Many people have had issues with the IHS shifting when applying the retention lever, disturbing the LM application and causing very high temps. Novices should not have to deal with the extra work and care (and complete messups--requiring yet another repaste) from trying to use a "floating IHS". Why not simply do things the right way the first time? Provided the original Intel silicone is completely removed, you will never have issues like this if you take the time to secure the IHS with four small dabs of RTV silicone on each corner of the IHS. Then you just clamp it with the relid kit and let it sit two to three hours (you "can" try one hour if you're in a hurry but i wouldn't recommend it).

Not only does the 4 dab method secure the IHS enough, it also makes delidding again possible -with your fingernails-, provided you used the minimum amount possible. Less is more.
Much easier to just sit the delidded CPU into the socket. Apply liquid metal and then sit the IHS onto the CPU and lower the lever. Don't have to worry about having to re-lid if they add too much silicone.

Yup, DD is the way to go! I went DD with my 9900k I modded. (I cleaned up the board around the socket dw)

My 7900X only has liquid metal.
I second this! No need for any adhesive, just carefully put it in the socket and clamp it down.

...Or DD of course, DD is always better.
