How to re-attach IHS?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need to know what I can use to re-attach my IHS. Some kind of glue or...

I suppose it doesn't matter what you use. The connection area is not used for any heat transfer. Just make sure it is non-conductive. Also, make sure you have some thermal paste on the bare CPU so the IHS will make good contact. You don't want to super glue it shut and remember you forgot the thermal paste!

You mean you removed your IHS from that 3600+ X2 and now wanna put it back?

Just use some AS5 and stick it firmly?! never did that but normally it should work ...

edit: someone was faster than me^^

haha.
Never heard of it.


There is thermal adhesive though - maybe that could work

Or perhaps just putting some thermal on the die, and gluing down the IHS ^_^.

I just put a thin layer of ASC on the core and let the pressure of the heatsink take care of the rest. That was with the stock cooler though, now that I have an Ultra-120 there is no need for an IHS

I wanted to put the IHS back on my 3700+ coz I had a clip heatsink. I lapped both sides of the IHS to copper, appliead AS5 to the CPU die, Stuck the IHS back on with a thin rim of blue tack around the edge, and then just a dod of as5 in the middle of IHS and installed the heatsink. Gave GREAT temps!

EDIT: Be aware that getting rid of the rim around the bottom of the IHS will take in the region of 1-3 hours with low grit wet and dry paper. It took me about 90 minutes to get rid of the rim!
