De-Lid tool recommendations

Recommended Posts

For the 8700K is there a tool everyone here recommends?  I am looking at the Rockit 88 with Coollaboratory liquid pro.  Has anyone actually done the delid without a tool of some kind?

I make my own but have seen the Rockit 88 in use and it works just fine.  Coollaboratory liquid pro is the way to go for the IHS/die interface.  Make sure everything is clean before putting it all back together.  Enjoy!

What are you doing to the CPU when you de-lid it?

I used the Rocket 88 to delid my 8700K. It was an easy process and now my CPU is happy at 5.1GHZ on all cores, and never passes 65 degrees on full load.

You might want to consider these two products if you plan on delidding:

1) Permatex 82180 Ultra Black Max Oil Resistance

2) Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut Thermal Grease Paste

Well I use the Delid-Die-Mate 2. It's available here in the UK from OCUK. In the US from Amazon.

Re TIM... my recommendation would be Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. 

Many just allow the IHS to float, held down by the socket clamp. I reglue mine though. But if you glue, great care needs to be taken to only use a slight smear of glue, just enough to tack it in place. Too much and you defeat one of the main reasons we delid. You don't want to use too much glue and create a big gap between IHS and die and end up with the same issue you began with.

For glue, I use a slight smear on each corner of the IHS of UHU high temp silicone. The same stuff de8auer uses.

As Funk rightly said, you can use just a blade.   So much easier and faster with the tool though, the IHS literally pops off in a second or two. 

 

If you decide to just let the IHS float and not glue, I believe Hasse (Westman) and his competitive overclocking partner loosen the socket clamp screw, so that the IHS doesn't slide when you clamp it back down. Then he re-tightens the screw. If he sees this he will no doubt clarify.

not quite sure what the question is here.  I was planning to use high temp sealant to glue it back in the corners only and using a very small smear of the stuff.

Thanks everyone, I think I will go with the tool, the blade method sounds like it could be asking for trouble unless you really know what you are doing.

Wise, its lot more easy with the tool

i prefer the floating metod "not glueing back the IHS" its easy and safe 

if yoy read the Gamer Nexus and the guys competition , sometimes you not get perfect contact to the silicon , you must reseat the IHS .

no need to redelidd , only remont the cpu, you get sligtly better temps with no glue not much but mesureable.

loose the middle screw leave 2 treads and clamp it down then tight the screw.

Good luck Mark, you fix it without any problem

What do you guys use for the thermal paste between the IHS and the cooler.  I have a Corsair H115i which i think has a copper plate on it.

I use Thermal Grizzly "Kryonaut" , its good 

edit; as Martin, i was not clear we say "grizzly" for the Kryonat and "Condonaut" for condonaut , you no my eng grrr.

As I mentioned the other day...

Conductonaut between die and IHS and Kryonaut between cooler and IHS.

I use Coollabs Liquid Pro under the IHS - slightly higher thermal conductivity than Conductonaut.  That being said, I did just order Kryonaut for use on top of the IHS so I'm eager to compare that with my previous favorite paste - IC Diamond compound. Probably not much of a difference in performance but the IC Diamond is not my favorite paste to apply - so thick...
