Default I swear if my head wasn't attached....

it would roll down the street.

I got my step-up 780i board yesterday and I'm installing everything back onto it. I get to the TRUE and realize that I left the 775 backplate attached to my 680i !! So I had to pay $10 to get the retention kit. Honestly, if I had all the money back I've made from stupid mistakes I could buy another whole computer! Oh well...live and learn, right?

That sucks. How long did it take for the backplate to come in?

It's not in yet. So I'm using the inefficient (48c idle!) stock hairdryer they call a HSF.

Did you actually use the 2sided tape on the backplate?
