I just lapped the IHS on my FX 8350, and I used wetted sand paper, is the IHS sealed all the way around? I can see what looks like a small opening in the rubber sealant. I might just run a heat gun over it for a bit just in case, but does anyone know if the IHS is completely sealed? Thanks in advance!
I didn't. I saw the video where K|NGP|N squirted a ton of grease in his hole and decided against it. There was some TIM caked in the hole after I was done lapping, but I cleaned it out, and sprayed some 99.9% ISO in there to help evaporate any water that might have gotten in. I hope no copper bits got in, but oh well 😎 This is hitting 5.2 or dying anyway, so YOLO.
