Do you guys think I can reuse the CLU that I have already applied when I take my water block off, or will I need to reapply the compound? Just curious because I am running low and it's rather expensive! It would seem if I just re-spread it around it would be fine, but knowing before will help a lot.

If you want to re-use it then make sure you wipe it off the block. Then use the brush to smooth it out over the IHS and as long as none of it is stuck to the IHS it should be good.

Sorry I forgot to mention I am running a Delided 3770k, I assume the same would apply? Just smooth out whats on the die and re-apply CLU to the water block?

You don't need to apply it to the block. If you are putting it on top of the IHS, that is sufficient

I am cooling directly from the die, don't have an IHS, think i will still be ok with just clu on the die? I've always put some on my block, guess I've been doing it wrong haha. Thank you for your help btw.

You won't gain anything by using it on the block. It's just wasting the CLU really

I'd be worried of the CLU contracting on the die and not covering it 100% any more when you put the block on it and move it around a little. That's why I think painting it onto both the die and the block might be a good idea.

it's not regular paste. it won't come off when securing the block.
