When Intel had changed from a Soldered thermal interface to a thermal paste based thermal interface the process of CPU deliding was born. With thermal paste solutions providing thermal disadvantages over traditional soldered components pro overclockers quickly started taking the IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) off of their CPUs and started using aftermarket thermal interface materials in order to lower CPU temperatures while overclocking. 

Intel's high-end CPU platforms still use soldered thermal interfaces, meaning that the CPU Die is directly bonded to the surface of the CPUs integrated heat spreader, making deliding impossible, until now. 

The professional overclocker Der8auer has managed to delid Intel's new Core i7-6950X Broadwell-E CPU using a new version of his own Deliding tool, despite the fact that this new CPU still uses a soldered thermal interface. His method has been confirmed to work on both Haswell-E and Broadwell-E CPUs, but is not something that we would recommend that users try themselves at home.  

 

 

Above you can see a video where Der8auer explains his new deliding method and how to delid an i7 6950X. Sadly this video is in German, so a lot of our readers will not be able to fully understand the video, but we have heard that an English version of the video is coming in the near future. 

When replacing the thermal interface material of the CPU with his own Der8auer was able to drop the temperatures of his CPU by 4-6 degrees when under load, which is not very significant for most PC users, but certainly something that professional overclockers will want to take advantage of.

Right now we do not know if Der8auer will be selling his Haswell-E/Broadwell-E Deliding tool in stores, like his previous Ivy bridge- Skylake LGA 115X delid mate, but we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

The tool will come to the caseking store, will be black anodized and limited pieces. This is what I had understand in this video of him. Quote

Why replace solder with something else. If you are going to risk delidding it, run it without the IHS to get the most out of it.Quote
