TX-2..
Any DVD-RW
Rosewill RCX-z775
____________
$30..

So you can spend $120 on a board like an Biostar TFHP45(if you don't mind a rebate, which I'm assuming you do: then you could check this out: Newegg.com - ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards) but otherwise stick with the -e

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TP45HP LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I don't think it's the weight as much as using to much force when trying to push the pins in.

Last time I had to put my hsf back on I used a screwdriver to push down the inner pins and then pushed the top pieces down over them and it worked pretty good.
