IHS Removal - Page 2

post #11 of 36
I'm pretty sure it works with all CPUs since the principal is the same. Maybe it works better with some than others, who knows, I will probably pop mine off here pretty quick.

Sometimes. But sometimes the IHS is glued to the core...and could crack something when you take it off. Look it up on google to be sure.

There. Done.

If your heatsink screws on....screw it on more....lol. It it clips on...shave the stands on the bottom of the bracket until the heatsink makes good contact.

Good luck man. 100% worth it. Especially for that CPU. My load lowered like 9C and idle lowered like 7C...
Dude you have to Stop saying How its so easy. It will not be easy for someone who has Never done it before and who is nervous about doing it..Personally if you are not confident then dont remove the IHS as you could ruin the Cpu if you are not confident and then thats money down the Drain..this is just my opinion here.

Only do it if you can afford to destroy your CPU. If your in the position where it would take you a looooong time to save for a new one dont bother. Better safe then sorry.

Intels are glued to the core and half the time they crack the cores. those are resisters under the IHS.

it IS easy! Have you ever done it?

I was scared the first time too! but now I'm not, cause I have seen how easy it is. I wouldn't do it to a P4 that has a glued on IHS, but for AMD, it's easy as cake.

You're pretty much guaranteed not to break it if you put it in the original foam and go very slow with the razor how I said it, and just keep the blade fro going deep.

Try it, and then tell me it's not easy...
