I've only have experience with one delidding (mine) but when I first did it all I had was MX4 so I did both MX4. I had to wait 10 days for my CLP to arrive (FrozenCPU was out of stock on CLU at the time). My experience was delidding dropped about 10C and changing the MX4 to CLP dropped about another 10C. So I felt it was an important part of the delidding process.
When you do all the reading from people's testimonials and just the statistics of CLP/CLU it's hard to say the difference is not significant.
To the original poster.... I had to order out of country to get mine because I couldn't source it in Canada but it didn't take very long to find an international source.Edited by Chillin - 7/5/13 at 5:18pm
