First off this wasn't ever really supposed to be taken too seriously, but a what if, someone try it type thing.

Read KF4SQB response.... You have to get the solder hot enough. You have to heat up the entire layer of solder while it is between two metal plates.
There's a lot of different kinds of solder including solders that melt at lower temperature then standard electronics solder.

I call bull***** on this from 10 miles away.

Third solder has lesser thermal conductivity than that of AS5 or other thermal compounds..
Fourth you will require a blowtorch to do so easily exceeding safe chip temps
Fifth INTEL OR AMD don't solder the IHS instead they use industrial grade epoxy adhesive with a decent amount of TIM filled in between..
and one last point I remembered is that Solder doesn't stick to aluminum (if you are going to use stock heatsink for the purpose)..
The heatsink can be heated to a soldering temperature pretty easy, they don't magically shed heat THAT fast if they did we wouldn't even care., yea you're not going to do it with a 10watt iron but it is possible to control the base temperature
A soldered joint would have WAY better thermoconductivity then a as5 or any other TIM, your comment to the contrary isn't even worth debating.
And both intel and amd do
solder their dies.

So simple, heat heatsink to just above solder temp, heat IHS to solder temp, apply solder put together... profit.... DO IT.
