It has to be true then. Besides, I read it on the internet. That means it's true, nobody lies on the internet. lol.

Absolutely! I heard it from a friend, I believe the friend found out from the internet, so I have no shadow of doubt that it's 100% true!

I know of a guy that removed the glue and replaced it with a shim made of paper the same thickness as the glue. He then used NT-H1 on the die and on top of the IHS. The results were almost the same as he got before de-lidding, proving that it is not the paste that is bad but the gap between the die and the IHS.

The experiment would only be conclusive if he used the same TIM that Intel used on the IHS. I did some research on gallium and found it is also a liquid metal or a main component of liquid metal compounds replacing mercury.

That's not a good quality though. Source
I've received several packages from OZ to the US and it's always been 12-15 days minimum.

@Steve/Paul, is the glue you refer to that which is on the perimeter of the IHS?

It's not soldered which is why there are temp problems with these chips. I have a really thin, sharp blade that will cut through the glue no problem. I'm then using CoolLabs Liquid Ultra between the die and the IHS and between the IHS and the H100. They sent the Liquid Ultra 8 days ago so it should be here very soon (I hope) I can't get it locally so had to order it from the US.
Who's said that was hard job to do?
