Thermal / Mechanical Specification and Design Guide for LGA1151 with i7-8700T



First time posting here and not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but I'm having trouble finding the Intel resources I need and any help that can be given is very much appreciated.  I'm looking for a document similar to the "Intel Core I7 Processor Family for the LGA2011-3 Socket" Thermal / Mechanical Specification and Design Guide (TMSDG) but for the LGA1151 socket with a Core i7-8700T CPU.  Is something like this available?  We're specifically looking for specs like heatsink package loading specs.  I was able to find it for other CPU/socket combos but not the i7-8700 with LGA1151.

Hi Leon,

Thank you so much for your reply.  It's much appreciated.  Yes, I found those docs on the Intel site.  They don't give the info I'm looking for.  Volume 1 starts to talk about mechanical specs on pg 134 but then it only lists "maximum static load" for the "U-processor" and "H-processor" lines.  What we are using is a i7-8700T in a LGA1151 socket.  This is a "S-processor line" judging by the table on page 134 (1151 LGA pins).  That's the one I need the maximum static load spec for.  Your help is much appreciated.
