gzt: That's cool. You got the go ahead to have someone else check out the cooler and repaste it. USB thing is not serious - but not a good idea to turn it on now in case it causes a short and causes something to fail. Easy enough to fix. Not a great look for the warranty though.
Yeah, I can't figure if the cooler is in place properly myself so now to find a place in Welly.
I'm debating fessing up today and offering to pay them to fix the USB ports OR getting that bit fixed myself..
Typical I look at fans and manage to hurt the USB ports, *facepalm*... OK I'll keep it off until I figure one way or the other. Sooo annoyed I just did that! I could have just packed it up and shipped it back to them tomorrow...
EDIT: Just rung the guy and confessed to messing the USB ports from the outside.. He seemed OK and said would have a look.
