If only you would do it straight... it kinda hurts my "premium" thing. To be fair, never delidded anything, so I have no idea how hard it is to align IHS correctly, but it looks like something what you would buy on aliexpress. Especially on b-rolls ;p

Belt sander on table, fine sandpaper grit + water, slow speed = lapping done easily. Just hold the cover down on it with light pressure while it's running with equal pressure. It'll shine like glass.

Linus are you going to start selling aftermarket CPUs ?

Nice. But what's the point? I'ts going to be under whatever cooling block you get to use and in the case.... probably the reason why intel didn't do all the etching and stuff at first. the only thing that you get from that is using liquid metal instaed of intel's stock thermal paste which will obviously give you better thermal transfer at the cost of you warranty.

You should never lap back and forth, always a figure 8 pattern. helps prevent gouges and makes the end result more even.

too bad you can't see it under the heat sink... maybe intel figured people didn't want to pay for the appearance of something they'll never see.

The CPU Intel should have made: Ryzen

So what was the cost for this mod ? Is this something that could be a profitable venture for mass cpu upgrades. IE: like Cyrix was years ago. Oh snap, just answered my own question.

Andrew... Ru***un@BF?... Thanks for the old days!
Sry for the sh*te magnet that I have been and sadly, still am a bit nowadays.

Hopefully will be playing BF again in the future, I still run the same system tho...
1st Gen 1366 i7.

I hope you still fight those narly cheaters like you used to.

Thanks to LTT, L and A-Ru***un, Nice Video.

@Intel, Please step up and get back on the high-end worthy marketed designed boat.
The 12MB cache on that old 6Core, high freq and great heat dissipation made it great...

Please Intel, HIT IT!... and release CPU's with the above as highest end hardware again.
And across all ...please Incease bandwith/lanes, Cache and Ghz per core again.
(The highest Ghz per core CPU's have always performed best on many heavy duty tasks)
Also....the initial idea of many cores on a DIE has initially been to have lots of cores...
6-12 on very high max (turbo/OC) frequencies.
And the rest for other tasks.

Nowadays...we use that in mobile....
Not bad, but folks do miss the good old days...

The days of highest end CPU's with high Ghz across at least 4/6 cores, massive cache, lots of lanes... and in the end.
The forward movement and motion in the PC and server hardware industry the masses are missing.

I mean face it....
Lanes and Bandwidth are limited, Cache overall on CPU's is yet to move up and on where it could... and should be....and heat dissipation especially on high end CPU's is just no offence wrather crappy.
As seen, far more ineffective and inefficient then it could and should be by now.

I payed my dues, many around me as well...
It is time to step up and get the masses to move.
Allow them to move towards a new are of performance... towards it with a leap... a jump that sets new standards.

AMD has had its shots and is moving on darn well, in the end the countries that used to create the small stuff and small margins now make big bucks.
Nice shift and it was needed, a global flow and motion of people moving it eventually triggered, wars and fighting is not the same to the exact....

As in the world of tech, massive changes have been made across many sorts of globally relevant topics....
Shift in economics, ways wars are fought, what freedom fighters are called and call themselves a heck of a lot more % wise, what one can or cannot do on this globe.....

Maintaining control can be something nice, but only the ones controlling following only the needs coming from the wishes and outcome of lifecycles are iether most likely to do good and right for humanity overall.

All this the end just saying.
Not asking to go back, but to keep moving forward and adding those old methods to the new mixture.
That what made it great, and those methods that made it work at performance significantly better then the previous each time...
No margins in gain, but leaps making it worth it AND making sure that way to contribute more to prevent wasteful productivity on global scale.

What once was gold.... now is no more and sadly often feels like lead in the shoes.

A global economy cannot be remodeled without a hefty price.... but after all that, should the globe not pickup and move on... after the massive pain there should at least be a decent gain.

Greetings... just another fella, but one that once knew.
And fractually still knows.
TY for it all... but pls, give our global population what one needs.
