Maybe when I have a little more money to throw around. As for right now, probably not. The last thing I want to do is ruin a brand new CPU and not have a replacement. I have a $1000 limit in the Spring, and what I have picked out for the upgrade is sitting at $800. I may leave out the SSD to get an actual computer desk, instead of the set up I have now.

Wait a week or two, there are sales on top end drives like every few days lol. I'll link you sales as they come.

If you need one this moment this would be a better buy: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?is=REG&Q=&A=details&O=productlist&sku=857319

I hope they have a similar deal for when it is time for me to order the parts. It would also be nice if the price on the motherboard would drop too, even though it is very cheap.

Colab TIM's are generally used with deliding and applied between to die and IHS. Probably why asked if you plan to delid. I personally have not come across it being used as a TIM between the IHS and heatsink/waterblock. there are alot of great pastes out there such as AS5, MX4, Shin itsu, Tuniq which i would look into all with in 1 - 2 degrees difference if applied properly. interesting tho that the H100i uses crap paste considering the stock H100 paste is similar to shin itsu and being perfectly applied works great.. thinking.gif

From what I read, some people have been replacing the compound for Arctic Silver 5 and seeing great temp differences. I may just stay with the compound that is already applied though.
