It'll help a little, a few degrees at max but is it worth risking damaging the chip for that?

Yes. .

You can get shigsy to do it - he's coordinated.

Lol, i would rather upgrade my cooling than remove the IHS, the amount you will gain varies from chip to chip, i have seen some with really poor IHS contact where they gain 5-10C, others have fairly good contact and you only gain 2-3C.

If it is worth it is down to you, it's only money after all if you damage it

That sounds all a bit risky for a couple of degrees! Good luck if you go ahead!

Hello?

WE ARE EXTREME PROMETEIA - not cautious prommies!!

Take it to the max my friend and go forward and remove that IHS - if you PM Shigsy - he will remove it for ya (at a very reasonable price).

The temp difference of a few degrees can be teh differnece between a good overclock and a great overclock.

GET EXTREME!!
