Reference For Die Size and to show no FIVR in the way.


Test Used:
Wprime1024 5.1ghz 1.48v

Before: 96C hit and failed within seconds (hard to tell what load after 2 minutes would have been probably 105+)
After: 78C Warmest core and passed

Under ln2 without Delid running XTU we are going postive temps at -145c hits 20c loaded.

So I would suggest everyone delid Replace TIM under IHS and then put IHS back on.

The PCB is thin and Ive heard of it breaking in a vice, so I would stick to razor. Press in on each of the 4 corners then do the sides last.

Vice method fail (not me lol)

Also would suggest if you plan to let the ihs float instead of resealing (so you can keep it fresh) loosen the hold down first so you arent forcing the ihs to slide forward under pressure, then tighten the screws after brining the lever down

Also although they look identical, seems that skylake's IHS is a bit heavier than devil's canyon. Kind of interesting

EDIT: some more experience

Here is a delid...


And Lap....Using A Clamshell to hold it freely as to not put any downward force in it besides its own weight.


Light Lap not even down to to the copper..Im sure there is very small concavity left which is fine I just want to lower the edges a bit.


And Inside Polish....

with really nice temps.


Small disclaimer this is in my basement. 21-22c idle temps, 19c ambient temp.

So the PCB is thinner then on Devil's Canyon and Ivy Bridge? Fewer layers? Vise only method might not be a good idea then.

Looks like a huge difference though in the Delta after delidding - comparable to the previous generations, if not bigger.

How does it sit in the socket?
Will ANY cooler still make contact without the lid?
or refit the lid with something GOOD in there?

Put something good in there is best, IHS is better than without and much safer.

Theres plenty to choose from!

Has anyone tried a copper plate/shim same thickness as IHS before? something nice and soft?
I havent really followd delidding much yet but plan for skylake later in the year

Ek have told me the naked ivy mounting kit should work on this cpu without sticking the lid back on.

Is there any reason other than safety not to put the IHS back on ? Shouldn't it be cooler WITHOUT putting the IHS back on, and just running direct to die ?

I've found it depends on the board.

I have two Z97's and the bare die mount on the EVGA throws a E55 code every time with more than 16GB and the Asus does not for some reason.

Wow The PCB is considerably thinner on Skylake. I used the Razor method on both of my Haswells so when my new processor arrives I should have no problem delidding it. It's absolutely ridiculous that we need to do this to flagship processor that is being marketed to the overclock community.

Thanks for the pics, Allen. It's not a surprise seeing the temp drop, and if Vcore is indeed not as big a limitation here then this makes Skylake a lot more interesting to me.

I don't suppose I could bug you to see if the IHS height or curve (concave/convex) has also changed vs Haswell?
