    Thanks man !!
    Also.. does anyone have a proper shimming guide ? Or know for sure what size shim for CPU is needed for bad contact ? I went to order the bitspower ihs from ppcs and they are out of stock. But I have a butt ton of the small copper shims in hand right now. I'm thinking 4-6 of these tiny shims would fit on top of the CPU ihs . Any help is super greatly appreciated

    If you end up buying a BitsPower lid, then make sure you purchase the BitsPower Sky Lake version (not the Kaby lake) because the Skylake version is 1mm thicker in height. Just make sure you lap the lid with sand paper so you will have good contact to your CPU heat sink. Check out more of Mr.Foxs videos on his YouTube channel. He certainly knows his stuff.

    I don't think you need to modify the heatsink with the Sky lake lid though IIRC.

    Sweet!!! Thanks guys !!
    I ordered the solder paste and two 42mm shims, should be a bit better than using a few 15mmX15mm shims lol

    Yes, you are correct. I should have stated that on my last post. Sorry.

    Just be careful not to damage the heat pipes, don't apply the heat for any longer than needed.

    I have the infared thermometer, and some heat probes (somewhere on the probes lol). Just as soon as I get home from work tonight I will be giving this a shot. HOPEFULLY getting out on time today.
