I personally LOVE this review because they used mayonnaise, chocolate, lipstick, toothpaste, butter and spray oil in it. the best one I have ever seen, none others did
Have you ever used ICD? spread method is the ONLY method that actually works best with it, period.
also try dot in middle method with CLU or CLP, LMAO, good luck ...
Yea dot method might not work too well with some of the specialty stuff like CLU/CLP, but in general it's much better than spreading.
They might have mayonnaise/chocolate/etc in their review, but their benches are terribly inaccurate so it doesn't mean anything. They also are testing stock voltages - the true heat profiles of compounds does not reveal itself until you push the higher temp ranges and powers. A Hyper 212 EVO is also going to be one of the best performing heatsinks in the world
Look, as consistent with the fact that HDT coolers outperform better coolers at lower temp ranges - they show the Hyper 212 Evo as being better than an NH-D14 (significanlty so) and Gamer Storm Assassin and Megahalems (which aren't great but still much better than 212)... When you start pushing higher temp ranges, the lower end products will fall by the wayside. Lipstick sounds okay in their benches, but if you put lipstick on a 4.5+ 1.3v+ sandy bridge your going to be sorry.
Edit: go to sidewindercomputers.com and search for liquid pro there. It's much cheaper there.
Thanks but out of stock.
why would you use a dot method with a tim , when the manual says to spread it,
why spread it, when manual says, use dot or line method
liquid pro/ultra need to be spread out, simple ..
Many companies say to use the spread method, it doesn't mean it's better. The spread method is terrible for thermal paste spreading, it's just idiot proof is all. But as I understand it CLU and other specialty pastes can't exactly be applied with dot method.
This is a message to all the delidders and future delidders!
Valgaur and I are in the middle of trying to make this club better than now. I have suggested we put another spreadsheet in the OP for people who have failed their delid, how many times they have failed, and whether they have succeeded in a different attempt.
Would this be good or something that will not appreciated? Answers would like to be given quickly so we don't waste time making something that won't help anyone.
Please do so, because I've been trying to figure out how people have failed and I can't find it through 73 pages x 100 posts...

yea at 4.4 ghz of course there's not going to be a difference if you delid...
Your also using a radial, low end cooler... being only in the 80's with basically a slightly improved stock cooler at 4.4ghz is pretty good.
It doesn't really sound like you know what you are doing, you shouldn't be making comments about how terrible delidding is if you can't do it right. Come back when you push 4.5+ ghz, 1.3v+, and get a decent tower, closed loop, or water cooling.
Also, MX-4 is not great paste. I wouldn't be surprised if the stock TIM was better. Why in the world would you use something as poor as MX-4 for a delid job. I'm getting a ton of crap just for saying I'm gonna use PK-3 instead of CLU/CLP for a delid job, and PK-3 is at least a few degrees better than MX-4.
Ok sounds like I'm going with some Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra or Pro
But which to go for?
You should go for Ultra, not Pro. I don't know why anyone would recommend pro -_-
Ultra is literally just an updated version of pro. It's just superior, it's pro but much more convenient to use and the same, if not better, performance.
