Delidded CPU - Issues - No Post But Was Working

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, I delidded my CPU last week and have had some issues. 3570k on a Sabertooth Z77 with 2x4gb Corsair RAM.

I delidded my 3570k (razor method) and upon reinstallation, I got no post. The RAM Post-LED was solid red (which meant error). Usually during post the LED just turns on, then off, no issues here, moving on... But it was solid red. I put each RAM module in each DIMM slot to try and find out if the sticks had screwed up. That didn't fix the issue. I gave up.

A few days later I pull out the PC again in the hopes of finding some sort of scratch or something that I had missed whilst delidding. There was one in the top-right corner, not very deep, about 2mm long. At this stage I had not removed the excess black glue on the PCB that held on the IHS (couldn't have been bothered). I reinstalled the CPU and cooler in a last-ditch attempt to get the thing working.

Hey Presto! It booted! I was astonished! It ran smooth, stable and around 5C cooler, though it was a dodgy reseat and TIM application. It ran fine all weekend. Both RAM modules were recognised and was all good. Tested with AIDA64.

Today I turned it on. It worked no worries. So I decided I'll pull the CPU out and get all of that black glue off because I had heard it can give the IHS better contact with the die and to reseat the CPU cooler. But after reinstallation, it wouldn't boot. The same issue as before. That darn RAM Post-LED. Solid red, again. I don't know what's gone wrong. It worked fine before, so I know that the CPU is capable of running at 4.2Ghz under load for as long as needed. It'll run just fine, but for some reason, this reinstallation has reinstigated the old issue.

Does anyone know what I've done wrong or what is going on? I've tried adding as much detail as possible. I really don't want to spend another $260AUD on another CPU when I'm certain that this one is capable of running with the delid. This CPU WORKS but for some reason only when it wants to. Nothing else is wrong with the system. I'll post specs if interested.

I'm struggling to work out this out. Bipolar POS.

Thanks guys.

...might want to check with Valgaur who runs the delid thread

I assume your first time with the razor method judging from the scratch?
I had a similar experience on my first delid, except my chip can only run my ram in single channel otherwise, endless reset cycle....eventually it stopped working and was in a infinite reset loop.

Will do. smile.gif Is there a chance my TIM is the issue? I'm using Noctua NT-H1 and everyone on the delid thread seems to be using Coollaboratory Liquid Pro. Possiblility that the TIM is doing something?
