Why glue it on again? I found to get much better and consistent results without applying any glue/silicone, here is my process: - Carefully put the CPU into the socket > just cover the CPU with the metal plate without applying any sticky stuff (all this with the mobo horizontal, obviously) - The CPU clamping bracket when closed will keep the two parts together - I then use an old Silver Arrow air cooler to exert some pressure so that no doubt remains that the two parts are in contact (it has a screw that exerts pressure in the middle section of the CPU) - After that, I use my AIO of choice... Currently using be quiet! 360mm AIOs with the Corsair RGB Fans. And that's that. Oh, be very careful while applying the varnish... You don't want to let it get too high and impede the perfect contact between the surfaces of the CPU. Any thoughts on not using anything to glue the two parts together and just letting the CPU socket metal thing do it for you? Cheers.

I would replace heat spreader with custom one made out of copper. I would not touch that black glue Intel had there and I would not use liquid metal, so many things can go wrong with it. I would use regular good thermal paste so you are safe if it touches capacitors and what not. Then I would put copper heat spreader back and glue it by applying glue compounds in the corners and use relid too to sit there for two hours and that should do it. Rockit has nice tools and what not. For Skylake X you have to do it, that shit cannot be cooled down easy...reaches 90+ C in no time which is fucked up.

A paper mask won't help at all for breathing in the sealant. It's not particles. You're probably fine without a mask, but if you're going to recommend one, at least recommend one with a real filter.

Steve is right... The BEST way to re-seal.... if you must, is to use a very light corners application and clamp in the socket. Using the delid tool pushing down in the center can cause a slight warping of the IHS that thins the interface while curing but allows the seal interfaces to cure thicker... When you unclamp, the thermal interface actually comes apart and becomes thicker and potentially voids due to squeeze out. USE THE SOCKET to cure sealer. Then the interface will stay the same through insertion/removal (repeated). BTW.... there is no excuse for NOT completely cleaning off old sealer and then triple cleaning the entire CPU and IHS with appropriate solvents to make sure they are clean. THEN, completely clean and reset up your workbench with an eye toward NOT having any contaminant particles around that might get into the thermal interface areas. THEN, you can apply your liquid metal.... then apply the corner sealant (again, if you must) and then socket clamp to cure.

Rather than "nail polish", consider buying some purpose-made "conformal coating" specifically formulated for coating electronic components and covering PCB material. This stuff that I will link after has a UV reactance that allows checking for full coverage after cure: http://www.amazon.com/MG-Chemicals-Silicone-Modified-Conformal/dp/B07BSK5S7B That way, you can use a UV light (even one in your case) to check and see if you got coverage to protect from the liquid metal.

CLEANING OFF SILICONE: Note for folks who might still be delidding. I bought a set of "spudgers" on Amazon to assist me is opening TiVO boxes, et al. without trashing them. The package had tons of different ones, SEVERAL of which were IDEAL for removing dried silicone sealant from delidded CPUs... They are hard plastic and have very sharp edges allowing very fine and COMPLETE removal without solvents (with patience). The pkg was cheap... like less than $8. I use the tools in it ALL the time. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01F52ZPBQ

Dude, you need to discover Kon-form. Delid, clean, mask the die, spar conformal coating on chip. While the coat is wet, remove the mask, add TIM, reseat the IHS, and the Kon-form will act as a seal and glue to hold the IHS on. Sorry, I forgot to mention that the conformal coating protects the components from the electrically conductive liquid metal and from the heat produced by the die.

Do not forget about the deterioration of Intel's compounds. I have several extra 2500k's and 3570k's. They commonly end up in lab builds, and with minimal difference in overclock ceiling, I'd grab a 2500k for max freq, and a 3570k if I really needed the pcie 3.0 bandwidth. I really needed both for a recent storage accelerator build, so I intended to push a 3570k as far as I could. I was amazed at how the thermal ceiling had dropped over the years. I though maybe it was just that processor, so I tested a couple of others. I found that all of them had dropped about 500mhz. I delidded one just to have a look, and it was visibly apparent just how much the compound under the IHS has contracted and shrunk. So if you're an oldster like me with an accumulation of parts, you very likely have a 5ghz processor waiting to be released after delidding and lapping.

