Default Installing a socket...worth it IYO

If I ask a professinal to unsolder my CPU and install a S462/A instead THEN install the CPU back, will it be worth thhe money?


If so, is there any risk I am taking

That professional better know what they're doing because one missed or messed up solder and you might as well buy a new motherboard.

It's worth a try, if that person is a computer engineer. I thought about getting in to that field (even took some classes). It is HARD. You need to understand Digital Logic, electronic basics, etc., etc.

But if he makes an error, than you can expect a big headache coming on. If it was me, no way in hell am I tampering with my motherboard.
