    Exclamation Intel Core i7 - DO NOT REMOVE IHS!

    The core is soldered onto the IHS and trying to remove will destroy the cpu when it separates the layers. There is also small resistor packs around the core that would get broken on razor insert.

    Confirmed.

    Havn't that been the case with Intel cpu's for a long time? It's certainly possible to remove the IHS even though it's soldered, just a bit more risky

    Looks like a TIM change, its a gold square.

    Maybe a blow torch will do the trick, the resistors are completely around the core.

    post some closeups of that dead gem charles

    i cant recall who removed the first IHSs off of intel chips here but it involved sliding 4 razors in each corner to create some pressure to separate the IHS and PCB and just add heat source on top to heat up the core and it should just pop off

    Sanding it down should still be possible, I guess. Not something I want to try in any case.

    Pictures please. And I agree--the sanding-for-6-hours method should allow this to be successful.

    Why spend that much time sanding.. just use a mill and nick off a small quantity where you know there isn't a core and then measure the thickness of the IHS. Then use the mill and mill out nearly all the IHS and then sand off the remaining

    crazyxp did it first. use nevrdull to get the indium off. I'm pretty sure you can remove nehalem ihs no problem, like the q6600. The q6600 had smds too, and people did it. Just have to more careful.

    I think most of you mislead the fact that that's a q6600, which was sended down, and not an i7...
