Come on, people! It's only a grand!

Or at least I would have bought an i5 instead to save a hundred bucks.
Can someone grab an FX-8350 and open it up, too? It's only $180.

Sure, want me to cut it in half too?

One thing, I thought it was established that the Intel TIM wasn't actually that bad, it's just the spacing of the IHS to the die was a little off and that gap is why delidded Ivy's are so much cooler than normal delidded chips... Source: http://forums.anandtech.com/showpost.ph ... tcount=570

Then you place a block of wood (e.g. flat end of a 2x4) flat along one edge of the pcb and give the opposite end of the wood block a firm hammer tap (does not require massive force). The force of the strike loosens the pcb and then you wiggle it free.
Don't break the CPU. It would be bad.Captain Ned wrote: I love this plan [/Venkman] !!!

The words are spelled too similarly dammit!

ColeLT1 wrote:Chuckula, I read an interesting article, and trying my best to find it again, that they tested all forms of different TIMs, and the intel's ranked up with the best. They posted temps and results, then culprit was not the TIM, but the black epoxy gluing the IHS to the board creates too large of a gap between the IHS and core. They removed all the epoxy and put the IHS back on without touching the TIM, then removed the IHS and tested with high quality TIMs between the IHS and core, and saw equal temps to high quailty TIM, and much lower temps than stock.
Granted, solder would be better than any TIM.
