Found a pair of odd ones while going through a box of random CPUs and heat sinks. Sorry about the bigger one, it seem permanently attached to the heat sink. Maybe somebody can recognize it by the pattern of the pins. I know the small one is DEC, but from what? The heat sink was actually bolted to the chip.

Well, I doubt using a heat gun would be of any help in loosening the heat sink adhesive. :p

Maybe someone else here knows what might work for doing that.

I'd soak it in Isopropyl alcohol overnight. The higher percentage the better.

Use the widest flat bladed screwdriver you can find - almost a putty knife - and pry the body of the chip, not the corner. I did see the one on ebay with the corner broken off, so I knew what could happen.
