well I wanted to do mine, and I ruined it and had to buy another one. i was careful and one slip of the razor blade cost me $250 so If you can avoid it don't do it. I also bought cool labs liquid pro but haven't even opened it lol . I learned to be happy with 75c temps on a 4.4ghz oc since im not risking 250 again.

What exactly did you do? Sorry, just asking so I don't make the same mistake if I choose to do it.

it took alot more force to get the ihs off then I thought it would and I accidentally scraped the PCB and now the chip only runs in single channel memory. Yea i probably did the least amount of damage possible and still ruined it. My advice DON'T DO IT. Someone tried to warn me before hand on here and I didn't listen I wish I had.

Thanks for the video.

I was a bit confused on the topic before seeing the video.

No one but it is risking destroying a $300+ CPU, as in your quotes nicking the PCB can do it or the die can be pulled off the PCB. Usually that is more common on Sandy Bridge since the IHSs are soldered on.

I just killed my chip The blade slipped and I nicked the die twice. As soon as I heard the sound of crushing glass I knew what I'd done but I kept going to see how long it would take. It only took a minute to take the lid off, getting the glue off was the hard part. I just ordered a new one and next time I'll tape up the knife so it can only go in as far as it needs to. I'm confident it won't happen again

That's bad news Mark. Sorry to hear that buddy.

If you didn't do this, try running the blade around the IHS several times cutting a few thousands of a mm per pass. I did that here The CPU, a small journey but it was a CPU that would not be used again.

I'm using a knife with a paper thin blade that slides under the IHS pretty easily. Once the knife was in, I worked it through but put too much pressure and it slipped. I just taped up the blade and checked it against the dead chip and it'll work. Just have to wait til the weekend's over to get the new one

Oh! very sad....but you'd found courage to clean the thermal paste and the glue after this hard time.....

I wanted to test how the Liquid Ultra goes on so I applied a small amount (a real small amount) and painted the die and the top of the IHS with the little brush they include.
