I assume I would cut the adhesive around the edge, as I have done before, and then just mill off the top, slow and steady, until I get to the solder.

What do you think?

I delidded my 875K using a stove. You might want to give it a try. The link is in the previous post.

Cheers!

spdaimon I believe they are soldered. From what I've seen on this forum, most enthusiast class chips are soldered, even something ike a 4960X where thier IB mainstream counter parts are not.
