AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is opened and doesn’t hit 90°C anymore
Generally speaking, few players will open the lid of AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors, because the chip is fixed on the integrated heat sink (IHS) by soldering to improve thermal conductivity. If the player acts rashly, it is easy to cause damage to the CCD core. Of course, there are many warriors who choose to do this, such as Fritzchens Fritz, an enthusiast in the Hardwareluxx community, who has taken a photo after opening the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X in the past.
Earlier, AMD launched the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. This is the first and so far the only consumer processor with 3D Vertical Cache (3D V-Cache) technology, which brings an additional 64MB of 7nm SRAM cache to the CCD, making this Zen 3 architecture processor even more powerful. The L3 cache capacity was increased from 32MB to 96MB, tripling the capacity. Since the 3D vertical cache chip is installed on the corresponding CCX, it is obviously more difficult to open the Ryzen 7 5800X3D than the ordinary AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors.
Recently, Twitter user @Madness7771 has tried to do this, and they have been successful. @Madness7771 also said that after successfully opening the cover, the core temperature of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D no longer reaches 90°C. As for what workload and under what cooling conditions this temperature is obtained, the player did not specify.But one thing is certain, that is, it will be more difficult to open the lid of the Ryzen 7000 series processors with 3D V-Cache technology in the future. Since AMD has cut out the integrated heat sink of the new Ryzen 7000 series processors to make room for capacitors, this design obviously makes it more difficult to open the processor. The integrated radiator of this Zen 4 architecture processor has been exposed on the Internet before, and it seems to be obtained by opening the cover, but the leaker did not disclose more information.
