because we're in a world where QuickSilver doesn't exist?

8700K, I guess.

8700K, the i9-7980XE and other 7th gen x299 chips have SMDs which makes them tricky to de-lid safely even though they're not soldered. Soldered chips like the 9th/10th gen LGA 1151/1200 are easy to delid.

For 9th/10th gen just use a quality deliding tool.
It is really no harder than an 8700.
Only drag is you have to remove the solder but using a solder remover like Quicksilver makes it really easy although a bit time consuming as opposed to just having to clean off paste.
