Jesus what a headache. When double sided tape fails, what comes next? Large strings of zip ties, or duct tape?
I've got an xfx 780i board now, I dunno if I'm going to have the same problems or not.

If you don't mind zipties, I have found in my experience, that the large thick zip ties work the best for holding heavy items. Can find them at local hardware stores pretty cheap, and works great

Ducktape will loose its hold as it gets older and as it gets warm, just fyi.

yeah I'm not that good with water cooling. I'm likely to spring a leak and fry everything in the case. Would like to do water, or reverse something or another cooling. Tired of roasting when I start to stress my system. lol

I JUST bought my quad core chip. I haven't even had it 4 months! Not ready to upgrade chips just yet. I haven't maxed out this chip yet.
