The ASUS board comes with all accessories in the box and has been updated to the most recent BIOS as of this posting. The 8700K has been professionally delidded by me. This particular CPU has been delidded with CoolLaboratory Liquid Ultra liquid metal compound, and the lid used is a RockitCool copper lid. I have been using CoolLaboratory Liquid Ultra for all my delids and have noticed no performance differential over a year. The RockitCool lid has greater surface area compared to the stock lid, and thus transfers heat more easily. This combination of materials with a sufficient cooler such as the Noctua NH-U14, D15, or any 240mm or greater liquid cooler effectively removes the thermal limits to achieving a safe overclock. With such a cooler and the CPU running at 5GHz 1.35V, this chip almost never goes above 70C in any game and hovers around 55-60C in most games. If you push it really hard with blender or prime95 bench testing, it will get to around 80C. These are all very safe temperatures suitable for many years of use. I have also added a strip of kapton tape to the copper contacts next do the die (see pictures). This will protect them from shorting should any liquid metal happen to drip (I have never experienced this in over a year and a dozen delids, but it’s better to be safe than sorry). The lid has been sealed with two drops of super glue along the “south side” of the PCB. This will keep it from coming separated should you remove the socket while also keeping the IHS as close to the lid as possible, further aiding in keeping temperatures as low as possible. Because of this, in order to safely delid again, you will have to soften the superglue with acetone or you will risk damage to the PCB and bricking of your CPU. I will include a sheet of paper with all of this information should you decide to delid it yourself in the future.
