Sooo, I have no problem doing it, but there are flashbacks to the time I fried a socket A chip because the shim was off center...

Also, I really don't feel like ordering all the supplies for one de-lid if Silicon Lottery can do it and I know it is done right.

Then head to silicone lottery and insert credit card and happy overclocking.

overclocking boards should just give us a different retension mount so we dont need to reapply the IHS and can just run the die naked.

I bet you would of gotten even better gains, and much lower deltas from idle to load if you didnt have the chunk of metal between the die.

It’s about time. Thermals have been the limiting factor for how many years now?
