I'm planning to order my prometeia soon, and I currently have a P4 system. I was planning to get both an A64 and P4 mounting system, untill I saw the price of the kits. $100+ for either one :temper: .

I know it's possible to build your own hold-downs for these, and that it's rather simple, but is there anything you'd need to make, or modify, aside from a piece of metal to hold the head on the CPU?

I lost my mounting set for my TEC/WB to my swifty. I just went to home depo and build my own.
