It clamps down real tight. I was more concerned about the capacitors around the socket area though tbh as the mounting bars just clear them.

Wow... that thing is a beast. If it fell off it would take off your graphics card(s) and souncard on the way down! I wonder if it would fit in a 900- looks like it would be a pretty tight squeeze tbh, but i really like the idea of near-silent air cooling. Decent review as well (y)

Great review mate.

This is a massive cooler, I would be a little afraid for my mb though. But I would certainly like to have one of these.

Looks one heck of a beast.

Might be a bit intrusive for my liking, but u can`t argue with results.
