Won't help... the sticker is made so that part of it peels off and sticks on the motherboard while the other portion comes off with the sticker... there's no way to keep the sticker intact to stick back on... DFI really lost my respect with this move... modder friendly my @$$

Probably because they made the stupid move of making their whole 939 NF4 line with the same northbridge... the lowest models were easily converted into higher end SLI models by scrapping off some epoxy and making a connection with a simple #2 pencil... I'm sure a bunch of people cut too deep into the epoxy and RMAs skyrocketed....

Regardless, no other companies are this anal about their warranties and it's even worse considering how DFI flaunts their modder/tweak friendly name

I thought you can't use profanity on OCN?

Anyways, I don't have a DFI board anyways, so it doesn't really matter unless I decide to buy one in the near future...

I got the normal vertical one. There's actually only about 1 mm of space between it and my Scythe Mugen cooler. It's a tight fit to say the least. But it works wonders for cooling that northbridge!
