Re: installing the motherboard *Need advice*
I certainly wouldn't carry my motherboard around by the heatsink, but when installing it's not uncommon to hold by the heat sink. I'm sure you'll get varying answers on this, but I believe there's no harm if you're not being completely careless. That's not to say that nothing bad will ever come of it, but it's highly unlikely.
