AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors have been criticized for their integrated heatsink (IHS) design and how it doesn’t help thermals – but there’s a way around this apparently, one that will ensure the chips run a little cooler. However, this is definitely it’s not something we recommend the average user should try (not that they’re equipped anyway).

Because? Well, because it involves taking a shiny new Zen 4 processor and exposing it to a grinding tool. Yes, the solution to thick IHS for this Ryzen generation – we’ll discuss why it’s beefier later – is to simply make it thinner by grinding it down.
