For the delidding, I had originally thought about using the vice/block of wood method but I just don't think I'm willing to hit my processor yet LOL. Thanks again for the advice guys!
I don't think throwing more rads at it is going to help much, I guess you could say the stock thermal compound is a bottleneck. I understand your fear of delidding though, I just stuck my processor at 4.5 and got over my 5ghz dreams fast lol
