Intel 4770K Delid and Upgrade to Water Cooling Dissapointment

post #1 of 93
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Looking for some advice or if you think this is correct. I'm new to water cooling, but have built a few pc's.
I recently upgraded to a

Intel i7 4770k processor
Asus z87 Deluxe Motherboard
and some new RAM.


When it was all put together with a Spire Thermax II Air Cooling Unit the temps were fine so I though I would overclock it to squeeze a little more out.

It managed 4.2GHz reasonably easily with temps hitting 77oC and a voltage of 1.175V. Going up to 1.25V, I could be stable but temps were hitting high 80's, then at 1.375V I got it up to 4.5GHz but temps were 99degree's C - This lasted for about 2 mins before my bottom started twitching. tongue.gif

But I had set myself a precedent - get to 4.5Ghz, so I bought a shiny new Case and water cooled system and delidded my CPU (all from info on this forum)

My new case is a Shinobi XL with a 360 rad, XSP resvr & block.
I used the razor method to delid and used the Coollaboratory Liquid pro between die and IHS and Arctic Silver 5 between the block and IHS.

Two nights to build this thing, but it looks great, the Shinobi case is large and spacious (albeit a bit flimsy), now for the TEMP TEST:

SH^T - temps are exactly the same as before, so Ive just spent £400 trying to cool this processor down and risked damaging the processor to no avail, albeit probably a backwards step -

Any ideas on what couldve gone wrong? I* aint tried re-seating the block yet, as Ive had enough for tonight - i did take my time with it and cleaned it thouroughly though. Also no temp drop from Delid, did I get a decent chip? Any thought appreciated.

Re-apply the thermal compound imo...

Ok - I'm soooo glad I said I was new to cooling...ahem biggrin.gif:D:D:D:D

I did what mindblowingj advised (nice name by the way) and removed the block to re-apply the compound. I thought I would try arctic 5 between the die and IHS see if that made a difference.

Well....I am now Prime Testing with a 4.5GHz and temps around 60 degrees. That would be approx 40 degrees down from previous set -Up....MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

And the reason for the crap temps - Wel ya know that plastic protective bitty on the cooling block, Its not very conductive is it biggrin.gif:D:D:D

All Good

hahahah I lmao with the plastic cover ^^ However did you leave AS5 on the die directly ? I have been told that it will cook onto it and may damage your die. Glad to see you got your temps lower.

Now that's funny

I wouldn't put AS5 on anything anymore.. while it is still a good paste the cure process is not worth it when compared to other great paste now available.

Thanks for the tips guys. Would you recommend do put back on the cool laboratory stuff again or get a different paste.

Cheers

Id put CLU back on imo as the AS5 will have a pump out effect over time and your temps will slowly rise back to high.

i have been using clu under sveral chips now for months and they have not budged an inch in terms of going up...thumb.gif

I agree with Clexor, definitely reapply CLP. Also, as a precaution, you may want to cover the bare capacitors near the die with something that is non-conductive and non-capacitive. I used arctic mx4. GL

OK, will reapply the CLP to the Die tonight. I have already protected the capacitors(?) on the right side of the die and it's lucky I did. The first time I opened it after aplying the CLP there was a blob of CLP sitting on top of the capacitors:o:o So they are pretty well protected with varnish.
Thanks for the tips guys
