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?
