MK124 IC + socket wrongly mounted

Hello there,

Is it possible to remove the socket with the IC still mounted or will this be too hot for the IC?

I expect this to be the fourth and last mistake on this project. my third project.

thanks in advance

a total noob from Holland

There is no need to remove the socket, just invert the IC.
If you decide to turn the socket, remove the IC.

Thank you for your reply, it worked like a charm!
