De-Lid / Re-Lid Service - LGA 1151/1150
*Note* The processor is not included in the price, this is for the service only
What is Delidding?
The word "lid“ refers to the IHS on a CPU and therefore, in simple terms, delidding means removing the lid as well as replacing the stock TIM (Thermal Interface Material) from the die with a aftermarket TIM, the most popular being liquid metal.
Why would you De-Lid?
Most obvious answer would be to achieve lower core temps during full CPU load and idle temps, as well as to try and achieve higher overclocked processor core frequencies due to lower core temps.
- Is it safe? The De-Lid tool is very safe and we will take the utmost care in the procedure and tests involved.
- What TIM do we use? We use Coollaboratory Liquid Pro or Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut
- Do you clean and prep the Processor before and after? Yes, If you have chosen the option without or with the copper IHS we will clean the stock IHS regardless, we have found that cleaning the IHS and PCB gives a fraction of better results
- Do you glue the IHS back on the Processors PCB (Re-Lid)? Yes we use a clear adhesive compound we have found to give the best results ** Note** Due to shipping it's highly recommend to do so and we will not ship without relidding the IHS
- Do you test the Processor? Yes, the Processors will be tested before sending the order out, we will supply a printout of a 'before and after' result.
- When will I get my delidded Processor once the order has been placed? Once we have received the processor it will take 3 Working days for the procedure and testing
- What CPU's do we currently support? LGA 1151/1150 (Coffee Lake, Kaby Lake and Skylake)
- Does it carry a warranty? Due to removing the IHS from the PCB this will automatically void your warranty from the manufacturer. However we carry a warranty on our workmanship and if you experience problems that we can help with, we are happy to help
- What are the temperature improvements that I can expect? You can expect a 10 - 25°C decrease
