Spent most of the night swapping out IC Diamond 24 TIM for Liquid Pro TIM on my bare die NO IHS 3570k.
I tried using some Thermal pad around the die on the PCB with the Liquid Pro but I couldn't get the right spacing and my CPU would not post.
So I removed the thermal pad and still would not post.
Messed around with my mount for a few hours and I kept getting error 55 on my MB LED display.
I finally got a snug fit and was able to boot up but my temps are still not that great. My 3rd core is hotter than it has ever been. So I am going to have to redo this mount after I get some rest later on this weekend.
So far from what I am seeing Liquid Pro requires a nearly perfect mount to work right while the IC Diamond was more forgiving on the mount.
Screen shots of my temps so far.
Before with IC Diamond.
With Liquid Pro
My 3rd core has never been so hot so I think I may have a bubble in that area. I'm going to let it run prime95 for a few hours to see if the temps settle down. Probably going to have to remount.
IC Diamond is leading right now.
