The heat spreader on the XO-1.75 has four attachment points.
Removing and replacing it multiple times shouldn't cause any problems,
just try to avoid getting the heat conducting gunk over the SoC dirty.

And finally, unlike earlier XOs, the heat spreader is much less important.
I'm too busy using the oven for memory testing to check, but I bet that
they will run fine at 50C minus a heat spreader....
