Delidded my i9 9900k last night with the der8auer tool(Which der8auer claims is 100% impossible to kill the cpu). Cleaned it up and put it in with the der8auer oc frame so I could do direct die. I was getting error code 23 on my aorus master pro and the computer would just boot cycle it wouldnt stay on. I'm thinking a short somewhere? I tried putting back on the original socket tensioner and ihs just to see if it was the mounting pressure that was not enough from the direct die but I get the same error code too. The error code is not listed in the gigabyte manual or anywhere online. I tried only one stick of ram in the 1st and 2nd ram slot but I haven't tried the 3rd or 4th yet because I ran out of time but I will try that later today. Has anyone else had this happen before? The cpu doesn't seem like its dead because otherwise the motherboard would show the error code for the cpu and it would just stay on and not boot cycle. Also I couldn't figure out how to get all of the black silicone off of the die? I used a plastic credit card to scrape most of it off, could that be an issue too?
