Best way to take out an AMD CPU? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I've also ripped the CPU out of the socket before when moved from Socket A to 939 since the heatspreader presents a much larger surface area for thermal paste bonding. Even then the pins did not bend. What exactly are you doing to bend the pins?

It's pretty straightforward, twist HSF after unclipping to break bond.
Lift lever.
Pull out CPU by edges.
???
Profit.

Instead of using one hand use both. I mean the index fingers and thumbs of both hands to get a better grip.
Actually, the trick is to hold the processor securely first (using only one hand, no need for both), and then lifting it up keeping the fingers steady. If you move your fingers while the cpu is still in the socket then it applies a rotational motion (instead of linear) which may bend the pins.

OT: My biggest gripe with AM* socket design is that pulling the CPU cooler off can easily yank the CPU out without undoing the lever first.
But it's impossible to lift the lever while the cooler is still on.

Try to twist or wiggle the cooler to break it free from the paste,or turn the computer on for 5 minutes or so to warm it up,then remove the cooler if possible. If nothing else then yank it out as gently as possible.
However,I wonder what the OP is doing to be having bent pins,I've never had bent pins,even when the CPU is stuck to the heatsink and pops out of the socket.

Are you un-securing the ZIF socket lever? I've just been very careful to always lift the lever, then use my thumb and finger to lft the CPU slowly out of the socket without twisting or tilting it.

I've probably ripped the CPU out of the socket with the heatsink 2-3 times, and never bent a pin.

Another thing I do is when I have popped the cooler lever I press down on the cooler and twist back and forth to break the paste loose. The cooler usually comes off easily after that without ripping the CPU off the socket.
