    You should really be using liquid metal with that IHS. Using thermal paste between the CPU die and the IHS give worse temperatures than just keeping the solder between the CPU and IHS (with CPUs that have STIM instead of thermal paste). That will help a lot with the core temp variance.

    He didn’t tell what he used between the die and IHS:)

    Hello everyone, I did use LM between the IHS and die just didn’t use it between the heatsink and IHS. So now that’s out of the way what do you think of the paste job?

    I used such a small amount of LM that maybe I didn’t use enough.

    It looks like uneven pressure. See my post about lapping and pressure testing here http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/clevo-overclockers-lounge.788975/page-1306#post-10560808
    You used LM both on die and IHS? This is needed. See my pressure/baking job https://imgur.com/a/2xHnNVn

    That's a lot of LM.

    Meaker@Sager The paste is MX-5. The LM is under the IHS. I posted a pic of the LM job done by the builder. I used way less than that but maybe to little. Maybe explain the 7c variance in core temp? I did bake the IHS three times with LM so I’m sure it’s saturated. But I added very little LM when I put it together

    You don't need bake IHS with LM on the outside if you use ordinary thermal paste:) And use something different/better than MX-5 if you prefer thermal paste between IHS and heatsink.

    Edit. See also the happiness with MX-5 http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...and-liquid-metal.806840/page-80#post-11123679

    I do have some thermalright TFX on hand. It’s just difficult to spread.
