Maybe this has been answered, but I can't seem to find it What TIM did you use? Finally setup my 8700K and thinking of doing this now
Typically we use liquid metal like CLU (sub for your pref) between the die and the IHS. You could also substitute a high quality paste. And to top it off we use a quality paste between the IHS and waterblock/cooler. You could use CLU here too of course but it will dry out much sooner making eventual cleanup a pain in the ass.
