Default IHS Removed

I removed the IHS off my processor. Should I just cut a little pad and leave a hole in the center for the chip to be exposed or what? What can I use as a shim? Has anyone done this before?

Why would you do this? You might fry or break the warenty of your CPU.

Oh no, not to worry. I used an old Intel Celeron to practice with. I tested it out but I don't have anything to match the volume of the IHS.

Should I use a Brasso'd 2007 penny with ceramique or a heat pad to place between the CPU and HSF to act as the IHS? Or would that fry my CPU?

Just apply thermal paste onto the core before installing the HSF.

But the problem is that the HSF isn't making any contact with the core. I need something to fill the gap. I was thinking a clean penny since it's almost pure copper and it's clean and it's not so thick.

Oh boy. You seriously cut off the IHS?

You've now got some copper cutting to do!

Have a look here.

Careful not to kill it.

EDIT: you can also buy some thermal pads and stack them between the CPU and the HS... though I don't know how great of contact/heat transfer that will give you. Unless you plop a huge blob of TIM between your CPU and your HS, I'm not sure I see a way of dodging the HS copper cutting.

What's the point of removing the IHS if your'e only going to replace it with another piece of metal??.....defeats the purpose.

With the IHS on, it covers the whole core up with a thick aluminum spreader. It houses the heat because only the center is being cooled. With the IHS off, you get about 5-7c's cooler, thus giving you quite a significant boos in performance and more Mhz for overclocking.

On the Diy-street forum, one of the guys that did it didn't have to do anything to the HSF, it was a TT Big Typhoon and I have a Scythe Samurai Z HSF

The only reason you get better cooling with the IHS off is because there is less between the core and the heatsink. Putting something between the core and the heatsink to "build it up" totally defeats the purpose of removing the IHS in the first place. I fact I'd be willing to bet it would make it worse.

A penny is (no offence) a stupid idea. Last time I checked pennies aren't flat....they have a design/picture on them that is raised from the surface. That will definately not work. Putting a thick layer of thermal paste or thermal pads won't be good either. Probably worse than the original IHS.

They ONLY thing you can do is cut down your heat sink so that it fits. Anything else and you might as well have left the IHS on.

I agree with einstein_314.

Using a penny will make your temps go up. A penny will have very little surface contact. Filling in gaps with thermal grease will only act as an insulator.

The goal is to have as little as possible of anything, air, thermal grease, etc.. between the contact of the heat sink and the cpu.
