der8auer Delids the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Processor

Famous overclocker der8auer has delidded the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor in his latest YouTube video. He's done this to evaluate if the benefits justify the risk. The IHS on the new Pinnacle Ridge processors is soldered directly to the die with Indium, so the delidding process is a little more difficult than before.

Ok well technically it is not really working, but the system does boot up all the way to the BIOS and memory checks, but it does not go any further.

We've been featuring a lot of news related to German overclocker Der8auer lately, and that is because he has been a constant figure in the high-end performance scene the last few weeks. Well, this week is no different, as he has taken Intel's latest top-tier HEDT CPU, the Core i9-7980XE, which we reviewed here, to the extreme. Extreme being 6.1GHz across all 18 cores.

Showing No Bias, Der8auer Delids AMD Ryzen Threadripper

Just over a week ago we reported on Der8auer delidding an Intel Skylake-X CPU, and this week he released a new video, embedded below, detailing what he found when removing the heatspreader on an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X chip. By using a prototype of his own Threadripper delidding tools, he was able to heat the CPU in the oven at round 220C for a little less than an hour, which liquefies the solder and loosens the glue, and get the heatspreader off with very little force.
