The mounting plate that goes onto the back of the mobo keeps the Tuniq nice and snug. Motherboards aren't as flimsy as they're sometimes made out to be. I've had great success with lowering my temps after coming from an AC Freezer 7 Pro with the DS3L. Idle temps @ 3.6GHz with the Freezer were ~36c with MX-2. Got the TT120, lapped it, and popped it back on with some MX-2, and now I idle at ~31c with my coolest core at ~27c. I plan on lapping my Q6600 sometime soon, although I'm a bit skittish about messing up and not having a warranty to fall back on.
