[large snip]
" AMD actually suggests phase-change thermal patches like those that come
" with most Athlon-approved coolers. Replacements for these are
" available
" from Chromerics as once the processor melts the pad (approximately 60
" degrees is required) then it needs replacement if you remove the
" heatsink. I've built many Athlon systems that run these with no
" problems
" whatsoever. Incidentally, AMD will void your warranty on your
" processor
" if they get it back stained with the white (silicone base) cpu
" compound.

Cheers, Thanks.
