Removing the solder isn't the same as lapping the die.
Removing the solder doesn't exactly reduce the IHS height. To reduce the height you have to remove the Intel silicone adhesive and then relid (which is only a mm or so).
So you have to remove the original black adhesive (and preferably sand the edges of the IHS also)
