That's exactly what I wanted to know! I've got a m4a79t deluxe and I kinda doubt if it would make proper contact... would there be any real harm in heating up the HS in a oven and bending it slightly?

though is it a healthy temperature? I know those solid jap caps can go up to 105*C and the "tmax" of cpu is 100*C, but no one keeps it at those temps, right?
