There is zero reason to change that cooler ... it is large enough.

Keep in mind soutbridge only needs 6-7 Watt under full load.

So you waste your money on that cooler and lose you warranty too.

Was it in the white box? Got a picture?

Here is a stock photo of the box from Newegg. It did have a sticker jammed on the box that said it has an usb 3.0 internal header, but was clearly put on as an afterthought.

What do you think? Has anyone done a build with the M4GZ in this case yet? If so, how is the airflow and the fan noise? Thinking of this as my new case.

Wish the USB 2.0 on the front were also USB 3.0 (there is one). Maybe I can change them out later. Seems like a decent case for $99 + shipping (newegg).

With 120mm fans...

Or with 140mm fans?

Warped ... not bent ... the PCB would BREAK/SNAP rather than Bend wouldn't it ? More like it overheated and warped, but HOW ... is the question?

Damn dude that sucks, I know how you feel about GPU's not working out.

I know gpu pcb's can bend over time. But considering that is a brand new card?

My Sapphire 5870 has a slight bend at the end of the card due to the weight of the cooler. It isn't nearly as substantial as your card though.
