im currently on the edge of whether or not to delid, i want to but not sure about the possiblility of not having a warranty if something were to go wrong at a later date. also not sure which method is best. i like the razor blade method becuase you have much more control, but ive also heard that the vice method is better for haswell because of the caps being so close to the glue. i did not get a great chip, currently i need 1.325v to run at 4.4ghz, if you need them i can get screenshots of my bios. i am currently running an xspc rs360 750l kit with the raystorm block, and it hits about 85-86c on the hottest core in prime95 and IBT. i have not tryed to go any higher as i dont want any hotter temps, but i would like to get 4.6 or 4.8 both of which was easy on my 2500k. i want you guys to sway me to delid or not to delid. according to the guy from intel i talked to delidding does void your warranty but its still up to the tester/inspector as to whether it will be replaced.. im leaning towards the razor blade method only because im a bit hesitant to use a hammer on a cpu. i currently have a maximus hero and 2x8gb gskill ripjaws 2400(blue heatsink).
