    Why force it open like that. That poor baby. :p
    Why not just melt the TIM, and then take appart the CPU correctly?

    As I've understood, it's "glued" together with epoxy. Epoxy is resistant to temperatures.

    It's not easy to melt epoxy without damaging CPU core, almost impossible. Brute force is the way to go, but eeeeaaassssyyyyyy brute force.... :)

    It's dead...Isn't there a way to open it without damaging it? Controlled heat? Infrared controlled heat?

    normal epoxy yes but there is special one that are more or less like real melt from thermal and strengh caracteristic...

    part of my racecar frame are melted with epoxy and it's just fine.

    also Coolaboratory sell epoxy to "melt" processor to cooler (once do you cannot remove it anymore).

    Cmon for enthusiat market they should sell it with heatspreader and epoxy kit.
    If you want you glue it, otherwis you lap it and you go with wathever!

    no?

    Looks like the die has 12 cores.
    Another salvaged chip from the server department, meh!

    Because they didn't know it was soldered in the first place.

    Better one dead chip than having many customers destroying theirs thinking it was TIM under the lid.

    Maybe they should do so with a tray edition, but not the boxed one. People would complain about paying hundreds of [insert currency] and still need to glue their cpu together... that would sound strange to me too ;)

    RIP 5960X :(


    Correct. The 5960X is a gimped Xeon. That's why it has the solder. Same goes for the 5930 and 5820

    3/3.3GHz = nothing great for games.

    I hope that per-clock performance will be better than with 3770/4770.

    I hope so too, that and the 2x16 PCI 3.0 + DDR4 (not sure how much that helps in games) with the middle Haswell-E 6 core could be a decent deal, if you also have 2 powerfull GPUs that is.

    I'm eyeing the 6 core for exactly that reason. Balance between better multithreaded performance & CPU frequency.
