Product information "CPU Contact Frame - Intel 1700 LT"

The Thermal Grizzly CPU Contact Frame Intel 1700 LT is the "Lite" version of the Intel 13th/14th Gen CPU Contact Frame and is manufactured by injection molding. The material used is an acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer, which has a 15 percent glass fiber content for additional stability.

The standard Integrated Loading Mechanism (ILM) has contact points located in the centre of the elongated CPU. Due to the resulting uneven contact pressure of the processor into the socket, the surface of the Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) curves concavely. As a result, the base plate of the CPU cooler rests primarily on the edges of the IHS, so that the thermal "hotspot" in the middle of the CPU is not optimally covered.

The CPU Contact Frame Intel 1700 LT has a special inner contour to shift the contact pressure from the centre of the CPU to the edges during assembly. This avoids the concave curvature of the IHS. This results in CPU coolers resting better on the processor and a larger contact surface to dissipate the CPU's waste heat.

The installation of the Contact Frame is very simple and takes only a few steps. Depending on the CPU cooler and the CPU used, the temperatures of the processor can be noticeably reduced.

The CPU Contact Frame Intel 1700 LT is compatible with 12th, 13th and 14th generation processors for socket LGA1700. In addition, the frame is only compatible with CPUs whose Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) has been ground down by no more than 0.2 millimetres. When mounting, make sure that there are no electronic components under the frame. This is especially important for mainboards with the Mini-ITX form factor.

Removing the mainboard's Integrated Loading Mechanism (ILM) may invalidate the mainboard manufacturer's warranty!
