"The sockets have lead-free solder balls on the underside for surface mounting on the motherboard and use an Independent Loading Mechanism (ILM) to seat the processor onto the socket."

You wont be able to replace the socket if it really is mounted using a grid of solder balls, that would be extremely tedious and i doubt you have the necessary equipment.

Agreed. It's a job for a robot (seriously).
