so your tuniq, with similar weight is significantly taller, so the distance from center of gravity (near the middle of the fin structure) to mobo is significantly more than with the GeminII...therefore if the geminII would snap your mobo, your tuniq would have broken it in two already...

Yes but most of the MASS of the GeminII is not toward the middle of the actual structure. You need to find the exact center of mass, which I am willing to bet is probably on the fin structure, even further with fans attached which is definitely further than the Tuniq's center of mass.
And please do not forget that the bracket that actually secures the heat sink to the board is much shoddier on the GeminII.

is the bracket seriously much worse for the GeminII? then i guess it would be more taxing...also yeah you are right but i dont know if its really more far out than a tuniq. whatever it is i bet they are at the very least close...the fan on a tuniq is between the fins, but still near the top...pushing cg higher still so that may partially compensate for the fans on the geminII

Mounting is a piece of cake, it takes like 20 seconds to do. Just lay it on the table upside down. set the mobo on top, and put on the four nuts that hold it down. Looks like this.

Yes it pretty big, but if you have a roomy mid-tower or a full tower there should be no problem. The 12cm fans hang over the edge and blow onto the RAM. Mounting is easy, but you will have to remove the motherboard if the motherboard tray does not have a cut-out behind the socket.
Then my BT is better I idle 23c at 22c ambients.

Humidity also plays a huge and often overlooked role.
