You may just want to get the Thermalright bolt-thru kit, which is what I ended up doing. Those plastic push pins are horrible.

Question when mounting a Heatpipe Direct Touch cooler:

How are you guys applying the AS5 or paste? I tried just placing a conventional layer over the CPU but then I read somewhere that you can run three lines down the middle of the pipes on the cooler and it is better because it gets into the cracks on the heatsink. Any suggestions on mounting this better? Right now my cooling is not very good at all. I have good airflow, etc, but the cooler is seated bad....

Any help!?!

I tried using thinner strips but it got worse. Should the fan push the air through the heatsink out the back or pull it out the back whilst facing the front of the case?

First you need to fill in the gaps around the heatpipes with paste and then run a small thin line horizontally across all three heatpipes.
