Id try that if i had a 775 board..as you said, and ive seen it myself..the cpu fits in the little square where there is no space to move around, with a bolt down cooler it would be fine...lets see who will be first to try it.

AFAIK it doesnt, but i guess it could be different per board. would also depend on the HSF. the stock sink, or the blue orb(not sure 'bout this one) for example have a round base that would fit trough the hole, and wouldnt need the cradle to be removed.

the bar you move down to lock the CPU in place also presses the cradle down as well. im not willing to try it, but if someone else does it with good results and no risk id be willing to try it.

I think that would help because its technically blocking the contact area

wow.. this sounds really tempting, but the chip itself is above the cradle, at least from what ive seen.

I'd try it, but I glued one of my pins back together and forgot it was still wet and not one of the pins is glued to the motherboard...

It is BS.
1) If it did, wouldn't Intel engineers notice and have redesigned the clamp?
2) The top of the IHS is completely exposed already. The clip only holds the edge of the processor. So how would removing the clamp help?

Reps for that. ^^
post #20 of 34
Interesting, anyone want to try it?

It would be very challanging for me to try since I have to mount my cooler with the board face down so the CPU would just fall out.
