It will still last a very long time.

So go for the liquid metal and just use polish at the vrms.
I delidded my 4690 2 years ago and temps are as good as they were then.

Thank you for advice :-)

Is there a good trick how not to get bleed over while putting liquid metal on IHS? I will tape isolate after putting nail polish on, but I don't understand how to exactly measure out the spot for the liquid metal on IHS. On the die it's easy, just putting it on, but on top of IHS? How do you perfectly line up the liquid metal on top?

You don't. You smear entire area with the remaining metal on your cotton swab.

If you put the correct amount of liquid metal on the die you don't need to put more on the inside either, it's just recommended in case you don't put enough. Just wipe the left over on the cotton swap on the inside in the middle like mentioned and call it a day.

Nah, that's definitely NOT the way to do it. I have watched many professionals such as GamingNexxus and Linus, and it's very precise application for most part.

Especially for 4790k that has capacitors around the die. Last thing you want is liquid metal even over the nail polished capacitors

You protect the SMDs by using the correct amount and/or using nail polish/conformal coating. Putting liquid metal on the inside of the IHS is not necessary unless you skimp on the amount you put on the die.

You won't have any metal over capacitors - metal will not leave the IHS surface, just as it won't leave the die and it's too thin to touch them. I've got the 5775c, I've covered the IHS like I wrote previously and it's flawlessly working since june.


Also, why do you think you put the nail polish on the capacitors...

See that's what I wonder about...GamingNexxus states that you will not make enough contact with IHS and the die on application of LM just to the die, he even suggested not to seal the IHS to the chip, to create better contact (that I will NOT do...lol, too risky), but is it definitely connecting the IHS? I saw videos where people state that putting it to IHS is important and that's the best way to have excellent heat transfer.

Liquid metal is thin, you would have to put a chunky-chunk on the die then, since it's not thermal grease that is non-conductive, which you can smear with excess.

At this point...it's not that I don't believe you, but others say otherwise.

Thoughts?

You're overthinking a lot. Like, a lot of a lot. Trust the guys that did it and did not kill anything.


I've also relidded the chip with thermal silicone.

Delid, put conformal coating/nail polish on the SMDs if you're worried, liquid metal on the die, wipe the excess on the inside of the IHS or put none if you put enough, put the lid on, put a drop of super glue on each corner of the IHS. ez.

I put nail polish on my first CPU I delided and left the following dozen or so alone. I didn't put any liquid metal on the underside of the IHS outside the first. All are fine (at least that I know about, @mllrkllr88 has 3 of them now )

AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)

I take it back, you are right. Here is a video that shows him spreading it all over.

You are completely right, I am overthinking it. Being paranoid actually, since it's my only PC :-D
