Oh man, a fate worse than death. I think I would break down and cry if that ever happened to me.

They might end up having the heatsinks go directly into the case or something.... Like the bracket on the back of the mobo screw into the case for added support..... Anyways if i got a heatsink that heavy it would be in one of them case's that go under the monitor.......

It looks a little retarded to me. I think it would be better if the fan was on the other side, between the fins and plate, blowing the hot air out. Its just putting the hot air back on the socket.
