Has anyone had any concerns about the weight of the Prolimatech Megahalems heatsink, once installed on your motherboard with a fan? This heatsink is 790g, adding a fan will make it over 1kg. In my mind that's a lot of metal to be hanging off the board. I'm not the type that can ignore the gravity effects of this heatsink despite the fact it's cooling performance is top notch. I realize it has a backplate, but still, it made me wonder. Any thoughts welcome. Thanks.
