In one of the posts I read was mention of having to be careful of the cpu air cooler's weight because of warranty concerns.
This caused me to think (a particularly painful experience) that maybe I should get some info from Intel.
The following is an excerpt from their reply.
"Thank you for contacting Intel® Customer Support.
I understand that you want to know what is the maximum weight of cooling solution for the Intel® Core 2 Duo processors.
Currently we do not have that information since we do not recommend using third party cooling solutions, this is because by using third party cooling solutions will void the processor warranty."
I find it difficult to believe that such a large segment of the computer aftermarket industry could exist by making products that would void the warranty on a new processor.
Your thoughts please.
