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

Intel should have done exactly what Linus did plus make the CPU with either a blue sub straight for Intel or a brown one for that retro CPU look. They should have also made that CPU the most baller consumer chip they could've made.

I have not seen brush plating done for over forty years when I left the electro deposition industry, we used to do remedial chrome or nickel for machinery. You could have a renumerative sideline going there :-)
