There is agood chance you will kill your CPU. I've done it on my 3770k successfully, but only since i had experience doing this with older opterons (which i killed two of ). It's not so much about the die itself, although you have to be careful not to chip it, it's about not cutting the PCB. If you do, you can end up with anything from a gimped memory controller (one dead channel) to a dead chip.
