    Naked CPU?

    Just wanted to get thought's on deliding a cpu and leaving off the IHS. I know this isn't recommended but I'm still going to do it unless thing's have changed in the past 15 year's. My first custom built rig was an Athlon XP-m 2800+ and it had no IHS so I have experience handling a naked die. Just thought I'd throw this out there incase anyone has a really strong argument.

    Another talking point: Should I go with gallium on naked die or arctic silver? I'm leaning towards gallium but I'm worried there will be no room for error or potential for an air gap.
