If you're careful, you can use a knife to pry off the CPU, you can't damage the CPU itself (Unless you're like really recklessl.) as it's the heat spreader that is made of metal, is stuck to the cooler.
How much fucking thermal paste did you put on that thing? An entire tube? It looks like someone was making a PB&J
As you can plainly see, it has absolutely EVERYTHING to do with pins, and absolutely nothing to do with the heatsink being stuck to the CPU due to 200% use of thermal paste.
Eh, I don't really think that's the issue at hand in this case scenario. I got a Thermaltake NiC5 and I've never had this fucking problem, and I literally never exceed 48C even when playing Fallout 4 or Metro Last Light or whatever. The fans were noisy as FUCK so i swapped them out and it still works like a charm. So it works really good, and the amount of cooling you get from premade liquid cooling kits isn't that much better than a good air cooling heatsink. Now if you go any make your own liquid cooling set with all the parts and what not, then its definitely comparable. But its definitely a hassle.
The issue at hand here is that when you use 3rd party cooling it's a crapshoot. If it breaks your CPU there's no use crying to Intel about it after the fact that your SUPER KAWAII MEGA COOLING SOLUTION ENDORSED BY EXTREMESUPEROVERCLOCKERS.COM breaks your processor.
That and a lot of shitty cheap coolers have also been known to bend/warp motherboards. Why would anyone with half a brain ever think it was a good idea to put it on your processor?
If OP had half a brain he'd just use a credit card or something and pry that shit off. This is why /g/ should never endorse 3rd party cooling. Retards with half a brain think their clever then proceed to fuck up their entire system.
>stock cooling solution comes with thermal paste applied correctly and evenly
>LOL BUT /G/ SAID I NEED THIS 3RD PARTY COOLER SO I CAN OVERCLOCK!
And there goes another /v/ fagets $200
>correctly and evenly
that dry shit would introduce air bubbles for sure.
If the fag assembling the computer understands how viscous fluids spread when crushed, he ought to be able to make a perfect spread for his particular use case.
>wonder why it destroys 14nm process CPUs
Are you trolling? How retarded can you get? 14 nm is the die size, the bent part is just the CPU package. Intel could of went with a thicker one and still had skylake be at 14 nm, but they are cheap jews so they went with the cheaper, thinner material to make more profits.
>they had to make it thinner due to engineering reasons
Can you provide a source for that claim? Or are you trolling. There seems to me to be no logical explanation for it. Also, $0.50 per unit is a lot for hundreds of thousands of units.
That happens because AMD uses too much paste on those CPU coolers, I've had this happen on all the AMD computers I work on at work.
I usually just get a screw driver and push from the corner, usually puts a nice big scratch across the heatsink but it doesn't ruin the CPU.
>Intel retard-proof's their sockets because they know users are retarded and will use 300% thermal paste
>AMD assumes users are at least smart enough to consult a guide or ask someone, and focus on giving more profile to the thermal shroud for better cooling.
Why should my CPU taper at the edges if I never see it under the Heatsink. Its a processor, not a fucking iPhone. Next they'll release Gunmetal Grey and Gold editions of their heatshrouds and you'll criticise AMD for that too.
You've never seen a CPU stuck to a heatsink, because you aren't retarded. Good job.
