The 7700K is an absolute beast to delid!!!! I cannot believe the OC results, I haven’t seen anything like this for a long time. 5.1GHz 24/7 stable at an ambient of 40C! Checkout the comparison we have an 18C difference. It was really more than this because the core temps were so unstable before the delid that they were hitting 95C at the OC but after the delid they wouldn’t go over 70C.
