Desoldering CPU to use somewhere else.
So my Macbook Pro Mid 2010 has one of those faulty GPU chips and i can't do anything but replace the complete motherboard, which is a mess, but there's no other option (reballing is not one, i've read).
I was wondering, tho. The only thing this motherboard has broken is the GPU chip, but the Core i7 2600 is working pretty well. Could i desolder it from the motherboard to use it somewhere else, like on a desktop motherboard (or sell it as used)?
What else can i desolder from it, or what use could i give to this board instead of toss it to the trashcan?
Is this a good question?
