Intel Skylake-X HCC gets delidded, still no solder

Intel didn't use solder for its first Skylake-X processors so it's probably not a big surprise that the chip giant didn't chance its mind for the higher-core count models. Now we know for sure as overclocker Der8auer got his hands on the 12-core Core i9-7920X and there's zero sign of any solder.

In his Facebook post, Der8auer confirms the upcoming 12 to 18 core Skylake-X processors are compatible with his Delid-Die-Mate-X tool. While not recommended for average enthusiasts, extreme overclockers use this practice to achieve better thermals and higher overclocks. The fact that Intel doesn't use solder is a bottleneck as the thermal interface material (TIM) used between the die and the heatspreader does not result in optimal heat dissipation.
