DiGiCiDAL Yeah that's definitely overkill on the temp range... but will work perfectly fine. If your IHS reaches 250C+ the seal failing will be the least of your concerns.

I can't find the Permatex Ultra Black in my country, and I would like to ask if this will be OK to reseal the delid? - https://www.permatex.eu/product/supr...-gasket-maker/

I will use the Rockitcool kit



Would be thankful for any replies.
Should be fine as it looks like its just blue instead of black in color.

When you have expensive, valuable hardware, why not take precautions to insure that -nothing- goes wrong, when there are no drawbacks to using it?

I actually have a foam dam around my IHS right now since I have conductonaut between IHS and NH-D15, but that's almost 100% required insurance! I also have Super 33+ tape around the socket going to the edge of the IHS, to prevent LM from getting around the edge of the socket also. (the Super 33+ tape is admittedly more important--LM drips off the edge of the IHS and you're in serious trouble).



Now you might scream "paranoid delusions" but have you ever seen those posts with people complaining about thermal paste between the pins? What exactly would you do if that were liquid metal between the pins? How would you get rid of it? I'd rather not take chances.



I have foam dams on everything.

Laptop BGA CPU, Laptop MXM 1070 both LM'd,

Vega 64 and around CPU IHS. That's how I roll.

I even tried to put a foam dam under the IHS for the re-lid, but the space is too small and applies far too much separation pressure on the IHS/package so I gave that up quickly


Ok good point.

For the record, non conductive Tim in the socket pins hurts nothing. I had this happen.

I know the contact/ cooling reasons for direct mount.
Direct die mount is easily sealable with a cutout foam dam.

Yea...don’t use the razor blade method. The quicksilver is much better. It takes some time but it works.

When you polish, apply the flitz a lil at a time and wipe away as it turns black. It’ll take some elbow grease.

Imprezzion I did try direct die but then I would have to run without the plastic spacer bushings on the ML360 mount otherwise it won't reach the die.

I couldn't get the mounting pressure right easily and I have the feeling the CPU wasn't pushed into the socket deep enough as it would randomly fail to POST with CPU_LED or miss memory channels or PCI-E slots if it did boot..

Is there a retention kit for the 6xxx / 7xxx CPU's so the retention mechanism can still lock a direct die CPU into the socket properly?

I mean, I'm replacing it soon anyway, nothing wrong with a bit of direct die "suicide" OC of 5.2 GHz core @ 1.480v, 4.8Ghz cache and 3000Mhz RAM @ 12-15-15-35-400 @ 1.20v VCCIO / SA hehe. I know those settings are AVX stable but can only run it with like 5c ambients in the winter with all windows open or it will run low 90's load with a lid on it.

Hi,
You bought a binned silicon lottery 9900k didn't you or was this a retail purchased chip ?
