If you have a heavy (450g+) CPU heatsink on a Socket A or Socket 370 motherboard, it will eagerly demonstrate certain basic laws of physics when the computer is moved around and land on the video card, taking the motherboard's plastic socket clip with it.
LOL!! BTW, getting a 3500+ in exchange I do not consider lucky. They are considered the worst of the venice overclockers.

so, umm, err yeah

AMD has done that twice now, when an RMA'd PCU is given back it is usually a model higher, first it was Lord Anthrax, and now Rico Direnzo.

maybe AMD's way of saying sorry we gave you a ****ty CPU and give you a model high, they dont cost anymore to make so AMD dosent loose anything.
