A little bit, but they're all internal wick type heatpipes if that is what you mean.
Typically there is a 0-3*c difference (varies by heatsink) between laying the mobo down for gravity return and it standing up forcing wicking return.

I expected some kind of technical debate to arise.... Oh well.

ALT+(number) seems to change tabs here in Ubuntu/firefox.
Which is actually pretty awesome, I've been wondering how to change tabs with the keyboard for quite some time.
