ALSO. The IHS does move around after delidding right? Mine slid when clamping the CPU socket down, which I couldn't imagine was good for the CLU under there? Should I stop this and how?
I wouldnt glue the IHS back on.. you would loose temp gain that way (witch is the reason we dilid in the first place, right?) I haven't changed Mobo with my CPU, but had the IHS off 2 times without changing / repairing the TIM and temp gain of 19-20 hasnt changed
It looks like you put on quite a lot of CLU.. I would just brush over it and clean some of it off / evening it out..
Also, you didnt cover the (what do we call those?) surface mounted things, next to the core?
It can be done without protection, but if you put that much CLU on the die, the risk of getting them shorted is grater.
Clean off some of the CLU (to a thinner even layer) and maybe cover up those surface mounted suckers
Good luck and welcome to OCN!Edited by GaMbi2004 - 8/26/13 at 2:59pm
