Well I was ticked at MSI cause the new KT4 ultra I had didnt have them......so i ran out and bought a brand new asus A7v8x which I am very very happy with. But than I see a few weeks later lol that Danger Den comes out with this http://dangerden.com/images/maze3/m3shd1_small.jpg it mounted on the KT4 ultra but will work with amd boards with no holes. Does anyone know how to get ahold of danger den besides the email links they never reply too......they must be doing really well not to care about sending you a part number and price so you can order it rt away......

Looks nice but I don't trust anything that goes on the zif socket. I've used a hold down from 2cool computers that goes on one of the tabs and I've used one for D-Tek that goes on all the tabs. In the end I ended up breakin three or four sockets.

Hmm. I made my own clips and mounted my homemade waterblock (check my homepage) without too many problems. I tend to hold klownin79's view though that a cooler/waterblock that's held through the M/B holes is going to hold much better than a ZIF socket mounted version.

My point exactly. Had a hold on go on the middle lugs and snapped. They should make the lugs out of something hard that isn't conductive. 4 holes are so much more secure... May cause vibrations on lugs as well.
