3D Printers Create Skylake Delid tool


When we reported on the der8auer Skylake Delid-Die-Mate becoming available for sale in the UK and Europe we were immediately told by a large section of our audience that the tool was prohibitively expensive and that surly a cheaper and equally safe method was available for deliding out Skylake and other older Intel CPUs. 

Being a new product we did not expect any cheaper variants to be available, but through he power of 3D printing a cheaper, but still effective solution is available, allowing those with access to a 3d printer the ability to delid their CPUs in a "safe" way, well at least safe than the traditional razor blade and vice methods. 

Below is the method for using this 3D printed Deliding tool:

* 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.

The one downside of this new method of deliding your CPU is that you are required to own a 3D printer or have access to one, which is something that isn't exactly common yet, though it is nonetheless a useful application of 3D printing, as variants for any unsoddered Intel CPUs could be made very easily and in a short period of time.
