. Have you tested your chip? Did you find it easy or was it like servicing the hubble telescope?
This build is painfully slow. I keep hoping to see major updates but... I guess the best things take time. It won't happen overnight!
Honestly, I don't really know what to do when I did it. I was doing it while watching a youtube vid on how to delid CPus. Fortunately, everything went fine. No damage on pcb.
It was actually pretty easy. All you need is a razor blade and patience. Do it slowly and lid will just pop out from it. No, I haven't tried it yet. My TIM for die and for IHS will be here anytime today. This chip will go on project prodigious so might take a while before I get something to show. Hopefully it works and I could get good result both on temps and ocing.
I am really sorry if this build is taking so long. I really want to work on it, but I have to prioritize school and work. Sad to say, or maybe I am glad to say that this project might get delayed a bit more coz something interesting is coming. Nothing's confirmed yet tho.
Don't worry. In first two weeks of January, there will be a huge update including both the right and left side panels.
Pretty close to finished design of left side panel.

I might steal a few ideas from you
nice! I would love to work on those cases as well! I'd use ATX mobo for that case tho. Gene would look so small for that case. No worries for the designs and concept, but to let you know, originality will stand out!
Try to be unique. Brainstorm. Think , think and design. It's all about quality, design, and precision. Goodluck with your mod.
