Thermal Grizzly's new heatspreader claimed to lower CPU temperatures by nearly 15 degrees Celsius


Recommended Posts

 

Quote

Users of Intel CPUs spanning 12th Gen to 14th Gen who dare to delid will soon be able to enjoy the cooling benefits of Thermal Grizzly's High Performance Heatspreader (HSPS) V1. Compared to Intel's stock heatspreaders, the Thermal Grizzly Intel HSPS V1 has a 207% larger surface area and is diamond-milled for an even flatter surface. But what does all of this really mean for performance?

 

According to tests done by Thermal Grizzly using a Core i9-13900KS in a custom loop liquid cooling configuration with a Watercool MO-RA3, Thermal Grizzly's Heatspreader reduces temperatures by 14.8 degrees Celsius compared to a standard CPU IHS (integrated heat spreader). This is a significant improvement, but of course, only one that can be achieved in similarly high-end cooling conditions (heatspreader replacement, liquid metal cooling, etc).

 

Delidding and water cooling are a bit above my enthusiasm level, (I still like the build and forget reliability of air cooling), but this sure seems like it belongs on ExtremeHW.

Pricey, but to be expected as it is going to be a niche low volume product.

Wonder if the writer of the Tom's Hardware article got his wires a bit crossed given contradicting info between his article and the one on Thermal Grizzly's page about the same products:

 

Captured at Tom's Hardware:

It would seem that Thermal Grizzly actually tested their High Performance Heatspreader (HSPS) V1 using an Intel Core i5-14600K (not a 13900KS, which is how the article at Tom Hardware is written).

Yes but lets see im eager to see some reviews but not sure if someone will cover this… im for sure gonna test it on my 14900k and with 2 air coolers… got the frost comander 140 and the phantom spirit evo looking forward for the results as the comander has the bigger coldplate and therefore more contact with the heatspreader… as well as its bigger - the cooler has more fins.. well curious … 🫣:excited_w00tbrows:

This does actually make a lot of sense, heat spreaders is a known bottleneck for both intel and AMD at this point, so would be nice to improve.

Just got an email from Thermal Grizzly:

 

Dear Thermal Grizzly Customer,

 

Based on recent feedback from a small number of customers, we would like to bring the following to your attention: During the installation of the Intel Mycro-Direct-Die and the Intel High Performance Heatspreader V1, it may occur that the desired cooling performance is not achieved.

 

Ensure that the optimal cooling is indeed reached. If you find that the performance does not meet your expectations, we kindly ask you to send an email to [email protected] so we can find a satisfying solution. The email should include the following information:

 

-Which cooler are you using? (if using the heatspreader)

-Which motherboard are you using?

-Which thermal paste or liquid metal are you using?

 

Photos of the components as well as before/after screenshots of the temperatures under load would help us better to judge the current situation. Our engineers are working hard to find a solution.

 

For further questions or more information, our customer service is at your disposal.

 

 

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / sincerely

What is important is they are upfront about it but I expect no less from TG/der8auer as they have always struck me as transparent.
