Delid tool, slide the re-lid press tool out through the bottom-left corner. Micro cracks occur after about 200 to 300 thermal cycles. The Delid Die Mate and the Delid Die Mate Extreme are two different models and the Extreme version is not available yet. This is one guy soldering operation. While delidding can be great and bring down temps, allowing for things like higher overclocks, just plan on replacing the compound you use once a year. Delidding got really popular in late 2011 with the launch of the Ivy Bridge microarchitecture which was the third generation of processors based on the 22nm manufacturing process developed by Intel®.
They just got my Cpu in the mail yesterday, so we'll see how solid and quick they are. Well, if you do a clean job of it, it doesn't necessarily mean voiding the warranty. Easy to apply, easy to delid again later and the big plus is only a very slight increase in temps. Before delidding I ran Cinebench several times and the average max temperature was 90°C. The conditions of his testing consisted of the chip clocked at 3.
It's utterly stable through several tests and it's been several months without one tiny hiccup. I guess all those surfaces have some kind of oxide layer, or maybe they get one when the lid is heated to ~180°. Honestly, I would pay extra money to get pre-applied high quality thermal compound. Room temp was 32C maintained. To do this, apply a small dot of paste in the middle of the silicon, and then spread it, either with a paste spreader, or an old business card or credit card you no longer use. Much like you would install a processor into a. The main tool itself is fairly small in size and can be stored away easily.
The second one Rockit 88 Delid Tool looks especially cool, I'll likely order one. It should be finger tight as well. But please note that we will not be held responsible for any failed removal operation that resulted in a death of the computer component! Once done, you will see a square space that fits the i7 7700K perfectly. Apparently it's better to use shearing force to remove the solder from the cpu, rather than shimming and prying it open. Another set of technologies improve the browsing experience and personalize it. Because it is weak plastic crap.
The myth that this isn't somehow possible has been debunked, so it's just a matter of figuring out how to do it. Only on the die, protecting the surface mounted components around with a thin layer of transparent nail polish and let it dry - this is far the best method. Precision is of utmost importance here otherwise the risk of damaging the chip would be higher. As stated, there really isn't a need. I've seen it done on YouTube; a lot of people report significantly lower temperatures when they replace the default thermal compound with more effective thermal compound such as Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra. Do not apply a lot of pressure, let the glue do its job.
When the package heats and cools it warps, causing stress. Intel makes good chips but cuts corners in the wrong places. It was the only way i got the glue to snap. Delidding without the need for a vice and hammer, and of course no razors. It took about 2 minutes per side but was very easy and I felt confident I would do no damage. However, if you felt the need to secure it, I would use something non-permanent and non-electrically conductive such as rubber cement. Take all of this apart, and get a good understanding of just how this works.
I'm using a i7-7700K which I'm overclocking to 4. We like to glue ours back down. Indeed i asked James with the contact button on the Rockit shop but, no reply yet i guess because of the holidays maybe? Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated. We have just tried to explain what delidding is, what it is good for and how it is done. I hoped for the best, perhaps this was only cosmetic damage. The Extreme one is clearly physically larger, so I would be surprised if it did not cost more. Please select and accept your settings before you continue.
The tool is made out of machined Delrin, and some lettering on the front mentions the company and product name and reassures you that this is indeed painless and easy. This calls for better and more efficient thermal conductance. A tiny drop would be just enough to hold it in place as you drop it in the socket and clamp it down. So, if you are familiar with the basics, we can move ahead and talk about delidding. Keep going until you feel a drop in resistance to the disc's rotation, at which point the de-lidding process is complete. I used the expired credit card in addition to it.
These functional cookies are required to use the site and complete purchases. This review will include the thermal performance of the chip before and after delid. Take your time with it. Please remember that behind every poster is a human. The RockIt Cool has provided three long screws with black heads and an Allen key. Why wouldn't it stick to Nickel-plating? Just because the car could technically come from the factory with a turbo doesn't mean the manufacturer thought it was a good idea to spend the extra 5c on thermal paste and give you a decent product. I think the hottest it ever got was 82C on one core for a couple of seconds, but usually it sits somewhere between 75-80 during stress testing, and about 60-70 in games.
