This is the Kaby Lake Version of my simple delid tool.

Thanks to "Stullen Andi" for sharing the CPU dimension source :)

This Version is BETA,

I dont have a Kaby Lake CPU therefore it would be great if someone can print, test it and give feedback if it will fit

This tool should also work with Skylake/Devilcanyon/Haswell CPUs as Kaby only has two additional noses.

* 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 slowly carefully (giving the glue time to release).

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 (c-clamp) or a hammer !

a 3D printer that can print very exact, the dimensions are very tight to ensure that the cpu won`t jump out while pressing.
From the responses until now it seems that the glue of the Kabylake cpu`S may be a little bit stronger, so its strongly recommended to print with high-impact material like PLA at 0,1mm layerheight or less and very high infill !

Captain Flaps, did you change any settings or parameters for size, or did you just print it as is?

To anyone wondering, this tool works perfectly fine with Coffee Lake CPUs. Used it on my 8700k, worked perfectly. Thanks :)

hello straus, sorry cant say if it is compatible, i have no CL cpu, maybe someone can give feedback if it will work

Is this compatible with 8700K & 8600K ?

Hello casper, the Kaby Tool should also work with the skylake cpu, what exactly happened ?

I tried with a Skylake CPU i3 6100 wrecked the cpu does not work anymore sadly but it's my own fault since it skylake prehaps so just look out for that :)

Does this tool work on 4770k? Otherwise this would be.

Follow up: Total success. This print made deliding super simple.

Absolutely amazing! Thank you very much. Worked PERFECTLY! No trimming or mods necessary. Printed with 3 shells and 50% infill and PLA. Probably overkill, it didn't even give a bit in the vice and delidded the IHS with barely half a turn on the vice. Thanks again...!
