If you delidded your LGA 1151 the chances are you are overclocking and are looking for even more efficient ways to move heat away from your processor.  [H]ard|OCP just took a look at a unique new prototype from Ncore that might be the solution you are looking for.  The waterblock lacks a mounting frame, sitting directly on top of the CPU socket and using the socket locking mechanism to secure it to your processor.  A KickStarter for this cooler will begin on April 1st, for now you can check out the video showing you how the cooler mounts as well as a teardown.

"Ncore is a prototype water block that has made its way to us for testing, and it is interesting enough for use to give it some test bench time. This V1 model of the Ncore uses the LGA 1151 socket to mount it to your delidded Intel processor. This block is tiny compared to almost any other air or water cooler on the market. Let's see what it is about."

Is this a joke?

Do LGA1151 motherboards all come with a back plate that secures the socket?

Good I guess if you are the one in 20,000 doing a steampunk style build...
