They will rma delided ones ... Gary, exactly how did you do the delid?

A single edge razor blade.

Permatex won't re-attach the severed wires or separate the ones that are touching.

No, but it will put the IHS back on and look just like Intel's job.

Without numbers on the IHS, I can't start a RMA. The box numbers won't work. Clicking a link on Intel's site for info got me an error saying the service isn't available, 404.

Examining the delidded 3770K I saw a gouge in the PCB with copper showing through. The corner of my razor blade cut into it and cut or grounded out several of the tiny copper traces embedded in the PCB. Can't take a pic, the area is about 0.2mm or less but I can clearly see the copper traces under magnification.

Dammit!

Looking back, the gouge is visible in the original pic.

Thanks Paul and Ryan, I was a dumb ass for trying it in the first place. Fortunately it was a used one I got for $150 so not out $340 anyway.
Steve gave me a number to call and check on RAM with Intel.

Did you happen to get a pic right after you pried the lid off ? Love to actually see what Intel has under there, the condition and amount of the paste, or lack of.
