I think you would need a reflow oven.

I assume (I'm not sure though) that it is attached to the motherboard by BGA (Ball grid array) which means it's probably attached by solder balls (Nearly a thousand). You would need a template and a very good heatgun/heat station. You would have to heat up the motherboard to remove the old one, then you would use the template to hold all the solder balls in place and heat it up and pull the template away when they are attached. Then you would have to align the new cpu socket properly and heat it up to get it resoldered to the board.

I'm just guessing, but if it is BGA that's about what you would have to do.

Foxconn holds the patent for CPU sockets.

I can assure you that it wouldn't well be worth the effort. Just buy a new motherboard, and save yourself the trouble.

u need a million dollar automated machine for that
I think a new mobo would be much convenient
if I were U, I'd be a miser in this matter lol

You're not going to be able to do it, period.
