Default Ivy Bridge IHS

Ivy Bridge proven to suffer from poor thermal grease by VR-Zone.com

Not sure if anyone saw this or how valid it is but i saw it a few days ago and thought it was interesting none the less...

Thoughts?

the same article has been floating around since the nda was lifted...

intel wants to save money or something so they cheaped out on tim between the package and ihs...

there was a thread on NCIX that a site put "proper" tim and the temp dropped 15C

i dont have the article and it wasnt posted so i cant direct you to it.

lol you found it!

i guess it was tldr

Until that same test is carried out with other processors as well, it is meaningless. For all they know, SB, Nehalem and every other architecture uses the same TIM under the IHS. If that is the case, their conclusion would be blown out of the water.

At one point, having a "naked" proc was a badge of true courage. I personally think it'd put a bit of the fear back into enthusiast computing which would be a good thing. :)

Hopefully Intel will take note and fix it in the next revision.

But we already know that. SB used fluxless solder. The IHS was essentially on permanently, unless you wanted to take a blowtorch to it or something.

Asrock P67 Extreme4 UEFI & Drivers thread [Extreme6 & Pro3 owners welcome] - Page 42

Intel has openly admitted they changed the thermal package they were using for IB, and it's inferior (and no doubt cheaper) than soldering it like the SB chips.

Edit: And yes, the CPU die is actually still attached to the IHS in this picture. Like i said, pretty much permanent. Red circle points out a glob of solder.
