If you do decide to delid, learn how to do it correctly and be very careful. It's all too easy to kill your CPU. I would highly recommend the vice method over the razor method for this reason.
o.o i delidded just now and my temps are like 5 degrees higher... ill reseat again and see if i didnt use enough paste or something...
reseated, i saw that the die has a little section maybe 1/8th that didnt get covered in TIM. but now im just back to "normal" temps
so i went from pre-delid as normal temps, delid and bad TIM coverage +5 temps, delid and better coverage back to normal temps =/Edited by nubsrevenge - 7/4/13 at 1:57pm
