    Great sense of humor there Birdkiller. That must have been some bus ride to cause that damage.

    This can happen to just about any computer on the way to a lan party right??? I mean how do you prevent something like this from happening, unless Tatoruso has just experienced one of the many downsides to having a lan party..........

    Dragon Orb? I got me a WBK38, it has like the largest heatsink I've eer seen. Just imagine if they made this puppy out of copper. I don't think they do cause it would be too heavy.

    Perhaps that's why they are working on the anti-gravity slot for the ZQWX984 motherboard. That would solve the problem of heatsink weight.

    dragon orbs wiegh about 700 grams, so yer heatsink is pretty light. i have seen a problem with the globalwin fans where the connector can come loose and therefore cause the heatsink to be easily movable

    wow 700 grams? that's even heavier then the CAK38. Which is about 440 grams. 700 grams is like twice the weight of my heatsink. I have stepped down :(
