Technology - Shuttle PC - Unpacking CPU

To see the components that I chose and why, goto here first.

I am using the AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchester 64 bit Retail. For the options and the reason that I chose this see here.

CPU

Inside is the CPU and a fan and heatsink. Unfortunately the fan and heatsink are wasted since the Shuttle includes all that.

The CPU is in a plastic holder, inside this the CPU is on a piece of black conductive foam,

If you remove the cpu from this packaging be careful not to touch the pins or discharge any static electricity on them see handling the cpu.
