The refreshed i9-7980XE (which in my opinion is one of my favourite CPU from Intel even with slightly bloated pricing), comes with soldered TIM which can transfer heat from die to IHS better but overclocking enthusiasts disappoints as the solder itself transfer lower heat than metallic thermal paste such as Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut and can complicate relidding. [Dec '19 ColdSpy]
