It doesn't take much heat. The solder is soft and breaks free quickly. You'll have the IHS plate removed in 30 seconds or less if you apply the heat properly.

Trick is to heat it up quick right in the center and flip the plate off as quickly as possible. It's actually really easy if you can stay calm and steady handed.

like, precision metal cutting? I'm sure it's "possible", but most likely not recommended

Touch the core or any of the surrounding resistors just once, and you can throw it away.

Hey Shrimp, excellent guide!

I was thinking about giving this a try on my 965. Do you think it would be worth it considering the temps I'm running with the cascade?

Not sure if this was mentioned, what do you think about putting a thin film of water on the heat sink to help transfer the heat from the pins?

On cascade? Not sure the temps would drop much at all. Your about as cold as it gets without LN2.

Not sure about water on the pins to the heat sink. It's a good idea, but cooling the heat sink with the fan is ideal and works pretty well. I haven't lost any pins yet, but aware of the possibility. Perhaps the next one I do, I'll try a little water!

Drew, you know what temps you hit at the block as compared to what temps you hit on your cores? The answer to me would depend on how big of a shift you have there.

I read on overclock.net that chew doesnt recommend delidding thubans or bulldozers because they are really easy to destroy in the process and not worth the risk.

While I respect chew's abilities, that doesn't sound like something he'd say.
Take 'em off Shrimpy.

Kay. He really didn't say you couldn't. It'll just be a more delicate, time consuming procedure for success.

Man he mangled those cpu's up Scotty.

That's horrible.

The razors I use are so sharp and so thin, I can actually feel anything inside when I make an incision. Also from using these razors, I already have a good guesstimate how deep to cut.

It'll be a walk in the park for a vet de-lidder

Some of them guys use really thick razors. I tired it on an Athlon s939 some time ago and not only almost took a finger off, had to fight with the blade to go deep enough and make several passes.

The shaving razors are super thin and double edged. THat alone MAKES you pay attention and take sweet time and care. It's the type of blade that can make a cut and you'd never feel it until you actually saw it. Sometimes can make non bleeders that hurt like hell when you wash you hands.

To over come the second edge, I simply cut a long eraser down and insert one edge half way into the razor. This method can also be used to help with depth of the cut as well as protect you fingers. (This is my trade secret)

The solder melting part is just so easy in comparison. Just gotta have the right tools, that's all.

Shrimp--very nice job on the de-lidding of those CPU's. Have you done BD yet? or think you will in the future? IS it worth the de-lidding to gain that much in temp?
