Hello all. If there is a better group to post this to, please let me know.
Whilst dump picking at my local transfer station I have developed a nice
little collection of processors. I like to "pop the top" of the processor to
expose the microchip for viewing. Now the 386, 486, Intel & AMD processors
have a copper shield over the chip that flicks right off with a sharp chisel
and a tap hammer, nice and clean. But I recently pulled a Pentium out of the
pile and this sucker has a ceramic shield that seems to be welded on the
thing. I finally got it off but not before cracking the entire chip. Does
anyone know of a way to remove the shield on these (and I am assuming
higher) chips? Some kind of solvent perhaps?
