For skylake x? 100 dollars for a one time use thing?
Bro when are you gonna figure out that I know what I'm talking about and stop questioning me? Do you enjoy being wrong or what?

I had a good one, not one of those cheap 3D printed ones, but it was loaned out and I don't think I ever got it back.

If the op does not take you up on your offer I will. I will even pay it forward. Jedi mind tricks needs to use it too.

Edit:

Just noticed you were the person the purchased my old Seasonic Platinum PSU, hopefully you are enjoying it.

I could also use one to borrow, if anyone is willing :)

If not, I'll roll the dice with the vice. I've got a tester i5-7640x I could run through first.

GET IN LINE! GTZ was saving my spot /s
On a different note (in case Nikado turns the rest of us down/it gets lost in the mail), PPCs has a Kaby Lake X delid tool, which should work for your i5; I wanted to try it out (~$20 to rent ~40 to buy), but I don't want to risk my Sky-X on it.

@Nikado7 I too would like to use it, really don't care where I end up in line (I'm fine being last). You coulda made a (very) small fortune loaning it out!

So Gunslinger, then gtz, then rhk, then jedi lol. I don't own any x299 stuff anymore so whoever has it owns it...so just keep passing it on to the next guy.

One very important thing if anyone doesnt know, X299 chips have about ehhhh, I'm gonna say 4x as much OEM glue on it as consumer intel stuff (8700k type stuff..) It is ridiculous. One very simple way I've found of scraping it off without any chance of damage is using chopsticks or the like.. put it on an angle and drag it on sandpaper to give it a really sharp angled edge and it will scrap it all right off and seems softer than the silicone so it can't touch it at all. I've done probably 10 this way and never had a problem. The rockit kit actually comes with one which is how I learned of it. But....X299 stuff has a lot of little transistors and crap so you do gotta be careful. 8700k type stuff doesnt have that and is a breeze.

And if you're doing it on that 7800X, its already delidded and liquid metal'd just a few months ago so should be good for years lol.

Its nuts to think someone who mighta built a somewhat budget 7640x x299 build could simply upgrade to a 10980xe. Or a 7940x 14 core beast lol. So damn versatile.
