Kaby Lake 7700K De-Lid & Re-Lid Complete

Just pulled the retail 7700K out of the Delid-Die-Mate. (Thanks to OCUK for sending that over to use. Great Tool!) This Delid-Die-Mate is not specified for Kaby Lake so I had to do a little Dremel work to the Delrin plastic block so we could use the tool to put Humpty back together again. The ugly "machining" is my handiwork, not theirs. But once I made the needed cuts, the "Skylake" tool worked perfect with the Kaby Lake. I used red RTV instead of black. Now we will get it back on the test bench with its newly applied liquid metal TIM and see if it the delidding and relidding was worth all the effort.
