Indigo Xtreme™ (IX) represents a whole new approach to high-performance CPU cooling. IX is a precision Engineered Thermal Interface (ETI) that keeps CPUs a stunning 2-4C cooler than the highest performance greases or metallic thermal interface materials (TIMs) available today.
Its innovative and patented structure deploys a highly conductive Phase Change Metal Alloy (PCMA) into all the surface micro-asperities on the CPU lid and heat sink, resulting in the lowest resistance heat path. Unlike messy greases and liquid metal interface products, IX is a self-contained and sealed structure, automatically deploying the correct amount of PCMA every time.
Based upon technology for high heat flux electronics, IX sets the new standard for thermal interface performance within the PC enthusiast community. No mere TIM can compete with Indigo Xtreme’s performance.
“Advanced Phase Change Alloy for Immediate Maximum Thermal Performance”
Enerdyne has determined that the current Indigo Xtreme (IX) model for socket 2011 is
incompatible with the new Intel socket 2011-3 CPUs (5960X, 5930K, 5820K). The IHS
(CPU lid) used for the 2011-3 (Haswell-E) CPUs is significantly larger than the lid used
on 2011-0 generation CPUs. If installed, the thick, blue stiffening member on the current
IX for socket 2011 would be sandwiched between the cooler surface and CPU lid,
resulting in a total reflow failure.

Challenging at first, but worth it02-20-2014

Picked up this up for a 3970x, I was having a hard time getting good temps at first but I think it was due to the wb being fastened too tight. Once I loosened it up and I laid it on its side, gave it a slight angle so once in a liquid state it could "flow" to the other end of the block, it worked out. It was nothing less then nerve wrecking letting my cpu cook to the 90-95c for it to liquify... But once it cooled down and set, 26-27c on a 6 core cpu @ stock clocks (room temps about 70f) using a H100i (push/pull on low rpm''s), I sh4t bricks. Best temps I''ve had so far vs Arctic Silver, MX-4, and IC-Diamond.

I bought an EK CPU waterblock and this stuff came with it. As with the reviewer before me, I had a very difficult time with getting this stuff to melt properly. I followed the instructions, watched videos,etc to try to make this work. Everytime I did the reflow process, the silver would drip out the bottom of the waterblock (I made sure the case was as level as possible on its side. Taking the waterblock of I seen that it would make it around the edge of the CPU just fine, but it would completely miss the entire middle of the metal cap. I found the rest of the material to be pooled up on the cpu bracket. I dont know if its a bad design, CPU block or what, but I cant get this stuff to work. Its a great idea in my opinion, just need to go back to the drawing boards. Dont buy.
Not bad...from what I hear.09-11-2013

I have attempted to put this on 3 times and have not done it perfectly and although I get better after each time, it is frustrating. The littlest variation from the instructions will result in a failed installation. There are u tube vids now, watch them over and over! Seriously, just buy like 2 packs of 2 and save time and shipping cost. You need a level, a super flat steady surface, if your pc crashes during the install, your screwed, ect. However, if you want the temps the pros get, this is the way to go. Just be prepared to work for it.
