Re: [Parts Check] Quickest failure?

BTW, I never lived installing a HSF with a flat head screwdriver. With the amount of force needed one slip and the motherboard would be toast,....burnt toast,....

Yeah pretty nerve-wracking how hard you had to push on some of those.

The mobo designers were generally good about not putting anything sensitive right under there though, no signal traces. I recall I slipped once and made a nice scratch but it was fine.
