Don't tempt the man!! If he actually tries it and messes up he won't have any more CPUs!!
But if he successfully then well....
what if someone removed an IHS and then decided he wanted to put it back on,what would you use?
I would use black silicon.
Some of that Arctic Silver adhesive maybe?
Yes, yes actually I do. But I'm still not soldering on this 3800+/ Popping the IHS was enough risk for one day for me, thank you very much. lol
I'd just use Super glue to put the IHS back on. Don't forget the TIM on top of the core.
LOL I don't blame you.
I don't know if I would try it, unless I have a better one in the mail.
You should add mine TEC in your sig Wile LOL "Remember when TEC cooling goes bad #2" Where do you think #1 was at....hahaha
Sig edited. lol
Get another 3800 and try it I know I would lol.
Tell you what, send me an AM2 X2 3800+ or better, and I'll give it a go.
Pay half for shipping and you've got a deal
So uh, how much does it cost to ship a cpu to the states? lol
Probably a lot lol.
after seeing this I'm definitely not touching my x2, don't want it turning out like that.
Yours is a 939, not am2. Its only the high end am2 chips that are soldered.
i might be temped after all then, cooler wouldn't need modded, but need to find out how to vmod this board first or theres not much point.
Man... You're a Master of Disaster...
Youknow.. most clever people would learn from castrating one CPU
I wonder if they did this to the black 5000 Hmmmmm
should I do it?
Why not? I already popped the top on my X2 3800+.
Just don't try to pry it, if the ihs doesn't come off nice and easy. The 3800 was easy, once I ran the razor blade all the way around, and was sure I cut the seal all the way thru, the IHS just fell off.
This is a very good thread on seeing what ones you can, and which ones you shouldnt remove.
I took a IHS off of my old 3600 before, and it just took a while because I didn't want a dead chip LOL.
Where's the list of ones that you shouldn't try to remove?
you have to thru that thread. There is some dead ones in there like yours.
