    I guess you could sand the cpu until the ihs is gone, thus not damaging it.

    Phenom actually POSTed at 6.4Ghz but was unstable in Windows. ;-)
    Also, wtf kind of solder would they use w/o damaging the core?

    One could dremel the IHS off around the chip in order to have a free view on the chip+IHS thickness, and then sand the IHS off... But that would obviously still be a very tricky job...

    There's always some one to find out this stuff for others and it's cool of them to try it. Al though dead or not i would of tried to return it 1st though due to the 3 year warranty.

    Wouldn;t it just be easier and safer to lapp the IHS a mill or so of IHS isn;t going to make much difference to temps especially as it's soldered on (better thermal contact)

    [Edit] Pics are working again - must have just been a small server problem[/Edit]

    It was an ES so no warranty on it. By the looks of things i'll be leaving my IHS on for quite some time :p

    Thanks I've always wanted to see a dead i7.
    Is this a cherry picked CPU intel gave to ppl from XS?

    Well, if they soldered it on, there must be some way to solder it off... someone will figure out a method :)

    Yea, that silicon is pretty.

    you just need to heat it up till the solder melts
