My mobo was so generous with the stock volts that a 4.8GHz overclock was pretty much same temps as stock. 4.8 @ 1.24V

Nice. Freebie.

Any simple guides around for basic/mild overclocks? I think the ASUS Bios/AI Suite software has a few click option for doing it, only got it yesterday, need to look into that.

Guides I've read are a bit too in-depth for me, don't need to push it, just a basic bump because why not.

This tool. Yes, it uses a vise. I have a special edition black+white version I don't know what colour his other stock is, but I think I'd have done well over a dozen chips using this tool and no problems as yet.

Unlike some of the fancy tools though, this one doesn't 'relid', ie it doesn't clamp the IHS down again after you have replaced the TIM and siliconed the IHS back on, which you want to do of course until it gets enough grab to work with safely. I use a stationery clipboard as a clamp, works very well.
Thanks for the recommendation. The most straightforward way to get one from me is to get it from this Ebay listing. I send them via priority post, which usually only takes 1-3 days around Australia. They're printed in solid ABS, and should be possible to use with the hammer method as well as with vices.

Just a bit of feedback, I successfully delidded my 7600k but the IHS didn't really fit in the tool properly, I had to use a file to clean it up a bit. Maybe this is expected with 3d printed stuff.
