Hey guys! I know this is the best place to go to when something like this happens... WORST night ever! Anyway, I was replacing some case fans and that failed miserably. I needed to replace the back and side one, but the connection types were different and seemed impossible to work with so I took some pics and was going to come here for help, but that's nothing now. After failing at that I went to check the CPU out because my temps. were going up to the high 80's where as the AMD site said it's max was 60. And this is Celsius btw. So I remembered doing this before, after all I took a Hardware class in college years ago. Switch the lever.. Take off the heatsinck, make sure thinks are seated right and check the thermal paste... well when I tugged on the heatsink I think way too much came off. NOT what I remembered. (I think I added paste to this CPU a couple years ago) Anyway, it looked like my CPU was glued to the bottom of the heatsink or something?? I'm not sure.. here is a picture..
