Xeon de-liding?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I already de-lided 2 Ivy Bridges (i7) and obtained great results (temperature wise).

I have a server running on a Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge. I'll have to take it down this week for maintenance, and it'll be a good opportunity to make a few hardware tweaks. Now, I know that de-liding a non-overclocked server CPU isn't going to be very useful... But let's say that I'm bored and like to make the best out of my hardware.

My question is : Is the Xeon E3 built like his Ivy Bridge cousins?

Thanks!



(ps: I'm aware of the related risks, etc)

Test it head to head with 3770K at same controlled methods and see if the temperatures are very far apart. If they are, you can be the first to try.
