I searched up and down, i cannot find an answer if i5 10600k can be delidded.
If you have one get a strong very thin stanley blade and go for it, isn't 10 series soldered tho or is it just the higher-end ones?
Yes it is according to this. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/cheaper-to-buy-binned-i5-10600k-than-amazon-and-newegg. It says
As the binning stats above show, the good news here is that even if you score an i5-10600K from someone other than Silicon Lottery, unless you have bad luck Brian syndrome, you can hit 4.7 GHz on your 10600K (and 4.8 GHz on two cores), which is why Silicon Lottery is able to offer such a good price. If you want the best i5-10600K, on the other hand, you'll have yourself one of the top 8% of chips that's capable of running at 5.1 GHz on all cores at once (and 5.2 GHz on two cores) for $420.
Of course, you'll have to ensure adequate cooling, but Silicon Lottery can help with that too. For an added $50, they'll delid the chip so your cooler can make direct contact with the CPU's die, which will help it run up to eight degrees colder as tested by Der8auer.
Hmm have only tested mine to 5GHZ but have kept me below 1.4v on all core
My 10700K does 5.1GHz All core at 1.375mv vcore. Temps are pretty good to with an H100i. Will hit High 70s in Aida64 after about 20 hours.
