Eurocom confirms that Intel i9-9900K and i7 9700K are soldered

Eurocom, a creator of high-end gaming and workstations laptops, has confirmed that Intel’s upcoming i9-9900K and i7-9700K will ship with a soldered IHS, allowing the company’s upcoming consumer flagships to offer better thermal performance than their predecessors. 

The company also noted that they had Intel’s new processors in-house of product testing, confirming that their motherboards required a BIOS update to support Intel’s latest Coffee Lake flagships. Without a supported BIOS file, 300 series motherboards will not post. 

The use of a solder-based thermal interface between Intel’s CPU die and IHS reverses Intel’s long-term decision to abandon solder on their mainstream desktop platforms with Ivy-bridge, creating the process of delidding amongst overclocking enthusiasts and users who demanded the coolest running and quietest systems. EUROCOM also confirmed that their Sky X9C, X7C and X4C notebooks would support both Intel’s i9-9900K and i7-9700K processors. 

 

New Intel i9-9900K and i7-9700K CPUs are coming with gold soldered TIM/IHS to the CPU die. This should help manage the temperatures of the higher-clocked CPUs and will also help with achieving higher overclocked frequencies. Our Sky “C” super-laptops are ready for 9900K /9700K .
