Made a video of how I delid and apply liquid metal and copper IHS to Intel CPUs. I posted this in my FS thread, but figured I make this post as it could be helpful to others as a guide.
My tripod is broken and didnt realize it pointed down further than I was wanting so the framing isnt great.

I did a delid about a month ago. It was fun, and it worked! I got the copper ihs since I was already buying the rockit delid/relid tool. My 6700K now sits at 4.7ghz@1.325v, temps are in the 60s. Pushing 4.8 is doable, but voltage skyrockets to 1.40v. No way I can get 4.9 without exceeding the 1.44v which is supposedly my mb max.

Thanks for posting. I just bought it and plan to delid my 8086K to reduce temps and keep it locked at 5 Gs.

I have an i9 9900k and I'm trying to get up the motivation to follow through on a build that had taken me WAY too long to complete. Have forum members found delidding gives a huge performance gain in terms of heat or is this more for the advanced overclockers?

I can't speak to 9th gen, but my see my post above for my 6700K. Its helped keep heat down for a nice OC. Probably not needed at stock, but it also depends on what cooler you have too. I have a Noctua NH-D15

At stock you would only drop a few degrees. When overclocking you can see anywhere from a 10-30C drop.

I delided my old 7820x awhile back god damn did it make a huge difference. Just reglued the stock heat spreader with LM and dropped my temps by 20deg. It didn't give me more OC room but it got my temps down to low 70s compared to 90s at 4.8ghz. I wasn't comfortable going any high due too how much voltage was needed.
