    I decided to replace the generic thermal compound on my CPU with Arctic Silver II, so I undid the clips on the Pentium 4 HSF retention bracket and pulled the HSF off. But get this - The chip came out as well!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I was **** scared of breaking a pin on this $600 processor, but I thought that the socket should hold the CPU in? :?:

    Has anyone had this happen to them as well???

    LOL :D

    Probably won't work. He's investing time, money and effort into a shiny new Pentium4 setup.

    Well it is true that since receiving the Pentium 4 from the kind folks at Intel (cheers guys!) that I have been investing in "accessories" for my new toy, like Arctic Silver II, Arctic Silver II Thermal Epoxy, Cooling Fans etc.......

    But if somebody was gonna send me an Athlon to use I would most definately consider going to the "dark side" :D

    Just that I can't afford another one..... only have $130 in the bank ATM and got Christmas presents to buy yet :cry:
