could always turn it around and bend it straight lol, mine bent a lil at first so I put it under something heavy and flat and went easy on the screws. looking at it now, its still bent. nothing major!
ive also lapped my 8350 and block, gained about 5-7*c
I got a 360/240 rad just on the cpu. was aiming to do something similar to your build but give up and want a pot and testbench lol
what cards are they?!
I cant wait to see what nasty clocks you can get on it! mine so far is almost 5.7ghz on water
