The non-K is also not soldered, so if you have issues with temperatures, a delid can be done and will help lower temperatures. However, it will still remain multiplier-locked and will never overclock as far as a 4790K. Doing it the safe way, would cost around $50 = $30 for delid tool and $20 for CLU.

Not sure it's worth you going through the trouble as your chip is multi locked. You'll never got the overclock out of it where heat is a concern.

If you want to do it, just select 4790k at checkout.

As others said though, since you can't overclock it more than a couple % via BCLK, delidding these chips doesn't serve much use. One case of usefulness would be if you have cooling restricted enough (SFF?) that you're hitting the 100C throttle point, then delidding would make sense to help in that regard.
