Having narrowly avoided destruction from the "suction cup of doom", this is something amd should include with their CPUs.

Hopefully this becomes apart of their standard requirements for manufacturers so it becomes universally included

I actually managed to do this once about 20 years ago with an Intel P166 on socket 7. I had a hell of a time separating the stuck cpu from the base of the heat sink as the old white thermal grease of the period and the very flat ceramic cpu made a superb bond. It survived as did the socket. I learned the twist technique from that along with getting it warm prior to removal.
