On second though i might just be forced to get the danger den torture rack. This HS is seriously about as heavy as a freakin brick. I don't feel comfortable with all that stress on the mobo.

One good bump or jolt and your motherboard is a goner! Maybe you could make a plexiglass mount that would support the heatsink's business end. I did that with some old 7900GTX's I had put copper waterblocks on a long time ago.

I know it's super heavy but thats why i said i'd buy a danger den bench table so it could lay flat with the board. Get me?

It's quad fire capable so down the road i was hoping to use that feature. i thought i might need a huge psu for that? Or would a 950-1000 be sufficient?
