I think taking your time and using the thinnest razor you can find is key IMO.

Yes as I thought it does make it harder. Thats what led to my demise. But live and learn. The advice I give now, if you don't have money to replace it why risk it? The CPU I have now is great for gaming but I still miss my Ivy. redface.gif

Yeah when I did mine, I assumed I was going to ruin it. Lol. But I am in a position that if need be I could buy another if it went wrong. I tell anyone who asks to be prepared for worst case scenario.

I wonder if people being concerned about the thought of losing their chip could cause them to be slightly more careless than they would otherwise. Even if they don't notice it. I always tend to rush things without even thinking if I'm worried about something.

hmm idk. I think people just get inpatient when after 10 or 20 minutes of trying to be really careful and not making much progress so they end up pushing way too hard. Which ends with hitting the die or cutting into the circuit tracing. But I guess there is static dissipation as well. Someone might delid the chip just fine but discharge a static charge to the die.

I do wonder about the real chances of static damage though. I have never, in my life, ever seen a single case of it. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but I am always less than careful about static charge and have never had a single issue.

I know right, I have never heard of a real case either. lol, but I never rule it out.

I've always wondered the same thing amigo. I am extremely OCD about grounding myself though, so I guess it shouldn't happen. But if it is possible, and alls it takes is that one time....Glad i'm OCD in this regard!

I have repaired PC's for years now and never seen one either. Its also funny how in college for IT they said never use a magnetic screw driver to take screws out, as it will damage the components. That simply is a myth as well. Sure if you get a big enough magnet, but not with a screw driver, from what I have seen at least. Mythbusters should test how much static or a magnetic field it would take to disrupt it.

maybe for future delidders, we can put up a die template of where it is so they can overlay it on there IHS?

I've actually killed a motherboards VGA somehow with static... I've got two wristbands now, I got one with a toolkit and another was $2 when I bought a motherboard so I thought why not.
I'm actually going to use a wristband when I de-lid mine,
