IMHO the hammer vice method is the way to go. I have delidded 3 CPUs, two with the hammer vice method and it is by far easier and feels so much safer.


@zoob make sure you remove all the glue from the backside of the IHS. That is the problem that causes the higher temperature, not the TIM.

OK I take all I said back. I think it was mainly because I was chickens#17 and used Ceramique instead of Liquid Pro under the heatspreader.

Last night I put some electrical tape over the resistors and applied a light coat of Liquid Pro while I was moving some chips around.
Now have it at 40x100 1.23V 70C LinX (I think non-AVX) load on a HR-02 Macho with a single Scythe S-Flex F open air.

do I need to put the IHS back on top or can I leave it off and then put my cooler on top of that? or its too risky due to pressure break something?

forget the heat spreader, sub with copper shim stock that's thicker then HS by .005 inch

dante`afk yes you need a spacer between cores to keep proper tension with block

It is a good idea to use the IHS to prevent damage to the chip. It is possible to use certain water blocks and heatsinks w/o it if you are careful though.
