many years ago....
i bought asus x1300pro 256mb (600mhz/1ghz?)
the stock cooler in the end went to trash because it was loud and i add revoltec Graphic Freezer Pro to have a quite cooling
I mean you can still collect on the warranty if you replace the HS back to its stock design. You really threw it in the Trash? I feel this overwhelming urge to pull a "Naughy naughy" and do the ole shame shame gesture with my fingers.
Just for future reference busting your warranty means that you cannot no matter what you do put it back the way it came. Throwing out the supplied cooler really shouldn't count cause we're OCN we have access to tons of members with tons of spare parts layin around. One well timed email can mean the difference to you bought it you eat it and don't know what you folks are talkin bout Mate.
I agree that yours is busted but I'm on the fence with just how busted it really is.
