I was about to type "hear the crunching sound as you clamp down your new CPU..."

... but I guess Google doesn't do so well with such long strings, still.

Really, though, hopefully nobody had any new computer build mishaps this holiday -- mine went shockingly well, at least after I trusted myself enough that I was putting my Cooler Master Hyper 212 heat sink on properly. I've never used an aftermarket heatsink before, and it's a monstrous thing, and I was terrified that I had butchered my CPU, as if the cracking sound of pushing the 1155 socket bar into place wasn't enough.

Any fun computer build stories to share?
