I recently built my first PC. The only problem I encountered was in installing the heatsink on the Athlon XP. It required far more force than I thought it would.

However, I now want to check the serial number on the chip and cannot get the heatsink of again. I have marked the sight of the heatsink trying. Should it be this difficult?

the best way to remove the heatsink is with the motherboard out of the case, if this is not an option use a small flathead screwdriver to push down on one side and slightly lever itagainst the heatsink. Be very carefull not to let the screwdriver slip and hit the mobo. It takes a bit of force as there very tight.
