Removing the IHS from the Northwood-D
Liquid3D is on a roll!
I believe the method described in this howto, may be the safest (albeit time consuming) for removing the IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader), from your P4.
Great background info and, man, I like his writing style =)

If you can get some of them foamy pads AMD uses, they sure help. The core is not as brittle as AMD, but it's not invincible.

I removed the IHS accidentally :-0.
What happened is that the Arctic Ceramique caused the heatsink (SLK800U) to stick to the IHS. When I removed the heatsink, the IHS simply came off with the heatsink.
The biggest concern I have is that the IHS added thickness to the CPU; and the heatsinks are designed with that thickness in mind. So now, the heatsink applies much less pressure to the core. (I wish I knew the spring constant for the SLK800U's springs, then it'd be possible to calculate the difference in pressure).

some guy removed the IHS, lapped everything well and placed the IHS back (with some good thermal paste offcourse).
without the IHS the CPU ran 1° colder, but when he placed the IHS back his temps decreased 5°. quite impressive :)

What'd you use to remove the epoxy or whatever it was holding the IHS on?

pure 100% alcohol

an Alternative method using a knife:
As for results, I've been running my machine now with my IHS-less processor for over three hours straight now, all the while running Prime95. My processor is currently sitting a full 2°c cooler than before I removed its IHS

This sure is awesome. I have been sitting around for a year learning from others here and there. I have a 2266 B0 stepping and it goes 3060 with air. I am within weeks going to watercool this one and I think I wanna remove my IHS aswell.
I have a friend @ www.waterheads.dk
who can make me a special head. However I need to know how thick this heatspreader is, anyone?
Kind regards Martin

This should also work for a 2.26 533fsb, right??

Yap, without problems, but start by just lapping the IHS, Liquid3D had already some good results by only doing that! http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...threadid=17026
Prooof is in the sanding. Yesterday in the same Ambient temp (my air conditoned room) my overclocking temp was 45C to 49C at 3.6GHz (300FSB) today same ambeint temp, and OC conditions, and the temp's are now 38C, and haven't gone above 39C. That's 6C to 11C temp drop!
