*Note*: For Kaby Lake I only recommend using a specialised delid tool since the PCB is so thin (almost as light as a feather), doing other methods may result in premature CPU death.

After a Delid I could get a further 200mhz out of my CPU and also 20 degrees lower temperatures, this is in 33 degree ambient temperatures too, can’t wait for winter to rock around, might be able to get the cpu to 5.2 stable, boot at 5.3 :D.

Correction: The kit only cost me $14 AUD, about $11 USD?
