De-lidding AMD’s Ryzen CPUs provides no meaningful temperature decrease

 
Der8auer, who has recently de-lidded AMD’s latest Ryzen CPUs, has concluded that de-lidding offers no meaningful temperature decreases or overclocking benefits, at least when using traditional CPU coolers. 
 
This means that Ryzen is simply not worth de-lidding, offering minimal thermal benefits of 3 degrees on average and 1 degree on the hottest CPU core. These gains are certainly not worth the risks involved when delidding a soldered CPU, which would likely result in a damaged/dead CPU unless the delidding is done by a professional.
 
  

 

In short, users of Ryzen should not attempt this at home, as the benefits are simply not enough to risk your new £330-500 CPU.
