When it comes time to upgrade an old AMD processor with a new chip, the number one issue PCSTATS hears about is damaged electrical pins on the underside of the CPU. Nine times out of ten this happens by pulling too strongly when the heatsink refuses to let go of the CPU... Trust me, there's a right way and an "I didn't read the instructions" way to go about installing and removing socket AM3 AMD processors. To help novice computer users who aren't entirely confident they can install an AMD CPU into a fresh motherboard, or upgrade an older socket AM3 processor, PCSTATS put together this illustrated Beginners Guide.
