[TechPowerUp] Aqua Computer and Rockit Delidding Tools tested on Core i7-7700K - Page 2

post #11 of 59
Relative to a 50 dollar delid from a service like Silicon Lottery (and I'm sure there are others), I don't see the appeal unless you buy a new CPU every year or two.

I could buy this or a small vice for a few dollars more that will be much more helpful. And I have more uses for it then every half decade when I upgrade my CPU.

Seems like a nice enough product assuming it's idiot proof, but I have to imagine the people who not only delid but delid enough to make this worth it are few and far between.

This is very interesting, does anyone know of a company that offers a delidding service that will use Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut thermal paste and the Rockit Cool approach (Loctite Super Glue) for relidding?

I am reluctant to take the chance that I will render my cpu useless by making a mistake during this process and I do not want to risk my investment of roughly 400$, but at the same time I would love to get results similar to the author of the Tech Power Up article!

Has anyone else here had experience with delidding and relidding their cpu?

The drop in temperature definitely seems its worth the cost investment, provided that it does not destroy the cpu in the process.

Currently I'm waiting for ASUS's 1080ti Poseidon to be released and then I'm going to order it and set up a custom liquid cooling loop and I would be interested in delidding and relidding my cpu at that point as well.

Thanks OP for the post! thumb.gif

Thank you, do you know if they let you specify the thermal paste and give you a choice between the silicone and super glue for relidding?

EDIT : This is from their site

"Stock thermal paste is replaced with Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra.

Temperature improvements vary depending on processor sample and architecture. Temperatures under an overclocked load (1.3V-1.4V) will decrease anywhere from 5° to 25°C. Typical temperature improvements are listed below:

Ivy Bridge: 10°C to 25°C
Haswell: 10°C to 25°C
Devil's Canyon: 7°C to 15°C
Broadwell: 8°C to 18°C
Skylake: 8°C to 18°C
Kaby Lake: 12°C to 25°C"

Id like to find a service that will utilize the highest grade thermal paste possible as im already paying for the service as well as relinquishing the use of my computer while i wait for them to complete the service so id much prefer that they use the thermal paste suggested in the Tech Power Up article as well as use the super glue rather than the silicone for better temps.

Maybe you can email them and ask. Tell them you'll send the the liquid/paste in the package with the CPU. I don't think they'd really say no since you're putting in the money. What they list is because that's what they have in stock to use (probably buy in bulk) instead of having to buy so many variations. It's a business after all.

I would do some research on the two TIM's and see if there is enough of a difference to make it worth it.

Also, you could buy the equipment you need to do it yourself and then sell it to someone else after you do yours.

Found someone who did a test between them and the winner was Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. So if money isn't an issue, I'd go for that.

I just made a post on their suggestion thread ( found here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1547347/what-would-you-like-to-see-from-silicon-lottery/180#post_26051770) and im waiting for a reply, I made the suggestion just like you mention that we should be able to send in our own thermal paste and also have the choice about the relidding process!

Thank you so much for your helpful insight on the matter and i will look into the thermal paste comparison, as at the moment ive only had a short amount of time to do some quick research regarding which company offers the best thermal paste available!

+REP for bieng so helpful! biggrin.gif:thumb:

Using super glue is much better than RTV?

Maybe if the RTV is too thick we can apply just a dab on each corner to minimize compression of the RTV? As opposed to going all around the IHS edge.

Yes ive considered doing it myself, but i honestly have the worst luck out of anyone that i know, its so bad that before i purchase any product i take an extensive look into the wrranty and see exactaly what it covers as I usually get the one defective unit out of hundreds of thousands of units manufactured, and ive had this issues with cars ( a 2001 honda civic that went through two transmissions in less than 10k miles), computer components from cpu's to RAM and gpu's, and on and on so I'd much prefer to pay for the service as long as i am able to hold the company liable for any damages that this service may cause.

If i didn't have such horrendous luck, i would surely purchase and attempt the delidding and relidding myself.

Some people have much better luck and skill and I'm not saying that I'm not intelligent ( im currently carring a 4.0 gpa in all of my courses in college), its more so that i have **** luck. wink.gif
