How could you "not" give an editor's choice award to a delidding tool?? 

A couple months ago I took on the Rockit Cool Rockit88 Delidding tool and found it to be extremely easy to use and the results were amazing.

Be sure to check out the review and how-to video I posted on the Hardware Asylum YouTube Channel.

Intel mainstream CPUs have had a bottleneck in cooling due to poor heat transfer from the CPU die to the integrated heat spreader. Thanks to new de-lidding friendly tools released recently, it is now easier than ever before to handle this yourself and get a cooler running CPU. We examine two such solutions from Rockit Cool and Aqua Computer today, both of which promise fool-proof de-lidding and re-lidding.

There is a good chance that most every LGA 115x style processor coming from Intel will have the same TIM under the heatspreader so it will be interesting to see if they change the size of the CPU to battle "delidders"  happy smile
