yeah probably, but if you secure it good and how it says in the instructions it should be fine. And when taking it off, just rotate the heatsink left and right until it comes easily off the processor. You just have to be careful, thats all.

Yeah, i was thinking the same thing (about the graffix card thing) seems a shame their upside down, i suppose it could also be that the graffix card pulls the cold air from the bottom of the case?

Well, ISA cards face up when they are in the case, but when they released PCI, they flipped it. AGP is built on PCI, so I guess they just kept the same card orientation.

lol i like youre avatar ya the modding potential would be great, also if they had uv light's, it would be the end of having lights on the top and bottom of your case becuase the video card blocks it
