For xmas santa gave me a new Cosmos S case & Corsair HX1000 PSU. Anyways, i shift all my parts across to it last night but lifting it off the table after the build i heard a horrible crack in my back, I don't know how but luckily I was some how able to hold on to the PC and carefully place it on the ground before I collapsed on the floor. It turns out that I slipped a disk in my back, next time I am going to take more care. Amazingly I am able to move around today but it is very sore still.

I am still in pain but I am able to move around slowly which I am thankful for. I didn't get much sleep last night which hasn't helped me today either :(

Good luck with all that.

Next time go for a fully aluminum case like Lian Li. :D

Best fix. Get on all fours and take it. My ex said it worked wonders. I'll be happy to show you how. ::D:

Seriously, I've almost hurt myself bad with my Stacker. Coolermaster build solid cases that's for sure...

I know how you feel. Saturday I was leaving the hardware store with a 90 lb bag of mortar on my right shoulder, when a friend in the parking lot said something. I turned to see who it was, and I hear a pop. I tore a muscle in the middle right below my shoulders.

Been taking 1000mg of ibuprofen every 8 hours since. I have a heating pad on my back right now as I type this.. :o
