Delidding using a Workmate..

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I've been using my 4770k for about half a week now. I managed to get it stable at 4.5 Ghz with a Vcore of 1.238 and everything else pretty much on Auto. I run a custom loop so the temperatures are fine but at this setting it still hits 72 degrees celcius (highest core) on Intel burn test extreme setting.

I'd like to delid it but because I dont have a vice, and I'm too scared to use a razor, I asked my father in law to help me out. He also doesnt have a vice but said "oh we could do that with a Workmate". I looked at the thing and I'm pretty sure I dont want to risk using that, but maybe there is a person here that has succesfully used it to delid.

This is the Workmate: http://www.blackanddecker.com/allproducts/workmate.aspx

He told me we could use it as a vice because it pretty much does the same thing. What do you think guys? Doable or too risky?

The workmate can also be used as a vice, so the dangers of using it to Delid will be the same as if you are using a vice.

If you are really concerned about Delidding, then why Delid at all? 72C is nothing for Haswell, you have at least 10-15C before you should get worried about temps being too high.

Im more concerned about the method, the workmate is pretty worn and it looks to me like it couldn't 'grasp' the IHS so I wanted to make sure that it's even possible to use the workmate at all.

I know it can get hotter than this, but then again I'm on a custom loop and I really dont want to see these high temps seeing as I can delid and lower them a bit.

Well the workmate is often used as a vice too, so if you believe it's worn and not necessarily up to the task. That is going to be your call. Although you are on a custom loop, and you don't want to see temps being "too high." Doesn't that defeat the purpose of going with a custom loop? I mean you could have settled for a high-end air cooler or nice AIO unit while being able to achieve 4.5GHz without a problem. Temps would still be in the safe zone with those alternative cooling methods.

You can push those clocks and voltages further without much worry. Haswell's max temp is about 100C and at that point it will start throttling. These new chips Ivy and Haswell were specifically made to handle these high heatloads because private "agencies" and the military are testing sub-zero cooling methods. That's why they run so hot, because sub-zero cooling runs better with hotter chips. These chips were made to handle extreme heat loads. You have nothing to worry about @ 72C.

If you want to do some "tinkering" try lapping your chip and your waterblock. Should give you about 5C or so drop in temp. Maybe more if you are lucky.

Here's a nice guide, that follows up lapping with a delidding guide:

not sure how I got 2 pics but use some kind of true straight edge,,,,like a corner molding or something like that,,,,stick it over the worn edges of the workmate vise,,that will hold it true and steady for you

Yeah man an AIO would have cooled my GPU as well. rolleyes.gif Also where's the fun in having something that everyone and their mom has? I never had a custom loop, it was fun putting it all together. What makes you think people with a custom loop want to see high temps? one of the reasons for me was to have low temps with silent operation. I don't even know why I'm talking about this, my question was if a Workmate could be used as a Vice. Thanks for the guide though

i dk ..I used Vice grips and ..my utility trailer frame biggrin.gif
It kinda dug vice-grip-jaw-shaped chunks out of the IHS and peeled it up..
So i had to lap it.
