otherwise he would run risk of crushing the chip which some people have done.

I think I will try to glue the IHS back on to the pcb of the cpu. I do not think other de-liders generally do that but I would like to try.

I always do a cost benefit and risk analysis before doing something, seems to me the cost benefit isn't there in relation to the risk you are taking on.

Well according to that thread you posted it's the removal of the glue and therefore the change in spacing between the IHS and CPU die that is causing the temp difference.

I kind of gathered the same message, but I wouldn't doubt that changing the composition of the paste to something that better transfers heat makes a difference as well.

For $ 25 you can get the "Performance Tuning Protection Plan " of Intel, I wonder if they will replace it if you remove the IHS

I do not think they ment the plan for ripping off the heat shield ,I think it is just for overclocking the heii out of it.Unless you can put it back on and it is not noticeable.

Well the guy on that link replaced the TIM, then shimmed the IHS up the same height it was before using paper - all measured with a micrometer. Even with the new IHS it performed the same or worse (can't remember)

Currently I running prime at 4.8Ghz with 1.248v (Overnight I ran 4.8Ghz with 1.26v). Load temps are anywhere from the mid 60s to the low 70s (C). As mentioned earlier I really would like to glue the IHS back to the pcb. The issue lies with what kind of adhesive to use... any thoughts? Also do you guys think it worth investing in some Cool Labs Pro TIM?
