Delided my 12900KS, what can I use to remove the black silicone?


Recommended Posts

CPU delid is complete, im just trying to remove the black silicone that sealed the perimeter of the IHS to the substrate and using 91% alchol and this damn wood scrapper that rockitcool ships with their delids kits is just taking for damn ever.  Anyone have any pro tips for removing this stuff?  Be much appreciated.  Heres a pic to show you what i mean

I might have done mine with a sharp blade too, just don't tell @Avacado I did 🤫


But it works fine with acetone and a tim spreader like he said, that's what I did on the more expensive CPU instead of risking it with a blade.
It's better to be safe with a chip like that, it's cheaper to spend an hour cleaning than messing it up and having to pay for a new one 🙂
