    Although I do admit that the core was a little crushed on the sides!

    where are ur 4 support tabs on the side? and what HSF has enough pressure to hold a Quarter panel on? maybe they should sell in the vise grip area too.

    Sucks, but look at it this way: most of us only get 1 keychain if we kill a chip..............
    Still overclocked and running linux on watercooled computers after all these years.

    OK OK, so a dremal was used. Did you really think AMD made the CPUs that flimsy?

    For some reason after I cut the CPU in half, it did not work no more... ???? ???

    Guess its time to upgrade to a XP2400+

    If you didn't have such a hottie as your avatar, I would say to re-crop that pic and make it your new avatar. Then atleast you would get some use out of it.

    Sux dude, I feel your pain...
