Yeah, the whole direct die kit with plate, delid tool and liquid Mercury (and a small carrying case) was just 49.99. specifically the i9 - 9900k / 9700k / 9600K delid tool 89.

The inclusion of the liquid Mercury and the little things sold me on it. Wouldn't do this if I didn't have every single necessary tool to be as safe as possible.

On a second note, a lot of people mention using clear nail polish or liquid electrical tape to cover the smt's on the chips bare pcb. I'm wondering if people leave this nail polish on / liquid tape on or take it off after the liquid Metal application. Seems everyone recommends using liquid electrical tape, but always winds up using clear nail polish.

Seems like it could cause some weird thermal patches? Maybe I'm overthinking it.
