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.
I ended up ordering the Rockit88 tool and some Liquid Ultra. Will be my first time delidding.
