Aqua Computer and Rockit Delidding Tools tested on Core i7-7700K

Intel has within the past few years moved from solder to thermal grease as the thermal interface material (TIM) between its mainstream SKU CPU dies and the integrated heatspreader (IHS). 
This, along with a higher density of transistors on the CPU die as die shrinks continued to happen, has resulted in a larger bottleneck to heat transfer from the CPU die to the IHS, which in turn limits the amount of heat transfer from the IHS to the CPU cooler/waterblock/pot being used.
 Lowering said bottleneck would result in the thermal equilibrium of the CPU core/package shifting towards a lower value, and with fan curves set to spin faster as per CPU temperatures, a lower CPU temperature would lower fan noise, and ultimately your computer's.
 The potential for a quieter system alone has resulted in more people getting involved in de-lidding their CPUs to do so.
