Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro Clips?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just a quick one. I was looking at buying the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro and noticed it just clips onto the plastic mount with 3 clips on each side. The thing is the plastic heatsink mount on my motherboard only has one clip on each side.

Will this be strong enough to hold it? Or....?

Thanks

Nobody any idea then? Perhaps I can get a new mount or just go for a different Heatsink + Fan?

Cheers

In all candor........... no. The AC Freezer Pro is a wonder, but its mount is really what holds it back from being a really first-class cooler. I'd look elsewhere...

I don't think that it makes much contact with the other mounts... It seems that the heatsink latches onto the middle ones and the side ones are there just for stability. I'm sure they would be nice to have, with such a big heatsink, but you should be find without them... New mounts are only a few dollars though... It would be a lot safer than risking socket\\cpu damage.
