Dear Itautec,

Please don't glue the processor on the heathsink with tape.

Thanks.

PS: If you ever get something like this, take the processor/heathsink out of the socket before trying to separate them, or you might end up pulling the processor out of the socket with it locked (like I did), which means a lot of bent pins.

PPS: It was an ancient computer (Itautec Transglobe 1001; AMD K6-II 450), they most likely don't do it anymore - I guess it would mess the heat dissipation on modern processors. Anyway, I don't think it was a great idea back then also...
