Ryzen 2400G de-lidded, tested with liquid metal. Was AMD right to use TIM vs solder? Amazingly...Yes!

While the temperatures do drop, it's nothing which makes any performance difference given the much higher thermal headroom of Ryzen based processors, even with the stock AMD heatsink. Under power virus testing it does, but under gaming, 10°C isn't going to cause any problems. I think the lesson here is, if you want better thermals and acoustics, ditch AMD's heatsink and go aftermarket.
