woah.. talking about that... last time when I did that, I banged my head so
hard against one of the pipelines, I had to replace the contorted part. Try
to get a pipeline at night! It starts with 'were do I get a pipeline'?
Luckily I was able to salvage it from another CPU.
Btw, don't use a blowtorch, the copper interconnects get too warm and
sometimes you have a loose connection after that - and then you have to crawl
in AGAIN. This can totally ruin your evening. Don't forget the dust
everywhere, and the paste hat drops from above. Arctic Silver is not nice, if
you get it in your hair.
