    I originally posted this as a reply in a similar post, However this became a totally different way to do this and I'm boasting
    I used the current AMD retainer in conjunction with the enzotech type-x
    First I had to grind off the side screw tabs

    Then I drilled 4 holes with a 1/16" drill bit into the AMD retention clip to match the Enzotech Type X bottom support post I wanted to keep these for more support, I used a Sharpie to mark each spot prior to drilling

    I then used Aaron Alpha (like super glue but industrial strength) to permenately bond the 2 together

    Following the steps above I ground off the tabs off the 775 mounting clips

    and placed them like this

    I then attached the Modded Heatsink fan retention clip to the motherboard
    [​IMG]
    Then I simply used 4 4-40 nuts to secure it to the mobo

    You may have noticed that when I placed the Enzotech type-X onto the Heatsink fan retention clip, I off set it to the left, I did that to align The HSF with the rear Exhaust fan

    I know it's not the best picture but look how exact the HSF and rear exhaust line up
