    It works better than you think. I had no difficulty pushing them in (as opposed to stock) and E2200 idles at 15 and loads at about 37-38 so the contact is just fine.

    Are the xigmatek push pins easier? Cause the ones on my stock cooler and AC Freezer are a biotch.. Gotta push harder than what I like to pop them in and they bend.

    i put absolute minimal effort in pushing them in, my sister even pushed the last one in without any effort(i put the fan on first, then installed and my fingers were too big)hah but intels stock took like 2000N of force. These took maybe .0001N :)

    Hah sure thing. Try the push pins first, if they aren't sufficient and wont install rather easily, than look for another mounting bracket. But at least give them a shot ;)

    Will do. Think one could cool a E7200 to 3.2ghz?

    you sign into the account and look up the purchase. It should say somewhere on the page to print copy of reciept, or select all and print in greyscale!

    It reqires an address to send it all in to , snail mail style. Shoot them an email!

    I just put one on today in my spare rig. Works great and gets great temps, but it does flex my BloodIron when it's installed(take a bit of modding to get it to clear the stock NB HS!).

    Im not really sure. The instructions I recieved said to mail a copy of purchase and UPS, I have a printer so I was happy with that. Include the lack of a printer to them and ask if you can send a screenshot of the eggs reciept?

    I wll suggest you buy the Xigmatek fast, because right now they still giving away their bolton kit for free as long as you show proof of purchase. I read their kit will available through retail very soon, I am worry they will stop this offer. I am still waiting for the S1284 available to purchase and plan to get 1 more kit for free!!
