Do you know about any "safe" ways to take of your IHS. I tried it earlier with my 3200+ and had very little success. I ended up bending like 5 pins (thank god for mechanical pencils, still don't know if i broke the chip or not). Also are there any razors that are good for taking it off.

Well about razors, I would use like a box cutter razor that locks into place. About the bending of pins, if you still got the orignal plastic case the CPU came in(if you bought retail) I used the styrofoam insert it had that held the CPU to protect the pins.

Thats exactly what I did, but for some reason it still ended up bending my pins. It was only outside pins, none in the middle or anywhere else. I don't know what I did with my finger during the cutting part. I also don't think that I got deep enough into it. Maybe I should just let it go with the whole "Remove your IHS" things before I end up breaking my 4400+ and cry myself to sleep . Unless there are any more video tutorials (not the one on oc.net) I don't think that I am going to do it.

I just don't want to damage my processor you know . Things didn't really go over well with my 3200+. I don't even want to try it on my 4400+ until I can do it flawlessly on my 3200+ which I don't care about. Let me hook you up with a picture of my razor that I used.

first one looks fine but replace the blade on that! Nice clean blade for your shiny toledo.

Alright. I know that this may sound retarded. But does this look alright/right. Could you be able to tell if I did something wrong, broke something with your eyes? Or would I have to actually put it in my mobo and test it?

It's a little blurry but it looks normal. Looks like you didnt chop anything off!
