post #29241 of 33978
Fantastic news, gentlemen;

I damaged my 4790k delidding it using the vise method. Had tape on the vise, taped the chip in place, used a rubber mallet, yadda yadda yadda, it chipped the PCB. So I bought a G3258, and set my 300$ paperweight off to the side.

Purchased the tuning plan for it, waited a month, went out and bought some Permatex Gasket Maker (8$ USD for a gigantic tube of the stuff) and re-affixed the IHS to the PCB. Sent it in fully expecting it to get denied.

THEY APPROVED IT

THEY
APPROVED
IT

I wish I had taken more pictures, but the chip in the PCB was extremely noticeable, and there was extra gasket maker coming out of the sides of the IHS, and THEY APPROVED IT.

Even better, the replacement I'm getting is a BX806 batch, whereas my old one was a BX508 batch, so hopefully I might even be able to push it further.

Sadly, I have no current plans to delid this replacement, at least not until I've gotten in several playthroughs of Fallout 4.

Todd is Good, I am happy, fuark year biggrin.gif

I had previously delidded a 4690k safely using the razor method, and did the same with the G3258 I got to replace my dead 4790k.

My mistake was using the vise method, an extremely dangerous method comparatively speaking, when I had already successfully done it once before with a razor blade.

If I ever do/need to delid my replacement, I will make sure and do it with either a razor blade or a plastic razor blade, such as these http://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Double-Edged-Blades-Scraper/dp/B004623NU2

My post was more about how insanely lucky I had gotten in getting a replacement issued and/or how Intel simply just doesn't give a damn anymore.

yeah that is insanely lucky.

I dont think those plastic razors will work. I used the double sided shaving razors for my delids. I got a trace and its still perfect luckily though.
Personally I don't think I have theballs to do razor method again.

the stanleyrazors are too thick and the others are too thin and get deformed along the edge

Both times I've done it with the razor method I've used the thicker drywall razors; the trick is, you're not cutting back and forth with it, you just push the razor in between the PCB and IHS through the adhesive. It requires a ton of force and also very fine motor control, because as soon as you feel it going in you have to back off the force.

My 4690k, I sliced my thumb open and bled all over the entire chip, and deformed the crap out of it. Still hit 5Ghz at 1.4v. Did the vise method as carefully as possible and chipped the PCB, insta-killed a 300$ CPU.

Razor method forever and always. But, if I can do 5Ghz at a low enough voltage and temp, I might not even delid the new one.

The razor method is the way to go imo. thumb.gif When you get used to delidding that way you can sucessfully delid pretty much any chip regardless of whether it's soldered or pasted.

Did you hit it with a hammer?

I literally shed a tear when I found out I was getting a replacement chip in spite of the physical damage, and one that was one of the newest ones produced at that. Misty-eyed than a mug.

Should be here by the 12th, so in the event Fallout 4 won't run on my Pentium, I shouldn't have to wait too long. Life is good.

Rubber mallet, lightly tapped it in a succession of quick taps. Not a mongoloid.

I delidded a Core 2 Duo that way.

1. The CPU slipped out of the vice 2x
2. My wood broke before the CPU gave
3. I had to knock the hell out of it.

Just using the vice on my i5 worked great. 5 minutes tops and I was 100% sure it would post. (well, 99% sure)

I do find it ironic that use a hammer to improve a CPU though. smile.gif
