I have a 486 DX2 66 with a HSF that appears to be glued or epoxied on. There is no give so I suspect it's not thermal adhesive tape.
The fan works and I'm tempted to leave it, but if I recall a 486DX2 could run without a cooler (and well, I think that makes it look neater) so I'm tempted to try and remove it. Its a ceramic package so it likely would not get damaged but I'm wondering if the writing and logo are pretty much already fubar and I'm better off to buy a naked DX2-66 instead?
