i have a 3770k. after a delid and a liquid metal apply i got about 15-20 degrees C drop in tempretures...

i didnt bother reglueing the heat spreader back on...just let the socket on my z77 sabertooth mobo hold it there....

i am still using regular thermal paste between the cpu heatspreader and my cpu water block though....not sure how much more difference that would make.....

for note though.......i didnt really get the thing to overclock any higher afterwards it just ran cooler.....which is alway a bonus.
