Stickers are great–sometimes!

Had to have a look at a machine with a failed HDD.  Apart from a fairly hot CPU, I was bemused by the bottom stickers (I’m too lazy to split these two stickers and put them on each individual RAM module) and concerned by the top sticker – IN BETWEEN THE CPU AND HEAT SINK!.  To Dell’s credit, this was probably put together by someone either new on the job (or just about to be retired) as this is the first one that I’ve EVER seen like this.  Same for the Dell tech and his bemused manager.  They also organised to ship out a new CPU, new heat sink in addition to the failed hard drive.  Kudos to Dell Pro support!


Yup, you’re not supposed to insulate CPU’s from the heat sink!
