TRUE AM2 Bolt-Thru Bracket with SI-128?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Would I be able to pull it off?

Im thinking of the bolt thru kit purely coz the SI-128 standard retention clip is about as stable as a Paper Skyscraper. It rotates VERY easily.

Also, would the added pressure increase its cooling effectiveness?

It will work.

What would work even better: Using the Big Typhoon's H-Bar retention system. That's what I've got to hold my SI-128SE onto my motherboard right now.
