What is Intel's view on delidding?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I assume that "delidding" is fairly new, however, clearly people wouldn't feel that they had to delid if Intel just packaged their product better. If they set up their processors with better TIM, nobody would have to delid. It seems strange to me that Intel would continue to put out products which are easily modified (voiding their warranty in the process), and able to get such great results. Especially, considering their "k" processors are released unclocked with the intention that their owners can overclock, however, some thermal restrictions with Intel's current set up make it difficult to do sometimes without a delid.

It clearly wouldn't be that expensive for Intel to fix the problem. Have they ever made a statement on people delidding and do they have any intention of fixing the problem so people won't have to? What is their stance? I think the fact that people are delidding makes Intel look bad, and I would think that they would rather not have that reputation.

What's their stance..?
Well it obviously violates warranty if that's what you're asking..

And people, as masses, are not delidding, just the enthusiasts, and not even a majority.. As for PR, this won't hurt them, one bit.. If someone doesn't like it, they can go to the "competitor"..

its a problem intel knows but doesn't care enough to sort out, people will delid (I am thinking about it ) just only few things is holding me back..

when the paste gets dried up in-between the heat spreader and cpu, also warranty is void and this is the first processor ive actually bought brand new from a shop lol :-z

I'm curious if they don't care because they know very well that the people who would otherwise try to RMA a heavily OCd chip are delidding them effectively getting rid of their ability to RMA it. Can't imagine the margins on that being worth the trouble though.  It's probably just a matter of slightly better margins.

I imagine they want people to make the switch to the extreme series CPUs for the enthusiast markets. More money.
