does anyone know if the Ryzen 3 1300X is soldered or TIM?
As I said before, all AMD CPUs use Indium solder, the APUs use TIM.
AMD only uses solder on CPUs.
that's what I thought too but I read that some lower powered ones don't? i'm hoping that that was inaccurate and that you're correct.
They use it in the 2200G and 2400G APUs, but while it does improve thermal performance, there is no real world difference. All CPUs use Indium solder, which also proved Intel dead wrong that 14nm processors can't be soldered, which they have now conceded with their new processors, showing that it was just a cheaper way of doing it.
so i'm not sure if the answer is that the 1300x does or does not still.
