A lot of people here, have the Tuniq, and haven't reported the motherboard bending or snapping off. If you installed it correctly and don't lug around your computer case, theres no reason for it to bend or crack.

The tuniq looks heavier than it really is... I have a tower so with the tower standing up the tuniq is sideways and it has no effects on the board at all.. Just like a stock hsf...

Thermalright 120 Ultra Extreme

FYI, your RAM, not only being 4 GB, but also since its value RAM is going to hurt your Overclock..

Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler for LGA775
It's a really good cooler for the money.

And if you want one of the best:
Newegg.com - Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail

Actually it's a lot cheaper at petra's:
Petra's Tech Shop

I second both of those^^

the performance of your ram and your ability to control its timings is crucial to overclocking. The better the ram, the more flexible the oc. For instance Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail is better than Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail .

And it is for the benefit of all those that come behind you. Your knowledge has given light to those of us who are wanting to buy new, better ram. Like me =)
