if it works or not. Wish me luck! :D

Oh god it came out perfect.

0.38mm difference between the 7700k (that this tool is made to delid) and the 9900k.

Okay, after several hours... I wet sanded using 320>600>1000>3000.

 

I removed ~0.24mm, and final product turned out good i think. Close to mirror finish, but purposefully left some haze for adhesion.

 

The corners are just a tiny bit rounded but i think its okay.

Also worth noting, there were some "cracks" in the die that I couldn't get out. They were from the factory, I think. I really dont think I did it. 

 

Gona try it anyways.

Alright, I'm posting from RedFury again. I have benchmarks and numbers and it's pretty exciting!

Firstly, during all CPU stressing, the GPU (which is on the same coolant loop as the CPU) never got above 31C. The GPU idles around 27-28C. Gaming, 34-41C.

 

Secondly, ambient is 23-24C. 

Spoiler with screenshots of AsRock Z390 Pro4 BIOS settings. The BIOS is set to 5.1GHz base, max 4 core speed at 5.3GHz. Vcore set to 1.360v with LLC2.

When Gaming, the CPU hits ~68c, and under maximum load it pulls upwards of ~220W with temps of ~80c. Observe:

BF5 for 3 hours:

UPDATE!

 

Im proud to say that after 14 days of stable uptime, Im confident this build is 100% stable. 80C max temps at any given time while video editing and rendering, gaming, etc. Max speeds of 5.3GHz, 1.36 final core voltage. 220W maximum power draw. No crashing no matter what. 

I am one happy boy! In the near future, I will be correcting the water block's flatness. I believe it is slightly un-flat (which would explain the 9*C cross-core  delta-T Im seeing). I'll be sure to post here on that when I do!
