    If only you would do it straight... it kinda hurts my "premium" thing. To be fair, never delidded anything, so I have no idea how hard it is to align IHS correctly, but it looks like something what you would buy on aliexpress. Especially on b-rolls ;p

    A fiber optic laser isn't really a type of laser. It has only to do with the light's being inserted into a fiber optic cable before it's coupled with whatever you want to use it. The term is usually " fiber coupled laser," and they're usually adjustable and usually not very powerful unless you want them to be (i.e. if you pay for a model that's powerful).

    they don't need to do better cosmetically... it already costs $500 CAD last time i checked might be cheaper now. It won't ever show on your rig because of the cooler. By doing it better cosmetically and increase production cost, they won't do it. If it increase retail value because they did something cosmetically, i wouldn't want them to do it.

    just wondering why didnt you just go with a silver plating? given ya know heat transfer rate is all that matters for the face of the cap.... o.O given gold is about a 1/3rd the heat conductivity rate vs silver and is even below copper.... you actually just insulated your chip. But at least you didnt nickle plate it... which is HORRID for thermal transfer dun dun dun for all you nickle plated waterblock users...

    when gold plating the thinness allows you to see the base material underneath. this is also why gilting(mercury based gold plating) has a different color, it has a thicker layering and also the mix with the mercury has an effect.
    also purity of gold used will have an effect.

    By the way no architecture has had a completely formaly proven security (that i like to define as the concurrent existence of availability to authorized users, confidentiality of privileged information, integrity against improper system modification, correctness of service delivery)
    I have not gone througt all risc V documentation but i am not sure that they tryed to prove maximum information leakeage between domains througt covert Channel analysis am i wrong ?

    It seems like Linus has more competent people working under him, but because he wants to do everything himself he just ends up screwing shit up more often than not, and the poor bastard just has to stand there thinking to himself "I knew this was gonna happen" and "not again...". And obviously one word out of place, and Linus being the dick that he is will fire their asses.

    You did a mistake removing the nickel layer, a nickel layer is necessary when plating gold to copper, because otherwise copper ions migrate through the gold and cause it to corrode. Should have gold plated the nickel directly instead...

    It should help thermals, wouldn't engraving technically leave a trench and "increase" the totally surface area? Similar to how more fins on a heat sink helps dissipate more heat?

    Motorolla processors were Massively superior to the 808x line for avery long time. (I could emulate a pc on my atari st at 300% speed). But at some point motorolla just stopped trying and hyperpriced their chips while making tiny improvements til Intel (and later amd) caught up and pretty much annihilated them.

    The cool thing about plastidip is that even if you lay it on thick in some areas and lighter on others, it still tends to dry evenly. I noticed this happening when I plastidipped the wheels on 2016 911 Turbo

    What a TERRIBLE idea. Do not engrave a surface that is designed to function best when flat and smooth. Do not use questionably conductive, expensive materials on a surface that gets covered with a heatsink anyway. This looks cool as a showpiece. By all means, buy an older gen processor on ebay and frame it on your wall if you want, but do not recommend to Intel to make their products even more expensive.
