I would ask for the labor fees to be refunded from the "Technician" idiot. He could of costed you another $200+ on a New GPU.

Common occurance of techs to leave the plastic on the heatsink. People on OCN do it too by accident.

I find that really hard to believe.

I don't think people whom are overclockers and put stuff together themselves would be that stupidly absent minded.

I've done it before, It can happen when people do something so often it becomes autopilot, PEople are human, We suffer from being human, It's called the human syndrome, We are prone to make the occasional mistake,The problem was fixed easily and fine i'd let the matter drop, Honestly people over-react.
