This is my first instructable, so there aren't many steps involved. I am just getting familiar with the site! Any comments are welcome.
Most of us have seen photos of a silicon chip die, usually magnified. In many of those chips, specially the large ones, the several logic areas are visible by naked eye. In this instructable I am showing you the steps to open-up an i486 DX2-66 CPU and inspect the contents! It's a rather large (and slow for these days :-) ) silicon chip. It's a very easy task, as soon as you are patient and gentle, because the contents are a bit fragile!
Step 1: What you will need
1) An i486 DX2 CPU or any other CPU with similar packaging. (I have plenty of old CPU's but I chose to kill this one because I have a couple of this model)
2) A hammer (not a very heavy one!)
3) A chisel with sharp edge
