Well, it is definitely air cooled now. Not many vram chips have air cooling underneath like that...

I say fire it up in an old computer. It wont work but it might be funny to see what happens!

I rework SMT at my job. I have had contract work from all around the world for microscope SMT work. So yes, I am really good at microscope soldering. However, you cant "solder" flip chips. They can only be re-flowed similar to what baking it in the oven does.

In reality, since the BGA pads of the IC are GONE, there is no repair option.

set the chip back on and bake like there is no tomorrow!

alternitively, just try it without the chip. it will probably still work.
