So i delidded my i5 3570k becuase i wanted a 5ghz clock with a new waterloop im making. what i did was i removed the retaining braket aswell and tried to direct mount the cpu to my cooler. well it will turn on but it wont post if i believe thats the term its called. IT basically just keeps turning off. SO i put the heta spreader back on and it fires up and overclocks again. So whenever the heatspreader/pressure spreader is off i think its not contacting the socket evenly. Im using a artic cooling 5 rev heatsink. I plan on getting a ek waterblock with the kit for delid. But how can i make sure the pressure is applied enough to make the cpu turn on?
