No, this is a really common question and most people are surprised when they run the "old standard tests" on the new CPUs. It is big change for anyone coming from Sandy Bridge era or thereabouts.

I know what you mean. I have been eyeing this CPU and was considering dismantling my current set-up for one of the very nice looking Z270 boards. But part of that analysis was that I would need to delid to make myself happy. Hard to swallow right at the start. On the other hand, this may mean you can run 5.0/1.35v and stay under 80.
