My 4770K Wont delid (Vice Method) Help!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so I made the switch to Intel from my wonderful 1090T that has served me well but its time to upgrade. I'm in the process of trying to delid using a vice i pick up from harbor freight for 13 bucks. I'm using a wood shim and a hammer because I don't have a block of wood but no luck. The head spreader is really stuck on there! I'm afraid of hammering too hard a bending it. Any help?

Ask in delid thread/club, the big one, more people will see/help

You can warm it up using a hairdryer, you also don't necessarily need to use a hammer with vice if it worries you

There's a second method where you put the PCB on one side of the vice and the IHS on the other and you slowly tighten the vice. This doesn't require a wood block or hammer and has been proven to be just as quick as the method you are trying. It is advised to tape off the CPU and the vice to prevent any scratches, especially if your vice does not have flat edges. Also beware of the capacitors on the left side of the die (Haswell-only).

The hammer and wood method took me about 10minutes to do since my block of wood wasn't a solid piece of wood, but after about 20 wacks, it came off.

lol bro you don't need to do that...do what he said and use the tighten method...I use a 20$ vice and with the tighten method its takes less than 2 minites literaly and is much healthier on the chip than smashing a wood block up against it... biggrin.gif ive done 15 or so delids 5 witht the tighten method this also prevents any deformation of the lid

Yeah he ended up doing that method (partially at least).
