And of course now I just found that Thermalright sells an LGA775-to-478 mounting kit for a lot less.

beh

what else is new

thas one of the minor reasons i doan like 775

i bought a coolermaster screw-in heatsink to replace the stock one after my client complained that the computer was cutting out on him randomly. turns out it was getting temps like 93 degrees C lol.

it's a lil noisier but it works a whole lot better

Push pins are the devil. Good thing I have never had to us them on my own computer.

It is? My previous cooler didn't come with a bolt-through kit.

Same. Always spring loaded screws...

Yeah, push pins are lame... bolt through not only gives extra reassurance through not being plastic PoS, it also adds pressure to mounting....

pressure + 2 flat surfaces + less thermal compound = drastic temp drops

I've actually pushing so hard on a push pin I've killed a P5N32E-SLi motherboard. However I've not made them my enemy. I've learned to love them, although I did have to learn this love.

The love for the push pins is aquired from innitially pushing and pulling each PP through it's full pressing, locking and rotation sequence before the cooler is actually fitted to the board. Then either spit or spray grease is used between the black & white sliding parts of the pins whilst repeating the push pull sequence many times, untill each pin is moving properly without sticking at all through it's full twisting, pushing, releasing and locking cycle. All residual spit/grease must be removed before fitting.

Learning to love the push pin just takes a little time.
