I definitely recommend using a vise about 8min. to Delid including setting up vice and catch blanket, in case you smack the wood too hard and it flies off. Check the chip between smacks, it's best to pull it off as soon as it becomes loose a bit. Use a wooden toothpick to help remove factory Tim cleanly, follow by a credit card to get rid of black sealant. Finally a little 90%+ rubbing aclcohol before covering transistors with nail clear coat. I've found Gelid or better yet, CLU to work the best. If you haven't worked with a delidded chip before, remember to hold the lid in place or about .06-.125" back against the force of the socket locking mechanism, so after installed its in the appropriate location.
