    Okay I went with AS5, this was probably 9th attempt. I coated the die with AS5 and the lid underside using a baggie on my finger. I think I was just afraid to use too much.

    Temps are 28*C load 62*C load, basically same as before lid but atleast Its better than 40*C idle.

    Okay I am now up and running my OC setting.
    4.0ghz @ 1.128v (-.085 offset)
    After:
    Idle: 25*C Load: 61*C Prime 95

    Before:
    Idle 28*C Load: 64*C Prime 95

    edit: temps are continuing to drop a couple degrees as I run load. As5 thermal paste maturing?

    Progress, good. ...62c load stock?

    Edit:
    Where do you find an V offset in your BIOS? I can't find mine!

    Edit2:

    It's probably spreading out and filling gaps initially. Takes a number of cycles to manture from what I've read.

    I have a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H. I go in my voltage options and select CPU Core volt to normal from auto. Then Offset right below it becomes un-greyed out. I then push + or - to get the offset voltage I want.

    Yes 62 load stock. With undervolt overclock and h100i on high 70*C intel burn test and 59*C Prime95. So I am getting improvements as it cures. Awesome!!!!



    Heres my practice pile of Celeron 420s ($5 per off ebay, it was worth the $20 for the confidence in the delid process). [​IMG]

    I did 2 with razor blade and 2 with vice+hammer. I say vice and hammer is safer because it only takes 1 minute to do and theres less risk of slicing the die. Make sure to clamp the metal IHS really tight and then just put a bit of tape on the edge of the pcb where you strike so it doesn't damage the green plastic

    I'd say of my celerons 3 should be functional and 1 is probably functional but there are some small nicks on the surface of the pcb because the blade didn't want to penetrate without a lot of force.


    Lateedit:
    Does CLU spread easier than CLP? I don't like how hard CLP is to spread it literally stays beaded even with a small brush...

    I don't even see anything greyed out. Then again, I simply typed the VCore value into the box where it said Auto.

    Sweet.

    You're a smart man. Are any of those Celly's socket 1155 or 1156?

    Nope they are socket 775 I think.

    Nice delidding with you buddy lol :toast:


    Late edit: couldn't resist and tore into it again. This time used up the last bit of liquid pro and its running 58*C, 25*C idle, 4.0ghz 1.128v load. The difference this time was I errored on the side of too much. I coated the die and the backside of the ihs where it would contact the die. This is actually a 4*C reduction from the as5 previous.

    Awesome, it sounds like you're ready to go higher. Start with a higher clock... 4.1 and see if you're stable and temps are good, my guess is 60c.

    And next, pictures!

    Before...

    Lid cut off...

    Lid + Chip cleaned... looks sloppy but worked!

    Those are all the pics I took. From start to clean, took about 10 mins.

    So you used the razor method? Thats really fast for 10 minutes. Hell even though I knocked the IHS off in 1 minute with the hammer/vice method it took me atleast 20 minutes to scrape the black adhesive off (fingernail, isopropyl, paper towels)!

    I've got it down to removing the already delidded IHS and reapplying thermal paste in 15 minutes now LOL because I have done it atleast 10x today!!!

    Ok, I admit! Add 15 minutes for a drink break.

    Delidded i7-3770K. Touchy reseating...

    My first post here, heh.
    Anyone know how to better clamp a delidded CPU? Mine is extremely touchy while clamping it down.

    I successfully delided my i7-3770K chip using the vice method. Did not need to strike very hard either. Worked great!
    I cleaned the sealing material and old thermal paste on the chip and lid and put Arctic 5 on the chip (good enough for me).
    The big hassle was getting the CPU to boot. For some reason, I had to reseat and reclamp the CPU about 15 times before it booted. As it is, I can only screw down 3 of the 4 heatsink screws and still boot (CM Hyper 212 EVO air on ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe mobo).
    I am getting a good stable o/c at 4.3GHz now. Temp is a little higher than I like with AIDA 64 stability test (80C max, but averages 73-74C). What is nice is that I am no longer getting random glitches when running above 4.1GHz. I left the voltage on Auto.
    Worth the trouble as long as the damn chip keeps running!
