    vice method is the safest way to do it, sans a custom made delid tool. you might be thinking of the first vice method where people actually whacked the cpu with a blunt object, the new method is pretty much noob friendly

    to knock off 10-20C and because no one else had put it on YT yet. he is begging for subs and views, trying anything he can. theres another vid on his channel talking aboot it.

    It's already soldered lol. It's like dirk diggler getting a penis extension no? It'd be one thing to go naked but he just re-tim'd it with clu.

    You keep typing 10-20c drop. Got a link to this? How is CLU going to out transfer actual metal to metal transfer? Btw, are you referring to der8auer in regards to temps?

    re-read what I said then man....
    I said that the parts after the 10-20c drop applies, epeen, desperation, needing views etc.
    if it was soldered the drop wont be as much. I was agreeing with you!

    ps: the 10-20c drop is the average people are seeing on de-lidded 6700/7700 etc, which are not soldered.
    heres a 7600k dropping 15+ after a de-lid and re-paste.

    ?? You're just implying a gain then? It's confusing/misleading man. Relidding enthusiasts chips for the level of danger is moronic. Even in der8auer's case he got an at best 4c average temp drop swapping to CLU. Yea, he was, am disappoint.

    You did though. That's why I asked why oh why... its nutty to replace the solder on a 6950x only to put the lid back on. As I wrote above, it'd be one thing if he went bare die but he just put the lid back on lol.

    I didn't realize that the 6950x was soldered and that the temp drop would be insignificant, so that part is void. everything else I said applies.

    Man, I hate Coolabratories Liquid Metal Ultra. That shit dried out on me on four different applications after six to eight months - a 3930K, 3920XM, and two 780Ms. It wouldn't be so bad if temps didn't increase and removing the dried out liquid metal wasn't a HUGE PITA.

    I've since gone to ICDiamond and now Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut and haven't looked back.

    Ahh
    Careful there

    This CPU is soldered (methinks, right?)

    People usually get like 5 degrees better Temps by removing the IHS compared to soldered
    Removing the IHS

    Only thing being problematic about solder could be that the IHS is not very even
    I remember having to lap my q6600 because of this

    Ahh
    K :D

    Dropped 15°C on my 6600k by delid and using Gelid.

    I don't see how temps could be improved on a soldered chip, unless it's like iron or something. Tin and silver are pretty good thermal conductors.


    The the "dry out" clu people, you obviously don't know what you're talking about. Barium doesn't dry out.