It was hitting thermal limit[90deg] an shuting dwn in assassins creed..the first one lol... so i delidded it, but instead of putting the ihs back on i sanded down the black heat sink mount on the board so i cud mount direct too the silicon....i knocked 15-20 degrees off my max temps.....SWEET!!!!

It wouldn't hurt to delid the cpu. You'd drop at least 10c off the temps assuming you do it correctly. I have a video delidding a 7820x and links to products used. I dropped 12c max and around 10 or 11c avg. The system is more enjoyable to be around since the fans don't kick in as easily.

What I learned: 1) It's ridiculously easy, if you know what you're doing (at least with Coffee Lake) 2) You should watch a tutorial or two, and not be sloppy, but that's it 3) You certainly don't need tools that cost nearly as much as the CPU 4) That being said, use a vice. Don't put anything sharp anywhere near your CPU (Linus' blade method) 5) Delidding helps, even with crap cooler. 6) Proper airflow probably helps more. Clean those filters 7) It helps, but if that couple of degrees make any difference in your setup, you are running it at a load/speed that you probably shouldn't be 8) probably not worth the lost warranty, if your CPU comes from reputable vendor

I just delidded my 7820x and made a video of it. Was pretty easy. Worst part was cleaning off the old sealant. Did watch a few videos and was not sloppy with mine. x299 needs a delidding tool though other cpu's might not. Though with the price of delidding tools compared to the price of the i7/i9 cpu's it's worth using the tool. Airflow will only get you so far when the tim is not able to transfer heat from the cpu core to the ihs. For me it was well worth it. The cpu runs cooler and even in day to day tasks I'm no longer hearing my h115i fans kicking in. Really very happy with my delidding results.

Sorry to say, but this can be done a lot better, and I do mean A LOT. I understand you don't do this professionally, but still, you're a hardware site, you should have done better in the first attempt, not to mention the second one. I sure hope the others you did are MUCH better. First one looks pretty much a hack job, second one you still use too much LM and too little common sense. Hint 1: mark the die area on the IHS, to know where to apply the LM there. Hint 2: use fine sand paper to sand the die area on the IHS, then clean the entire IHS with IPA, then apply a VERY THIN layer of LM on the die area of the IHS. There are a lot more such details to be done, but...I won't go into this. The important part is to CLEAN THE FREAKING BLACK SILICONE to begin with, no matter if you relid or not. Results that look like yours simply turns a lot of people away from de-lidding, as, naturally, people imagine that if somebody like you, who is supposed to know what they are doing and are in the hardware field, get such results, then these are probably the best results, aesthetical wise, but no, they are NOT, they are some of the worst looking, sorry. I do not mean only the look of the CPU with the IHS on, I mean the look with the IHS off as well. Yours is VERY messy. The good results will be those where you do not even notice the CPU was delided, while the great ones look actually better than factory, and performance is somewhat better then the average delided CPU. PS. Just to show you, this is my second attempt at HCC delid. http://i.imgur.com/z4jEHab.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Wpae7OE.jpg

When it comes to the testing - always save the raw log files. You can always repeat the analysis, but you cannot repeat the measurement. If you're a precision freak, you can plot the raw data against time in something like Excel and get a derivation. Derivation is basically a rate of chage and yo ucan very easily compute it by subtracting every two consecutive number, i.e. for data "60, 68, 70, 70" the derivations would be "65´8-60=8, 70-98=2, 70-70=0". (There will always be one less derivations than the data.) What does this tells you? If the derivation is positive (above 0), it means your CPU is heating up. If it's negative (below 0) it'S cooling down. The only relevant data (the steady testing mentioned in the video) is when the derivation is around 0 (it can bounce around the 0 but it shouldn't be more than one or two degrees). It's a bit of a chore, and it's not required, but it gives a data-based argument for the quality of the testing done, if you're into that.

