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 )
Okay
Got you, either way is fine if it makes a good contact, haha

I appreciate it. Might as well just flip a coin on my decision

So here is what I have bought to get ready for installation (for anyone that does it first too)


1. Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail Polish Top Coat (is not electrically conductive and does not erode the metals like other nail polishes [according to GamersNexxus video and notes]
https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3...d-liquid-metal
Buy it here: https://www.target.com/p/sally-hanse...z/-/A-51068156

2. Rockit Delid Tool and Cooper IHS for about 4-5 degrees drop vs Intel's IHS
You can buy it here: https://rockitcool.myshopify.com/pro...s-for-lga-1150
How to use this kit: https://rockitcool.myshopify.com/blo...-new-rockit-88

3. Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut High Performance Thermal Grease - 1g (Liquid Metal)
Buy it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

4. Permatex 82180 Ultra Black Maximum Oil Resistance RTV Silicone Gasket Maker, 3.35 oz. Tube
For putting a tiny bit on the corners to seal the cpu back up.
Buy it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

5. Rubbing alcohol 91%, get this high, because it's a pain to remove thermal compound with 50% or even 70% alcohol solutions.

I used a razor, Conductonaut, cheapest colourless nail polish, a cheapest thermal resistant silicone you'll find in any building market and a pair of tongs to squeeze the silicone (put it on the original path from Intel). These CPUs are not worthy spending this much money on them xD. Also, copper IHS is an overkill for 4 cores.

If you have a Haswell chip you don't need the tool. You can push the IHS off with a vise, I've done it to 3 CPUs now with no issues.


The only thing I'd buy is the LM, the nail polish my wife had already. The custom IHS has proven it's self to be not-worth it. If you want it flat, lap it. It's a $160 CPU these days, no sense in spending half it's value making it faster becasue you'll never get that money back unless you sell the tool.
There's nothing hard about removing paste with nothing other than a paper towel. Ripe off the bulk and use any alcohol to polish it off. I don't even do that much usually, just wipe it off lol.

It's not big deal, it was 20 bucks for delid tool and copper IHS but I get you, I don't have 300+ bucks to spend, because I also would need new motherboard as well, and DDR4, while I have DDR3 32 gbs now

Do you suggest putting LM all over IHS, or just the center point at the size of the die below?

I haven't even glued the ihs on the chip.
The socket holds it and there is no reason to remove it.So since it works,I'm not messing with it and I'll propably sell it like that too.

I don't glue mine. No reason to really unless you just like removing the CPU a lot. Mine is also being sold that way. Ships to Canada Monday.

To know where to apply lm on the ihs,just apply lm at the die,and then put the ihs on.It will leave a mark and you'll have an idea as to where to apply lm there too.
