Yeah, I think so. The Vendetta 2 HSF came with the push pins, and I don't feel safe using push pins except on lightweight coolers and stock HSF.

If you look at the retention bracket, you will see 2 holes for each end for the HSF. Unless you are talking about something else.

I'm sure it would be safe as no manufacturer will provide push pins if their HSF can't support it. However, I would like to know that it is secured.

Why not just mod it and use a simple bolt and wing nut?

Because my modding skills are bad. I can never do things like this, I end up screwing it up one way or another, which is why I rather spend some money that already does it for me.

Is it possible to put something like that on a 775?

That is an AM2 mounting clip thingy.

Probably not.

Yeah, I know. I've always liked the AM2 clip, it felt so secure, kind of a pain to install and remove as you need quite a lot of force.

You will absolutely hate it once you attempt to install an orochi with the heatpipes facing the northbridge.

Took me an hour and bent the clips really badly.

Me too. Except I don't like how you can't mount most aftermarket heatsinks vertically. I had to buy a custom bracket to mount my Xiggy vertically.


In other news:
34 people were charged with M.I.P.'s today at our local St. Patrick's day parade. Silly kids; drinking in public is for adults.
