1. First of all the tool I got me delidded safely in about 10 seconds tops. I'd never go back to a razor - not recommending the tool I got specifically, there are a lot of these out there and they all work by essentially partially rotating the IHS while applying equal pressure. Nothing is 100% safe, but this is as safe as it gets!

2. Adhesive properly cleaned (credit card for CPU, razor/credit card for the IHS), isopropyl alcohol used to clean the die, the IHS and the heatsink. Applied CLU between die and IHS and between IHS and cooler (NH-D15).

3. And results: After testing I got a total average TMax decrease across all cores of a whopping 16C at the same Ghz/voltage!!

Average TMax Before: 75.25 C
Average TMax After: 59.25 C

Note 1: TMax is being calculated by adding all max temps as reported by CoreTemp and dividing by 4.
Note 2: For this test I was using Prime 28.9 with AVX2 for max (unrealistic) load/temps.

My CPU fans don't even ramp up to 100% now. Perhaps I got a a really bad CPU in terms of stock TIM application, but this is such a huge difference that I'm just shocked. So delid away guys, just stay away from the razor and stay safe ;-)

Off to see how far she goes now. Cheers.

Wow impressive improvement. I will have to delid mine eventually.

Wonder how low you can go if you're able to run bare die... Maybe another 2-5C drop???? tongue.gif

Maybe. I wouldn't try it without spacers, especially with my 5 ton cooler, but it should be OK for those on water.

Anyway, seems my CPU ain't that great after all - hit a wall - 4.8 Ghz at 1.44 V so I'm down to 4.6 now. Probably not worth the money for the extra 100-200 Mhz, but at least I'm not heat limited anymore and my rig is strangely quiet... oh, and the geek in me finally shut up ;-)

4.8ghz at 1.44V isn't bad at all. Though I can't say anything since mine does 4.8ghz at 1.36V xD
