    Yeah, it is stupid hot here. I really miss the Pacific Northwest weather and scenery. After living in Washington and Oregon for over 30 years this was a pretty massive change. It is slowly becoming more tolerable, but I don't think I will ever like it. I love winter and cold weather and there is no such thing as that here. At least there is no humidity to speak of, so there's that to be thankful for. But the dust is almost as miserable as the heat.

    I expected some separation and beading but not 100%. Trying to meld, with a qtip, was just pushing the few small beads around. Not too sure what happened but was not willing to repeat it so TG was the choice.

    I have used LM before with no issue so I am not sure what happened either. I can say the TX-4 binded perfectly to both the IHS and copped water block. The LM did not appear to bind at all to the water block so maybe they both need lapping.

    I have also had that happen before, a couple of different times, and couldn't figure out why. It was like it absolutely refused to stick to anything except for itself. Maybe it was a defective batch or something.

    First time it has ever happened to me but I am glad I caught the failure. I can say I remember the original application taking forever to get it to flow on the IHS, guess that should have been a hint.

    I thought my 8700K at 1.248v under loading doing 5.0Ghz stable was cherry, but this guy is showing 1.184v under load at 5.0Ghz all core on his 8086K. Holy crap that is one binned CPU.

    I think lapping the surfaces would have made it harder for the liquid metal to spread on the surface & would cause it to bead with itself even more - I speak from experience of applying the same batch of LM to both a super smooth CPU core vs spreading it thinly on a copper GPU heatsink.
    I've only ever bought one batch of Coolaboratory Liquid Ultra, and I saw the same thing, it does love to bead with itself rather than spreading - especially on a very smooth surface.

    If @TANWare used Coollaboratory Liquid metal... I would jump on Grizzly Conductonaut. CLLU ain't as before (variable batch or new resipe). Even Silicon Lottery changed it out for Conductonaut last year.
