I am not sure I understand what you are asking. The PCH component is wave-soldered to the board and should not be removed. If you are asking it you can remove the heatsink from the PCH to either replace it completely or just to replace the TIM, yes, you can - but why would you want to do this? If the PCH is overheating, the reason is because the system design is providing insufficient airflow. This is what you need to address...

You do not need to be concerned. This is a perfectly normal temperature reading for the PCH. It is capable of operating at temperatures as high as 100c.
