Delidded 8700k resealing question.

 Share

I delidded for the first time earlier today. I delidded my 8700k using Der8auers delid die mate 2. Everything went smoothly I got the stock glue off, I applied Thermal grizzly liquid metal to the die and on the IHS, I covered the exposed parts with clear nail polish, and used black gasket maker to reseal the cpu. My question is how long should I let the cpu reseal? I used the DDM2 resealing tool to clamp the IHS to the pcb perfectly. I’ve searched and seen some people let it sit for an hour and others over night. Will 8 hours be enough, because I finished the process before I left for work and it’s an 8 hour shift.

Truthfully, I wouldnt re-seal it personally. But since you did, as long as it doesnt move you should be fine. What is the curing time on the compound you used? That will tell you when its fully cured.

Most gasket makers takes a few hours to tack up to where handling isn't an issue but will take a full 24 hours to cure fully.

Well take a look at how long it says on the "black gasket maker" product you used?

Yeah, no need to reseal it IMO.  But read the instructions on the product you used to see how long it's cure time is.

I don’t like the ihs moving around so I put small dabs on the corner atleast. Isn’t a big deal with regular tim though. 

 

I do 12 hours normally more as it sits overnight and then I go to work. 

 

But like others have mentioned, it says right on the tube what should be done. But that’s also for the product in its normal use case. Shouldn’t matter how long it sits if you get it back in the cpu sockets and put pressure back on it.
