Previously de lidded 3570k, scratched pcb to the guts...chip still worked. Upgraded to 4770k de lidded razor method, no scratches on pcb this time, used microfiber towel and rubbing alcohol to remove TIM from die. Applied CLP with soft makeup brush. Put it in my maximus vi hero: No Display on powerup but I can hear windows loading on my speaker, also no error code just A0. Don't know what went wrong, Chip is cleaner than a babies bottom. Tried different chip, everything working perfectly. Could die become damage from rubbing off TIM?
