IC Diomand on CPU Die? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
if clp doesn't come with a brush how do u spread it. the instructional video shows a guy with a q-tip. I don't like that for some reason. Another delid video shows a flathead screwdriver. gloves, plastic bag?

Yeah, the q-tip has to be good enough quality to not lose strands of cotton, I suppose. I've seen someone recommend foam brushes for applying make-up (the tiny ones for working around the eyes, I guess).

I use CLP for my CPU. The proper application procedure is to take a Q-tip (but I believe a small brush is actually included in the packaging) and gently spread a *small* amount of CLP onto the die/IHS until it shines like a mirror.

Be careful with it, it will bead up and flow around into places you may not want it to go, like into your motherboard. Best to apply it on a flat surface away from any other components.

I've had the same with CLU, by the way. After I was done working on the CPU, I found one or two random drops on the table. No idea how they got there. I guess it would have been pretty bad had I worked with the syringe inside the PC's case.

Yeah, I've used CLU as well, I found it's slightly more viscous and resists flow a bit better, but you still have to be careful. Every now and then I still find a little smear of it on my workbench worriedsmiley.gif
