A customer came to me asking to fix his computer due to it freezing all the time. I opened up the case and saw something I've never seen before... I see Crazy stuff when I do repairs... CLIP1 and CLIP2 are missing? (located at the bottom of the case with his heat sink.)

I took three pictures, Before and after shots...

I was able to salvage his mobo. Lucky guy!

I use a radio shack butane soldering iron with a very fine tip... Works wonders...

I suspect cold solder joints and or it got hot enough to pull them out...

Again, I've never seen this before... First time in my 17 years of computer repairs... Just wanted to share this with the crew here....
