Dropped 4-5c from before delid or from CLU?

Question about Liquid pro... I just ordered some, and will be delidding when it gets here.. I am going over to the delidding forum as well, but I am curious with the Nickel Plated EK block, if I should put the Liquid Pro on the outside between the IHS and waterblock as well? I am seeing in very few places that it supposedly works wonderful with Nickel Plated Copper... Just want to see if anyone has direct input here as well.

If it's on a new motherboard there's a risk that either the old or the new temperature was imprecise, or both. Not that I don't want you to stay happy, just saying that there are so many different factors to consider when comparing TIM's and temperatures.

Did I see someone here say using CLU on DCUII 780's is good or bad?

I wanted to ask you, has anyone tried using liquid ultra or pro on a windforce x3 gtx770? I now use arctick mx2 and she hits 74C in battlefield 4 (overclocked) fans at 70%. I wanted to try and use some of liquid ultra paste. The heatsink is copper so i should be able to use it? The ultra and the pro can't be used on aluminium coolers right? Also do i get the brush for spreading with both of these TIM's?

Arctic Cooling have cooper bottoms of their heatshings (where it hit the core and where the heatpipes are inserted). So you should not having any troubles with Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra or Pro.
The brushes are included with the Ultra (2x) and the application is easier that with Pro.

If an Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo II need 70% fan speeds on GTX 770, then your case need seriously reworked airflow. Usually Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo II drop the temps to like 45 or so under load...

No aluminium in contact with Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra or Pro is a must, yes.

Do you mean on the die or on the heat spreader? There's no way would MX-4 give you better temps than Liquid Ultra

I've been having to use my very old laptop for the last few days while I wait on parts for my desktop, and I kept having heat-related issues while I played Dota 2. I figured it was probably sputtering due to dust buildup inside, so I cracked it open. There actually wasn't very much dust, but I decided to take a look at what the heatsink looked like. 'Lo and behold, the thermal paste was all dried out looking and hard as a rock. I wiped it all off with Q-tips, paper towels, and isopropyl alcohol and decided to use some leftover CLU from my desktop. Worked like a charm. I have zero heat-related issues with my laptop now and things are running WAY better.

It really surprised me how almost useless the heatsinks in my laptop is. 2 copper pipes shared between the CPU, chipset, and GPU! With only 1 fan, and it's some little 60-70mm x 6-10mm radial fan. Yikes.

Still, CLU saves the day once again. I love spreading CLU on stuff; I find it much easier to do correctly than normal pastes. CLU customer for life!
