I think I might just try that. Prolly going to go looking for bigger screws this weekend. Ordering the Silverstone fan tonight. Also lapping my cpu didn't go over TO well. Didn't take enough time I guess. Need to go do it over again. If I get this mounting situation worked out I might just take of the IHS. That should drop my temp by a good ammount. Thanks For you help.

EDIT: How much is Velcro adhesive? Walmart should have it right?

If you really want the best, keep that BT. Lapp it, then upgrade the fan to the FM121, then go buy the swiftech ramsinks and glue them on the the base of the BT using arctic epoxy glue. This i believe will outperform any tuniq tower.

It's a little hard to see in this pic but the BT comes with a I bracket and two screws and a few nuts that you should use. The manual says clearly not to use it with the plastic backplates

The velcro you use shouldn't be a cheapo brand. The piece with adhesive to my psu body is about 1" wide x 2" long. The piece fastened to it is actually one of the cloth/velcro cable ties that come included with OCZ power supplies (in 4 different colors). Its about 1/2" wide x 5" long and has a slit in the end like a cable tie. I used this to loop around the top of the fan grill and it misses the fan blade by a decent amount. Regular velcro should work just as well, or a long plastic cable tie. There are numerous ways to create a hanger system to support the cantilevered load off the mobo. gL

well the only problem is... the nuts are so damn small.. how am I supposed to get them tight.... there is no way haha i tried hard but its still moving a little. and yes I did read the instruction and used the I backplate. (The DFI board screws were to short) and the longer ones did not fit on the backplate. so I was forced to).

EDIT: AS we speak I am lapping my old 3200+. Seeing If I can't get the shiney look and nice copper look . If I succeed I will do it to my 4400 and then my tt... its hard to lap the tt its so big and not very handy haha. I might post some pictures of the 3200 later tonite.

Don't mean to quadruple post guys. But Here is what my final product looked like. I think I did a good job. Now lets move on to the 4400+ as soon as I get more sandpaper

i wouldn't take off the IHS if you are using the BT.too big a chance of overtightening and crushing the core.

Yah leave the IHS on with the BT and lap the BT up to prefferably 2000 grit. Then switch to the Silverstone 120mm with 110CFM. Also if you can still move the cooler slightly, I'd suggest trying to tighten a bit more. You want the BT firm against your CPU.

Plus use the screws that came with the BT for sure. TT provides the right stuff for a good install (accept the damn BT VX or what ever )
