As we all have heard by now, the AMD Duron and the T-bird CPU's are pretty fragile and are pretty prone to breaking when putting on and removing the heat sinkfan combo.  Having seen several of these CPU's with cracks and corners chipped and broken off live and hearing and reading more horror stories on the net. 

I decided that this wasn't going to happen to the Duron 600@950 that I just bought.  While I have previously made a spacer for my celeron 566, I was sure I could whip something up for the Duron.

   First I made a template of the Duron, making sure it cleared all the SMT (Surface Mount Technology) chips on the top of the CPU, and I decided I might need the little pads on top at some later date if and when a non-crushing HSF is ever released.  So I made holes in the template so they could stick through also.
