    what an annoying music. Mute it is then.

    That's one of the coolest things I've seen

    Heat doesn't damage the circuit within?

    A classic overclocking error

    No, silver wire is not in "another league" compared to transistors. The smallest transistor in the world is 7 nanometers, barely over 3x the size of human DNA. You will never come that close with silver wire, the current smallest transistors are made with a silicon-germanium compound.

    You can get a good macro lens from a computer dvd or cd drive. The biggest lens on the sled works well.

    Wait a second… does the IC have more ICs on it!?

    I do realize how stupid this question may sound, but would the IC's die be functional after the torching (considering, of course, that it was before)?

    So a realy realy realy tiny chip is packed by a too big plastic? becouse come on, the plastic case for the IC is too big right? or well, meybe they are made big for the pins and slodering stuff… hmm… to be continued…

    the hell are these things made of? I always thought the outer shell is plastic. Is it some kind of ceramic?

    IC what you did there…

    Is it me, or does the acid method seem to come out cleaner… less damage to the circuit.

    Coolest thing all day

    I bet there are IC's inside the IC's that controls the IC's in that IC's IC…and possible an IC inside the IC that controls that IC's IC.

    There aare a bunch of hifi enthusiasts in Japan who use trichlorethelate to dissolve the chip packaging on DACs so they can replace the legs with silver wire. The results are by all accounts stunning.
    Note: I am simply not entering into arguments about 'Why not use gold' or 'It won't sound any different' – These guys and me use single ended, silver wired valve gear. Its in a different league to transistors. Try it! :o)

    Why would you want to do this?

    what was the point of this?

    I think you IC overheated

    i want that mask 😀

    and the IC still works? XD

    medium rare for me please

    where is the second part????

    I tried this on my processor and graphic card and with less weight, now my computer goes much faster. They told me there is even a better way. Not sure about the details but it was along the lines of "File -> Open"

    in ttl chips there are transistors, technically ics

    In my country we call IC's "bugs"

    it has about 3 years of being uploaded, so i think they are a little bit late xD

    Wow… My computer over heats but… Wow.
