I am installing a Zalman 9700 on an Abit IP35-Pro MOBO with an e8400 CPU. With everything assembled as per the instructions except for the final connection of the S clip to the support ring the ends of the S clip are approximately 5mm above the top of the support ring at each side. Is this normal? I'm concerned that the force required to pull the ends of the S clip to the surface of the ring when the screws are tightened will break something. I've done a search and others have complained that this mount is too loose. It seems I may have the opposite problem. I may just be overly cautious but I don't want to break anything.
