So, I took my vice, a hammer and a piece of wood. Couple of hits later the PCB eased itself loose.
Cleaned all surfaces nicely and added a layer of MX-4 to the die, didn't look like it was soaked though after I evened it out.
Put everything back together and added another layer of MX-4 between the IHS and True Spirit 120, again, no soaking.
Ran the same IBT run, temps were around 85ºC
I've read that some TIM's need to be broken in and they only give their best after a period of time. Could this be the case? I can't think of any explanation other than this.

Usually people get about the same or less than a 10c drop with standard TIMs on the die. Order yourself some CL Ultra, and try redoing the MX-4 on the die while waiting.
I used mx-4 on die when I first delidded the 3770k before the CLU arrived, not as much temp drop as with the CLU, but there was a temp drop. I would guess either too much or not enough paste, temps should not be going up, has to be a paste/mount issue.

I am running a Corsair Carbide 300R with a Noctua NH-D14 and Corsair Dominator GT RAM. I took of the heat sinks off the ram, but I still can't mount the fan low enough mount the side panel. /facepalm. The heat spreader is too tall because it is threaded for the heat sink screws. Correction, the 140mm Corsair AF-140 side panel fans are hitting the Noctua heatsink fins, not the fan
Memtest86 for a week.

Limited to air/water, nothing under 1.4V, & delidded. Yes, it is too much to ask.
water, but not 1.4V + & not delidded
1.4V +, but not air/water, or delidded
