The Coolest said:I've crushed a Duron 800 when I over tightened a waterblock, I didn't really notice that it was very tight already and just went for "a few more turns". then it made a loud crunching sound, and wouldn't boot. but as said, first lay the HSF on the chip and only after that apply the clips. I removed an AX-7 which is a pain to put on, and even more pain to take off w/o any problems, and the chip works. the cores ARE more tough than they look to be
mine was a friend saying "1 more turn" then "Crunch"
that was when i first got water it sucked

When I first fired up my H20 rig, I didn't have the block seated fully....temps shot up to +70c I figured out what the problem was pretty quick though, and it ran great after that initial scare. Now I know how much tension to put on those four hold downs....I feel pretty confidant that when I fire up the duallie after leak testing, I'll have no problems.
