Cooling direct on die or not?
So I just ordered Rockit 99 delid tool, should be here tomorrow. Was thinking of running without the IHS and running the cooling direct on die/core on my 7900X.
Have any of you any experience with this? My thoughts was that the cooling would be better with direct contact. Will be using Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut liquid metal.
One potential issue would perhaps be that there will be a gap between the die and cooler without the IHS?
Thanks to all that replies.
