4.9-5GHz is a more realistic target for air. Should be attainable with a de+re-lid.

HardOCP's re-lid results:


Their sample falls just slightly short of 5GHz. It will actually do 5GHz @ 1.36V, but BSODs after two hours of stress testing.

I just wish Intel would go back to soldering the IHS of their non-HEDT CPUs.

Notably, AMD has also shifted to using thermal paste for their A-Series APUs. I wonder what they have planned for Ryzen...
