Intel has officially launched the Core 2 Quad line of processors. These processors are based upon Intel's quick and efficient Core architecture. Intel launched the Core 2 Quad Q6600 which has a clockspeed of 2.4GHz and has a price of $861. This processor now sits at the top of Intel's mainstream processor line for desktop home users. Two new quad server processors, the Xeon 3220 and the X3210 were also launched. These two Xeon processors both have 8mbs of L2 cache. The 3220 runs @ 2.4GHz and is $851, while the X3210 is only $690 @ 2.13GHz. Intel has recently reclaimed the lead in performance processors with its Core 2 Duo line, based on the very efficient Core architecture.

Nice job there mate. The caps look extremely close to the epoxy - must have been a few sweaty brow moments there ;)

It was a matter of controlled breathing and slight steady pressure and praying I was not pushing to hard.

Did you see a resulting temperature decrease?

Here is a pic that better shows just how far to push the blade in.

Oh, and forgot to mention the HOW in detail.
in the pic below, you can see just how far the blade needs to go to pop the seal, and you can measure it by the hole in the ceter of the blade, if the bottom of the hole is just below the edge of the chip DON"T GO ANY FURTHER! cause the capacitors are RIGHT THERE.
AS for testing I have not had time or the opportunity to work on my PC/Loop all this week.
