im dumb...
i bought the maze-2 waterblock. it works in my setup nicely. only problem is i can't put the durn thing onto my mobo. the four holes where you put in the screws were apparently not interesting to msi so they didn't include em. anyways, to make a long story short i need ideas on how to hook the sucker on. are they contraptions made specifically to hook it on like the normal heatsink, or will i be looking at some modding? any ideas would be appreciated!

Email Danger Den about your situation. You may want to consider the origional Amazing Block. It works well.

msi ktz pro2-a. i looked all around the dang processor holder thingy and saw no holes whatsoever. :-( i *hope* im just stupid and dont see them, but with the amount of time i looked i know they arent there. i emailed the guys at dangerden, they responded probably within an hour. great service ;-) explaining what board i have and my ideas, gonna see what they have to say. if that doesnt pan out ill either try to make something to hold it down or try maybe the original maze.

well i got the picture from there sight and I can't seen the holes around the socket either. Looks like the board is not quite built to AMD's specs. Get the Amazing block, its a great performer.

That's odd. I thought AMD had those holes made standard in all Socket A motherboards. I just looked at my Pro2-A and no, it doesn't have the holes either.
