Anyone in Melbourne sells a DELID TOOL or can DELID a 7820x?
I'm waiting for my rocket tool to turn up but alas I'm in Sydney.
I may sell the tool after I delid my chip with all the cleaning gear and liquid metal etc if you are keen ?
Nobody seems to have one, i want to avoid buying one, but looks like i will need to.
Yeah, same boat though a member here PM'd me so here's hoping I'll be able to use his this weekend.
Can't wait to pop the cherry on my 8700k.
Do you HAVE to reseal the IHS after applying the liquid metal?
I have only ever glanced at delidding threads/posts. Been too afraid to do it till now.
15 degrees is awesome, especially with our Australian summers.
I note that some cover the little caps/conductors with nail polish etc. I have a big roll of Kapton film.
What is the best tool for the job. Happy to pay $$$$
I done mine last night worth about 12c-14c
My 7700k dropped over 30 degC. I say over as at 4.8ghz on prime I was hitting 99 deg, after delid I'm now at 5ghz and go no higher than 69 degC. Gaming sits 57-60.
I want to delid a stock 7700 (non-k), no overclocking at all.
What would you get on a stock chip as far as improvements?
15c-20c drop in temps, you'll be able to set your hs/f speed to silent and never have it ramp up.
I am in need of a tool to delid my 7900X
i can boot 5Ghz 1.3V and works fine in windows, but when benching hits 100degres. (have 2x360mm 60mm rads).
I dont want to buy one either, but may have too, maybe a few of us can chip in>?
i have 4 7700ks (one i have now by far the best), and all of em dropped 20+ degress with a delid.
No. The socket will clamp it all together. As long as you're keeping it in the one mobo and not swapping CPUs in and out its perfect without re-gluing.
You just need to be careful when securing it in the socket otherwise it will push the IHS off to the side as you close the clamp.
Sorry to hijack/jump on the bandwagon - but would be interested if someone in Melb had a tool for my 4670k?
I've ordered some ultra off ebay, was planning on trying the vice method.
4670K @ 4.3ghz/1.3V under H100i hitting 90 degrees on prime...
Vice method is fine, just line it up and take your time.
Just purchased the Rockit 88 tool to delid my 8700K. Hope I dont destroy it. Was trying to find the Delid Die Mate 2, but cannot find it anywhere.
Hopefully the Rockit 88 is up to the task. Maybe I should do the 6700k first and see how it goes?
Trouble is, I have a hard tube custom loop and it is a pain in the bum to pull down.
Great i look forward to hearing your experience. I am tempted to just by the Die Mate 2 from Caseking.de
Yep i know the feeling with hard tubing, luckily my main rig has a soldered IHS and the chip that i want to delid is a rig in the works.
Unfortunately Caseking.de is out of stock. No ETA. Tried buying some of the UHU high heat silicone from them and when setting up the account, could not select Australia as the country. Got it off ebay instead.
Oh how annoying! Well if you are in melbourne, would you be open to a loan and some cash your way? You wouldn't even need to give it to me, as it wouldn't take that long to do.
When you are done with it ofcourse
Found this bad boy, haha
I gave up looking and just did mine in a vice (edge of heat spreader on one jaw and pcb against the other jaw, ie cpu at a slight angle) and she popped open in a few seconds no issue.
StreekG, unfortunately I am in Sydney. Sorry. Waiting to hear on the shipping yet. Ordered some UHU High Heat Silicone from Ebay, but UK based seller returned my payment last night, "the warehouse said all the packets are damaged and leaking" yeah right.
Just tried ordering through Amazon UK.................
I just use RTV silicon from an engineering shop, or I'm sure Bunnings has it too.
If you want red or blue there are good auto options too (that'd be kind of obvious for an RMA haha)!
