I am a big fan of Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra as a LM TIM.
Not that Conductonaut is bad but I prefer CLU.

Delidding is simple as can be with 3xxx 4xxx, 6xxx and 7xxx CPU's. I never even bothered buying a delid tool and just used the vice method with a block of wood and a towel to catch the PCB. Worked just fine and never damaged any CPU so far.

I didn't glue my IHS's back on either. Socket retention bracket will hold it just fine. Just be careful when closing the retention mechanism that the IHS doesn't shift when closing it. Don't forget to fully remove the black sealant from both the IHS and the PCB with a bank card or something similar. A knife will work but be careful not to hit the PCB.

For reference sake: I ran a 3770K @ 4.95Ghz 1.448v under a H100i and it stress loaded around 75-80c and games 60-65c ran for years like that, CLU never deteriorated.

Cars:
-Crashed: (not my fault ) '94 Nissan 100NX GA16DE (a.k.a. NX1600). Renault Laguna Phase I facelift '99 1.6 K4M. (Broke a strut and smacked a tree).
-Sold: '00 Nissan Primera P11-144 QG18DE, '97 Honda Prelude F20A4.
-Current: '03 Suzuki Ignis Sport 1.5 M15A & '03 Peugeot 206CC 2.0 RFN fully riced.
