What Silicone RTV do you guys use to relid?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have tried to do a delid myself, but the silicone sealant that I'm using, seems less then ideal. Its very flexible, and having done my first delid a bit badly and have had to pull it off again to redo it, I noticied the sealant was completely impossible to deal with, compared to the stuff Intel put on it originally.

So it made me wonder, what stuff do you guys use?

I used J-B Weld RTV Red. And I only put a tiny dot of it on each corner, no need to run a line around the whole IHS.

I use 4 drops of super glue in the corners, it's disolvable with acetone (as weak as nail polish remover).

(5 delids so far)

Loctite super glue, works perfectly.

We use an industrial sealant that can't be purchased in smaller quantities.

I don't particularly get why everyone has started sealing their IHS back on after delidding. It makes sense for us, we're shipping the CPUs- but if you're doing it yourself why not just have the IHS sit free on the die held down by the socket clamp? That used to be how everyone did it.

To keep it from shifting when installing the cooler?

There may be a little shifting when lowering the socket clamp, but nothing is going to move anywhere after that point.

this... Pressure plate holds it in place fine. Offset it a little higher than normal when clamping it down since it may move down a bit when fastening, but after that good to go. You'd have to try REALLY hard to move the IHS after the clamp is down.

+1 for just letting the socket clamp hold things in place. if you put the IHS just slightly higher and sort of control it when closing the lid, it will be perfectly in place.

i've got a 4790k, 4770k, 3770k, and g3258 all delidded and held in place just like that.

I realize that the IHS isn't going anywhere once the cooler is cinched down. What I'll admit not knowing is if any shifting of the IHS while cinching down the cooler, be it slight or otherwise, would be a problem or not. It seems to me that a tiny drop of some kind of adhesive at the corners would be cheap insurance from excessive shifting (even if only for the paranoid, like me) and still allow the IHS to be easily removed should the TIM ever need refreshing.

At least it will be a long time before I need to worry about it since my next rig will be Haswell-E (those chips are soldered) and it will have to last me a long time.
