Nobody's talking, but you gotta admit: it sucks. Maybe it was the shipping company or it's just a special case.

It could be the company. I thought they do double-checks before packaging. But darnit! I want to see your system up and running Gabb! :happy: Remember to post your wire management on my wire management thread! Please and thank you! :laughing:

I dont think it was the shipping company...I mean it was packaged pretty well...then again as my friend noted: 2 very weak white PLASTIC screws holding the very heavy north bridge heat sink in place...if it was rocked very severely no doubt that thing might come off
