Our goal with the cache tweak is to increase the surface area of the cache, as we have not yet figured out a way to remove the heating element in the package. The cache logic is covered by a black capsule. This obviously traps a lot of heat, so what we are going to do here is to remove parts of it, allowing for the core logic to get some fresh air. This will increase the cooling, which in turn will increase the overclockability.

Increasing the caches performance is crucial to a sucessfull overclock or else it will bottleneck the CPU - the faster we can make the cache go, the higher we can overclock the processor.

The last picture show you the fully modded processor ready for use. But while we're at it, let's put it through our very intricate burn-in process as well.
