    its entirely possible, but i've never done it before. just find a screw that fits through the hole with the right sized head on it, and have fun.

    I would maybe add some high tension spring in between... for some safe margins. But then again, we're not on the socket A era anymore :D

    Should be able to buy one of those $5 bracket kits that Xigmatek sells and use the screws and base plate off that.
