Here's the situation. I've got two LGA775 boards. A pretty nice ASUS with decent power delivery and a nicely featured BIOS with overclocking options. Sadly, it has bent pins in the socket. I've got another LGA775 board pulled from a retail computer that has an undamaged socket, but obviously no overclocking options. Obviously what I'd like to do is somehow replace the damaged socket in the ASUS with the undamaged socket. I'd also like to add, this is just a project I'd like to try, none of this hardware is important to me and should I trash them both, it would be no consequence, so please no suggestions of buying a new board. With that said, what do you think would be the best method of removal of the socket? I've got several tools at my disposal. Blow torches, heat guns, ovens, etc. I can think of plenty of ways to remove the socket, but i'm not sure what would be the most successful method. Successful being removal of the socket while not damaging the board, (on the ASUS) and on the other boad, removal of the socket and not damaging the socket. Suggestions?
