    smoothnobody got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in damaged ryzen 3950 IHS   
    lulz @ vice grips and torch. ballz. had no idea AMD been using solder for that long. thanks for sharing the links, will read through them and hit you up about that IHS if we delid it. probably will, we've done a bunch of 1151 with the rockitcool delid tool. been thinking about messing with the soldered chips for awhile and now we have a good excuse.

    thought about lapping, but the scratches are pretty deep. don't think it's gonna work. would sand away too much of the IHS. the pins are not damaged. we know about the risk of delidding. he got the cpu for next to nothing and he is ok with the risk. not trying to talk him out of it. just trying to figure out if spending the money on another AMD cpu for the IHS is something that will work.
