CptT95Yo Dabadger, apparently there is a 4000 c14 kit of gskill trident z royal elite 2 x 8gbJust released last week actually lol
Dabadger844.7 is stable at 1.35V for you? Hoping I can get around the same, I haven't messed with it yet today because I was doing my weekly XP harvesting on mass CSGO accounts via Sandboxie (which resets Tuesday night/Wednesday morning but the servers were having issue yesterday). I am tempted to check my mount/thermal tape but I think I got a pretty good mount based on my stock (non-PBO) all-core load is 52C for R20. I know my mount on the 3900x was horrible though, look at this lol: I made sure I put more paste on the 5950X than I did on that mount, and I also made sure I tightened all 4 things as much as you possibly can... probably tighter than they need to be, but the temps are decent. Even with PBO I'm only getting in to the high 60sC load for R20. I haven't done extended temp testing yet.
steppman2 Would it be too crazy of a move for you to lap (sanding it down basically, see this link here, he stopped at 2500 grit but I'd go higher until it's a mirror) your IHS and Block? Some people are scared to do it (To be fair, with good reason, it's easy to mess up the CPU doing it) but it does work. If it's not the IHS and Block not being level then it could be the mount pressure itself or a combination of those things.
