Have p4 3.2 running hot. have purchased Zalman Fatal1ty FS-C77 CpU cooler. Last time I removed a heatsink, I bent pins on my P4 3.0. Don\'t want to make same costly mistake again. Problem anticipated : is heatsink fused to processor. Suggestions Please. Tom

Sometimes the thermal paste dries up and the heatsink gets stuck to the processor. If you feel the heatsink is stuck, don\'t force it, just heat up the heatsink with a blowdryer or something and it should be easier to remove..
