I'm hungover and bored so decided to go for a naked 4690K mount
Already delidded it a while ago but decided the heatspreader should be removed aswell.
The previous Grizzly paste was applied really poorly as you can see, it didnt even cover all of the surface and shows some clear air bubble after-effects.
I have no clue how that happened..
I used CLU between the IHS and the waterblock
No results yet as I have to do some proper testing and im still busy removing air bubbles from my custom loop.
No clue how this happenend, this has to be the worst thermal paste application ever.
Do you have a delid guard? You're mounting right on the die with just the heatsink pressure on the chip? Wow, sounds risky applying that much pressure right on the chip...
