    Well don't use too much LM which would cause it to slip out of the surface.
    For starters try Kryonaut or Phobya and you'll straightaway see the difference and these aren't conductive.

    Did you apply the microcode patch yet? Its better to hold off the update because @Raidriar AW just died after update.

    I use Céramique 2 to protect against pump-out myself.

    That's the stuff.
    It's not electrically conductive and also designed to withstand high temperatures.

    Doesn't kryonaut function similarly? But in terms of cost, AS ceramique 2 is way cheaper than TGK.

    True, and if you already have extra of that on hand that would work equally well, but since I'm only using a very light coat on any exposed metal bits directly near the die I decided to use something that was slightly cheaper and easier to spread.

    Here is an example from a recent delid:
