3d printed delid tool worth the risk???

I'm thinking of delidding my 7700k but don't want to spend £50 on a delid tool I will probably only use once. I've found some on eBay for £9.99 but are they any good and worth risking?

Depends on the quality/resolution of the print. Got any pics or a link?

If that has not been sanded then it looks like very high quality printing to me. I've seen poor quality cheap 3D print and it looks nothing like that.

Edit. Also, a 3D print on a cheap nasty printer will take all night. He's selling loads, so he can obviously print them quickly.

The 7700k has no components under the IHS, så just use the razor method.
But instead of a razor, use a hobby knife. It's easier to control with a good handle.
I will give my 4790k a go this weekend.

I had a i5 2400 (its soldered) i used it to practices, it takes a good lot of patience.
But it was a lot easier than the razor videos.Where they have problems controlling the razor (i din't get the IHS off as it's soldered, but i got the glue the hole way around.)

Yeah I'm not too keen on the knife method, one slip and you stuffed whereas a delid tool looks a lot safer.

If it's good quality I might give it a go thanks now do I remove all the original glue after delid or leave it?

You will soon find out when you fit the two parts together tbh. Tolerances should be very tight.

Just don't think the tools is fool proof.
The whole idea of delidding is to remove the glue. Removing the glue will place the IHS closer to the DIE = Better temps. The new Intel paste is actually not that bad, it's just misunderstanding from the older TIM. The glue is a certain thickness due to the manufacturing process.

You still remove the glue after using the tool. You just rub it off with alcohol/your finger instead of dangerously removing it with a knife. It's far safer.
