    New 9800AIW, fortunately not the PRO edition. Swapped the stock fan/HS for a nicer one. Sink fell off without notice but with SMELL.
    Let's claim warranty.

    Unlucky, hope you can get another one. Fortunately I've never broken any expensive equipment. I once forgot to put the HSF on a P4 when I was making it for a friend....amazingly nothing happened to it, despite the fact I saw smoke... :worried:

    Yes SIR! Gots my hot glue gun ready. Those push through pins weren't good enough. Perhaps i'll use screws and bolts this time.
