Xeons don’t overclock unless the chipsets now allow this. I’d love to OC my Xeon. I also like delidding and let the pros do this, but only HEDT CPUs. Xeons are quality CPUs with better thermal designs so delidding isn’t necessary. While Intel desktop and HEDT CPUs are bad ass they’re still considered consumer CPUs so corners are cut wherever possible. I bought a delidded 8086k. It was always fast enough for me but I wanted lower temps, and 43C to 39C was worth the extra dough. I use it in a 1U I’m still testing. There’s a 1U Water Cooler for CPUs, it’s not as good as a Noctua but slightly better than the best 1U HSF Combos. I’m going to try that out before this rig replaces my 4790k. Nice rig though boss and thanks for sharing tests.
