    As a note, I didn't freeze or heat the 3800+. I just used a box cutter blade, and being very careful, had it off in 10min.

    I dunno. In that thread you linked, some mentioned freezing the cpu first. I just did mine at room temp.

    if something changes temperatures very rapidly, there is an "accelleration effect". it doesn't actually got hotter or colder, but if I take a block of ice and heat it to 99 degrees in under a second, the water molecules will continue into a gas state for a time regardless of the fact that there isn't enough heat

    The freezing part mentioned has nothing to do with cpu cooling. The members of the other forum DaMulta linked just said that freezing your cpu makes removing the IHS easier. I don't see how tho, it was retarded easy on my 3800.

    next time you get an idea to do something to the hardware just send it to me... You don't have to destroy it when i would gladly take it from you.

    There are 2 kinds of PC overclockers, those that have broken hardware, and those that will.

    I don't actually like breaking it. I just want to achieve maximum performance, sometimes I just try too hard. lol.

    Didn't have my water up and running (need more tubing), and wanted more out of it with my Freezer64 Pro.

    Aww I never thought about that... Maybe I should rip the IHS off my e6750, it costs much less than my beloved 3070.

    I wouldn't, if I were you. many c2d are soldered, but that's not the biggest problem. On my former E4300, when the IHS came off, the core was actually below the metal around the cpu socket. No HS could make contact with it.

    Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get that tubing with nylon in it. It's the shi3 and you can take some hard hard hard turns with it. It's around 2 dollars a foot.
