Does Delidding improve Raven Ridge's thermals - Ryzen 5 2400G Delid

Will Raven Ridge operate at lower temperatures now?

Does Delidding improve Raven Ridge's thermals - Ryzen 5 2400G Delid

The overclocking Guru der8auer has taken his world famous delidding skill to AMD's new Raven Ridge series of processors, not only revealing the thermal impact of the modification but also gives a step-by-step guide on how to delid Raven Ridge using his Delid-Die-Mate 2 IHS removal tool. 

To use the Delid Die Mate 2 with Raven Ridge, users will need to purchase a newly designed adapter for the tool which will enable Raven Ridge support. Please note that AMD's pre-existing Ryzen series CPUs are soldered, which means that delidding is unnecessary and will almost certainly damage your CPU. The reason why Raven Ridge can even be delidded in the first place because of AMD's use of a thermal paste under the IHS rather than expensive solder using several rare earth metals. This Raven Ridge adapter will soon be available to order from CaseKing and several other retailers. 

After delidding, der8auer replaced AMD's stock thermal paste with a liquid metal solution called Thermal Grizzly, which offers higher levels of conductivity than standard thermal paste. der8auer then tested his newly delidded Ryzen 5 2400G and then compared both stock and overclocked thermals when cooled under an NZXT Kraken X42 AIO. 

We recommend that our readers give der8auer's video a watch to see his temperature graphs, but at stock he found the Ryzen 5 2400G to be 7 and 12 degrees cooler under Cinebench and Prime95 26.6 (12K) respectively, offering load thermals of 51 and 53 degrees under load respectively. While overclocked, the temperature differential increases to 10 and 15 degrees in each respective workload, resulting in load temperatures of 58 and 64 degrees after delidding.       

  


In his video, der8auer has also confirmed that CaseKing plans to sell delidded Raven Ridge CPUs, which will ship at a higher price but come with a warranty from the company.

Pretty impressive. That's a ton more heard room for OC'ing too. Really let you keeps things at a higher stable clock for longer intervals which will really help performance.Quote

This is why Liquid metal TIM is the way to go it fills in all the hidden imperfections between IHS and die or IHS/Copper cooler and improves heat transfer immensely.

I saw an 18C drop in Temp on my old 4790k @ stock clocks. Sadly on my 7700k ive only seen 10C but still satisfying.Quote

I don't want to sound brainy, but any thermal paste does that. It fills the microscopic imperfections between two surfaces, and removes gaps of air, which is basically an insulator. Why liquid metal is superior to regular paste is only because it has extremely better thermal conductivity. Thermal-Grizzly Conductonaut has 73 W/mk vs Kryonaut's 12,5 W/mk. And i don't think intel's toothpaste is nowhere near 12,5 W/mk. So the gap is even bigger.Quote

yeah probably a little dumb post from me. I chopped off half the post somehow. What i meant to include was there was no need for CPU Lapping, and since metal tim has better conductivity, there is less thermal resistance so more thermal energy transferred per unit of time.

I think I delidded first time on my 3570k and never looked back. I've recently switched to conductonaut too as I found there were even further improvements over the coollaboratory ultra tim I used previously.Quote

It happens. I often edit my posts.

Conductonaut seems to be less volatile, and more stable than coollaboratory.

I see AMD's point with this move. There is no need to solder lower-end CPUs if that means they will come at even lower price.

Comparing it to Intel... The very thought that you need delid on CPU to overclock properly it defies the primary selling point of K CPUs - overclockability. It is OK for non-K units to have thermal paste, but you pay extra for unlocked cores, and extra for chipset, and yet intel, in all their wisdom, guaranties only stock clocks, and they charge more for feature that they don't provide. For HEDT CPUs not to be soldered is blasphemy.

HEDT and K CPUs need to be soldered. Like AMD does with their equivalents. Then you can charge on top for overclockability. Are you reading intel representatives?Quote
