You're lucky the heatsink still xferred enough heat off the CPU.  Did you
read the tomshardware.com article testing how Intel & AMD CPUs did after a
heat sink was removed from a running chip?  AMD failed miserably in that
aspect.  It took seconds before one of the chips started smoking.

BTW, what do you use to measure the temp while in Linux?  I've only been
able to use the VIA monitor in Windoze that was provided on the mobo CD.
Are you using this?  http://web.wt.net/~billw/gkrellm/gkrellm.html
