delided my i7-3770k (no pictures, just another success story)

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just went through this as well on my I7-3770k.
Dropped the highest core from 92c to 69c with the same ambient temps. The rest of the cores droped between 18-20 degrees as well. This is under Prime95 full load.
This was running at 4.4GHz originally and now quickly testing 4.5.

CoolLaboratory Liquid Ultra between the die and the IHS. PK1 between the IHS and the NH-D14 SE2011 with the 1555 mounting kit.

Intel absolutely blew it with the TIM on the K versions. So much better with CL Liquid Ultra.
By the way, CLLU is veeeery easy to apply, you just "airbursh" the liquid metal around.

Do NOT use a regular double sided razor blade. It is too thin and too flexible. It will bend on you and it will cut the PCB!! Use a thicker razor that does not bend easily. Or use a regular breakoff utility knife (thinnest one I found was good, it did not bend much).

It is nerve wrecking to do, so do this at your own risk. But it does make a huge difference, at least on air!!

Good luck!

Haha, there are plenty of pics and videos floating around.
I just wanted to share results and give people a tip not to use the thin razor. biggrin.gif

This one Make sure you do not put this anywhere near aluminum heatsinks!! It is also highly conductive! So it's pretty much perfect to go between the die and the IHS (but anything else might be dangerous if you are not careful).

Pictures and screens of temps please. That is quite a decrease, I have been thinking of doin this this to my 3570k. Glad to see it was successful for you.

Wasn't taking pictures, I was concentrating on not killing the CPU, heh.

I will post a screenshot of the current temps shortly.

The ambient is pretty high as you can see from the lowest temps, it is hot here.
But still, this is quite an improvement from 87-92 temps I was getting before. And this is running 100 MHz faster.

work in progress! 4.8 was only stable with 1.360v!! Right now testing 4.7 at 1.248.
Quite a significant wall from 4.7 to 4.8, even though the temps were fine with 1.360, I would much rather use 1.248 for 24/7. wink.gif

Anyway, still working on lowering all the voltages while keeping the performance up. Starting to look good though.



Should mention this is with PLL overvoltage disabled! Enabling it did not help at all with 4.8 stability.

why didn't you put the Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra between the IHS and the NH-D14, u could of get more lower tempatures. at least 5-10c lower thumb.gif
