What do you think of this video?



It seems very risky to me. Also how he handles the CPU is nerve-wracking. Is this the reason Haswell processors get sooo hot?


PS. I am not planning on doing this, I have a SB i5 2500k OC'ed to 4Ghz at very cool temps.

Delidding is very common, and the way he handles the chip is perfectly fine.

Would it not be a lot safer to use a heatgun rather then risk cutting a track, or scratching the die with a blade? 

If you're delidding, use this method.



This violence against CPU's disturbs me.
