Think it is worth running a chiller on this setup 24/7?

I would probably stick it in a small closet I have.

I think CPU should stay in original state. 
I know It's hard to look performance of Ryzen but AMD have much newer architecture and Intel didn't made such jump 10 years.

also make sure you put some clear nail polish or some liquid electrical tape on the capacitors on the chip so no lm can get on them accidentally



Got my liquid metal today. Had ran out of my old tube. 
 
Wow. 
 
What a difference I didn't think it would make that big a difference in temps. 
 
I am at 4.8ghz at 1.25v and temps aren't going over 88 in spikes and average temps are around 70 at full load in occt. Ran the test for about 40 min for now. 
 
I am getting a chiller on Friday hopefully that will help. 
 
Couple points to note in case anyone else browses this thread. 
 
Direct die + liquid metal + high mounting pressure doesn't work well. 
 
I had better luck with low mounting pressure for temps. High mounting pressure and I would have a few cores that spike. 
 
Also I used a little bit more liquid metal than compared to the videos you see when remounting the IHS I think it helps with the curve of the core. When I spread a very thin layer it didn't work well either.

Goodstuff, i would recommend picking up a rockitcool IHS to play with i got much better temps than direct die.

Holy crap, 
 
Thanks for the advice I got the rockit cool IHS and wow I igot another 15-20C drop from it. 
 
Direct Die > Chilled water = 75-85C avg temp on hottest core on load some of them even reaching 95C peaks. 
 
Rockit cool IHS > Chilled Water = Avg temp is 50-55c with the hottest cores being 60c peaks are at 74C 
 
4.9Ghz at 1.303 Vcore
Vccin: 1.875

It's weird that no one produce custom IHS with solder material on one side and when customers finish replacing thermal paste to stick custom IHS on CPU made from material with better heat transfer.
Copper example with protection for die. Than customers nicely could overprice CPU with more cores after invest in material, delid tool, custom IHS.
You buy i7-9700K and delid material instead i9-9900K, everyone happy.

Solder has worse thermal conductivity and is thicker than liquid metal application so the temps would be worse. Also the 9700k has no hyperthreading so it would never perform like a 9900k.

What do you think will cool better a chiller or a triple triple radiator with 9 fans ?
