Is it better to NOT delid an ivy chip if you are planing on extreme cooling methods?

Does Ivy i7s and 6 core Bulldozers have a cold bug?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah better to not delid. A few people got slightly better clocks out of their chips by doing it but they didn't live very long either so you're better off leaving that alone.

No cold bug on most Ivy and BD chips. Ivy has a CBB at around -100 - -120 that you will see sometimes, but you get around it with high bclk (105+) and once you're in OS you should be good to pull right down.
