i7 3770K Delid Question?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Been watching a few videos and reading about delidding a i7 3770K and have decided I am gonna give it a go thumb.gif
My question is the videos I have seen and reading online no body mentions re-gluing the IHS to PCB ? I mean isn't it better to get a sealant glue and glue it back together? Am sure just a thermal paste cannot hold it together.

I've been wondering this myself - not sure I trust myself enough to get it locked into the correct place using just the pressure clamp on the mobo.

take it from someone who has reglued it on. If you are perfect you can do it I have done it successfully but it is easier and more reliable not too. What I mean is on my first 4 delids I did good but seem to get better temps on this chip not to reglue it back on. Its is hard to get the right amount of adhesive without using too much and causing to much of a gap which is what the purpose of deliding is trying to eliminate. So I say don't once you have it in the socket slowily lower the lock above the cpu. than stick your finger through the latch and hold the IHS in place firming while locking the mechanism.

I have not reglued mine and have had no problems. Just hold the IHS in place and the locking the mechanism will keep it in place. I believe that one of the issues with IB is that the black glue raises the IHS a bit resulting in part for the increased temps. The bigger the gap between the die and IHS the thicker the layer of TIM the heat has to go through.

This is what i mean just don't feel right that the pressure clamp on the mobo is holding it together. All the delidding I have seen so far no one glued it together so that's why I wanted to know.

First put the PCB back without the IHS. Then place the IHS on top and you are sorted. I have done this plenty of times testing different TIM's .
Very easy thumb.gif Just lie the case on its side .

How does your chip OC ? I see from some posts that newer chips seem to run cooler .

it does hold it together perfectly fine trust me 99.9% of people don't reglue it. anyway usually once someone installed a cpu with there cooler and mobo they don't have to take it out again to put it in another mobo. If you have to get a new cooler the clamp will still be done and you clean the TIM off while its in the socket still, that way there is no chance of the cpu IHS sliding around

I would like to thanks everyone who replied I really appreciate it and seems like I won't be gluing anymore smile.gif

This is a new build I don't have the CPU yet was thinking of going for a i7 3930K but that might be a overkill for what am gonna be doing and that is mostly gaming, and some photo/video editing but very little. You also mentioned "newer chips" that run cooler? is there a way to tell which ones these are? like by the batch number?
post #9 of 15
You can . Search some of the threads here they will help you interpret the batch number.

Also what paste is good? I see mostly Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra is used by nearly everyone
