The site in question was contacted. They have denied it is ours even though I can tell you that it is either a damn good copy (which it really doesn't seem to be) or indeed ours. The fan angle is the same, the little dent I put in the ram's thermal pad is there, my lame reapplication of the VRM thermal pad is shown, the shadows are the same and when superimposed the images line up to a tee.

At this time we are still deciding what route to take since this usage is in clear violation of our Terms and Conditions. No, we were not contacted with a request to use it...a request we have granted many times in the past I may add. In addition, all diplomatic routes between the two sites was stopped at the behest of the owner of the site in question after we offered to allow them to use it as long as the watermark was reapplied.

I must say I am disappointed since I count myself as a diplomatic type of person and I wanted a quick resolution to this.
