Nice I didn't go naked as I have the raystorm but still rock the ultra under the IHS and yes I did literally drop about 20c-30c depending on applications. I have a 4770k though.
EDIT: I used the vice method if your looking for a tutorial this one is good it's what I did, it took one wack and mine just came apart. It goes on like water color paint basically, just be patient and don't use too much. http://imgur.com/a/Z3Fea
Yeah vice method definitely looks like the way to go, unfortunately I don't have a nice crisp bench vice like that just my little dremel vice, the rubber grips are an advantage though and a little flex might squeeze it off nicely, got a 1155 celeron or something rattling around that would make a good test subject, need to check if they soldered those though. Still been too busy to have a crack, hopefully get a free afternoon soon, good opportunity to inspect the rest of the water gear while I'm fitting it.
