tonschkHi, thank you for reply and advice, I think Intel needs to rethink better where to place this small expansion gas holes, I think the IHS of the CPU is a bad idea, EVGA got a better idea to place this tiny hole below the processor socket within the motherboard PCB, thank you

Deliriousfirst time I've ever seen something like that.
