Crap PC components

Post by gaztaylor » Thu Jun 09, 2011 2:13 pm

Just had the lug snap off the retaining bracket on the cpu socket on my motherboard, causing the cooler to drop off onto the graphics card. Fortunately it wasnt one of the huge coolers and it hasnt wrecked everything but it makes you wonder why such a crucial component is made from the crappiest plastic available.

Got a nice sealed loop watercooler on its way as it doesnt need the bracket to attach to mobo. PC is running but is running rather warm due to me re-attaching the old cooler with the same old thermal paste.

Always best to use some new paste.
