    The last technician was no technician at all.
    I am betting he was likely paid for something different and didnt have it at the time.
    That looks like the work of a very lame technician.
    That it worked till this time is really no credit to the tech
    \but rather a credit to the cpu.

    Well....the CPU is the LAST thing i would give credit to.In my opinion Intel went too far with overclocking the prescott.....I do think that the HUGE heatsink helped. Whenever i see prescott cpu (Which is quite rare these days), I have a pile of HUGE heatsinks with fans that I keep for that especially.In that case I replaced it with Deep Cool Alta 7 which is cheap (8$),Comes with big enough heatsink and quiet fan and does a good work.

    Btw Ferrit, talking about cpu's and I know you are the AMD guy, i just installed AMD ATHLON X2 270 cpu (3.4GHZ) on some system with stock fan which has a tiny heatsink and 1800RPM fan and was VERY surprised to see how low are this cpu temps are.....It's amazing how energy efficient and effective cooler and cpu desgins AMD makes

    Yes Amd is all i ever build. I dont use anything else and havent for over 10 years.
    I built 1 intel desktop to sit side by side beside an amd one to run the front desk of a busy golf course.
    that was 5 years ago. Both still run fine and neither has had an issue.

    I was impressed by the amount of fuzz on the HSF. Looked like it came from the Texas Panhandle. Of course, here, it takes about six months to accumulate that much crud. Personally, though I might have substituted duct tape for the string
