haha thanks for the interest guys. I don't see many people trying this and I'm sure there's a reason behind that, but figure that I'll try and if I fail.....well, I have a broken motherboard that is still broken.

As noted in a previous post, you'd be better served trying to find a new socket than salvaging or harvesting one off of another motherboard.

If you can find a new socket, it's possible to do this job with some rudimentary tools and skill - if you don't have anything to lose anyway.

1. Make a heat shield for the backside of your motherboard using heavy duty aluminum foil. Cut out a square from the heat shield that is equal to the size of the cpu socket pins that you'll need to desolder / resolder. Make sure the heat shield covers every other part of the motherboard backside

2. Fabricate a little box or tube that will fit around the cpu socket. It will be open on both ends and should stand about an inch tall. This will further insulate everything around the socket and also help direct heat to where heat is needed

3. You need a hot air gun - for the most part it's impossible to do this job with a regular solder iron. You will use the hot air gun to "flow" and then "reflow" the solder joints

4. After removing the old socket, it's very very important to thoroughly clean the remaining residue from the socket joints on the motherboard

5. After cleaning and prep you're ready to attempt to install the new socket

Hey thanks a lot! Any chance of me killing the CPU when I try to fire it up?

That depends on how well the solder job is when you're done. You could always short out a ground pin with a power pin and destroy the cpu.

At best case your rework job = success

At next best case your rework job = doesn't work but doesn't fry your cpu either

At worst case = you ruin the cpu if something shorts
