    Cool e4300 IHS Removed!

    Did it today!

    Suprisingly there is no solder stuff (dont know exact word) between E4300 core and IHS. So removing IHS i didnt have to "boil" CPU, just cut rubber edges and pull IHS away....
    Intel is using thermal greace instead.

    Removal gave me 8-10Celsius on aircooling.

    Now i can reach above 3650mhz easily. Im using aircooling.
    Havent tested maximum fsb yet. but ran few tests with 3690mhz

    Heres Pic of my E4300 vs Celeron D 356, both with IHS removed:

    NB! Enjoy removing IHS of your CPUs! BEWARE THAT REMOVING IHS VOIDS WARRANTY!!! If you´re not familiar with removing tools and you dont have lots of patience and steady hands,then DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!!!

    hey hey pal, i didn't make fun of you, sorry my bad english (chilean here :mrgreen. Removing that from the e4300 was really impressive

    I don't know anybody who have removed the IHS and maintained his cpu alive.

    haha I totally missed that or else I would have posted the same thing. It didn't sound like you were making fun at all. Was totally misinterpretted in my opinion. But anyway, great great find that there was no solder. Good to hear

    OK. I misunderstood your post m8. Sry

    Removing IHS is not that hard really. It just takes a lot of time and patience.


    Thanx for your reply. Im feeling a lot better now

    Best thing for cutting rubber edges is razor like this

    http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...%3Den%26sa%3DN
    You can see how far under IHS this rubber goes and how deep you have to cut on the picture in first post.
    Its best because its ultrasharp and also soft. Using this will not hurt cpu pcb if cutting. I also used this.
    Second thing is to thind very very thin screwdriver or knife. Put strong elastic tape or credit card between CPU PCB and screwdriver. Slip Screwdriver gently under IHS and turn it until IHS comes apart

    Be very careful with CPU PCB! Breaking powerlines on it is very easy!
    I broke my Celeron D like this.

    Good luck!

    So what method did you use to remove the IHS anyway?

    Was there thermal epoxy on the core? if so then how'd u get it off?

    I would attempt 2 take off the IHS but i'm always worried i'll crush the core with the heat sink.

    Its good to heat the IHS just like removing IHS whats connected with solder.
    I did like that.
    I belive Core is connected with epoxy. E4300 IHS is not connected with epoxy. Its thermal greace. But its best to heat the IHS, removing it because thermal greace get softer if hot.


    Excuse my bad english. I hope you understand me.

    Don't leaver it off...you damige the traces on the top of the PCB it's how i killed my P4...

    Use 4 blade and once all the rubber is cut over lap them, they will have a spring effect, gently aply a little heat, lighter for this cpu perhaps.

    I heard Kentsfields have core soldered to IHS, I believe there was a pic somewhere... does anybody know if E6600 has solder or thermal grease?

    I am pretty sure the E6600 is soldered. It is either all L stepping Allendale CPUs or just the E4300 that has grease AFAIK.
