Here's my results on delidding 3770K and putting Liquid Pro between the IHS and the die
Before 4.3Ghz 1.155v*
After 4.3Ghz 1.155v* (didn't touch any settings in between)
After 4.5Ghz 1.186v* **
So before I got average temperature of 75*C across all cores. After 59.25*C. So that makes an average drop of 15.75*C across all cores while hottest core dropping an interesting 17*C.
TIM between IHS and CPU cooler is MX-2. CPU cooler is Thermalright True Spirit which has a single Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm on push configuration. Case is as it's mentioned in my signature and same for the fans. The fans were running at 100% during the tests and the ambient temperature hovered around 23-24*C
*voltages checked with multimeter from the voltage measuring points on the Gene-Z motherboard.
**Handbrake x264 encoding seems to require a tad more voltage. At 1.190v set I was getting WHEA errors and encoding stopping. At 1.195v the same and at 1.200v it just shows occasionally a WHEA error. I now stopped the encode and I'll drop it back down to 1.190v (1.186v according to my multimeter under load) and up my memory voltage because that was what I lowered after taking that screenshot. Although I did run memtest with 7.3gb load for 200% coverage and it didn't find anything. Hmm.. I'll try upping the ram voltage by 0.05v and lower the cpu voltage back down couple of notches to see what happens during Handbrake encoding..
