One way to prevent this is a copper shim, which i strongly suggest if your going to be takin your case to lan parties, etc. Although it will make your temps go up a lil, as much as 6C but prolly not that much
here is a pic of my chipped core, you can see the missing pieces around the edges:

I had read a review that said that Zalman had issued a warning regarding the weight, but it was only a review, I have not been able to find anybody who had trouble with it.

Did anyone notice that the person that started this thread and asked the question....never came back?
Does it mean that the person got his/her answer and didn't bother to respond?
Does it mean that he's still monitoring the thread, but doesn't want to respond?

When I went to QuakeCon '03, there was some guy there who was asking for help with a dead mobo. They announced from the NOC that someone needed help, and me being one of the few true PC techs there, offered to help. This guy literally threw the PC together, worked his job, drove close to 16 hours straight to get to QC, his car boke down on the way, he hadn't slept in like 24 hours, stood 3 hours in line, and when he finally gets into the BYOC, his PC won't boot. The thing wouldn't even POST. We swapped CPU, RAM, vid, sound, etc. We had ALL spare parts there except for the mobo.
Poor guy - all that trouble for a dead PC.

Who started this topic, anyway?

To compare, I ran Wolfenstein last night along with AIM, IRC, playing a music CD with WMP, and email (Outlook 2000). After gaming for 30 minutes, my CPU temp was 114F and my mobo temp was 89F. This was with my Dragon Orb 4 on low (approx 3000 RPM).
Once I get my Zalman installed, I'll post the temps with the same load scenario. That way the person who posted here can decide if the Zalman is one they might want to consider.
