I just rebuilt mine into a new case so I could stuff new stuff in my CL. I however never really ran into many game breaking issues with mine. I plan to keep it trucking for as long as it runs. It's the pinnacle board of a generation if you got a good sample
I did exactly that. I replaced the battery, & all my SATA cables, & cleaned the heads/ports on PSU n fan cables w/ 90% alcohol.
