Product Description

If you already assembled your gaming PCs yourself at the beginning of the 2000s, you may still remember the countless cases of defective CPUs à la AMD Athlon XP, whose silicon cores were broken off by incorrectly setting up the CPU cooler during assembly at the corners. In order to avoid such a high death rate of otherwise perfectly functioning processors, especially for less experienced users, a metal heatspreader was placed on the CPU package for subsequent CPU generations, starting with the AMD Athlon 64 and Intel Pentium III, to simplify the handling of the cooler assembly, which has since successfully protected the CPU die from damage.
This Integrated Heatspreader (IHS), which is mostly made of nickel-plated copper, forwards the waste heat of the chip to the CPU cooler and distributes the thermal energy generated during operation over a larger contact surface than that which the pure silicon itself would
provide. However, a thermal interface material (TIM) is located between heatspreader and silicon chip to connect both components, which intel has no longer made of soldering agent since the Ivy Bridge generation from 2012, but of a standard thermal compound, which also replaces the solder in all subsequent CPU series and thus severely hinders heat dissentancing and thus excessive overclocking due to its relatively low thermal conductivity.
How powerfully the CPU cooling is dimensioned does not matter here, as the heat jam is already caused inside the processor
package. So that such a CPU can be sufficiently cooled even with pronounced overclocking, courageous enthusiasts and extreme overclockers quickly separate the heatspreader with a sharp razor blade or similar utensils. However, the greatest caution is required and a lot of tact is required in order not to mutilate vital components for the CPU. Even for professional overclockers with a lot of experience, this radical method is not yet feasible without risk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Verpackung mangelhaft
Reviewed in Germany on April 7, 2021
Ich bin mir sicher das das Produkt genau das getan hätte wofür ich es gekauft habe. Leider ist die Verpackung der Bauteile nicht wirklich gut. So konnte sich der Inbusschlüssel von seinem Platz innerhalb der Verpackung auf Reisen begeben und Beschädigungen anrichten (siehe Bilder).

Auch wenn es die eigentliche Funktionsweise des Produktes nicht beeinträchtigt, kann ich für den Preis unbeschädigte Ware erwarten. Daher ziehe ich zwei Sterne ab und werde es erneut bestellen.
