Product information: Delid-Die-MateDesigned and developed by top overclocker 'der8auer', the der8auer Delid-Die-Mate is the ultimate tool for safely removing the Integrated Heat Sink or IHS from a CPU.
The Vice method has been the preferred method for CPU lid removal since the introduction of thermal paste into Intel CPU die contacts. With the advent of Skylake CPUs, many users have found that performance gains were huge when delidding the CPU and either reapplying a performance thermal interface material or running the CPU with the cooler directly on the die.
The problem with the newer style Skylake CPUs is that the PCB is so thin that you run the risk of damaging your expensive CPU by attempting to remove the IHS.
Many enthusiasts have started using razorblades to remove the lid of their CPU but this has a lot of dangers of its own. After spending time and money finding a top performing CPU, world class overclockers cannot afford to risk damaging a record breaking CPU by removing the IHS.
The der8auer Delid-Die-Mate simplifies this process and removes all risk of damaging your CPU.
The tool is two precision milled blocks that clamp together around the CPU with even force distribution that locks the CPU in place safely. By turning the screw on the back of the device, the lid of the CPU is pushed steadily away from the PCB with no risk of damage to your expensive performance CPU.
The der8auer Delid-Die-Mate has indicators for Skylake, Ivy Bridge, Haswell and Devils Canyon CPU types.
