    Yeah and dont do what my numbskull friend did when he tried to build his..... Stupid lad put his ram in using a hammer! :S and on another occasion he asked me for help as the heatsink wasnt doing its job properly I told him over the phone to take it off, apply more thermal compound (after cleaning the old stuff off) so what does the numbty do? Takes the fan off when the thing is still powered on! :S
