Delidding an old AMD CPU, whoops!

Had an old Phenom II lying around and wondering if I could delid it to get a look at the die (because I'm bored and stupid), too say it didn't go well is an understatement, AMD definitely used solder back then as  well. Dont worry, the CPU was dead long before I tried this but thought people might enjoy the image.

That's cool! What Phenom was it? 

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.

AMD Phenom II X4 955, died many years ago when a friend turned the pc on whilst the cooler wasn't attached, took us a few minutes to notice

I guess now you have the opportunity to dissolve the material and see the raw silicon.

That's always fun to delid a chip! I've delidded several Phenom I and II chips along with FX. 

 

Totally soldered lol. Gotta take a torch to the IHS plate to melt the solder.

Ah well, you know for next time then!
