    I'm currently in talks with my seller for a replacement heatsink as soon as we settle on whether or not I'm right I'll redo the LM I might wait until my delid tool comes though and just do everything at once. Delid with CLU then CLU on the IHS then new heatsink on top of all of them! hopefully this will be happening soon depending on shipping :D

    The needle in liquid metal pro is actually really useful for getting stray drops.

    Don't let that picture scare you. That usually only happens if too much is on - more of an example of what it shouldn't look like.If you color in so the finish looks like lead pencil, you'll be fine. I'd just be extra safe and use electrical tape like I did in the picture.

    Too much paste on those inductors there which also should not be using paste at all but a pad :p

    Weirdly enough that paste made 0 contact with the heatsink. Point was to bring the gap down to as little as possible. End of the day they dont really need as much cooling as the MOSFETs.

    Jesus he messed up bad.
    First and major mistake. Assuming that that GPU shroud will protect against LM.
    There are a lot of components under that shroud.

    I cry when I see something like this. @Donald@HIDevolution and HID don't put liquid metal on the GPU, even they are good with it and do it corect. The Customers will try to do exactly the same as the reseller when they re-paste. And let the reseller take the blame if they screew up.

    There is a reason they dont do it.
    The only way to use Liquid Metal with GPU's and be safe is to remove the default shroud, cover with electrical tape and then use a shim.
