Ok, here's the deal. Make sure when you go to screw down that block to screw it down evenly. I have never had a problem chiiping any CPUs with this block but it never hurts to be careful. I screw mine down using the x meathod. I do 2 at a time until they are pretty snug then I do the other 2 at the same time. Then I just touch it up. It's very hard to chip anything with this mounting hardware and my block is screwed down about a 1/2" from the block itself. Nice, tight and never moves so I know I get maximum contact. Try it this way, and have fun with this block. You will see incredible decreases in temps with it as it is one of, if not THE best block out there right now.

If you're going to use the pelt, you may want to check into coating the back of the motherboard around the CPU with some type of sealer to protect against moisture. I've read that area tends to have a lot of condensation.

Let me know how it turns out, I'd like to play with a pelt as well.