How long does liquid metal last? Is it as long as thermal compound? When I was younger used to work at a medical company that assembled cryogenic cooling units using stirling helium coolers no bigger than a couple power supplies put together. Cooled to -200F in a couple minutes. All these people doing liquid N2, I'm kind of kicking myself for not trying to get my hands on one of those coolers then. If you could mediate the condensation it would be like constant liquid N2 without the N2. Since you wouldn't be using liquid coolant, you could go ahead and mount the board upside down and get gravity to help you drain off the moisture, seal up the area around the cpu, make a couple of drip shields perhaps and it woulda been good to go. Might have needed a 1200w supply on a 4 core and single graphics setup, but hey, it would have been sick as all get out. Prolly coulda routed a pipe or coldplate to the GPU as well.

Nail polish isnt what you should be using to seal the resisters or 500$ cpus like that, it will dry up and crack overtime and it isnt ment for heat.... They make special stuff to seal off electronics from liquids and so forth and its ment to withstand high temps.. Next time buy some.. Instead of spreading more miss information. This is one of the videos of yours i have to thumbs down. Also i work on cars, you need to be careful what RTV you use, some of that stuff can damage electronics as it emits fumic chemicals..

Thanks for another quality video! A few things I've learned with lidding, lapping and liquid metal-ing, some already covered in video. - Lapping the IHS on CPU's when delidding can improve temps when also using LM between cooler and IHS - It is possible to lap the bottom of the IHS very slightly to reduce clearance from chip to IHS and further improve temps. Could crack chip, take care, remove little, if no POST, back off cooler. - Using a small amount of silicone to reseal IHS and clamping in the socket to do so minimizes the clearance when resealing - Take great care not to allow dust or other contaminants in to the exposed liquid metal, don't leave it sitting there. - On 6700k, 7700k, 8700k, remove all factory sealant (fingernail works) - When clamping, clamp may attempt to push IHS along the CPU PCB. Beware surface components and potentially compensate by positioning IHS with offset before clamping. - Liquid metal on top of the IHS requires very flat surfaces and careful application - Apply LM to both surfaces to be mated - LM is extremely effective on the GPU chip, particularly on water, protect surrounding components though. - Brush on electrical tape is easy to use and effective at protecting surrounding components - When applied to shunt resistors on nvidia GPUs to increase power limit, the LM eventually permanently discolors the resistor and solder - I wouldn't be inclined to recover liquid metal with the sucker as the chemicals within it may have separated

maybe 5 years? so that it is no longer in warranty? I am thinking the same too. maybe 1 month of usage

Any reason you wouldnt just use conformal coating instead of nail polish?

Those are Muji cotton swabs or buds! You can find them pretty easily, heck even Amazon carries them. :3 I only know because they are one of the oddities that come from Japan and they are black Q-tips. The shaft that you hold is much sturdier than that of typical Q-tips. Hope this helps.

Was wondering about AMD Ryzen delidding, then found this: "attempting to delid said processors cost overclocking genius der8auer a grand total of 3 (three!) Ryzen 7 samples before he managed to do it without damaging the processor...AMD's Ryzen 7 IHS comes soldered to the chip.... Apparently, AMD did a pretty good job with the thermal interfaces of Ryzen 7 anyway - der8auer achieved only a 2ºC decrease...." http://www.techpowerup.com/231401/you-really-shouldnt-delid-amds-ryzen-7-cpus

