Where about are you mate?
Jeez I haven't seen you around since the iiGames days. I'm in Osborne Park.
Haha yeah its been a while, i might have to hit you up at some point and get this chip delidded
Anyone in Brisbane doing this? I was going to buy a tool but a small rental fee may be more palatable .
I'm still deciding on final hardware to buy but it will likely be an 8700k to go on a Z370 taichi (If I can get one) or the Asus ROG Apex board. Pain in the arse pulling my water cooling apart but worth doing once
Speak to Headin2001 - he will be able to sort you out.
Where abouts are you located ?
i actually was going to 3d print the delid tool anyways
I also know of 1 other person in brissie doing delids
I have a tool, but I am in QLD unfortunately.
Anyone can do delidding in Sydney?
Hi mate you still happy to help in Melbourne? Got a 7700K that needs opening.
Would be grateful if anyone in Melbourne can help me delid my 3770K too. I know it's an oldie but would really like 5GHz from it, right now it can do 4.7GHz with 1.26V but temps are holding me back more than anything
I can help you out. I have no clue if my tool will do a 3770K, but if it doesn't fit, happy to go the old fashioned way with a 3770K. The PCB is much thicker, the older chips are safer to do. Not sure if anyone even bothered making a tool for them, they are easy. I'd use a blade on it. I've never killed a chip, done plenty of 3770K's with a blade. All care but no responsibility of course.
Happy to have you sit and watch it done if you like. Check the link in my sig.
Your hopes of 5GHz are quite possibly attainable, your volts are low for a 3770K at 4.7, you just need decent cooling.
Thanks mate appreciate it! I'll be in touch next week, happy to stay and watch and learn a few things in the process
You should be able to do a 3770k with a vice only method.
You won't have any issues with the 3770k in your tool I reckon. I delidded a Core 2 e7200 for shits and giggles in a rockit tool, that thing is pretty fat. Worked great
You'll hit 5 easy. Here is my delidded 3770k at 1.36v LinX stable under a supreme hf cu block + liquid ultra. Board is a z68 extreme7 gen3. Razor method
Some more recent delids I've done -
Or just send it to me and it'll be cheaper
Your success at reaching 5GHz really depends on the chip, I wouldn't guarantee his chip is capable. His volts are low at 4.7 though, so I believe its quite possible.
I have a G3930 I did for shits and giggles. Can't be overclocked but after a few hours under Prime I think it hit a max temp in the low 30's from memory
In my experience chips that work well on low voltage dont overclock that well in the upper realms, the chips that need a bit more voltage generally end up going higher. Makes cooling a challenge but the higher vCore chips love it when you slam in 1.35 1.4 sky's the limit (well cooling is the limit)
