Thats exactly what I did, but for some reason it still ended up bending my pins. It was only outside pins, none in the middle or anywhere else. I don't know what I did with my finger during the cutting part. I also don't think that I got deep enough into it. Maybe I should just let it go with the whole "Remove your IHS" things before I end up breaking my 4400+ and cry myself to sleep
. Unless there are any more video tutorials (not the one on oc.net) I don't think that I am going to do it.
