looks great bro...mmm maybe i should order some clu myself for my incoming 4930k.....
but i think youd get even better results by not spreading or using so much tim on the cpu....thats way too much...thumb.gif

Check this out: this is from the Skylake Delid thread:


There's a few things I've noticed with using CLU. You technically can't use too much (the graph above) and 2, stay away from using the brush... I just move around the tip of the syringe over the surface I want to cover till the CLU has "wetted" the surface. It's a much better method because there's a bunch of CLU that gets wasted in the brush because it gets stuck in the brush bristles.

I'm basically going from a ~10 w/mK thermal paste to a ~34 w/mK liquid metal.. I think I'll heat up the CPU and make sure the cooler is on nice and tight tonight but from the high pressure contact PK-1 to CLU I've dropped 7C.


Edit:

Here's my gaming temps. Did a good 45 minute session in BF4.

Ok guys... revive this thread a little.

I'm hoping to upgrade my entire system here pretty soon.

I received a replacement GTX970 which can easily do 1500MHz @ stock volts. My daily is 1500/8000MHz (core/memory) and my max so far is 1525MHz on the core... Haven't tried to go farther yet but I'm happy with that! thumb.gif

I'm looking to replace my dated 2500k with a shiny new i7-6700k OR possibly the new Kaby Lake CPU that should be coming out here soon. I'm currently in the process of selling off some old equipment that I used as a kid for Snowmaking at home...yes Snowmaking... So that cash should easily be enough to cover my upgrades, plus the future sale of the 2500k, ASRock Z77E-ITX board, and Samsung DDR3 memory. I'm hoping to get the 6700k upto around 4.2-4.3GHz with CLU delided, memory timing will hopefully be 3200MHz+ and I'll also be getting rid of all my SSD's to accommodate a new Sandisk X400 512GB m.2 drive in the back of the motherboard.

Stay tuned. I'd imagine it'll be a month or two before I get the main things sold and I can purchase my first round of upgrades (i7-6700k, motherboard, DDR4 memory)



I'm planning on doing some Dremel work to the case. Opening up the space for more ventilation for the PSU, making sure my 70mm fans are clear of any obstruction(which sometimes they hit and cause a clicking noise against the case, super annoying!!!), and I'll likely be adding 3M Satin Aluminum Vinyl to make it look more like a Mac in color...

Dremel is out...ready to go to town on opening up the spaces for my 70mm fans that will become permanent editions to my case. Also cutting the opening for my PSU so she can breathe easy...

Right now it looks kinda shotty... I'm going to fix that today... Then I'll keep the dark look actually since I found my brushed aluminum black vinyl... so I'll use that on the top and bottom of the case to streamline the look but also fix the extra ventilation that doesn't help my positive air flow movement throughout my case. Hopefully by sealing up the extra holes, the fans will actually do the work of blowing air through and out the case as they should. Then I should have less heat pockets in the case.

keep it coming bro..i recently saw a clip on youtbe were CLU destroyed the guys cooler base...it spread out to much and ate away at the alu part of the HS...the die/cpu part was atleast safe....

Some of these liquid metal thermal compounds(with gallium) just eat aluminum.

What thermal grizzly paste are you getting X-PREDATOR?

Well I did something super stupid last night...

I cut the corner completely off of the BOTTOM piece of plastic covering and not the TOP piece...!!!! AHH! So I basically just ruined a good portion of the case... So Now I've got to think of ways to fix it. Not there yet but thinking...

I was able to cut out the holes for the 70mm fans so that's taken care of. Still need to cut away the PSU area. I'll likely do that when I do my entire case overhaul since I'll want the PSU out of the case when I'm cutting the opening.

I'll be ordering the Sandisk X400 512GB m.2 SSD this weekend. Waiting for available funds from some things sold and also waiting to see if Newegg will post their sale price for it. They had a $15 off coupon awhile ago...

hi nuke...im not sure thus far...im hoping theyll send samples of each type they have...they suggested the hydronaut and kryonaut i asked them nicely if they could send samples of all their products so i can do full review on them all..

cake show a pic of the part mistakenly cut..maybe you can use clear perspex sheet or tempered glass to create something even more spectacular thumb.gif

Just kind of sitting on my upgrades right now. I'm waiting for some ebay items to sell before I get the cash to buy the 6700k, ITX board, and DDR4 memory...

New boot drive is working great! Finally have it set to where I want it for the time being. Unfortunately I can't close the case though...

Things are looking good right now! I ended up picking up a Sandisk Ultra Fit 32GB Flash Drive... I noticed its got great performance and I can use it as an on-the-go storage drive in addition to my m.2.
This thing is quite fast! USB 3.0 works great!


I need to remove all the data and reformat it. Discovered this morning its FAT32 and not NTFS...lol my bad. Hopefully that'll bring up my scores a little.
Sandisk X400 is working great! Still have over 200GB free so plenty of storage!


Benchmark scores aren't the fastest but the machine sure responds well, especially on a fresh windows 10.

Right now I'm basically waiting on something major to sell on my ebay account. Once that's sold and I have those funds, I should be clear to pick up the 6700k, motherboard and DDR4. I'm now thinking about going with 16GB memory and something like 3200 speed...

Also, longer down the road, depending how much I can sell and recoup, I might be interested in upgrading to a GTX1060 and/or a 4k monitor...
