    Good, that overclocking guide is good. That is exactly the way I have my bios set up, as do several others on the overclocking forum. It works.

    I would only delid if it wasn't my main rig, and I was having severe heat issues.......I qualify for neither. That guide though, it's good stuff!

    I agree Kelly. Would you hazard a guess of how many times it has been linked in this thread?

    @kbrady1979, yes you're right, to delid you must have severe heat issue but i guess i am making a choice now. I do not mind is my main rig, I've already Oc'ed well on it.

    BTW, I just unmounted my Core i5 K to check if i do have the right razor blade....
    The one i've got is too thick, i gotta better go to a barber blade one, those are thin enough, though!

    Br careful NoN, if I am not mistaken Tw33k and I think Gary Britton bot ruined a chip doing it. They both hit the die or scratched the PCB as I recall. It completely ruined the chip. So, be very careful. it's not for the faint of heart. I would advise you , if you can't afford to replace it, don't try it.

    I remember that, I do believe Gary(Britton) hit the PCB with a razorblade

    Found them...lol (I think)

    Yeah, I remember now that Gary's 3770k scratching the pcb....

    Tw33k only half succeeded at it, and only one dimm was working ?!? (BTW, no post from him since 21 Apr 2013).

    Edit:
    On my Core i can see the black glued stuff they have used coming out in a little bead, Might try to use that bead for the blade not to scratch any..

    Good luck and be careful NoN. I guess you will be after a 3770K if it goes wrong. Nice excuse for an upgrade lol.

    Thanks Paul,

    Nah, i do not think i will go with an i7 K...if..., could have been but my motherboard is not enough high-end made for such cost...By the time they should have fixed that i5 K with a revision.
    Do cross fingers actually.

    Damn, is very tight & strong made that black glue stuff...i can understand some rip off with that blade. Might it had goes harder with time and heat?!?

    Several times! It's a great guide and I've never known anyone to follow it that didn't have great results.