Still don't understand why people risk hundreds of dollars for 5-15 more fps and half the life span on their electronics which in the end doesn't benefit them anyways because they are using a 60hz monitor. Btw I've worked with that liquid metal a couple of times and I'm about 75% positive you put too much on there and that cpu will short out in 2 weeks to 2 months when it finds its way down your wafer board to them resistors. It's great thermal paste but if it's not completely flat and all the way to the edge it's going to squish out with the pressure and heat will liquidize it to a runny metal. The smart thing to do rather than running your pc slowly into ground and losing performance every 6 months due to the degradation your doing to the silicon would be to invest a couple hundred dollars into a good line conditioner/surge or a psu line conditioner for a few hundred as you will never know how many times you get wave clippings from power draws which ruin your electronics and don't let them perform as good as they should from the get go. I never knew how much it effected not only my computer but all my other electronics until I bought a $160 trip lite which first of all informed me with diagnostic lights that my old house didn't have a proper ground on the line that supplies all my upstairs outlets and the best thing for getting the most out of any piece of electronics whether it's a can opener, car amp, home computer is a good power source and a even better ground. That improved my system stability, ran cooler temps and got higher oc frequencies just by fixing my houses grounding issue as back in the day they didn't use the common 3 wire power wire as it was just a 2 wire hot/neatral in a for retardant paperish wrap. On top of that even though my ac is on a different line and breaker than the rest of my electronics i never knew i was getting such bad per drops aka brown outs as every time my window air conditioner kicks in my line conditioner clicks away informing me a draw or surge is occurring while providing a steady 120v through the spike in power in either direction. It's impressed me so much with my high dollar electronics that I'm going to invest in a couple more for my a/c units and common electronics. It honestly did more for my gaming than running my 1600x at a constant 4.1ghz and the fact that the cpu with the proper bios settings already boosts cores randomly past 4090(low side) on every core the way it is and keeps the temp 20 cooler while doing it has cut that 5-15 fps gain down to 1-2 fps. I now run stock clocks with an oc custom bios evga ftw 980 v1 frame locked at 60fps on 4k highest settings for rocket league and 1440p(2k) ultra everything except medium on shadows and 100-105 screen scaling and i never drop below 58 unless it's a server issue. My rig has never run better than it does now and i have held the number 1 position on firestrike against all other single 980 1600x machine, last time i checked a month or so ago i was #2 position in the i5 8600k with a single gtx 980 and number 21 on the list vs the 8700k with the single gtx 980 and i haven't even done the few easy mods to my card that would unlock my voltage, provide more power and allow me to get my card past the 1509/1531 area into the 1600/1700 territory like the 31 8700k's that beat me. I got the pentiometers and the solder to bridge the shunt mods but I'm basically at the point where in gaming i wouldn't gain any performance really as my cpu isn't under heavy load/my gfx cards gpu, memory and buffer are getting to 100% and in already able to game max settings 60 fps on either 4k or 2k on all my games without dropping below 58. Firestrike when frame locked drops to a test 1 score of 55 and a test 2 of over 60 fps because I don't get to take full advantage of my memory and buffer like real games do. OCing on a cpu now days is just a gimmick. Back in the day when single thread was everything and no cpu was bigger than a dual core oc had merit but that will never be the case again as it's going to go from massive cores to quantum computing in the semi-near future as we have found out that after 3ghz the performance for every ghz frequency after that drops significantly and neither company will probably never make another 5ghz chip ever again after the next few releases as they burn off their prototypes that they already have in production due to heat vs performance gains. Just look at dx12 which was made for safer game development and homogeneous gpu integrations which is already dead in the water as they are instead shifting to more of a fair split between the cpu/gpu to handle the load instead of leaving it mostly all up to the gpu's to accomplish as the gfx card makes don't want to participate in a list cause of trying to make multiple gpu's function seamlessly with each other as the don't have the bandwidth needed to pull it off much longer and high bandwidth density ram is extremely expensive to make still

If you are serious, this is the most retarded thing someone has ever written. If this is a joke, you have a good sense of humor and you are not autistic.

Is there a way to have the delidded cpu make contact with a heatsink or do you have to put the IHS back on with better paste/liquid metal? I feel like there would be a gap where the IHS is supposed to be, plus don't the brackets hold the CPU through the IHS? How would that work?
