Hmm. I'm pretty AMD stupid, so....
But, at any rate, I still couldn't find a bracket kit for AMD... (I wouldn't want to mount a Xiggy without one. However, I'm not even sure if it'd fit in the case I'm getting).
Wait. Do you need a mounting kid for it if it's AMD? Isn't there some kind of bracket on the MB itself?
Okay. Checked around. Looks like you don't need a bolt-thru kit since the MB has one already. A 'duh' on my part.
However, don't you have to mount the fan horizontal on AMD systems? ...leading to premature fan failure?
Meh. Looks as if that ^ is the case. I'm just gunna revert back to my Freezer 7 Pro plan, which is what I choose initially. I don't feel like risking premature fan failure in a build that's not mine, nor do I feel like messing with covering up the RAM slots.
