Done every day with some PC chipsets. They've been
using BGA for years, some of them run so hot they need
heatsinks and fans the size that were used on the
later 486 CPUs. Look up an intel DG965OT and goggle at
the huge heatsink on its chipset. Granted, it is
passive with no fan of its own, but it's almost as big
as the passive heatsinks I've seen on Socket 370 Pentiums.
