Re: What is this CPU delidding thing?
Not sure if that's a good thing. Pressing the heat sink directly to the naked chip could cause an uneven pressure on it and damage it (one cannot lock all four clips at the same time), let alone the possibility of damaging it even if put straight right cuz of its material nature. I mean, if the lid was not needed, why would manufacturers put it and increase costs in the first place? Parts made with the least risk in mind is the way to go.
