How to remove the solder from 9th Gen CPUs

The easy way to clean the solder from your 9th Gen CPU.

This requires a small amount of Liquid Metal or Galinstan (See our kit for this). The solder is liquefied by the Liquid Metal or Galinstan (Gallium actually does the work).

Removes all solder and only leaving the plating that Intel applies to help the solder bond to the silicon CPU die. This can be removed with metal polish such as Flitz
