This does read quite logical to me.

For the sake of an extra post about it; your idea reminded me of those denied dental floss in jail due to its use as a cutting tool for shivs, escape attempts, etc. In that case I may need an abrasive liquid to rub with it, and I am hesitant to search "dental floss prison breaks" or something of the sort over google.

Hey everyone, I've done some searches of this forum and I'm looking for some help on a couple of things.

  • How can I be sure my cpu is operating properly after delidding and that I have not damaged anything. I've read that PCIe lanes can be damaged? How will I know?
  • I am looking at the heat gun method, it seems very simple. I won't ask what method is best safest etc. but I will ask what are the risks of this method.
  • Is there any concerns about operating a delidded cpu where the IHS has slid just a smidge on install of the cpu into the socket

Thanks so much for your help. I will continue to read the thousands of posts. This forum is very well contributed to.

You can use GPU-Z render test to see if your GPU is still operating at 3.0 x16( if you have a reasonably modern card). Another common thing to die is RAM Channels, which is easy enough to diagnose by populating each of the slots and seeing if the DIMMs show up in bios or in cpu-Z. I cant speak for the dangers of the heatgun method from personal experience, but as I understand it, you are still putting the cpu in a vice, so take proper care not to damage the PCB when you are tightening it down. I have only done razor method, so maybe someone else can chime in on heatgun+vice. The lid on the CPU does not have to be perfectly square and perfectly centered, but try not to don't let it touch the array of gold dots that intel leaves on the top of the pcb, and that both wings are in fact under the latch and you should be fine...

I used floss to start delidding then once I'd managed to get under a corner, I used a small piece of stiff plastic from some packaging to break the rest of the seal.

I thought about doing this until I got a delid mate of another member. Used that and pop, clean off.

I did a combination of razor + heatgun.
It was rather hard to get the razer under the heatspreader, so I just a super cheap heatgun (like 16 euros) which basically had 2 settings: hot and extremely hot.

I used the hot setting on the external heatspreader, just to soften the internal glue and by heating the heatspreader it will also 'shrink' the material (not sure how to explain this in english).
Basically it makes it easier to get the razor under the heatspreader. But be careful that the heatspreader gets hot rather fast; also be careful with the heatgun that you don't cook your CPU biggrin.gif

I also used the vice method once but did it without heating it.

Both methods work fine and both have their pros and cons. But I'd say the razor method requires some more finesse.
