The best tools! the sticky black adhesive on the electrical tape makes sure that the blade does not move freely, it actually makes the blade drag its feet thumb.gif.

Delidded Skylake for your pleasure.

Please notice that there are no scratches, no fuss no muss! It could not be safer. As you can see from my hands, I am not a person who works with his hands! typer.gif






All I can say is DAMN!!!!!! applaud.gif

What's the shiny thing in the middle of the square green thing?

Seriously though, good job. I don't see a scratch any where.
Mine would look like a shaved elbow.

These don't seem to have the caps exposed like Haswell...

I'd offer a word of caution to anyone contemplating this who has not done it before. Just because some (or many) people have had positive experiences, doesn't mean everyone has had a positive experience. If you can't afford to lose the chip and have to replace it, don't delid.

Now, assuming you can take the risk ...

IF you decide to use a razor blade, it cannot be stressed enough:

DO NOT USE THESE:


^I used these on my 1st 3770K delid and destroyed the chip. Costly mistake. ^

What ultimately made a difference for the 3770K was using a thinner blade, as mnasir is suggesting here for Skylake.
This thinner blade was able to slice into the adhesive on the same 3770K very easily. It all came down to blade thickness.

So if you're going to use a blade, use THIS kind! It is thinner:


I had to look in 6 different local stores before I was able to find the kind of blade that I needed. Most of our pharmacies here no longer sell them, and I couldn't find them in the hardware stores or Wal-Mart-type places.

You are absolutely right. Perhaps brute force was a good method for other CPUs. I think that is an unnecessary risk in the case of Skylake. When using a razor blade is so very safe.

Absolutely Agree. Also you might want to say away from "Schick" dispenser cartridge.

Walgreen's or amazon both carry Double Razor Blades in stock. I got mine from my neighborhood Walgreen's.

Sincerely,

Nasir
