Just curious, what kind of screw up was it if the lid didn't come off. DId the chip break?

I don't know what went wrong, I gave up and popped it into my board, no boot.

Well yeah there is a risk, but once you do it, it helps so much with temps. Mine popped off with one or two good whacks on the PCB.

Currently sitting at 4.5 ghz at 1.305 vcore with idle temps around 28 and around 55 full load with my 4670k. And this is on a Corsair H50.

A custom loop should blow my cooler out of the water "no pun intended".

If I do, do it again do you have any tips so I can avoid breaking the chip again?
post #15 of 18
Just take your time, make sure you have something to catch the chip like a pillow or blanket behind the vice. I had an ordinary piece of wood against the PCB and took a rubber mallet against the wood, popped off with a few good hits.(Don't be afraid to give it a good whack, the PCB will not crumble) Also would recommend whacking the chip perpendicular to the vice sides, so the IHS doesn't slide or give when you hit it.

So i took the plunge and delidded, this time everything went smooth as butter, other than me putting to much CLP on the die and going through an hour of headaches trying to figure out why I'm in a reboot loop. Cleaned it up and now I'm running IBT on Very high at 4.2 at 1.275 and getting 70 on load. biggrin.gif:D:D

Sorry, it's about a 30 degree drop.
post #18 of 18
Glad it went good this time! That load temp still seems a bit high to me for that voltage, but I have pretty low ambient temps in my living room so that may be why mine is much lower.

70 is still a decent load temp though, you definitely have room for a bit more!
