Never done it on an Intel, but done a few AMD's and there were very easy. Just wanted to know if it was basicly the same job?

NO!!!<br />

Soldered on. You will most likely pull the die right off the package with the IHS <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />

You have to heat the IHS up until the solder melts and it falls off the CPU. Pretty risky.

Best thing you can do is lap the IHS.

Super glue would be the single worse thing you could use to put it back on, lol.

</div> Thats probably because he didnt do his homework. When you remove the IHS off of an intel you also have to remove the holdown clip on the board so the heatsink will make good contact with the actual core, if the socket strap is still on the board then the heatsink doesnt fully touch the core causing realy high temps. I always get a kick out of things like that, people jump into things without thinking about it.<img src="/images/smilies/lachen.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Lachen" class="inlineimg" />
