No problem, no offense taken.

cover delidding. Like I have said, there is a way to have Intel replace it even though it is dead. All you need is a black glue from your local hardware store and a Q-tip and you're ready to send it back to Intel.
Glue: Black Epoxy Adhesive or anything to that effect
Apply a tiny dot in each side a bit closer to the die vs the sides. Use a Q-tip to spread it out thinly and apply IHS. Make sure NONE of the glue show because Intel will find out you did do this if you have glue sticking out.

Screw the specs that the companies' Head of Advertising put.

How long does it take for First Class International to arrive to their International Destination? Trying to send this package to a friend, but I don't want to spend too much. What's the time-frame? Like 5 - 10 days?
It takes up to 3 weeks, normally 2 weeks.

Basically, I removed everything tht intel had just thrown together, and applied the LU TIM to the top of the die(completely) and the the underside of the IHS(completely). The. Locked it in, spread the LU on the top of the IHS and also the CPU block. So, any who, I think it's covered, I made sure there was no back glue left sep the IHS from the chip, and I'm using the Rex TIM in die. Any thoughts?
Sounds like too much tim, have you tried direct die cooling with your wb?

Im playing with the idea in my head to do this to my 2500k for the heck of it
Your ihs is soldered to the die, it's gonna be hard to do it.
