Uhm, you what...? I see you removed the IHS, but delidded? What did you do to the poor CPU! :shok:Purchased a 4770K... I delidded it.
I hope you did not used such brutal tools on gentle CPU, but on something else.Yes I used the hammer & vice method again. You shouldn't be using plywood though as it is just too soft. Took way more hits than it should have. But it was all I had laying around.
Can't say I've ever had to recap well anything. If I had to I can easily peel this stuff off. Then reapply later on.Replacing caps on such beautifully moded card won't be easy, tough...
I would first replace the caps and then apply the progrip spray

The IHS should come off easily, when you cut off the rubber around and THEN heat the IHS from bottom with small hobby torch to the melting point and thein it come off itself.
You using any other method?
And I would like to ask - where is picture of the core? I wonder how well you managed to lap the core of the CPU :biggrin:
