Techpowerup.com: It's proven: the thermal interface material (TIM) used by Intel, inside the integrated heatspreader (IHS) of its Core "Ivy Bridge" processors are behind its higher than expected load temperatures. This assertion was first made in late-April by an Overclockers.com report, and was recently put to test by Japanese tech portal PC Watch, in which an investigator carefully removed the IHS of a Core i7-3770K processor, removed the included TIM and binding grease, and replaced them with a pair of aftermarket performance TIMs, such as OCZ Freeze and Coolaboratory Liquid Pro.
A six-core, 12-thread processor with a $299 price tag, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is a great choice for midrange gaming CPUs. Out of the new Zen 3-based processors the business is offering, it has the best core count and price ratio. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X stands out when compared to the typical Intel Core i5-10600K, offering Intel serious competition (even though it comes with a little higher price tag than we're used to from Ryzens).
The ALPHACOOL Eisbaer Pro HPE Aurora 360 CPU AIO is listed at €219.98 at the time of this writing. This is a steep price but given the extensive features, wide socket compatibility with a powerful thermal paste, and 3-year warranty, one can put a hole in the wallet. I would love to see a 5-year warranty on these flagship coolers.
By presenting the Ryzen 7000 CPUs, which are highlighted by a 16-core chip with 32 threads, AMD has set out its laptop processor plan for 2023.
