also willing to trade my intel clip for amd clip if necessary, but advice on how to mount it is preferred.
We've had a lot of discussion / arguement about what mount will work and which one you need, but even with proper mount I would not use a 5 year old one CLC because galvanic corrosion is definitely going on in it, eating holes in the aluminum and depositing crude in waterblock microfins. All this happening with the help of CLC gremlins (1st cousins to computer gremlins), combined with working hoses and fittings removing and re-installing mean a leak in radiator, hose connections, etc. is very likey to happen, and we all know what liquid does when it gets on components .. it lets the gremlins loose and things stop working.
To elaborate, re-using a 5 year old H100 is likely is an invitation to disaster. The coolant level is low, pump has wear and corrosion is occuring. Coolant loss through plastics lowers coolant level .. and any corrosion inhibitors coolant had when new only lasts about 2 years at most. With corrosion occurringif it doesn't stop because of low coolant level or pump wear, there is an extremely high likelyhood of it starting to leak, especially after being moved around in the removal from old system and install in new system.
I know it costs money to get a new cooler, but not near as much as it will when H100 leaks.
