CLU is gallium (mostly) which dissolves copper to an extent and makes a cement. It only dissolves a very tiny amount though that can be polished off without much effort.

Nickel is where I'm unsure.

Aluminum will get destroyed by CLU.

as i understood its only problem with aluminium?

...yes - copper and especially copper + nickel + CL-U ...perfect

...no...unprotected aluminum and CL-U

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.

Okay, thanks.

I ordered a syringe CLU and will redo MX-4 today.

I'll have another 3570k coming soon, so I'll probably be delidding that as well.

Re-pasted the die and also fixed the PCB/IHS mount from the first install, as it looked to be pushed down when I took off the cooler.

Operated like a brain surgeon, and got temps down about -5ºC from my pre-delidded IBT run. Didn't record any exact temps for each core, but only took the average.

Atleast the improvement is definitely there, and thanks for convincing me to take another look.

Anyways, any pics of what the die->IHS looks like after a few months of CLU? Even though I'm direct die, my waterblock is nickel plated copper so it's the same thing as the IHS. I'm wondering how much of a hard time I'm going to have.

I have just used a paper towel. no clean solutions just a piece of paper towel is all..... rolleyes.gif

Hey guys, is 1g of CLP enough? I don't know how much it will take and the cheapest I found it advertised as "1 gram"

 

Edit : Nevermind, I just went with a tube of Ultra that looked a bit larger for $20

 

Edit again : I'm not sure if it came with the brush to apply the CLU or not. Does CLU always come with a brush?

Hey guys, has anyone tried placing Fujipoly thermal pads over the PCB and voltage regulators on a Haswell Chip, and has it further decreased your temps?

CLU comes with a brush yes, however, it's easier to spread using cotton buds.

Also 1g of CLU/CLP is WAY more than enough. Seriously use a tiny amount and spread it out, you'll be surprised how far this stuff goes thumb.gif

Alright, thanks.

Ill come back with my Haswell delid once the CLU gets here :D
