i bought a 10-pack of single sided razor blades in Lowe's like this:

not sure if they are the correct thickness (can use them for other purpose and tasks, e.g. as glass or mating surface scrapers), but I can get more of some others - perhaps the dual sided ones are thinner, however they are flexible at same time too.

other option I could think of while in store was an exacto knife, but I'd think it's much easier to chip the PCB with it since it's long (leverage effect) and slight change of angle on far end could cause a disaster on the sharp point end ... will post back with my findings and hopefully a success story over the weekend.

The exacto knife helped me get the sides better, after opening up at the corners with a flexible dual edge razor which I bent in a U shape to avoid nicking the pcb when getting the initial break in.

Has anyone used this type of blade, skip forward to 3:30 in You Tube video. These are the blades I purchased that are far thinner than that single sided blade!

i saw some vid's with bloody fingers at the end, using those,
its hard to get a good grip on them, did see them with a metal kind of cap on it somewhere tho,
that might work ok ..will try find a pic of it ..


found one, looks like this..

This is the kind I used. Its a bit flexible but super thin.

yea, thin is good, can be a bit flexible , its a matter of being carefull and take time to delid, prepare well etc..
i used this to delid mine,


i had my mind made up within a week of purchase..lol, but took me a Month orso to prepare, read, watch vid's etc..
before delid my OC at 4.5ghz gave me 105C on prime, well....

That's funny, bloody fingers! You have to be careful and perhaps use some duct tape on one end, I want to put something in the center of the super thin blade to make it stiffer. I could fill it with solder...

yep, when i was looking for info, i saw one mention just that, use some tape/duck tape on one side, should work,
its still a matter of not bending it to much, flexible or not..there should be enough "room" to get most blades between.


"The math tells us the IHS is sitting on top of the CPU, held aloft and creating a gap some 0.14mm to the PCB."


if i look at this pic, there should be more then 0.14mm between pcb and ihs,
because the black glue is still there..
have no idea about the thickness of the blades were using tho..


had to laugh so hard with this vid, using normal knife and hammering it ..lol

I used this and wiggled it under the lid in a see saw motion with steady pressure the whole time. It's easy to control, take your time, don't rush it, you're only cutting a little at a time. You'll feel when you break through the adheasive.

When you insert the blade do you just wiggle it strait in and is it a tight fit at the corners?
