I just pulled a celeron cpu off of a computer and on top of it (between the cpu and the heat sink) is another little chip attached. It's locked onto the cpu by one of the same little lever arms that locks the cpu onto the motherboard. It's a celeron 2200 approximately. I can't find any other ones like it anywhere on the internet. Any ideas about what it is?
