Monster00 you can sell it in the buy/ sell section. someone was selling car tires so R/C gear isn't so strange.

I can't reach underneath to unlatch the armature on the CPU, if I could do that I could remove them as one, and then separate them. And in summation this is why I hate termal pads.

Find a slim/small computer screw driver and try and unlatch the cpu from the motherboard. Thats what I had to do with mine. Or you can use a paper clip, bend it and see if you cant hook and pull the leaver over and up... Or try something similar to the paper clip idea, perhaprs something like a twisty...
