I figured why not try to straighten it, I bent it and New egg woulda had to reject a return,,,,So I was just careful as I could be! I feel like a moron for droppin it and superman for fixing it!

You are probably not stupid enough to drop one l;ike I did either...I set it on a cluttered work space dragged a lamp cord past it and BANG...There it goes,,,off the table, into the chair...Where it fell out of plastic case...and onto my hard wood floors....Those things are quite heavy and dense, I bet if you hit someone with a quickly thrown CPU you could do massive damage!
