Removing the IHS from the Northwood-D @ Madshrimps

"I used a simple thread of high tinsel nylon, found the place on the chip where the epoxy seal was les then perfect (luckily it was on a corner), and began sawing away. I definitely recommend placing the CPU in a socket, and locking it down. Truth be known there were a few moments when I became impatient and actually lifted the CPU out from a locked socket. Not advisable."
