I think I'm gonna try the vise+hammer delid method soon.
What do you guys think?
...on the vise+hammer, I am wondering whether you should use a heat-gun first re. the silicon...other than that, the only thing that worries me is that the IHS hits the die when it flies off
...on the vid cards, I have a unique problem...per earlier posts, I now have two ROG boards (MVE, RampIVE)...I also have a friend who lives a floor below me who has a new software company involved in building software for rendering for 4K monitors...as such, he currently has 28 boxes of Gigabyte 7970ies behind the couch, awaiting deployment in the render farm...two per machine but NOT in CF to mimic 4K
...that gives me an idea to try a few out (bin them
) on the second mobo...fortunately /unfortunately, I'm still waiting for the 3970x to arrive so I have a few more days to ponder this predicament....though I could just pull the 670ies for a bit over Eastern...oh dear
