my condolences Wile E. used to remove the IHS on the K6's and every so often had things go wrong with the die thanks to the epoxy in use at manufacturing... just no telling how much or how strong such is under that plate.

Im not sure that your CPU is quite "dead"...
if its anything like Intel's CPU's.. what you have done is to rip
the "Core" out of its pin expansion package...
its like you took the cpu off the motherboard...
except in this case it was soldered onto
the motherboard...

Unless you cracked it, you should be able to put it back on and boot up to the bios...
further than that then the differences in heat dissipation due to your having physically
pulled it off its package after it as sealed on (think of arctic silver's sealing time and the differences it makes to temps.. its kinda like that) should not let you get into Windows. There are ways to fix that problem... but its way beyond the scope of an online forum like this.

It does look to me like you have pins pointing out of your core.. if you haven't bent them and could realign them JUST as it was before.. you might have a chance

Good luck!!!

Nope, no pins. Trust me, the thing is screwed. lol. There are various layers of the core divided between both the pcb, and the IHS. AKA: It didn't come out in one piece.

all cus i wanted to try 4gb of ram lol put in 4 matchen stickes an nothing that was it was dead turned on but evin the led display wouldent say anything

so i got the dfi expert an opty165@3.0gh i have now nice combo with the 8800gts

oh an yeah that is solder on your cpu i have pulled apart 3 p.4s so far that had that same thing but they dident pull the chip off

the way i did the last one was i put a razer blade under each side to give it a lil force then heated the cap with a blow torch till the cpu fell off the cap cus the razors wer prying it off if u get me

after just had to scrape off the solder with a razor

lol that 6000 is a goner for shure i wouldent evin try it could cook the board

next time find a few K6-2's to practice on first bro
It only happened because it was soldered, and I used too much force. I popped the IHS off my X2 3800 the very next day with no mishaps. lol.

lol thats good to hear, just dont do it with an intel, they soder them these days
Don't worry, my Q6600's IHS is staying right where it's at. lol. Not only that, you have to modify the socket on a good portion of the 775 boards if you remove the IHS, because heatsinks (or blocks) will hit the metal around the socket before making contact with the core. How do I know that? Visit link #1 in my sig to see. :roll:

IHS is the cover for your CPU. They put it there so people won't F up their CPU with paste, not putting the heat sink on right and so on then RMA it.


CPUS look like they have always have.


Now they just have a cover that will increase temps because you have to go through another cover.

its not about the pasit demulta, its about crushing the core, i saw ALOT of crushed duron/athlon/athlonxp chips back in the day, they went to an IHS for 2 resions, protect the core and add a head spreder so that if you power the system on without a cooler the cpu wont get instantly bbq'd.
