jollydetalso make sure you put some clear nail polish or some liquid electrical tape on the capacitors on the chip so no lm can get on them accidentally
boingerjollydetalso make sure you put some clear nail polish or some liquid electrical tape on the capacitors on the chip so no lm can get on them accidentallyGot my liquid metal today. Had ran out of my old tube. Wow. What a difference I didn't think it would make that big a difference in temps. I am at 4.8ghz at 1.25v and temps aren't going over 88 in spikes and average temps are around 70 at full load in occt. Ran the test for about 40 min for now. I am getting a chiller on Friday hopefully that will help. Couple points to note in case anyone else browses this thread. Direct die + liquid metal + high mounting pressure doesn't work well. I had better luck with low mounting pressure for temps. High mounting pressure and I would have a few cores that spike. Also I used a little bit more liquid metal than compared to the videos you see when remounting the IHS I think it helps with the curve of the core. When I spread a very thin layer it didn't work well either.
jollydet Goodstuff, i would recommend picking up a rockitcool IHS to play with i got much better temps than direct die.
Vlada011It's weird that no one produce custom IHS with solder material on one side and when customers finish replacing thermal paste to stick custom IHS on CPU made from material with better heat transfer.Copper example with protection for die. Than customers nicely could overprice CPU with more cores after invest in material, delid tool, custom IHS.You buy i7-9700K and delid material instead i9-9900K, everyone happy.
boingerjollydet:) What do you think will cool better a chiller or a triple triple radiator with 9 fans ? Talking about koolance exc-450 vs Koolance Erm-3kuk-c
