I used a mild solution of acetone and brushed it over the super glue, which immediately helped dislodge it without harming the PCB.

The CPU in question is long gone, it was a friend's who wanted it de-lidded but did not want to do it by themselves. I was approached by Aqua Computer to see if I would be interested in their new tool, and decided to make an article out of it by involving Rockit as well.
