This is the Ivybridge Version of my simple delid tool.

This Version is BETA,
There are two Ivybridge Heatspreader versions available, this one is based on the "round" spreader of the I3-3220.

The -K CPUs have a different spreader with sharp corners, so it would be cool if someone with this CPU could test it and give a feedback.

* print both parts,

* put some sort of rubber or foam on the inner bottom of the base.

* put the CPU into the CPU-holder with the long PCB part looking over the end of the tray.

* then put it in your vice and close it carefully.

For enough strengh print at least with 3 perimeters and 30% infill !


* Only for CPUs who are glued and with thermal-paste, not for soldered CPU`s


Materials and methods

Some sort of thin foam/rubber

A vice. - do NOT use a screw clamp !

a 3D printer that can print very exact, the dimensions are very tight to ensure that the cpu won`t jump out while pressing.
