But I recommend using a relid tool to relid, making sure you remove ALL of the old intel black silicone completely, and use four very small tiny drops of the RTV in each corner of the IHS, then let it cure in the relid kit for 2 hours. That's how I do it.
Yup that's exactly what I did. I posted about my first one here https://www.overclock.net/forum/5-in...ded-8350k.html

But on this chip its just not working... and while I was getting < 60°C doing Prime 1344s now those two cores get 75-100°C no matter what I do. Been using this chip since February delidded without issue until I went to glue it.

Only theory I have is I somehow warped the IHS.
