A64 / Opteron Ihs Removal Guide

Recommended Posts

nice... more of my efforts to swing occ back to tech-related stuff rather than whining about boohoo issues have not been in vain! :lol:

Really nice guide, I think a mod should make this a sticky with a BIG DANGER in big bold words right before the title , I have a feeling a noob will try it on his cpu and . it up and then complain how the guide wasn't "clear" enough.

Hey! I take that as an insult!

 

And hard, REALLY nice guid, NOW I understand what you meant.

 

Maybe when I am less of a noob I will try it with the processor in my old computer, heh...

Very good, hardnrg darling :lol:

 

You are using the xp120, eh?

I've been reading that the clip-o types damage the core, as they have to be 'rolled-on' - how did yours go?

it's pretty much like having an athlon xp without the black circle foam things... you can sorta bring the xp-120 down so that when it touches the core it's meeting it flat so there's no pressure on the edge of the core or anything... it's actually a lot easier than trying to get the slk-948u heatsink on, because that chunk of copper just slides all over the place while you try to get the bolts in... even if you hold it!

good music! love D&Bass -

 

I should have taken a picture of mine, i decided to sand my IHS down with 2500 grit, and i got it to a mirror finish but the center is still silver and the rest is copper so i think it made it concave :( either that or it wasn't flat to begin with.. hard to say now.

 

i'm gonna do it!!!

Can I do the same to a pentium 4 as "target practice"?, is it more or less the same principles?

Can I also ask you thins Hardnrg, how much resistance did you basically meet, is it hard to cut or is it pretty soft to cut through (so I don't overdue the cutting power I put in).

for me, it was pretty much like trying to cut some cheddar with a bluntish kitchen knife... i've never changed the blade in the knife i used and i've had it for years... if you use a sharp knife or a razor blade it'll probably be a little easier to cut...

 

but i still reckon it's like some fairly hard cheese :D
