I used the Rockit Cool 88 delid kit and everything went smoothly. I applied thermal grizzly, put the IHS back on with the provided guide tool (I did not re-glue the IHS back on) and then popped it back into my system. The MB turns on but I get post code 'C'. I double checked the EPS power cables and everything was correct. I also tried to reset BIOS, took out CMOS batter, tried separate BIOS on the MB, tried 1 stick of RAM... still gives me 'C' for post code. The die looks fine as well as the PCB on the CPU. I do not see any bent pins on the MB. Here are pictures of the CPU and socket: https://imgur.com/a/bYCIz I'm okay(kinda) with loosing out on the CPU but I want to how I ****** up so I can correct it next time. I feel like I have tried everything but I want to make sure I'm not missing something before I upgrade MB is a EVGA z97 classified TIA for any help or recommendations.
