reminds me of a video I once saw...
several guys, messing around with computers..
they have a computer setup on a desk, just sitting there, the mother board on the table, no case..
the heat sink is just sitting on the cpu, not latched into place...
they have the system up and running... over clocked.... then they out of the blue grab the heat sink off and step back.. not even 3 seconds later.. POP!
the cpu flew off of the mother board, and landed on the ground, and it was VERY VERY HOT!
it also left a hole in the mother board, and a hole in the table for that matter... =\
