Ihs On P4 Is A No Go...

Well i had a P4 Socket 478 Northwood 3.2 which i tried removing the IHS on a couple hours ago... Everything went well but when i pried off the core the IHS had half the core still on it... Turns out the P4 core is pretty much attached to the IHS... F00k.... I have no funds to replace it....

 

F000k.... The chip was a 30 cap SLW6G... F000...

 

FYI... some northwood's IHSs are attached by some sort of glue...

i think heating it up really hot with a hair dryer makes it possible to remove it without damaging the core......never tried it myself, but that works with every other situation like this i have come across

I heard placing the processor in a freezer (in a sealed bag naturally) helped to make the adhesive brittle & easier to remove (haven't tried it though)... doesn't help you out though dude... sorry for your loss :(

 

I guess it's important to remember... only 'mod' what you can afford to lose <_<

 

That's why I experiment with Retro gear... I won't lose any sleep over a deceased K62 ;)

 

BTW that's a beast of a Heatsink/fan(s) combo you got there... looks like a small block V8 :lol::P

If you would have searched it, you would have found out I already tried this 2 months ago and had that happen.

i did read up on yours....it was a presscott which autmaticly comes stock with some sort of adhaesive, mine was a northwood which i bought back in 2003...

 

BTW: my point beingthat even though it was a northwood it still had the same kind of adhesive...

Too bad. I don't really feel sorry for you, should have just left it alone when it worked fine. Perhaps you'll learn the value of just having things work, without constantly tinkering with stuff.

My point was that supposubly prescotts shipped with an adhesive while Northwoods has just plain old thermal grease... Though apparently mine had the same Adhesive...

Are we not all here to try to push the envelopes of our technilogical beasts? I say we should be giving support to the pour man in his time of mourning, not lecturing on how he tried to make what he had better! Is this not the american dream? lol

I just like having things to work properly, and if I can overclock some that's even better. I don't really set out to risk breaking my hardware to overclock a little more.

Obviously, I enjoy OC'ing and tweaking cos I joined this site, but I'm not gonna seriously dismantle my hardware to OC some more.

 

Anyway, sorry to flame you. My mood hasn't been the best today. :blush:
