EK-Quantum Velocity² IHS Removal Tool - 1700 is a delidding or IHS removal tool. It allows users to remove the Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) from their CPUs and directly cool the CPU die. It is a safe, easy, quick, and ultimately practical way of removing the IHS. While the IHS and CPU Die look flat to the human eye, the surface is actually very uneven.

Thermal compounds are used to fill the gaps between the CPU and IHS surfaces. But even with high-quality thermal compounds and even solder, it still accounts for an additional layer before reaching the cooler, resulting in reduced cooling efficiency. Additionally, the silicone adhesive that “glues” the IHS to the CPU can make a larger gap between them and further decrease the thermal transfer efficiency. 

EK focused on the tool’s safety to prevent users from damaging their valuable 12th and 13th-gen Intel® CPUs. Using the tool basically involves slotting the CPU into the device, aligning the triangle on the CPU with the triangle marker of the tool, and turning the attached screw. 


  • Delidding a CPU voids Intel warranty. Do it at your own risk.

This product, made of black-anodized aluminum, has been developed in collaboration with and produced under license from Der8auer, the famous German overclocker and one of the pioneers of extreme CPU cooling. 


  • This product is exclusive to the 12th and 13th Gen Intel CPUs with their IHS intact
  • Removal of the IHS voids the Intel warranty.
