I would think it could work, however you probably have to do the washer trick to increase the actuall pressure on the CPU.

I think it will work with all heatsinks. Definitely better than the crappy little push pins.

The benchmarkreviews reviewer said that the pushpins on the OCZ are much better than previous pins from coolers. May be worth giving it a try...

Do a bolt through like this:

...



...



...

That's my T.R.U.E. mounted with bolts. Those pics are from a little guide I did a bit back and therefore the comments in the photos ...

After lapping the CPU and the TRUE, there just wasn't enough pressure.

I'm using a backplate and the pressure/contact is insane.

Would like to see your results with the OCZ cooler if you do it.

An excellent example, s1rrah. Well-done.

As evidenced in the picture, any LGA775 mobo (AFAIK) can be adapted to accept bolt-through mounting.

Personally I am not very fond of the Push-pin/snap mounting methods.

As long as there are no obstructions, and there is full contact and even pressure (as intended) are present, you're golden.

BTW, to the OP and anyone else interested ...

I'm ordering a Vendetta this week simply for the fun of testing it against the TRUE.

Lots of questions/mysticism floating around the intrawebz regarding the two coolers and want to do a straight up test of the two. Gonna lap the vendetta since the TRUE is lapped and will bolt mount them both for the comparison.

Thanks for the info. Good read.

I'm still utterly confused at the differences among review sites though.

Legionhardware, which is a review site I personally hold in very high regard, claims the Vendetta 2 tests worse than a Zalman 9500.

Other review sites say the Vendetta 2 tests better than the T.R.U.E.

I mean. What gives?

I gotta get one and test it myself. It's only like 30 bucks or something so no biggee. Will most likely freebie it once I'm done testing (I love the TRUE; even if the OCZ beats it, I'm keeping the TRUE. Took me 5 hours to lap that bastardo!)

I may experiment with filling the grooves between the sink base and the heatpipes with some solder flux as well ... something that seems worth trying.
