so i upgraded my cooling to a arctic 280 aio but up removing the deepcool assassin 3 i noticed something attached to the bottom of the cooler when i removed it....

was my 5950x it came out with the cooler. no bins were bent no damaged to socket. in all my years iv never seen this, i know i clamped it down as i did a test wiggle to make sure it was in.

did a quick search found if the paste used bonds tightly then it could happen what i can do in future is if i continue to use TG Extreme i needto warm it up a bit then remove it.

Yeah, this was fairly common back in the day. Not only is it a good idea to remove the heatsink "warm", it's also a good idea to rotate the HSF a bit when removing it.

I take it you are referring to a AMD cpu , I have done this a fair amount of times the cpu somehow pulls past or unlocks the CPU locking thing and there was once where a pin or two actually bent I panicked came on here and was told by a few people to just use a pwn that has a small opening to straight the pins out I never was good at that kind of delicate but was able to straighten them out so they aligned enough to use a tiny bit of force to set the CPU . I have never had any issues the CPU frying though. so long story short if the pins are not bent just clean it up put it back in
