Yes it is very strong. When I first delidded my chip, I used CLP on the top on the die and underside of the IHS. I then sealed the IHS to the PCB with a very thin bead of Permatex, makeing sure to leave a gap at one end so the chip can "breath". I used my chip this way for about three weeks, with several remounts, testing various TIMS, before deciding to cut it open and go "direct die" mount. I used a razor to cut it open again. The stuff looks and feels almost identical to the stuff Intel uses. Your auto supply store might sell something similar. Check with them to make sure it is safe to use on metal.

MikeG,
How did you get your pcb so clean? Your pic doesn't show any glue residue.

same here, did all sides with thin layers,
but most just do 1 side, on the die, and on the ihs.,
both work well if you apply is good..


omg, maybe i should buy me a wrist strap too after looking at these pics..dang..

i had to use them back then for work, but never used one at home ..lol

How hard is it to clean CLU off the die and back of the IHS?
As I don't want to "damage" it in case I need to get it off completely.

i cant say really, im using liquid pro, and i havent cleaned mine yet,
im trying to have it under there for 5-6 months, then take it apart,
and see how i do with cleaning it all, if its that hard to clean like others say,
but some here said it wasnt that hard to clean, idk TD sorry smile.gif
next month i have the money to buy some ultra, then i know more about the cleaning part,
and pro is even harder to clean the ultra as i understand

lol, was just thinking, gallium melts when you hold it in your hand,
maybe you can do the same with the ihs, and get it of that way easy biggrin.gif

Cleaning the die is really easy, it is the metal parts that get stained. MikeG said that metal polish will take care of the stains. I am going to try that in the next couple days and post before and after pics to see what happens.

I am not sure I understand why it matters if the inside of the IHS is a little stained, it is not like we have a warrantee anymore after delidding.

I don't know if it is related to the direct die mod that I did yesterday or not. The power supply comes with a USB dongle and some monitoring software, so I want to try that first before tearing down my rig. Just one problem though, the Corsair USB dongle plugs into the USB header on the motherboard, so if the power supply shuts down, how am I supposed to monitor it? It is not like they gave me a USB plug that I can connect to my laptop and monitor it that way. Anyway, I will download the software and have a go.

GOOD NEWS!!! My power supply shutdown had nothing to do with overclocking, delidding, or direct die. I was flushing my water loop this morning with my power supply in a stand alone configuration, when my power supply shut down with a red fault light. My power supply is not currently connected to my motherboard at all. I have my power supply jumperd and the only connection to my power supply is the 12V to my D5 pump. Now the problem is to determine whether it is the pump or the power supply. Well, I am extremely happy this has nothing to do with my overclock settings, but am disappointed however, because the Corsair AX860I 80Plus Platinum is a very expensive power supply, and so is the XSPC D5 kit, both of which are only 1 month old.

In my country the custom duties are crazy.... They confiscated one order of CLU and I ordered another... this one got through! thumb.gif

Thank you for that . We have the same problem here in SA with customs and the post office. With all my re-orders and replacements sent. I have 3 CLP and 3 CLU unused on hand........ your collection made me feel ok about my lot.

I used metal cleaner to clean the CLP off the die. I used the side of a credit card to scrape the black adhesive, and then a cotton swab and IPA on the die and PCB.
