Doh! What kind of thermal goo? If it's the stock Intel cooler it should have the classic black thermal pad. Those are annoying...but have never stuck to a processor on me.

If you used AS then you used too much. It's really not that big of a deal. Just remove the cpu and reapply some TIM.

Just twist the cooler back and forth before you pull away.
Never pull straight up right away.
Any large heat spreader over the core CPU will do that.

Happened to me with normal thermal paste. Nothing hurt, I just had re-apply the TIM. Good advice Alex, I'll remember that.

It was the boxed version so that was regular black thermal pad. No harm done either.

What I do myself is run the system for awhile to warm up the thermal paste or pad which ever happens to be sandwiched between the processor and the heatsink. Then as Alex says gently begin to rotate it slightly back and fofth. Take you time, it is not a race. Some systems won't run which is part of the reason they are coming apart. Still take your time start with just a little motion. Til you get it loose. Some where here in my room I have a 2.4B processor that a customer removed himself. There are aound 150 bent pins 3 of which are gone as he tried to fix it with needle nose pliars. He was just a bit to aggressive......

Luckily never had the chance to harm a P4, I just knew it was a bad idea to have to pull so hard on something..lol
I don't have much money, so I have to be extremely careful with my stuff..hehe
Also, a great piece of advice from my uncle long ago, for electronics, if it wont come out easily, then you're not doing it right..lol

Thumbs up

I like to see such a good mechanical bond! That tells me the heat transfer is op"tim"um. I bent one row on the edge of a 370 before but I was able to straighten them out with a license. I sighted down the pins and worked slowly. The license did the whole row at once. Pretty slick. I got it to fit and it's still in use today! I never attempted to remove it again though.
