Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra vs Liquid Pro vs Phobya Liquid Metal - Page 26

post #251 of 260
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.

I researched this stuff before using it but I guess I missed the staining part.. I am doing a cpu upgrade and only had this thing running for about 2 months. There are a few spot that won't come off on the block and die. I am running a ek supremacy block on a naked cpu. The spots look worse on the block.

I don't care about the spots, I am just wondering what this stuff will do long term since its only been 2 months.. And long term on a naked cpu. Is it going to break down the die? Eh.. also using it on my two 780 ti..

I'm wondering as well of long term effects of liquid pro. I was surprised to find it in stock at my local microcenter ($13) so I grabbed the last pack. I have now heard of one case were it kind of bonds to the copper of coolers and messed up the base; the member said it messed up his h100 so Im starting to second guess it. I ended up using it on my 2700k with a 212evo and its now day 2. Once my swiftech h220 gets back from rma I was planning on using it on that but am not too sure now. I actually loved how easily it applied and like the concept of how thin of a coat you need with it.

Considering how uneven the 212evo was I needed to apply it to both the cpu and the cooler side to get normal temps. Since I only have like 4-5 days using the evo (2 with liquid pro now) I dont really have a good baseline to compare with. Really Im just concerned about damaging my h220 when I get it back.
