AMD’s Ryzen 7 CPUs are soldered

 
The world famous Overclocker Der8auer has de-lidded one of AMD’s new Ryzen 7 CPUs in a recent video, proving once and for all that AMD’s new Ryzen series CPUs are soldered.  
 
This means that AMD should not be de-lidded by consumers, as it will most likely result in a dead CPU and at best will only result in a minimal change in idle/load temperatures.  
 
Intel’s use of a thermal compound/paste has given their CPUs stricter thermal limitations, as thermal compounds have a lower conductivity than a direct solder, leading to raised temperatures, especially when overclocking. 
 
In recent years, de-lidding has been popular amongst overclockers using recent mainstream Intel CPUs, which have used a thermal compound for thermal conductivity rather than solder since the release of Ivy-Bridge. Premium-grade intel E-series processors on X79 and X99 are soldered and therefore should not be de-lidded by consumers. 
 
 
 
 
 
To be clear, AMD’s Ryzen 7 CPUs are soldered, so please don’t try to delid your new Ryzen CPUs as this will almost certainly kill your processor.
