Project 3770k *De-lid and apply Liquid PRO* also lapped. - Page 7

What did you actually do that caused the chip? Slip of the razor blade? Pulling off the lid? ..?

Probably pushing the blade in too far.

The picture makes me think of heating up the blade so it melt cuts without force.

Could you briefly describe the heating process you used to pop off the IHS. Sorry for your loss.

Perhaps that would help but it might damage the PCB.

I didn't use heat.

I basically did as this video did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCW508yl_Eg

I find highly unlikely the PCB would be damaged. As for heating a razor blade, a lighter, match, soldering iron, then insert. The blade would cool down pretty quickly so heat, insert, heat, insert..

Well no one's going to stop you so go ahead and post results!

The safest and simplest way is with a double edge shaving razor. You use electrical tape to cover one edge, thus allowing you to hold the blade. You then run a single layer of tape just up from the cutting blade end, this is your depth marker. If you cut all round and the lid hasn't twisted off. You simple take a new blade and make a slighting deeper marker with electrical tape.
This method has two destinct advantages, double edged razor blades are extremely thin, and the depth marker stops you cutting the core.
Have used this method dozens of times, without issue.

On my phone, so if this reads naff you know why

hmmm, good thought with the tape to mark how deep the blade goes.
