dunno. but they covered it under warranty so maybe they put some As5 on it or somethin? or maybe reattached the h/s properly. most likely the h/s was on wrong or something. i dont wanna pull it off and check to see if the thermal pad is on there still or what they did. but they removed the hardcano also. and left a few fans unpluged.... in fact, all the fans. oh... maybe thats it cuz the cpu fan ran faster on the mobo than on the temp display so they prob changed it to that

no it was free cuz it was under warranty. i just got it last friday... and it was already overheating. if they tried to charge me i would kill them. and then steal all of their good stuff like another raptor and maybe some as5. they have about 100 of the tubes in a basket. sooo tempted to steal some every time i go in there. $50/hr or $70/hr rush labor = b/s
