    So I'm going to mark my post as "misinformation". This method is a proper PIA and doesn't work well. The dual soldering irons method from a previous video is the easiest I've tried so far.

    I’ve had good easy success with the whole side and then just lift a little. The opposite side legs get bent a bit, but not by much of you are careful. I usually use tweezers to hold while I hold the soldering iron with my other hand. The chip quick solder is good for this in the kit because there is no rosin core that will burn up your tip and de solders off the pads with a solder wick easy.

    I’ve done a few and the last Bifrost MB I did, I had it done in just under an. hour - meaning: disassembly, removing the boards from the case, de-solder and remove x2, clean up, solder new chips on, clean up, reassembly.

    I just did my Bifrost MB. Just under an hour as well, using dual soldering irons. I gave up on the method in my video after 10 minutes of ineffectiveness.

    Those were some exceedingly long cook times on everything except the resistors... good way to fry your chips and nearby components.
