    How many i3-i5-i7 owners here have de-lidded their CPUs? I'm about to do mine, knowledge gained from YouTube and many other guides. For now, I'll post pre-de-lidding temps. After de-lidding, I will post results... within a few hours.

    I'll do a compilation if this catches on. For now, this is my system running Prime95 for 15 min. i5-3750k @ 4.7 Ghz. 1.39v in BIOS, 16GB Mem 2133 C9 1.65v.

    http://www.overclock.net/t/1370209/delid-3570k-without-a-razor-blade

    See his video: http://www.fnarfbargle.com/private/1...d/IMG_0081.m4v

    I tried this just now with two celeron 420s and they seperated just like his video with no marks or obvious damage to the pcb. This only takes a minute to set up as opposed to an hour of cutting with a razor blade. I haven't tested this yet on the i5 3570k but will be doing it in the next day or so. You should give this a shot because it is way way easier than using a razor blade. I have no way of testing these 420s. I have delidded 4 420s now, two by razor blade and 2 by hammer and vice. Hammer and vice is way way easier and I think its safer but I don't know if the shock of the blow can damage the chip?


    Best of luck ! :toast:

    edit: heres link to hammer+vice method http://www.fnarfbargle.com/private/130315-Delid-vid/IMG_0081.m4v

    Ha, I'm not a photographer by any means. Thanks though, I did try to make it a bit moody. :p

    There's a long story to MY de-lidding...I'll relate it later.

    I delidded with the hammer method. Its works. My temps are TERRIBLE, 32 stock idle 88. I need to reapply the thermal paste.

    WHut!?!


    For me:

    IHS is replaced, TIM is replaced with Coolaboratory Pro. 25c drop. I get 18c with just MX4 though.

    With this method, when putting bracket to closed, the IHS will slide on the chip, so you have to place it down offset before clipping in the bracket, and you need to also consider such movement when applying paste.



    Sonda5:

    removed bracket, mounted CPU block directly.


    Sonda5's way, + Coolabs, = a 35C drop for many people I have seen now, 10+. I don't quite need that big of a drop, 3570k doesn't have that high of an overall heat output.


    It's the HT chips that really benefit, of course. I just happened ot have delidded the wrong chip by mistake. I wondered why it wouldn't clock any more...thought I killed it, went to find the 3570k to make sure it wasn't the board, found the 3770K instead of the 3570k..realized I de-lidded the wrong chip...

    :banghead:

    Holy SHIT! Took me about 30 min to de-lid and apply AS5. Put dabs of silicone on corners of the IHS to hold the seat.

    65c peak after 5 mins... will post results after 15 min. DAMN!

    Wow, 13c drop in 15 minutes+ of Prime95... that is impressive!

    4.8 now... 2 mins at the 77c mark :)

    Wish the wattage had a peak value, it's been close to 80w!

    I need to drop the voltage, at 1.425 in BIOS... so here we are at 4.8 Ghz, temps lower than 4.7 Ghz at 1.39v in BIOS before de-lidding

    Going to let it run overnight.

    I still find the idea of doing this scary. Thats coming from a guy who washed his motherboard to remove flux because a tpu thread said it might help his overclock a bit.

    This de-liding thing, do you guys get good results on SB processors too? Impressive results, intel really dropped the ball on whatever thermal interface they used for IB.

    Btw, that's a beautiful photo cadaveca, makes me wanna try this thing on one of my processors :toast:

    Overnight @ 4.8Ghz! Before de-lid, it was 94c, now it's 80c:

    AS5 seems to be settling in, that's 2c cooler than the 15 minute run I did earlier.
