Ode to a Dead CPU

Woke up this morning all happy and flamin,

Thought I'd do some Unreal gamin,

Hated my temps so I got me some grease,

Got Arctic Silver, spent twenty bucks at least.

My package arrived, so I got right to work,

Reached for the silver, thought it would work.

Having been from the old school, I opened the tube,

Blobbed on a bunch of the "innocent" lube.

SMASHED on my fan and was ready to go,

Then thought of the silver and said NO NO NO!

Pealed off the fan and cleaned off the chip,

But was unable to get every little bit....

But, I made the choice to go ahead with my plan,

Trusting my work, I Smashed on my fan.

Put my box back together and plugged in the wire,

Hit the ON/Off button, and started a fire.....

Pops and Crackles and Sparks, OH MY!

And in the fray, my Thunderbird died.

Called up some friends and told them my woes,

Told them what it looks like when a CPU BLOWS:)

And so, to the store I went and did spend,

Lots of money for my chip in the end.

And now I sit at my desk all struck with fear,

Should I call Spade and Rogue to help with my gear?

So the moral of this story is a hard one to face,

When using the silver in a fragile little space,

Generosity can be a great trait to obtain,

But an AMD TBird looks great on a keychain!!!
