Kinda sucks we have to delid in order to OC with decent temps. Damn you intel =*(.
Considering waiting for Ivy-E or just nabbing a 4770k with a Maximus board once released. But let me get this straight...Been reading around constantly. If I do indeed go through with this, plan to use the hammer vice method. Clean off the residue from the IHS/PCB with a credit card and clean the IHS/CPU with 100% Isopropyl aclohol with a cue-tip. Once I've done that, place Arctic mx4 to cover the exposed circuitry here? How much would I actually have to put on? Enough to coat it and make sure there is no exposed contact? Or?
after the mx4 cover up....Apply Liquid pro directly on die with cue-tip as well as the bottom of the IHS that makes contact with the cpu die.....
Does that pretty much cover it or am I missing anything? Not new to oc'ing, but this will be my first delid....Bit worried I might screw it up, which Is why I don't want to do the razer blade method...lol.Edited by Kamrooz - 6/3/13 at 2:04pm
