    If only you would do it straight... it kinda hurts my "premium" thing. To be fair, never delidded anything, so I have no idea how hard it is to align IHS correctly, but it looks like something what you would buy on aliexpress. Especially on b-rolls ;p

      delidding is easy. you really don't need the fancy tools, I've always just done it with a razor blade. been doing it for years, started with an athlon 245 and mercury (since gallium compounds weren't available back then) and have done it to every non-soldered chip I've gotten my hands on since. only messed it up once on a pentium 4 that turned out to be soldered, but that chip was free anyway. these days I'm using conductonaut, but the concept is the same, only difference is I don't need any hydrochloric acid for it.

    Now that they are soldering the IHS you kind of wish you didn't make that comment huh??? The soldered IHS can't be delidded now meaning we can't get the best performance possible due to low quality control on the IHS. It's almost mandatory now that you lap the IHS to decrease core to core deltas. We are seeing upwards of 40c deltas which sucks and lapping only fixes it so much. Gamersnexus lapping their cpu and did not see a huge difference but if the soldered IHS could be delidded and liquid metal applied without putting the IHS back there's a good chance of being able to overclock another 400-500mhz BUT WE CAN'T!!!! REALLY LINUS????? SOLDERED IHS!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    neat and all, but it's kinda pointless if it's covered by a heatsink or cooling block, unless you get a sticker that's a photo copy of the gold cpu to put on your tower to show what it looks like, but even then, what's the point?

    Intel should have done exactly what Linus did plus make the CPU with either a blue sub straight for Intel or a brown one for that retro CPU look. They should have also made that CPU the most baller consumer chip they could've made.

    You should have sanded down almost to the depth initially desired on the CPU lid. And then had it in graved and then gone through one more time with a quick sanding past to get some of the burrs off and then do that gold shit you do. Buuuut hell I'd buy what you made

    As an electroplater, have to say your brush plating technique more than sucks, must have taken ages to get a decent amp-hour count, but kudos for sticking at it, guess its easier with a specialist rectifier though.
