Hi there im new here but im reading this thread for some time now,.
so yesterday i finally have the courage to delid my processor and i was successful @ deliding it
it was very easy for me coz my ihs is already lifted at the lower end of my ihs... so i just got my self a razor blade and pop out the ihs and it worked
here is the actual picture of my delided 3570k:
i didn't actually clean all the black glue on my processor because im to scared to scratch the pcb
here is my temp after i delided my processor using cheap thermal paste @ ihs and the processor it self:
as you can see guys it still a bit warm and its on stock speed and idle temp...
its hot here in the Philippines but before i delid my procssor my temp package was 42 c
