Seriously...I'll mail someone my 3770k along with a prepaid return label. As long as he/she has exp. doing the job I'm down for it. I'd have to order another 3770k though to use while my current one is away.

I would only do it if I got to play with the chip for a week or so.

Nothing too crazy, just to get familiar with a different chip.

I employ the "Extreme take my time method" to delidding.

I don't apply any pressure with my blade, and it takes like 20 minutes of continuous rocking back and forth.

I have a new 3770k en route to me. I'll send you a PM once it arrives (have to make sure it's not a better overclocker than my current one) and then get the ball rolling on shipping details. Will probably mail it out on Saturday.

This is also now my 5th 3770k....I think I have a cherry picking addiction.

...very, VERY interesting - especially as it's priced below EU 4...it takes care of the changed depth parameters and 'correct pin contact' we talked about in this thread so often...

...given the low price, but probably high shipping costs, it almost makes sense to bulk-order...

Guys can we not talk about losses frown.gif? It makes me sad frown.gif

What is the feeling on direct to chip cooling anyway?

I took the top off my ivy, like a year ago so I have not been around to see any developments.

...just speaking for myself, once you decide to delid, the 'running naked' option is almost a natural conclusion, though there are 'pros' and 'cons'.

Running without the IHS seems to save folks anywhere from 1 C to over 5 C in temps, but the greatest difficulty was always in getting the alignment 'right' (i.e. perfectly flat), and then the torquing down / pressure right for the CPU pin contact...the EK stand-offs seem to take care of that, though there are other (more expensive) solutions, such as machining the outside edges of your CPU block in order to keep the CPU latch mechanism on the board.

I may yet opt for running IHS-less, but frankly don't have a temp issue anymore anyways...besides, the IHS, if mounted correctly (also in regards to concave / convex issues) can do exactly what it is supposed to do - that is spread the heat, rather like the cylinder head w/extra fins on an air-cooled motorcycle engine.

Is there any issue to removing the IHS with liquidcool under it?

From my understanding the liquidcool kinda glues itself to everything.

Yea mines at 1.45v idle and 1.47v on load.thumb.gif

Nope... I checked...

...depends what type of Coollaboratory (CL) Liquid Metal (I think that's what you mean). CL-U (Ultra) should be easier than CL-P (Pro) to remove...in both cases, some caution is in order not to get any on sensitive electronic bits as it is obviously conductive and capacitive (some folks dropped it into DRAM slots etc and ruined a board). Other than that, start with Isopropanol...I have removed CL-U several times form the IHS and water block without any problems whatsoever...though the longest it had been in there 'undisturbed' was 1 1/2 mths, so over time (as in your case), it might take a bit more cleaning...

...there are more tips in this thread recently (last two weeks or so) as to how to clean up the trickier CL-Pro
