An enthusiast under the nickname Madness boasts of a successful operation to remove the cover from AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor.
After further testing we found out that scalping significantly improves chip's performance: performance increased, power consumption decreased and operating temperature decreased by 10°C.
The game Forza Horizon 5 was used as a test load.Image source: twitter.com/Madness7771The operation was not easy: you had to push the blades of a paper knife through the edge of the lid, while feeding hot air at 150-200 °C from a heat gun.
The procedure was strenuous.
Having removed the lid, the enthusiast faced a choice: to replace the factory solder or to risk and install the cooler directly on the \"bare\" crystals.
Madness chose the former - instead of solder Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut \"liquid metal\" was used.CPU readings before (left) and after (right) operationThe effort was not wasted.
Under high loads Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU showed 10°C lower temperature, slightly decreased power consumption, and clock speeds stabilized at the maximum value of 4450 MHz.
This processor does not support overclocking, although, of course, it would be interesting to see the results of overclocking tests - scalping would obviously provide a lot of room for maneuver.
