use a piece of plastic and go slowly.
Solder is soft and shouldn't be too hard to remove.


Some say Acetone/nail varnish remover helps too

Soldering Iron and a piece of paper?

Heat the solder till it runs and try put a bit of thin paper under it and lift it off....

With the tip of the iron you should be able to coax it onto the paper........just hold the paper on the edge if the core so the solder can fall onto it, if some falls onto the substrate....so what...there are no delicate chips on the top

I'm sure your have a soldering iron.....

Apop, next time just send it to me, and I'll destroy it. Via overclocking. The magic smoke has left another one
