    And that's why I am reading [H]ard|OCP - computer enthusiasm taken to the extreme!! Never seen such a devotion as here. Holly shit, you nearly took apart and reassembled this bastard motherboard just to try this idea! Hats down!

    Glad you didn't have another cut with that scarry knife :dead:

    Interesting seeing the process you had to go through to get this working. (y)

    Do you guys like this format of video coverage? I am thinking of doing more of these "along for the ride" type videos, instead of shooting a monologue to cover what we did after it is over. The downside is of course these can get rather long. This one earlier this week went out to 44 minutes, however we covered all the basics in the first 15 minutes or so.

    I like the format, some editing to trim them down will help I just skipped a few times to get the whole story, but I'm not doing this any time soon, if I were I'd be watching all of it and taking notes :)

    CPU looks naked and afraid to me :) but yea I liked the video. Nice to see what all you had to go through to get it to work. Can't wait to see the temps.

    Post the whole vid and have an edited one with just the important moments so people could choose what to watch. Hell even do some live shows type of things and give away some gear to get higer views form time to time

    Harder to watch videos than read an article when I'm, ahem, "working". ;)

    I agree with both of these sentiments. For most things I still prefer the good old written article with pictures, but there are some things that are difficult to show in written form, and for those a video can be pretty neat.

    I doubt Kyle is going to become PewDiePie any time soon... :p

    Should clarify, I think for these type of scenarios actually showing how it's done video is great; appreciate that the results go in chart/article form as that is what I consume. If I was actually going to do this myself, I would appreciate the video.

    [H] makeup videos?

    I loved it, for something like this, if I were going to attempt it myself. All the little nuances a person can pickup from a video like this is great.

    Videos this detailed would have saved me some broken hardware back in the early days when I was first starting to build my own.

    Now that I'm off work and I've had a chance to see it, the video was interesting and extremely informative. In the article about removing the lid I was asking myself why I would ever want to put it back on after going through the trouble and risk of taking it off. Well, now I know *exactly* why I would want to.

    (I did not watch the video yet)

    Kyle, are you more concerned about the possibility of crushing/chipping the core/die now that it's nekkid?

    The format is great. I definitely dig the 'along for the ride' aspect because, for those that attempt anything like this or the delidding, it helps to see what kind of expected/unexpected problems come up during the procedure.

    As mentioned earlier, the videos can be trimmed down a tad bit but I wouldn't go overboard with it. If I had to give one potential suggestion, I'd say edit in an intro to summarize the subject in maybe a few minutes but continue to show the actual process as you do afterwards. This eliminates the messy two video solution.

    Simply having watched both videos from beginning to end has already made me feel way more at ease when it comes to potentially trying out processor 'modding' like this. I remember my first build with those exposed core AMDs and just installing the stock heatsink had me shitting bricks. I like that I can see someone else do these things and know that these modern components aren't necessarily as fragile as they once were.

    Yes. But not as much like back in the TBird days.

    Oh yeah. CPU has taken a lot of abuse in the last week.

    Great work. I like the videos and the least amount of editing too. Its inspiring me to get off my ass and do some myself. Maybe if my day job wasn't so demanding. I subscribed btw, not sure if that helps or not but its rare that I do on youtube :)

    Loved the video and being "along for the ride". This is the first OCP stuff I've seen on Youtube but I'm relatively new. Keep it up I'd love to see more.

    I think the "along for the ride" version is much better for this type of subject; where you're going fairly in-depth on a technique or a detail.
    This isn't a product review, so I don't see the value in spending a lot of time editing or producing a polished video.

    In this particular case, you're showing the process you went through to achieve success.
    That's the important part, so I think the length is less of an issue.

    For product reviews, the edited, post-review monologue style makes more sense.

    The big benefit I see for the "along for the ride" version from your perspective: There would usually be less production needed, since you're not doing a scripted video.

    I like the show as you go format. It is fun to see the thought process and "engineering" that goes into something like this! Keep them coming!

    To echo the sentiments of others, while I have a preference for written articles, I found the video to be extremely informative and actually fun to watch.

    It's also a new (well, newish) way to engage with the community and potentially reach out to more members/viewers. I think part of the reason channels like LTT and Jays2cents are so popular is that the viewer feels more connected to both the content (the tech being covered) and the personalities of the hosts. It's not for everyone, but I would much rather watch a no nonsense video from HardOCP than worry about whether Linus was biased by writing a paid review.

    I liked the nonchalant "oh this socket is in the way, lets cut it up". I'd totally watch more hardware abuse video tutorials lol. Seriously this is awesome and thanks for risking destroying a piece of modern hardware. Really curious if it lowers the temps extremely or makes it worse somehow.

    LOL...that's great! I enjoyed the format. I REALLY enjoyed the failures. It makes me feel like less of a newb with all the failures I've run into during OC installs. Thanks.

    One word of constructive criticism: A video like this would really be improved if you kept upping the volts/freqs until there was a huge white flash, a "bang", then flames. That'd be the way to go... ;)

    Did Kyle say 2600 in the beginning instead of 7600? Had to check the date to see if I was watching an old vid. lol

    Can't wait to do this myself if the results are worth it =D And I agree with c3k, we need more flames, explosions and heavy metal.

    You would fall over if you knew how much pay for play there is in the world of YT and hardware. There is a lot of it that is not tech journalism, but rather a paid commercial.

    Yeah I did. Hence asking for some slack on these as these are totally unscripted and just verbalized train of thought as I go.

    I've been toying with direct die cooling for about a month now.
    My water block overhangs the socket as you found, this is the only stumbling block for me.
    The 1151 socket is already weak, I dont fancy making that worse as it will be difficult to pass on when I'm done with it.
    The shim costs almost nothing though, I almost pressed buy a few times.
    Damn you Kyle, I can see it happening now!

    Used tape instead since I did not have any rubber risers sitting around perfectly cut to do so. ;)

    Really digging the recent videos. Unscripted is fine. Nice to hear the troubleshooting steps.

    Good feedback from you guys. When we do these, I know they get long, I will likely throw in a summary towards the end and leave a "Skip to X:XX for a summary" in the description.

    I enjoyed both of these videos. Thank you for risking your equipment for science! I hope you get some great naked results.

    I like how this video turned out, loved the trouble shooting doing and the fact that these videos non scripted is great, it really takes you along for the ride. (y)(y)
    but when you started "shimming" up the CPU with tape I could'nt help thinking it would have made no difference, seeing the Z-height of the Core and Z-height of the socket where the same to begin with. (hey im no expert :) killed my 2700K delidding it) ;)
    Good thinking slicing the corners of the socket down in size, but I think you can remove the tape again, that naked core looks quite centered on the substrate.
    Cant wait to see if it makes a difference in temp's :)
