Re-lid the CPU for safe handling
– November 24, 2018
Great product, super quick shipping. – I bought this as an add on to the 1151 de-lid kit containing the copper IHS. The re-lid kit with that is specific to the Rockitcool copper IHS. This kit allows you to re-lid a stock IHS, which I find useful for de-lidding and re-lidding friend’s CPU’s. As usual, great kit and I have to say that everything I’ve ordered from Rockitcool has shipped super quick. A+ product, A+ shipping.

i5 7600k relid success, easiest ever! – After the easy delid i cleaned the die / ihs with isoprop alcohol and fibercloth completely both ihs and die and a bit around the die.
Rockits relid tool, thermal grizzly conductonaut (liquid metal) on the die and a square thin layer on the ihs and then glued a silicon rtv that can handle up to 300 degrees celcius to keep the ihs on the die, make sure you use enough force when screwing down the mid screw from the relid tool, but not “too” much.
Let it stay in the relid kit for about 20 hours (im sure less is fine aswell but a minimum of 2-3 hours depending on what your adhesive product are.
Locktites super glue gel control, a friend used it a year ago on the four corners of the ihs as shown in guide videos from rockit and when he delidded that cpu, the locktite super glue gel control took parts of the pcb itself and broke connections on the pcb so i urge you to use a silicon rtv of some kind that works on metal and plastics and has a heat tolerance.
I am supersatisfied with these products from rockit and i managed to overclock my i5 7600k to 5.0ghz on 1.42v and after 2 hours running aida64 stresstest my cpu had not gone over 47 degrees on a aircooler (cryorig R1 universal). Thermal paste used between ihs and the aircoolers plate was noctua’s nt-h1.
I highly recommend this, i had 0 experience on delidded apart from watching 10-15 youtube guides and apart from the 20 hours i let the silicone cure it only took me about 15minutes to delid-clean-apply liquid metal-relid 🙂

A Must Have! – Made reattaching the IHS a breeze. Worked flawlessly on my 7700K and a friend’s 4790K.
Between this and the delid tool you can perform the whole process in under 5 minutes with confidence.

Too easy! – It really made it easy. Bought it and received within 5 days including the weekend. I ended up doing all 3 of my CPU’S (6600k, 6700k, and 7700k).
Each cpu gained .2-.3ghz at same voltage while staying 65-76c max after 8 he stress. I glued 1 and RTV 2. I used Thermal Grizzly Con.

Product does that it is supposed to do. – This is a must have accessory to relid the CPU. My only change from the instructions posted here was that I used a small bead of Permatex Red RTV silicone to relid instead of superglue.

A must if you are de-lidding – This works perfectly and I would say it’s a must if you are de-liding as it’s ensures a perfect fit of the IHS on re-lidding and holds it in place whilst any glue or sealant is setting.

Excellent product. – Using this to re-secure the IHS is invaluable. It is very difficult to get the spacing of the IHS to as it was before the delid without this.
The quality of this and the delid tool is very good, with everything fitting together very well.
If I had to find a flaw, it was that the main part of the re-lid kit – the alignment tool, is a little difficult to attach. The clips are very tight and require a fair amount of force to get them all down. That’s it though, otherwise it’s perfect.
