I'm tempted to delid my 3770k... Mostly because my temps are pretty bad for what I'm using. Okay, might as well get the Liquid Pro..
And since you got the watercooling already, I'd go direct-die. Well, depending on your mounting system.

See above. To use block directly, you need to remove mounting bracket on the board though. 3 hex screws, no big deal.
YOU MUST USE collab Pro though, or don't bother.
Putting IHS back on top, with coollab pro between IHS and die works really well too though, and is much simpler to manage. The only issue is that IHS will slide on die when you close moutnign bracket, so you need to offset it when you place it.
