After noticing that my Newly build AMD 64 system was running a little hot I decided to reseat and change the cheap paste that came with the heatsink I bought to Arctic silver. Well here's the bad part, the cpu paste hardened a little bit and more or less glued the heatsink to the cpu. After a few minutes and realizing that I could not get under the heat sink to safely seperate the heat sink and cpu. I was forced to tug on the heatsink with a little more force then I wanted to. Sure enough the CPu stuck to the heatsink and got pulled out with the heatsink resulting in several bent pins. Long story short after 45 minutes of trying to get all the pins lined up right with tweezers one of the pins broke off rendering the cpu useless. I think I cussed at least one time for each dollar the new cpu will cost me. Moral don't skimp on the thermal paste and use a minimal amount of paste.
