    BBQ's with indirect heating works well too, I love grill marks on my case !

    Oh, so you did it the easy way.

    I like the oven trick better, I'm going to try it.
    I hope you are kidding. A hairdryer on low is a better idea.
    No, I'm not actually. Why would I be kidding ?

    I'm on the laptop now as I decided to put the whole 'puter in the oven on low so I can rework all of the cables at once.
    AMD doesn't have a max temp listed for a FX-8350 but from looking through several forum they say it throttles at only 70C, or 158F. Plastic pieces can melt, metal panels can distort.

    I know a while back you could put a dead GPU in the oven for a little while and it could bring it back to life, there were many guides online for doing it but it was only if it was dead. Obviously I would not recommend doing it on any stuff that is still working.

    Thank's for the concern and research you did.
    The experiment went very well though. I t was only in there for maybe 10 minutes at the lowest setting possible. When I took it out all looked good. I slowly bent the cables as I liked and then let everything cool down for a while.
    It looks really good now. A little quirky though !

    I once dropped a cell phone in a bucket of water, saved it by putting it in the oven at the lowest temp for an hour. It worked fine after.

    I hope that was a typo, yeah we all need to take a piss in the morning, but I assume you meant take a pic in the morning
