Yeah that's well and good, but a TIM doesn't last forever and you will, eventually, want to refresh it sometime down the line, no? I heard as frequently as twice a year. Unless I'm wrong here, there's going to be some use-case where a customer might want to lift the IHS and re-TIM their die right?

There is no need to reapply liquid metals in my experiance. Liquid metals do harden over a long time but do not lose thermal efficiency unless the bonds crack. I have had my delidded 3770K with CLU Pro running for years without any issues and it has even been transported a few times years into its life. Solder is a solid too. wink.gif

Personally I would never mess with a liquid metal film unless I had very good reason to (suddenly worse thermals). The old ones I have opened up were always a huge pain to clean and it was done because I was changing something, not because of bad thermals.

The SL warranty is only 1 year, so if you want to reapply every year you can do so at your own discretion. On the other hand if you see a sharp increase in temperatures within that first year (indicative of a problem with the internal TIM) you would be better off contacting SL first to see what they think and returning it if deemed necessary.

Edit: However as Asmodian said, I wouldn't worry about reapplying unless there is an obvious problem.

All of the delidded cpus from silicon lottery ive owned i havent had to reapply TIM, now if you say delidded it yourself or had it done and a poor unprofessional job was done yeah your probably gonna have to change it. Id say the whole thing people saying you have to reapply it every year are the ones who either had a crappy delid done to their cpus or like to just talk out their rear end without any research like some amd fanboys do.

So does the built-in delidding include the 7700k then? I'm anticipating purchasing the 5.1ghz 7700k, but I'm not sure if I need to add a delidding option separately or not. I also see that the delidding option is still listed as $49.99 on the main page. Is that going to be lowered to the $39.99 price point soon?

Thanks!

We're in the process of transitioning all inventory over to the new testing methodology. As of now, you still would need to purchase delidding with the processor until it includes the word "delidded" in the title. Delidding price change will be the last thing to change after we finish everything else. It's just going to be a bit messy for the next week while we implement these changes.

Thanks for the info. Am I going to end up paying more if I buy a 7700k + delid now vs waiting a week? I just sold my current CPU/mobo, so I'm without hardware right now and I'd like to buy ASAP, but I'd hate to see prices drop a few days after I make a purchase.

Thanks for upping the ante. smile.gif

Will the testing methodology include something less intensive (folding / BOINC / Cinebench R15) or more power hungry things with AVX such as the latest Prime95 / OCCT Linpack?

Perhaps you could add on your site a checkbox with CLU or TG-C for the delid?
