Re: Intel to Kill Off Replaceable CPUs

FWIW, the socket design on the AMD Phenom X2 5400+ series sucks balls.

The socket literally ripped off the board when trying to mount the HSF - I'd done numerous replacements and upgrades with the same kind of socket style and HSF style, so I knew what I was doing. It just broke.

Way too much pressure in the wrong spots... why do I have a flat-head screw driver in a tiny little socket with that much force exerted on it when PCB isn't that tough?
