Sounds like its already gone sideways if temps are varying that greatly. The heatsink isnt making good contact anymore. Time to pull it and redo the liquid metal and reseat the ihs.

would it matter what it was relidded with i bought htis 2nd hand from a extreme ocer yrs ago. and at first temps were amazing but as time went on it crept up. the cooler im using is the NH-U12A in the corsiar 1000D i have 8 GT 120 fans up top exhausting air like mad. but im guessin this thing just cant keep up anymore, ill see what happens at default settings, when under load. then tune a nice oc in with stable voltages.

I seem to remember that some of the stuff wears out over time for TIM, but I could be wrong - never got that extreme myself.

Yeah, most liquid metal should be reapplied every year or so or temps get bad. What i should have said is the ihs and die arent making good contact anymore due to the liquid metal needing to be replaced.

WTF!? why would they go to all the trouble of delidding it only to completely fuck it up? What a meathead. Well at least they sealed it up so the tim didnt leak all over the socket and get into the pins.
And now that you know what NOT to do haha.
Dude return that shit its only $115 at amazon!
