Okay, i had the stock heatsinc installed and i realized that wouldn't work anymore. So, i decided that i would change it out with the better one i had and was being lazy about putting in in the first place. When i went to remove the heatsinc (after removing the clamps first of course) there was SO much suction on the Processor from the thermal paste that i pulled it right out of the socket!!! I freaked out!! i examined it completely and non of the pins looked damaged and neither did the socket. So, i cleaned off the paste and replaced the heatsinc; here i am now using it to type this message to you and still i worry maybe there was/is something wrong with it. Or am i just over-thinking it?

Try running this free program to stress the CPU: http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm
If it works OK, then the CPU is probably OK

Ya I did that one time, lol. If your computer is still running then you should be alright. My computer still works fine too. It's definitely not good for it, but accidents happen.

As long as you remembered to put on NEW thermal paste you should be fine. I have yanked a few out myself firm and steady pressure is the best way, sometimes the processor comes out with it.
