!!! im using a thermalright SI-120 so im gla you added that little bit about em crushing the cpu. Ive got a lapping kit coming for the heatsink anyways so i guess ill see if i can use that on the IHS too
My cpu runs stone cold anyways i just thought the IHS was non exsential so wanted rid of it but apparently i was mistaken
again thanx and +rep for saving my CPU
