Summary: As I already stated I was forced to delid the chip I have because of ridiculous temps, however for me personally it was right up my alley and I actually enjoyed it, however I doubt there is going to be very many people that feel the same way I did as it is an inherently dangerous process that will void your warranty.
Pros: *Running at 3.4Ghz its still fast enough to handle any game on the market now, with the chip I have easily reaching 4.2Ghz at a mild 1.26v (high compared to some chips, I know)
Cons: *The stock Intel cooler is a piece of garbage, so you automatically have to equate that into its cost.
Summary: Bought as upgrade from I-3 2100. Worked perfectly and allowed use of PCI3 3.0 video card. Now have perfomance index in all areas of upper 7s. Easy swap for install. Automatically ajusted to new cpu with reboot after intial boot in win 7 pro.
