with any blade you use, you can mess the delid up,
i delidded mine before i joined here, theres so much more info now thanks to this thread
yea, keep the blade right angled all the time, and youll be fine ..
dont let it go to either side..[/quote]
I am feeling alot more confident about it but I hear nightmare stories of, "well yea it looked easy when I watched a vid so I just did it the same and for some reason when the glue finally gave my blade didnt stop like the videos, it just slammed right into the die."
And that is quite terrifying considering the pressure you obviously have to use. Your sons hand was clearly holding the cpu extremely tight, was he applying equal pressure with the blade or just moderate. I want my blade to just slide to a stop like that one did. And like I said I feel I may just be over thinking this way to much because of whats at stake..... but people keep saying the pressure required to cut the glue will send the blade soaring into the die like a bullet.

EDIT: Wanted to clarify to all who are interested. My CLP and arctic silver is on its way, will be arriving in a day or two, I am delidding not one but TWO i7 3770k's. I will be delidding as soon as the package arrives. I cannot afford to **** up either CPU, I have 2 identical comps, whatever I do to one, I do to the other. So if I get new fans, they both get new fans, if I delid, they both get delidded.
I absolutely cannot afford to **** up either delid, and That is not going to stop be from delidding. I cant be talked out of it. What I am trying to do right now is get as much information as I can to not be crying on here later. lol
I plan to join the club so real soon ill need to do a test on my current Overclock that can be posted here for before and after. Prime95 didnt save my 26 hour small ftt test so I need to use something else. What is the fastest test for club joining purposes?
I will be posting Both computers in my sig as my 2 chips are wildly different in terms of overclockability. one seems above average, the other isnt such a lottery winner.
Ill get a cool avatar of my delid as well.
I am EVEN considerring making a vid of the delid. But no guarantees there. It would be helpful for noobs coming later in my boat wanting to see a first timer do it with everything at stake and no way to replace the cpu's. Its alot harder to work up the courage in my circumstances.Edited by Kolt21 - 1/15/13 at 5:47am
