Beginners Guide: How To Install / Remove an Intel Socket LGA2011 CPU

Delidding your Intel Haswell CPU - PCSTATS.com Delidding your Intel Haswell CPU
Mon, Aug 25 2014 | 10:47AM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Being that I have had much experience with naked die cooling from back in the days when AMD still shipped their CPUs without heat spreaders, I was certain that I was up to the task to handle direct die cooling of my Intel 4770K CPU in conjuction with the MSI Die Guard. It did work for a little while. I saw major decreases in running temps, upwards of 10-20C with much better temperature consistency across the cores. Being the tinker I am, I decided to see if I could get better temperatures with different water blocks - thats where the problems began. On my next system boot, one or two of my cores jumped to 100C under load even with the CPU at stock clock settings."
