Also, I should point out that you do not Need to bow it. It performs great just the way it is. Bowing might knock 1 or 2 degrees, but it is not a night and day solution. If you are milking your CPU for every last MHZ, go for it, but if you just want good temps and simple, leave it stock! I only bowed mine because I had to open it up to clean it anyway, and I figured since I went that far, I might as well install thicker O-ring.
