Decapitating the processor, which means removing the heatsink and changing the material between the actual chip and the heat spreader, is an almost daily procedure for overclocking enthusiasts and enthusiasts. However, with the soldering that is now carried out by the manufacturer in high-end models from Intel and AMD, the advantages of this procedure have diminished more and more. There is also a risk of damage if you try to peel off the adhesive with a razor blade.
But even if the extra temperature is only slight, users keep trying to squeeze the last bit of performance off the processor. as well as twitter @mad!the one Ryzen 7 5800X3D (Tested by us) I cut off his head. Probably the first wizard to be beheaded for which there is at least little documentation.
At first we didn’t have any comparison values, but now we have them Submitted by the user. The Noctua NH-D14 was used with a fan and under these conditions the processor regularly reached a temperature of 90°C. The screenshot shown shows a maximum temperature of 80 ° C before this, after which it should be 70 ° C. Average values fall from 78 to 67 °C. Average and maximum hourly rates increase only slightly. The temperatures are therefore significantly lower, but this does not appear to have a significant effect on performance.
But what is under the hood is no less interesting. A third pad can also be seen on the bus PCB, where the CCD and IOD are connected, and where the second CCD will sit. However, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not have a second CCD. There is also no second CCD on the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen models with eight cores or less and the PCB rack also does not show a connection board. On the other hand, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has this. Just like the SMD components around the processor, the board is provided with a protective layer (spherical surface).
It looks as if AMD meant or used the PCB bus for a dual CCD processor here, but then it didn’t do it that way and only supplied the processor with a single CCD. Why AMD is doing this and whether the Ryzen 9 5900X3D/5950X3D is supposed to be released is unknown.
We weren’t expecting the way AMD did here from a retail product in this model. A sample with a C4 plate present, plus pre-welded and globe top would be less surprising.
