We all know that delidding is necessary to get good scores with Skylake, Kaby Lake and other CPUs.
I binned a lot of CPUs recently and tried to delid one of my best ones with a razor blade.
However I cut a little bit too deep and damaged the CPU. CPU only runs with 8 PCIe lanes now which is a pitty.
So I decided to create a little tool for safe CPU delidding - I call it Delid Die Mate.
The tool is pretty simple and is based on the vice method. However, CPU and heatspreader are secured inside the tool and can't move.
So no risk to damage any part of the CPU.
The whole delidding process takes about 1 minute with the tool.
In addition you can also glue the IHS back on with the Delid Die Mate. So should be pretty handy for Skylake benchers.
