I just recently got a 3.3GHz AMD Rana 455 CPU to replace an old X2, but one of the clips on the retention bracket broke off. I have another one ordered, but in the meantime I have some work I need to get at on the drives (and I no longer have a desktop to swap the drive into).
Is it safe to run the computer with the computer on its side and the heat sink just stuck on with the thermal paste for any amount of time?
Thanks in advance!
