I had to remove the AMD heatsink from an Ath64 in the past as part of an
RMD on a motherboard only to have the chip stuck firmly to the heatsink.
This resulted in pulling the chip out of the socket under force. I
was lucky that the CPU still worked after than kind of stress.
I'd rather not repeat that exercise.
I have an A8V Deluxe with an Ath64 3000 Venice that I'd like to upgrade
to an Ath64 3700 San Diego. The processor and heatsink have been
together for almost a year. I don't want to break the Venice or damage
the motherboard when I remove the heatsink and CPU.
