New Delid Die Mate tool!

Recommended Posts

Great little tool for making delliding a piece of cake, and about as safe as it can be.

Genius but 90 Euros is steep.....although if you want 100% safety that it will work then probably worth it.

It is steep Mark. I didn't realise it was that expensive. I think that's about £60.

 

Double a reasonable price.

 

For a one off dellid way too much.

I think that considering a borked delid costs you the full price of cpu, this actually is something I would buy.  You could charge your friends $20 to delid theirs, and recoup some of that money!

Silicon Lottery is an option:    http://siliconlottery.com/products/delid

 

I recently purchased a delidded 6700K from them for an upcoming build.  If you have a CPU already, you could send it to them; another advantage is that most if not all CPUs they sell (excluding X99s) get delidded, so they have plenty of experience doing the procedure.

That's awesome. And even at that price. As someone that used a razor--and did it successfully--this is quicker and with very little risk.

 

What I would expect, though, are copycat products. This guy has essentially just milled out some aluminum with proper casts, dimensions, holes, etc. and I would expect lots of others with access to CNC machines to follow suit. I hope for his sake, he's filed a patent both in the EU and/or the U.S.

I notice they "seal the IHS back in place". Trouble is though, it's not just the "type" of TIM Intel used that's the issue, it's the depth of TIM as a result of the adhesive used to attach the IHS. This is why it's better not to reattach the IHS, rather let it float. For this reason a dellided CPU from them may not be as cool.

 

Great that they offer this service though, but for me I'd rather do it myself and know it's done right, by hand or with the tool this thread refers to.

To be honest, my mind drifted toward tools for the procedure a while back. I came up with a pliers type device with blades, designed so it couldn't cut in too deep. Not as good an idea as the Die Mate though.

 

 

It is expensive, but I guess that if Intel continue to manufacture CPU's with TIM rather than solder it could get quite a bit of use over the years.

This is a device that is a perfect application for a 3D printer.  The plastic will be strong enough to handle the pressure and you can print a new one if the design of the chip changes.
