    Car comp version 1 had a regular ATX board with /AMD XP at 1400mhz
    Car comp version 2 has a via m9000

    My car goes from version 1 to version 2 and then back and forth depending on what I'm working on (if car comp version 2 is undergoing changes, car comp version one subs in)

    I drive it like a jeep all of the time.

    I would say you're pretty safe. Even if your heatsink weighed 1kg (which I doubt it does), in order to get 15kg of force pushing down on your processor, your car would have to accelerate vertically at 14G's (or 137.2 m/sec^2). I don't think the worst pothole in the world would put your car through that.

    And 14g is more than enough to get you unconsious. I would like to see a car subjected to 14g though

    Ill say your motherboard will get damaged if the weight of the heatsink is allowed to flex it too much.

    as we've all learned in the physics class, vibration effects are carried around matter by particles called vibratons

    what's a half mm of movement at, say, 50 times a seccond? descent acceleration required. Also, keep in mind that near 5kg of pressure is already applied by the clips, making the tolerances only for an additional 10.

    I don't think it's a problem, as i indicated earlier, but I think that in the right (wrong) setup there could be reason for concern.
