i think it was seated on properly, when i took the heatsink off the cpu, some of the artic silver went white, and also i think my heatsink has be scorched as well.

the die on the cpu looked ok but it did smell quite burnt.

i was looking at a video at the Tom's Hardware website where they showed a the heatsink been taken off whilst quake 3 was running and the cpu fried staright away and had a tempreture of 280 degress celsius.

guess i need to be extra extra careful when installing my replacement cpu.
