Oh yeah, just remembered - mine doesn't have it either, which I so far 
appreciate - it's a bit more quiet and the heatsink looks quite solid. Had 
the system running for a few days, played a few games with max settings for 
some time, and haven't spotted any problems so far...
The only time I have been so (un)lucky as to burn my hand on a heatsink was 
when the fan on my older cyrix-150+(120, that is :) fell off and I was 
wondering why did I suddenly get a kernel crash :)
