Use of silver...

Per earlier post about the chap who had fully customized his CPU block and subsequently silver-plated it...


...there is another important item, noting that the whole thing is silver-plated, including the inside of the block that comes in contact with the cooling liquids (see small pics inside the bigger one): Silver is anti-bacterial, and as such is often used in liquid-cooled systems in some form or another to control bacterial growth - even if you started out with distilled water etc. Often, folks use a small piece of silver anchored in the reservoir. I find the approach above quite unique and 'outside the box', with additional benefits such as the anti-bacterial qualities.

As for the paste:
CLU on the die.
MX2 on the IHS

= works great.
Cleaning CLU off the PCB, was hard enough, let alone it being "printed" on the IHS over a period of time.
Personally, I would NEVER use CLU on the IHS.

MX2 is 2 yrs old and still kicking.
Will get MX4 once my MX2 runs out...in like another 2yrs time? lol

If you delid = no warranty.

So you should use CLU on both the die and IHS.

Yea I was too scared to use CLU on the IHS because I didn't want it to make marks on my block, but of course I used it on the die. I used MX4 on the IHS and everything is working great. I only noticed a 2 or 3c difference between the two so I don't really see a need to use CLU on my block.

I like how I said "I used specific measurements" to determine heights needed for direct die cooling with waterblock, and then I do this for my order:



The glue Intel applies is the wildcard. It has a min and max with a decently wide variation. I'm also not sure how it's going to work with the waterblock now forcing the package to make contact with the pins, so I just ordered all possible combinations....washers are cheap.

Also, Koolance's mounting system is superior to EK's. EK fuses the top thumb nut with the stud, so you're stuck with one height. Koolance you get a keyed screw and a thumbnut separately.
