Soaked the ihs/got some on the pads of the chip in solvoplast for 24 hours. Used a DE blade to attempt to delid. Went smoothly and finished. washed off the solvo with 99% iso. Used liquid pro on the die and mx2 on the hsf. Boots up but it can't get past the logo and doesnt show up any graphics at all in bios. Only thing that pops up is the boot menu. Using the integrated gpu causes artifacts to show up on screen. No nicks, no scrapes, it was a perfect delid but it's somehow dead. I'm going to leave it for a while to dry out I hope but I honestly don't have much hope for it. It was a retail edge 3770k so the $damage isn't so bad but I just feel dumb now
good to know, but bad for you CroSsFiRe2009..dang
i still have to do some testing with that method, ive saved all the adhesive of the delidded pentiums,
but first wanted to do it on a spoon, with only some of the adhesive, if it would dissolve it,
i was gonna do the same as you, let it soak for hours in the adhesive remover, and see if i could take the ihs off
without using a blade..
i didnt/dont know if it would harm the green on the pcb, still not sure, did you see anything ?
i bought this to test with, its very hefty stuff
removal of stickers, sticker adhesive, rubber adhesive
, adhesive tape,
tar splashes, greasy patches, oil, heel marks and many other problems, from virtually all surfaces.Edited by VonDutch - 1/23/13 at 11:15pm
