gotta crush that socket for maximum therrrrrrrrrmaltraaaaaaaaaaaanferrrrrrrrrrrr
Well, yeah, but it's more of a mental thing for me. If all the screws are on as tight as they go, then I know the pressure is even. If I gotta mess around with loosening the screws, I'm gonna feel like the pressure is uneven cause the screws won't be on exactly even...

this is a two screw mounting plate you screw the 4 screws that hold the plate on and then two screws for the cooler

I like this system as it makes mounting unmounting easy but initial install can be a pain
