ok, so i got a 3770k already delidded from someone on here. when it showed up it wasn't in a clamshell and the hsf had slid around. well on the die 3 of the 4 corners are chipped. i about cried. he sent a little clu to reapply, but the syringe was empty so i just used some arctic silver came right on. well after about 3 weeks my cl pro got here and i redid it. it wouldn't boot. i tried clearing cmos, restarting a few dozen times, nothing. so i pulled the chip out cleaned off all the cl pro, and reapplied arctic silver and it comes right back on. what is the deal? i double checked when i pulled it back out and the cl was ONLY on the die, there was no extra running around shorting anything. is it cause of the chipped corners? could it be shorting the die? or is that possible? should i take it back apart and try again?
