CPU Deliding Quick Guide

TweakTown has put together a guide to deliding your CPU. If you are looking for the best possible temps you can get from your CPU and you don't mind voiding your warranty, you'll definitely want to check out this article.

Deliding is the process of removing the IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) from the CPU with some methods described below which aim to drop CPU temperatures. Since Intel Series 3, 4, 6 and now 7, Intel uses a black silicone type to glue the IHS to the PCB, but the die barely touches it. And Intel uses a poor kind of thermal paste too, so there's very poor contact between the die and HIS, resulting in bad heat dissipation, thus a hot CPU.
