I use 600 wet (with water) then go to 1000, then 1500 both dry, even though they are wet-sand automotive papers. Works like a dream and is a lot faster and neater. I found that trick on a forum somewhere and tried it and it works well. Never went above 1500, but should be the same end result dry as with water.

Hay can I use Arctic Clean Thermal Material Remover or Nail Polish Remover on the die without harming the processors PCB? I'm about to go under the knife tonight, any last words of caution?

I'd just use normal 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Best cleaning liquid.

That your time - its not a race. Single-sided razor blades worked great for me. Try each corner, find the easiest, once you get the first one going the rest is very easy. Hardest part is getting the guts to try to do it and your already there! Good luck!!!

I got 1000 grit didnt feel like going to multiple stores since they were closed today (oRiellies) I got 400, and 1000 grits

Yeah, I got my high grit sand paper at the local auto part store. The higher stuff is almost like cloth. Ive heard people use a buffling attachment on a dremel tool, but I would not want uneven wear on my IHS. But damn does it shine! Make sure to change directions often, I fliped my IHS around every few minutes to make sure I was getting even break down accross the top. I kind of wish I had lapped the bottom lip that sits on the PCB for a millimeter or so. I still think mine is a little high. Bet I would get dumb and dumber temps if I had done that! biggrin.gif

So is 1000 grit good enough? if not ill go get 2000 or something from oreilys

1000 will be fine, you probably wont see any gains with 2000 grit. Mine was an impulse buy, and then my OCD kicked in and I had to make it look like gold.

Edit: Meant to do this before. REP + to Valgaur. You might not be the first delidder, but you gave us a home.
