IHS removal on 3600 brisbane. - Page 2

post #11 of 43
Thread Starter 
7c drop sounds good to me! With a Zalman if my temps get too high after lapping this would be perfect to save money on a wc kit or a new 60-70 dollar cooler for that 7c. I'm thinking budget, hardcore do-what-it-takes O.C.'ing.

I don't have an extra $70 for an air cooler or $150+ for WC. I know a lot of people on here have the $$$, but a lot also DON'T have the $$$.

Thanks for your opinion though. I will let my results help others make the choice. But since I have an extra CPU, why not try?

Ive no yet removed my AM2 X2 3600+ IHS but it does have glue around the edges. So I can't yet say from first hand experance. But I do recall seeing those with the IHS removed... simply cut off like the 939s.
Some tell the X2 4000+ and up are soldered but again I can not verify that!

Try using Google if you need help on removing the IHS, I got most of my help from Google.

I just practiced on 3 socket 478 CPU's. I think I got it down pretty good.

My second CPU will be here tomorrow or the next day. It was supposed to be here today, thats why I started this thread.

If I may suggest... I've posted some pics of my experience removing a 939 IHS. I know you're looking for AM2, but if they are the same maybe this will help.

Description: I've clamped the massive durable hunk of metal (IHS) part of the CPU (not the delicate breakable PC board) in a machinist vise. Then clamped the machinist vise upside down in a bench vise. This solidly holds the CPU for the delicate slicing operation. As opposed to holding it in one hand while the other tries to cut off your first hand, er, cut off the IHS! Cut one side, then unclamp the machinist vise, rotate the CPU and make the next cut, and so on.

I realize that not everyone will have a machinist vise laying around, but other similar small vises would work.

Hope this helps. Oh, my temps lowered by 5C under load.

Thanks for the input, REP+

One thing that you don't need to worry about is crushing the core - as long as you have a bolt through heatsink, give it all the pressure you can Just be sure to put little strips of electrical tape over all the capacitors.

Well, I shouldn't say give it all the pressure you can just yet - I've always used 939 Opties, new 3600's are on 65nm so I'm not sure how much they can take in comparison. If the die size is similar though, it shouldn't be any different.

heat up the cpu so the solder becomes soft and then pop the top.

basically just put some thermal paste in a pan and put the cpu on it, heat the cpu with the stove and i guess use a razor to cut before it gets cold.

I saw someone do that on a C2D
