Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, I just got a new processor for my HTPC and replaced the old one (went from AMD Athlon X2 5050e to a AMD Athlon X2 240e.. confusing naming but the 240e is more powerful), when I was removing the heatsink it took the processor with it. So, I didn't move the socket lever or anything.. when I was lifting up the heatsink the processor came off with it.
From what I can tell the processor isn't damaged, there are no bent or missing pins.
This is the first time this has ever happened, it's like the processor is glued to the bloody heatsink. What do you lot reckon I should do with it? I was planning on selling the processor on ebay separate from the heatsink but i'm thinking of just leaving it like that.
Spoilered for large image...
This is a bit of a frivolous post I admit, but i've been doing this for years and this is the first time a processor has ever come off with the heatsink. And it was sort of a "wtf?" moment.
