i'm new here at OCN - what a great community!
Delidded my i7-3770k, with outstanding results!
I used the Razor Blade method, and added the Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra for the die and for the IHS i used HeGrease Extreme.
I did the following, used a 20 micron sandpaper on the die(not sure if this was a very stupid idea), cleaned it all with ArtiClean - The IHS and the die. Added the Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra on the die and placed the IHS, added the Phobya HeGrease Extreme(cross pattern)My system:
i7-3770k @ stock frequency with stock cooler (just for now)
ASUS Maximus V Gene
Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866MHz 16GB
AMD Radeon HD 7950 Sapphire (GTX 780 sometimes next month)
Corsair AX 760 80+ Platinum PSU
Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB SSD
Seagate 7200rpm 64mb cache 1TB HDD
Home-Made Test Bench. (Waiting for the Corsair Carbide 540 Air to go live @ Europe)A picture of the delidded CPU:A screenshot of my temps before deliding, just about 30 seconds and it reached 90 degrees (HWMonitor didn't read my RPM of my fans very well here, huh?):A screenshot of my temps after deliding, Prime95 for just about 10minutes (not sure if the rpm is read correct here either, but seems more legit than the first):
I know that 10minutes of prime is not enough to measure the actual temps, but i believe that 10minutes showed just about enough results!
Even forgot to plug in all my fans in the last test.
Thank you very much for these delidding guides! I'm so much more happy about my Ivy Bridge now.Also downloaded realtemp and gave it a try (for temperature measurement, which software do you recommend?):Ambient Temps before deliding ~ 22,9c.
Ambient Temps after deliding ~ 19,2c.
Now, how do i join this club? Edited by BenQ - 7/20/13 at 5:26am
