I've got the hammer and wooden block...!

I am nervous! Should I heat it up?! Or just go for it? I'll give it a few taps...if it doesn't come off, I will say screw it and try tomorrow. tongue.gif

Just go for it!
Small wonder.

DO NOT heat it up. Also, it is going to need more than a couple of taps. No where near full swings, but a stern couple of hits. Do you have someone that can stand in front with their hands close to it just in case it goes flying? Or you could put it up against a wall. I doubt it will go flying because you seem cautious, but better to be safe.

I'd try to hold it in place or put the whole thing inside a big cardboard box with padding when doing the deed.rolleyes.gif

LOL to hit it that hard to send it flying... You must be aiming for a home run with your hits lol. I like to give it little taps and go up in force until i feel the adhesive give.

I have a 3770k in the mail,
I would like to ask all of you, seeing as razers and this method both have pro's and con's...

Is there any damage done to the PCB since the transfer of energy from the wood block is still hitting the PCB? The reason I ask is because, yes, I'm super scared to even try to delidd with a razer but i'm more worried about doing this and having my chip die for some odd reason... Any reports? I'd appreciate if you all shared your experiences:D

I'm typing this right now on a 3770k that I chipped the green soldermask off the edge of the PCB where I hit it. Didn't manage to delid it, but my setup was a pretty ghetto attempt (this is my backup 3770k, so I didn't care if it broke). Will be going to home depot tomorrow for a clamp on bench vise.

Oh and this cpu flew a few feet too with one of my attempts before landing on concrete.

Moral of the story: pretty hard to break these things thumb.gif

I hear ya, my main worry is about the transfer of energy, while they might be sturdy, they are small and electronic, I'm truly scared of hitting wood with a hammer, I also hate to have any bad experience with razer or hammer first hand biggrin.gif I can not afford to lose $300!

Let me know how it goes after you delidd yours, i'll be reading many posts and watching many videos before I even get enough courage to do anything to mine

I suggest using a rubber mallet. Makes it so you really have to be swinging hard to delivery the same shock as a normal hammer. (because shock is a function of how quickly something stops, the rubber mallet compresses a little bit on impact which increases the time to stop, decreasing shock).

Ugh! Really?!?

The more elastic your whole chain, the less control you have over the force. What is with you people taking a very simple and contollable procedure and making it far more complex and harder than it needs to be.

Use a steel hammer and a soft wooden block. Start tapping lightly and gradually ramp it up until it lets go. Watch the video. It's _easy_ and both times I did it the adhesive let go in a very controllable fashion. If your chip goes flying you are hitting it WAY too hard or you have crappy hammer control. Tap, not whack.

If you are so ham fisted as to need a rubber mallet or to turn your chip into a projectile, walk away and find something easier to do (like knitting).

You guys must either be really rich or really ballsy to be willing to put a >$200 CPU anywhere near a vise and a hammer

Personally, I'd just deal with the higher temps, but I have a first-gen i5, so what do I know rolleyes.gif
