Delidding a skylake CPU help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

So after reading about how much of a temperature difference delidding makes I've decided to have a go at it using the following tool: http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/delid-your-cpu-with-the-delid-die-mate.html

I'm planning to use thermal grizzly conductonaut liquid metal under the IHS however since I've been out of the technology scene since 2009 I pretty much have zero knowledge on liquid metal thermal pastes other than the fact that they perform really well.

I'm aware there's a more commonly used product called CLU and was wondering if that would be a better choice than the thermal grizzly product?

Also I've read that liquid metal pastes can be difficult to remove so I'm planning to simply use thermal grizzly kryonaut between my CPU and heatsink, is this a good plan or would it be better to use a liquid metal there too?

Lastly one thing I don't understand after delidding is how you put the IHS back on after removing the glue, according to what I've read about this tool I'm buying you can use it to put the IHS back on but if there's no glue surely it won't stay on? Should I buy some kind of silicon glue or something to stick it back on?

Thanks in advance for all your help and advice on this!

That's up to you if you want to glue the IHS back onto the CPU, I haven't on my one because I don't intend on selling the CPU any time soon.

Also I ended up buying a 3D printed skylake delid tool to delid my CPU instead which ended up saving me a lot of money I only paid $9 for the 3d printed tool while using a Vice to assist popping the IHS off. But if you want lower risk you can always buy that delid die mate tool.

CLU works great but I'd wait for others to post about the thermal grizzly krayanaut. If you do intend on using CLU use it sparingly as a thin layer of CLU on top of the CPU die is enough as it will literally sit very close to the CPU die's surface once the glue gunk is removed and clean between and on the CPU and IHS.

This is probably the best in terms of pricing and delidding:

yeah, if you plan on delidding use liquid metal as benjamen50 stated. People that used pastes (most switched to liquid metal after trying pastes) typically get about 1/2 the temp drop of liquid metal, and most pastes suffer from pump out over time, ie after a month or so temps rise to worse than prior to delid.

I'm talking about using thermal grizzly conductonaut under the IHS which is a liquid metal paste, I was just curious if it was better than CLU or on the same level or what.

I'll most likely use kryonaut between the cpu and heatsink though since I don't want to permanently mark either of those surfaces and I believe the temperature difference won't be huge.

It sounds like I won't bother glueing the IHS back on though, I'm just going to let the motherboard cpu socket hold the IHS in place. Are there any potential downsides of doing this?

All of the liquid metals are mostly gallium which is 40 w/mk so likley all 3 will perform within margin of error. Rated specs on website of CLP is 80 w/mk, conductonaut 73 w/mk, and CLU 38 w/mk.

Most dont glue IHS back, just hold the ihs firmly when you put mobo clip on, otherwise it tends to make IHS slide as you clip it down.

I had a feeling that all the liquid metal pastes would be pretty much the same. Thank you so much though you've answered all my questions! I'm waiting until Wednesday for my replacement cooler to arrive then I'll delid my CPU the same day, I'll let you all know how it goes smile.gif

So my delidding tool arrived today and I've just booted up with my successfully delidded CPU (thank god I didn't kill it haha)

I'm on stock cooling right now until my replacement swiftech unit arrives tomorrow but initial impressions are shocking, I've gone from ~85c x264 stress test loads with a slight overclock to 3.9 ghz to 62c load, that's a 23c drop which is a lot more than I was expecting! Needless to say I'm very happy about these results and glad I went through the effort of doing this procedure.

I'm also very happy with the conductonaut paste, it's clearly doing a good job and I'm glad I managed to apply it well!
