Are there any risks of using a heavier cpu cooler? My friend purchased the thermalright 120 extreme, which i think is 800g without the fan, and thats pretty heavy.

I want to get a bigger zalman one but they weigh around 900g. I dont exactly move my system around much, except off the desk and onto the floor.

Am I just being paranoid?

I wouldnt worry about it tbh, ive used my TRUE black without issue (dual fans) the all copper version now is a different matter, it weighs about 2kg without a fan, btw id suggest the TRUE as its a signifigantly better cooler than the zalmans.
